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 Caregivers

Taking care of someone with Alzheimer's disease can be hard and even lonely sometimes. There are many sites on the Web that can give you the information and support you need to be able to continue caring for your loved one, and also to continue living your own life. These sites can provide advice on how to find respite care and support, how to work your way through the financial maze, and how to keep your loved one safe. Message boards are a great way to communicate with others who are experiencing the same challenges you are.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • You can get a lot of support from the various Alzheimer's associations, both local and national. Not only can you get basic information, but you can also look to message boards and newsletters for advice and support.
  • If you have a question that's not answered on a Web site, look for a "Contact Us" section. The staff may be able to answer questions that are not addressed on the site.
