CarePartners is a long-standing, non-profit that cares for people with dementia and their caregivers.
"Sometimes they have challenges, like being able to interact with the world around them on a day-to-day basis," said Katie Scott with CarePartners. "So getting proper care is important to them as an individual so they can feel like people again. It’s also really helpful for the families."
