November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month and National Caregivers Month.
If you are a caregiver for an Alzheimer’s patient (or know one you’d like to help), I’d like to recommend a helpful book. The author Nancy Nicholson, in addition to being my sister, is a social work consultant with experience working with Alzheimer’s patients as well as personal experience as a caregiver for our father. Help! What Do I Do Now?: Caring for Your Loved One with Alzheimer’s is short and easy-to-read but packed with useful tips.
The video below shows the willing sacrifice of an Alzheimer’s caregiver, representative of millions of caregivers around the world.
