The good news in all of this dementia mess? More and more individuals and organizations are working toward preventative treatments, cures, tools, and support to help individuals with dementia (with much focus on Alzheimer’s disease) and those who care for them.
This week, a colleague of mine turned me on to BrightFocus Foundation, an organization that has created a toolkit for those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease (as well as Macular Degeneration and Glaucoma). They are also working to create a community around the disease.
Just have 15 minutes to poke around? I would explore the toolkit (above) and the fact sheets that may help you understand the diagnosis further. Bookmark this site and use it when you have time to explore or have questions.
