Program: 

Safety Center

Alzheimer's causes a number of changes in the brain and body that may affect safety. Depending on the stage of the disease, these can include changes in judgment, abstract thinking, sense of time/place and behavior.

As the disease progresses, the person's abilities will change. So situations that are not of concern today may become potential safety issues in the future.

Lotsa Helping Hands

Friends, family members and neighbors may offer to lend a hand with caregiving for a person with dementia – now, with Lotsa Helping Hands, it’s easy to keep track of care volunteers.

Lotsa Helping Hands is a free private group calendar that helps caregivers, friends, family members and other volunteers coordinate the dates and times when they will help with caregiving duties, such as preparing meals, providing rides or running errands.
