You Are Not Alone

During November, we recognize the impact of caregiving and honor the more than 15 million Americans caring for someone with Alzheimer's disease. Click here to Honor a Caregiver

President Bill Clinton named the week of Thanksgiving as a time to honor caregivers in 1997, and that has since expanded to National Family Caregivers Month. Whether you need information about early-stage caregiving, middle-stage caregiving, or late-stage caregiving, the Alzheimer's Association is here to help. Click here for the Caregiver Center


Living in the Moment: Caring for a Loved One With Alzheimer’s Disease

Posted in Brain & Nervous System, Podcasts by UVM Medical Center on Nov 16, 2017 07:05 am

November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month and National Family Caregivers Month. Alzheimer’s is a disease that affects five million Americans. It damages the brain while causing a steady loss of memory, speech impairment, and interference with daily activities. During November, the Alzheimer’s Association recognizes the more than 15 million people in America providing unpaid care to a loved one living with Alzheimer’s or Dementia.

This week on HealthSource Radio, we spoke to Pamela Beidler, Director of Programs and Outreach at the Alzheimer’s Association of Vermont and Liz Vogel, who is a caregiver for her father, who has Alzheimer’s. Listen to the interview clicking here, or to read the transcript click here.
