Alzheimer’s Caregivers: More Resources for You

AARP (http://www.aarp.org/) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan membership organization for people age 50 and over. It’s dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for all as they age. It leads positive social change and delivers value to members through information, advocacy and service.

The organization’s website contains a vast amount of information for caregivers. Most of this is located in the CaregiverResourceCenter- http://www.aarp.org/relationships/caregiving/. It includes tools, work sheets and tips on how to plan, prepare and succeed as a caregiver. In addition it has posts of important items in the news, active online discussion groups, columns by various experts, and a “Take Care” blog, just to mention a few of the Center’s features. 

There are also literally hundreds of short, helpful articles in the following main categories:  Getting Started, Providing Care, Housing Options, Legal and Financial Issues, and End-of-Life Care. 

Although the Center doesn’t focus exclusively on caring for Alzheimer’s patients, it does have a wealth of information that can be of value to Alzheimer’s caregivers.  I urge you to check it out.
