New online tip sheets for Alzheimer’s caregivers

August 7, 2012


Every day can bring a new change or challenge for caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s disease. Now, practical information and advice is at hand with a new series of online tip sheets from the Alzheimer’s Disease Education and Referral (ADEAR) Center, a service of the National Institute on Aging (NIA).

Based the NIA publication called Caring for a Person with Alzheimer’s Disease: Your Easy-to-Use Guide from the National Institute on Aging, the tip sheets offer reliable, easy-to-understand information on a range of issues. They can help caregivers of people at any stage of the disease—mild, moderate or severe.

Topics include managing personality and behavior changes, coping with agitation and aggression, daily activities, managing medicines, helping family and friends understand Alzheimer’s, and many more.
