Baue Becomes the 1st Alzheimer’s Friendly Funeral Home in St. Charles County

Baue Funeral Homes, Crematory, & Cemetery teamed up with Home Instead St. Peters and their Alzheimer’s Friendly Business program to better understand the disease, learn techniques to provide our community, who are affect by Alzheimer’s or another type of dementia, with the most compassion and respect. All of Baue Funeral Homes, Crematory, & Cemetery’s staff is now trained to be Alzheimer’s friendly.

Alzheimer’s disease is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time, becoming severe enough to interfere with daily tasks.

“Home Instead has created a thoughtful and thorough Alzheimer’s Friendly Business℠ program to train businesses in their communities on how to best work with those who have Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia,” said Chairman and Founder of USAgainstAlzheimer’s.

Research conducted by Home Instead, Inc., franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care network, points to isolation as a risk factor for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and their family caregivers. What’s more, these caregivers say they fear going into the community because businesses can be busy and confusing for their loved ones. Learn more about the impact of this isolation on families.

Paul Baue, 3rd Generation, “The biggest take away for me was a better understanding of how people with this disease react to different situations and how better to handle this in the future.”

By being an Alzheimer’s friendly business, we plan to comfort and help our families even more through the process of funeral arrangements and ceremonies.
