Coping With Daily Life and Alzheimer's Disease

What Help Is Available for People With Alzheimer’s Disease?

There are many types of help available for people with Alzheimer's disease and for their caregivers. Among them are:

  • Support groups. Support groups are a very useful sharing experience. They provide an environment where you can learn new ways of dealing with your illness. You may want to share approaches you have discovered with others. You will also gain strength in knowing that you are not facing hardships alone.
  • Individual counseling. Sometimes, people have problems that are better addressed in a one-on-one atmosphere. By participating in individual counseling, you may more effectively express sensitive or private feelings you have about your illness and its effect on your life and relationships.
