A new web tool, called “Care Finder,” has been developed by the Alzheimer’s Association to help people with Alzheimer’s Disease find the right care options for themselves or a loved one. The tool has a special feature that allows individuals to enter personalized information, special needs, abilities and preferences, and receive a customized summary report with care recommendations and specific questions to ask potential care providers. The website also provides information on a variety of issues, including planning ahead, coordinating care, and support and resources. The tool was funded in part through the Administration on Aging’s cooperative agreement with the Alzheimer’s Association National Contact Center. To access the tool, go here.
