HelpGuide.org – Alzheimer’s Resources

“Suspecting you or a loved one may be exhibiting signs of Alzheimer’s can be a stressful and emotional experience. Of course, just because you forget things, it doesn’t necessarily mean you have Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. Even when your worst fears are realized, the earlier you’re diagnosed and seek help, the better your chances of delaying the onset of more debilitating symptoms, prolonging your independence, and maximizing your quality of life.”
