Dealing with a family member with Alzheimer’s is challenging. Start your search for information and help by checking out the following two US government websites that provide up-to-date information on the disease and practical caregiver materials and resources:
- The National Institute on Aging discusses Alzheimer’s causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, prevention and recent research news and clinical studies. It also provides free related publications and more than 25 caregiving tip sheets (in downloadable PDF and Kindle formats) covering everything from agitation and wandering to healthy eating and home safety.
- Alzheimer’s.gov looks at the disease’s symptoms, diagnosis and stages. In addition, the site presents information and links on treatment options, legal and financial considerations, community support services, and caregiver help.
