Caring for a person with Alzheimer’s often involves a team of people, and no matter your role, there is much to do and plenty to know. But it doesn’t have to be a lot of work to find the resources and support you need. The Alzheimer’s and Dementia Caregiver Center can help. While there, be sure to check out the Community Resource Finder and the Care Team Calendar.
This online social networking community is designed specifically for people with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers. Members can connect and communicate with people who understand their unique challenges. They can also pose questions and offer solutions to dementia-related issues, create public and private groups organized around a dedicated topic and contribute to message boards.
