Alzheimer's resources

This morning on WMBI-FM I spoke about Alzheimer's disease. Judging by the number of calls and follow up e-mails I received, this is a topic that affects many people. Below are more resources that I have found helpful:

Information from the National Institutes of Health (main site here)
Alzheimer's Disease Fact Sheet
Alzheimer's Disease Medications

Watch HBO's new documentary The Alzheimer's Project free online!

Caregiver resources from the Alzheimer's Association

For Illinois residents, a place to print advance care planning documents like Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care. Everyone should have one of these. All you need to do is choose the person who you would trust to make health care decisions in the event that you cannot express your wishes. Then put it in writing, and talk with your power of attorney about your wishes.
