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

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 Alzheimer’s, education is a critically important “weapon.”

Too often, people dismiss the importance of 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 quality of life as a caregiver and that of the person with the disease.
