Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month


June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month according to the Alzheimer’s Association. Here’s how you can be more aware.


If you are a caregiver for someone with Alzheimer’s, you may be overwhelmed with a new diagnosis, struggling to find the resources you need (and your loved one can afford), or feeling the strain of caring for someone who can’t remember correctly. Check out
• The Alzheimer’s Association’s Alzheimer’s and Dementia Caregiver Center at https://www.alz.org/care/overview.asp.
You’ll find day-to-day help, support, care and planning tools, and a toll-free helpline.
• Alzheimer’s dot gov at http://www.alzheimers.gov/caregiver_resources.html.
You’ll find links to help you find local resources, a toll-free help line, and counseling and support information.
• HelpGuide.org at http://www.helpguide.org/articles/caregiving/support-for-alzheimers-and-dementia-caregivers.htm.
You’ll find help useful information and help for both the cared for and the caregiver.
 
I’ve posted a number of things on the topic of dementia and/or Alzheimer’s, both on this blog and on the Health Horizon’s Facebook page. I suggest reading the following:
