Aging & Alzheimer's
If you or someone you know is caring for aging parents or has become a dementia caregiver, there will come a time when help is needed.  What is dementia, what type of dementia am I dealing with, what are the dementia signs I should be looking for are only a few of the questions that come up when you’re dealing with aging parents.  

Most state and local governments have some specific aging services in place in an effort to provide assistance and support for dementia in the elderly and their caregivers and are generally found under a title of Department of Disability and Aging.  Routinely they have programs for people with dementia, but also provide aging research support as well as dementia training courses and education for caregivers and the general public.  The information and health services to help with the effects of aging in the elderly and those who care for them is an increasingly valuable asset and should be considered a high priority within any aging and disability resource center.

However, during the initial dementia stages when caregivers are beginning to see the early signs and behaviors, they need information that will help them with understanding dementia and what the future will bring.  Much of the information can be obtained through dementia and Alzheimer’s related guides, training, studies, articles, and facts.  The internet and some of the on-line sites and resources are often good sources for anyone working or coping with people who have dementia.  

Program Development Associates is a leading source of aging and dementia information as well as Alzheimer’s information and awareness, through programs, video and products.  Our website, DisabilityTraining.com, has dozens of resources providing aging, dementia and Alzheimer’s related information covering areas of communication, behaviors, activities, health and care created specifically to educate and help those who care for the aging and what may come with it.
