Caring for a person with Alzheimer’s has got to be one of the most difficult responsibilities in the world. But you don’t have to feel alone if you have taken on this task. The Alzheimer’s Association provides a 24/7 helpline that provides information and support to anyone in need.

They can help you understand memory loss, dementia and Alzheimer’s. They also have information on medications and treatment options. The hotline can also provide help understanding legal and financial decisions and provide you with the skills to provide quality care.

The service is offered in 140 different languages! Most importantly they can refer you to local community programs and support. One of the most helpful things for caregivers is a support group. I will provide information on specific groups with time and contact information in my blog on an ongoing basis.

Each case of Alzheimer’s is unique, but you are not alone. Reach out for the help when you need it!
