Alzheimer's Disease: More than Just Memory Loss

If you or someone close to you has Alzheimer's disease, chances are you're asking questions about the condition faster than your doctor can answer them. The Internet gives you access to information, outside of office hours, that enables you to find quick answers to urgent questions, and also helps you ask doctors, nurses, or other healthcare professionals the right questions.

Alzheimer's is more than just memory loss; it's a disease that robs your body of its functions, bit by bit. In this section, you'll find links to Web sites that help you understand the disease, its progress, and how it affects not only the patient but friends and family as well.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • If you're going to look beyond the sites we've suggested, it's essential to read the "about us" section of a site to ensure that the information you're getting is from a credible source.
  • Web sites vary in the types of resources they offer, so you should know what kind of information you're looking for before you start. For example, some sites are primarily directed toward people who live with advanced Alzheimer's, whereas others may be directed at people in the early stages of the disease.
  • Once you find a site that you like and find useful, check for sites that it recommends. Usually listed as "additional sources" or "external links," these can provide you with another path to follow.
