In the middle stage of Alzheimer’s disease, those who were care partners now become hands-on caregivers. Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or other dementias is exceptionally demanding. The level of assistance provided by caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s or other dementias tends to be extensive, compared with caregivers of other older adults.
To address these issues, the Alzheimer’s Association® will provide a free three-part educational workshop to discuss common issues faced by families affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Topics to be discussed during the workshop are:
· May 21: Part 1 – Communication, relationship changes, personal care, and hospitalizations
The Alzheimer’s Association is the premier source of information and support for the five million Americans with Alzheimer’s disease. Through its national network of chapters, it offers a broad range of programs and services for people with the disease, their families and caregivers and represents their interests on Alzheimer’s-related issues before federal, state and local government and with health and long-term care providers.
Part 1 of this series will be held as a webinar. Registration is required. For more information and to register, go to alz.org/CRF.
