Dementia is difficult to cope with. If someone you love is experiencing confusion or memory loss, you may feel isolated, frightened or exhausted. Dementia disorders like Alzheimer's Disease, Lewy Body Dementia, Vascular Dementia, and FrontoTemporal Dementia take you into an altered universe. Behavior is difficult to comprehend, patience is stretched to its limits, and stress is a regular house guest. It can be heart-wrenching for all involved.
Please watch these brief videosfor some excellent introductory information about Alzheimer's disease, and caregiving tips.
Since 2002 I have facilitated a caregiver support group for families dealing with Alzheimer's and dementia. My mother and my mother-in-law had dementia disorders. Through these experiences I have learned that connecting with others on the same journey is a powerful first step toward finding peace in the midst of these conditions.
This site is intended to help create that connection, linking families with potential sources of support. I hope you will see that you are not alone, that help is available, that people are ready to ease your burden -- sometimes at no cost to you.
