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.

I Have Alzheimer's

With the right information and support, you can learn how to live with Alzheimer's and prepare for the future. In this section, you'll find newsletters you can read to stay informed, and message boards and forums you can join to connect with other patients or caregivers. A combination of knowledge and community can help to provide the much-needed support one needs to face the life changes brought on by Alzheimer's.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Take advantage of the newsletters and message boards that many of the Alzheimer's associations offer. They're a good way for you to learn through others' experiences, to benefit from the questions others ask, and even post some of your own.
  • In addition to reading information on Alzheimer's Association sites, explore sites of research centers at colleges and universities. Many post press releases that can give you greater understanding of how the disease may affect you.
  • Your doctor is the one who knows best what's going on with your body and your illness. Doing independent research will enhance the value of your conversations with her, but she's still the one to look to for definitive answers.
