Do You Have Alzheimer’s?

The Alzheimer’s Association recently launched a new online resource, entitled “I Have Alzheimer’s Disease,” which provides information and tools to help those with early-stage Alzheimer’s or another dementia to cope with the changes ahead, and resources for caregivers, family members, or friends of those with Alzheimer’s.

A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease is life changing. The “I Have Alzheimer’s Disease” resource offers real-life accounts from those in the early stages of Alzheimer’s and tips on how to plan, prepare, and seek support.  The site also provides a better understanding of Alzheimer’s and tips on how you or your loved one can live their life with Alzheimer’s to the fullest.

According to Terry Berry, who is a member of the Alzheimer’s Association National Early-Stage Advisory Group, “This site should be the first “Go To” after diagnosis. It’s comforting to hear directly from individuals who are also living with the disease — we all experience the disease differently, but we can gain so much from each other’s perspectives.”

For more details visit the site and view this video featuring those who are living with Alzheimer’s disease. In addition, to find out more about what it is like to live with Alzheimer’s or other dementias, please read our recent article, “What Dementia is Really Like — The Virtual Tour.”
