Alzheimer's Helpline: Alzheimer's Support

Alzheimer's disease is a brain disease that progressively damages memory and cognitive abilities. Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's can be very challenging, and in some cases, can even cause the caregiver to develop emotional distress and mental health issues. Alzheimer's causes family members or friends struggling to help with Alzheimer's feel like they fell into a bottomless pit.

ExtendaTouch is open for all people and family caregivers that are dealing with the constant challenges Alzheimer's brings, and it is entirely free for everyone. The ExtendaTouch service provides online tools for members to share information and support with actual people who face the same everyday experiences and challenges.

I took care of my father for 4.5 years after my mother passed away. He steadily got worse but my goal was to keep him in his home as long as possible. I moved in with him and incorporated other help to try to keep him at home.
