Alzheimer’s Association offers online tools to empower people to live well with dementia – Crane Library Web Pick of the Week

AlzheimersAssocLiving a quality life in the early stage of dementia is an individual choice. With input from people living with the disease, the Alzheimer’s Association has launched a series of online tools to help individuals cope with and live a better life with dementia.

The resources are meant to address five key components of early-stage dementia:

  • Life After Diagnosis – Watch video clips from individuals with dementia who reflect on their emotions after receiving a diagnosis and explain how they have come to accept it
  • You Are More Than Your Diagnosis – Explore unique aspects of your identity and create a personalized word cloud
  • Live Healthy – Discover how you can lead a healthy and balanced life with dementia
  • Maximize Your Independence – Determine your strengths and learn strategies for living an independent life, such as by identifying how much you want other people to help you
  • Live In The Moment – View videos from individuals who share how their diagnosis changed their outlook on life
