Direct patients and their caregivers to this excellent online resource, and learn about a couple others.

This site from the National Institute on Aging is meant to help patients and caregivers “find current, comprehensive Alzheimer's disease (AD) information and resources.” Here, they will find extensive information on causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment, all provided in and easy-to-understand, question-and-answer format. Family members will also find tips, advice, information, and links to more resources, directed specifically for them as caregivers or in regards to obtaining professional caregiving. Site visitors will also find the latest news, information on and links to clinical trials, and the opportunity to sign up for the Connectionsnewsletter in the “Research Information” section.
