Alzheimer's Awareness

After a diagnosis, connecting to individual and family counselling resources is just as important as working with a clinician to become familiar with the disease. Make sure that patients are given information and access to services such as adult day programs, support groups and counselling to provide the most support possible. At-home care such as Meals on Wheels and housekeeping are great ways to delay the urgency for a nursing home. Make sure to also remind your patient about writing an updated will and assigning a Power of Attorney before the disease progresses.

Remind your patients that they are not alone on this journey. Beyond the regular informative brochures and websites, here are some movies that feature Alzheimer's and dementia.
