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 Support

Having Alzheimer's disease or looking after a loved one with it can become isolating as the disease progresses and care becomes more involved. The Web is a great place to connect with others who are in similar situations. Whether the person on the other end of the computer is in Alaska or Alabama doesn't matter; what matters are the connections, the understanding, and the peer-to-peer advice that you can share.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Check with the national associations and your local chapters to find if there are message boards, support groups, or e-mail news lists that you can join. Although not designated support sites, they are reliable ways to share questions and concerns.
  • To read more information on support for caregivers, look back to the "Alzheimer's Caregivers" section of this guide.
  • Blogs are another valuable way to share in other's experiences. Not only can you benefit from a blogger's insight, you can also usually comment on entries.
