Website launches new stage-specific Alzheimer's guide
The website Caring.com has launched its first Alzheimer's resource for family caregivers, which is titled "Steps and Stages." This resource includes an interactive guide and a customized e-mail newsletter that offers specific, stage-appropriate advice.
People who are impacted by Alzheimer's disease experience early-, middle- and late-stage symptoms. With each stage, not only does the person with the disease deal with a specific set of symptoms, but also the caregivers involved with that person. In order to best assist people experiencing Alzheimer's, caregivers should be educated about what to expect at each stage, according to Andy Cohen.
The New York Theological Seminary is an institution dedicated to multiculturalism, diversity, social justice and religious tolerance. The mission of the seminary is to prepare men and women, from every background, for careers in ministry.
