Understanding Alzheimer's and Alzheimer's and Safety is a two-program DVD packed with 50 minutes of practical advice for caregivers and people with dementia. This DVD was developed under the guidance of Alzheimer's Association experts and features tips from caregivers and people with dementia.

One DVD gives you two educational programs:

"Understanding Alzheimer's: An Introductory Guide" provides guidelines on diagnosis and treatment, as well as tips for everyday life with dementia. Topics covered in detail are: Getting a Diagnosis, What to Expect and How to Cope.

"Alzheimer's and Safety: A Guide to Planning and Preparation" outlines safety issues and helps with planning and preparation. This guide details what changes may be presented due to dementia, how to make your home safe, how to travel safely, medications and staying safe, wandering and driving.

Cost of the DVD is $24.95 and can be purchased by at the Alzheimer's Association Website here!

I know that I benefited by watching many of these types of videos when I first started working in this field.  Has anyone else had any experiences, positive or negative with these types of films?
