How Families CopeStreaming Video - 2005
In this program from The Doctor Is In, families who are caregivers provide practical information on how to manage the in-home care of a loved one who has Alzheimer's. Important decisions, such as whether to use outside day care or in-home health aides, are discussed. Several hints on how younger family members can participate in the caregiving include reading or telling stories to the patient. Two Alzheimer's specialists describe the stages of the disease, and discuss how caregivers can modify its effects on both the patient and the family.
