You have the Power to Educate Yourself About Dementia and Alzheimer's

Whether you are caring for someone who has the disease; have a friend or family member about whom you’re concerned; or if you – yourself – have been recently diagnosed, in the fight against dementia and Alzheimer’s, education is a critically important “weapon.” Too often, people dismiss the importance of dementia and Alzheimer’s education: “It’s not going to change the diagnosis … I’m better off not knowing what’s ahead … I can handle it. How hard can caregiving be …” Equipping yourself with information about dementia will dramatically improve your support and assistance as a caregiver, significant others, and the quality of life of the person with the disease.
