Caregivers Information

Referred to as the "second victim" of Alzheimer's disease, a caregiver's life is significantly impacted when a relative is diagnosed with a cognitive impairment like Alzheimer's disease. Because of this, Insight Memory Care Center also strives to provide resources for caregivers. Below you can find information about our Caregiving at a Glance publication, online resources for caregivers, and services for the aging, and links to our educational programs for caregivers.

 

Caregiving at a Glance

Caregiving at a Glance is IMCC's fingertip guide for families caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's. Two distinct versions are available - free of charge for family members (limited to one copy per household) and at a modest fee for professionals caring for people with an Alzheimer's-type illness. Techniques and strategies to empower caregivers address topics such as: troublesome behaviors, communication, eating, bathing and more. To order a copy, please contact us by email or call us at 703-204-4664.
