Alzheimers Resources

There are many Alzheimers resources available on the internet. I have reviewed quite a few of them. I will provide the link to the ones that I believe will be the most helpful to you. There are a couple of videos that are available for you to watch online. I really recommend you watch the videos and learn as much as you can about Alzheimer's Disease, especially if you have a friend or family member who has been diagnosed with this disease.

The Brain Tour is a good Alzheimer's Disease resource. This is an interactive tour which explains the effect of the disease on the brain.
