Port St. Lucie, FL, January 30, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Elizabeth (Betsy) Howe, M.B.A., whose husband has Alzheimer’s Disease, is writing a series of articles on caregiving for the Alzheimer’s Association. She has recently written a resounding recommendation for the website – www.thealzheimerspouse.com , the only website on the Internet that deals with the unique issues and challenges faced by spouses of Alzheimer patients.
Excerpt from Betsy’s article:
“As more and younger people develop Alzheimer's and other dementias, more and more of us are becoming caregivers for spouses. An excellent resource for spouses is a site begun by and for the spouse of a person with young onset Alzheimer's. The website is www.thealzheimerspouse.com. There are a plethora of resources available through this site, and the topics applicable for any dementia:
· A daily blog by Joan Gershman, the site's founder
· A message board where no question or discussion topic is off
· Information on available products, books and other resources of help to the caregiver or for the person with the condition · Links to articles, videos, and radio broadcasts of interest on the topics of Alzheimer's and dementia in general
· Caregiver Tips, Financial Information, Humor (gotta laugh or you'll cry), Memory Techniques · And Soooo much more.
If you don't have your own computer, this site is so valuable it's worth making a trip to the library or a friend's house to use a computer. This site is so good it's worth taking a class to learn how to use a computer so you can benefit from all this site has to offer.”
