Caregiving Tips. Caregiver Wellness. Brain Healthy Cooking. Research Breakthroughs. Real Stories.
The Alzheimer’s Care Blog connects family caregivers with leading academic, clinical and dementia care experts in assisted living, as well as guest bloggers with fitness and nutrition expertise, who work day in and day out with individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and the families who love them. These professionals have a wealth of experience and practical advice to share.
Popular blog entries have covered subjects such as how to be in the moment with a parent who has Alzheimer’s, when to recognize that driving has become an issue, and which spices pack the most “brain healthy” punch. Families and caregivers also appreciate hearing the good news about promising research, learning specific behavorial techniques to help their family member navigate their new and often frightening world, and how to take care of themselves so they don’t experience caregiver burn-out.
The interactive nature of the blog experience provides family caregivers a platform to ask questions of our experts, as well as share their ideas, struggles and joys with others in the same situation through our Real Stories feature.
