Online resources from AARP and the American Society on Aging are an excellent place to start searching for general information about elderly care. If you are a caregiver and need to speak and connect with other caregivers dealing with similar circumstances, we would encourage you to consider joining one of the virtual support groups sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association. These support groups are facilitated by trained individuals and provide an outlet for caregivers to share and support one another in a controlled and judgment-free environment.
