How to care for people with dementia?

Caring for people with dementia has become more and more common.

Elderly caregiving may consist of formal care and informal care:

  • Formal care involves the services of community and medical partners
  • Informal care involves the support of family, friends, and local communities, but more often from spouses, adult children and other relatives.

You can also go to The Alzheimer’s Association (800-272-3900), they will refer you to your local chapter for information, resources, and their hands-on caregiver training workshops.

To learn more you should go to a medical professional.
