Managing Stress #1 and #2
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

#1: Understand what’s going on as early as possible.

Symptoms of Alzheimer’s may appear gradually. It can be easy to explain away changing or unusual behavior when a loved one seems physically healthy. Instead, consult a doctor when you see changes in memory, mood or behavior. Don’t delay; some symptoms are treatable.

#2:  Know what community resources are available.

Contact your local Alzheimer’s Association office. The staff can help you find Alzheimer care resources in your community. Adult day programs, in-home assistance, visiting nurses and meal delivery are just some of the services that can help you manage daily tasks.
