    Dear Caregivers –

    I really appreciate this forum and have enjoyed reading you stories. I wanted to share with you a new resource for caregivers that might help.

    As we all know, coping with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease can be confusing, draining, and stressful for people with the condition and their loved ones.

    To help caregivers, Dr. Warachal Faison, Clinical Director of the Alzheimer’s Research and Clinical Programs at the Medical University of South Carolina, speaks with leading Alzheimer’s experts and researchers in a four-part online physician interview (audio) series about ways in which caregivers can better manage medical care for those with the disease, while at the same time tending to their own personal needs and lifestyles.

    The free series, sponsored by Forest Pharmaceuticals, is available through the following link: http://AlzheimersExperts.WebMD.com.

    Topics include:

    o How Do You Get Through
    o How To Talk To Your Doctor
    o Available Resources for Caregivers
    o Caring For The Caregiver

    Please feel free to share this series with friends, family, or loved ones.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

    Sincerely,

    Dave Schefcik
