In this most recent video, we discuss resources for dementia patients and families with doctors from the Alzheimer’s Association.
Alzheimer’s and Dementia Resources
In the newest addition to the Seniorly CareTalks, Dr. Elizabeth Edgerly and Alexandra Morris of Alzheimer’s Association cover dementia resources including memory care, and their importance to families affected by the illness.
The Alzheimer’s Association is the world’s largest nonprofit funder of Alzheimer’s science, and their dual focus consists of creating a world without the disease and enhancing the quality of life for Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers.
Their suggested resources for dementia patients and families include specific memory care resources and support, including:
Information on local resources
First understanding what type of dementia your loved one has can help guide what kind of resources families need, whether it’s individual memory care consultations or assisted living options.
Other dementia resources include the National Alzheimer’s and Dementia Resource Center (NADRC), which has webinars, assessment tools and information about Alzheimer’s Disease.
