Living with Alzheimer’s: For Caregivers
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size


Audience:
Caregivers of people with:
• Early-stage Alzheimer’s disease
• Middle-stage Alzheimer’s disease
• Late-stage Alzheimer’s disease

Overview:
When someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, friends and family have many questions. What does the diagnosis mean? What kinds of plans need to be made? What resources are available to help? As the disease progresses, new questions reflect growing needs for skills, programs and services.

Join us for this series of programs that provide answers to the questions that arise in the early, middle and late stages of the disease. Hear from those directly affected and learn what you need to know, what you need to plan, and what you can do at each point along the way.

Topics covered will include:
• Developing a care team
• Legal and financial planning
• Coping strategies
• Care and treatment options
• Communicating and connecting
• Maximizing independence

Programs and topics are offered based on stage of the disease. Programs within each stage are sequential and should be taken in order. If you are not sure which program or stage is right for you, please call our 24/7 Helpline 800.272.3900.

Presentation time:
