Port St. Lucie, FL, December 10, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The Alzheimer Spouse website – www.thealzheimerspouse.com - was launched in 2007 by Joan Gershman, an Alzheimer spouse herself, to address the unique issues faced by spouses of Alzheimer patients. The emotional issues involved in caring for a spouse with Alzheimer’s Disease are completely different than caring for a parent or grandparent. Recognizing this difference in struggling to adjust to the changes Alzheimer’s Disease brought to her 35 year marriage, Joan started the website to bring support and information to other spouses trying to cope with their conflicting emotions.
Since the inception of www.thealzheimerspouse.com, it has become the #1 site (Google) on the Internet for support, information, education, and resources for spouses of Alzheimer patients. The heart of the website are the brutally honest, deeply personal blogs written by Joan detailing her struggle to adjust and accept her husband’s descent into the Alzheimer fog. Members of the website write on the Message Boards of how Joan’s blogs give a voice to their own feelings and battles related to coping with the disease.
Now the Healthcare Administration Blog has named The Alzheimer Spouse as #20 in the top 50 Alzheimer Related Blogs. Log onto www.thealzheimerspouse.com and become acquainted with the blogs that have earned this honor, as well as all of its informative features.
