Helping someone with Alzheimer's or another form of dementia is one of the most stressful challenges you can face.
I've been through the worry, frustration, resentment, and feelings of helplessness with five different close family members. I've also been privileged to worked with many of the leading experts in dementia care while building the Alzheimer's channel and educational resources for Caring.com and creating curriculum for Alzheimer's Universe, among other caregiver-education projects.
I can help you.
