    Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease can be challenging and emotional for families. Scheduling and managing care, understanding your loved one’s needs, and providing support are critical roles of a caregiver that can be tough to navigate.

    I was impressed with the great conversation in the chat rooom during the webinar. The attendees really supported one another with ideas and strategies. One of the hardest things for me right before my mother was diagnosed was I had trouble getting her to agree to go see her doctor with me. Finally I had the idea to solicit the help of my mother’s very kind neighbor who agreed to “remind” my mother of the appointment for her annual check up and offer to take her to the doctor’s office. I then met them there and was able to speak to my mother’s doctor about my observations on what did not appear to me to be simple “senior” moments.
