Although they focus on Alzheimer's Disease, anyone dealing with dementia issues can participate.) In terms of services, the Alzheimer's Association has a 24 hour helpline, and the ability to help you find appropriate housing for your loved one. From this website, you can find a local chapter of the Alzheimer's Association where there will likely be family support groups offered. As well, you can join their message boards and chat rooms for connecting with others online.
This interactive tool can help you determine the level of support your loved one needs to live safely at home based on the degree of his or her memory loss.
If you worry that the person you care for might wander away and get lost, consider a Safe Return ID bracelet. This will help others to recognize your loved one is lost and contact you so he or she can safely be returned home. It also has the ability to note medical conditions so emergency medical personnel can be aware of important health issues.
