Resources for Dealing with Dementia

Many people are affected by dementia at end of life. Dementia is not a specific disease but is rather a general term for the impaired ability to remember, think, or make decisions that interferes with doing everyday activities. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia. Because dementia is a general term, its symptoms can vary widely from person to person. It can be a very isolating and confusing issue for those living with the disease as well as their caregivers, which are often family.
We’ve gathered a few resources to help if you or someone you love, are dealing with dementia.
