The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America’s (AFA) is pleased to join HealthCentral’s panel of experts as part of our commitment toprovide optimal care to individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, and their families.
Beginning in June 2007, look for AFA’s expert social services team to monitor SharePosts and the Forum, providing guidance to those who raise issues pertaining to Alzheimer’s disease, related illnesses and caregiving.
“Hand holding” is very much a part of AFA’s mission. Given the 24/7 responsibilities of caregiving, our licensed social workers recognize that no question is too small…every challenge has potential solutions… and education, skills and a compassionate ear can make all the difference in coping with this disease.
In addition to our collaboration with The HealthCentral Network, AFA’s social services team is available to provide counseling and referrals to localand national resources via AFA’s toll-free hot line, 866-AFA-8484, or viaemail, firstname.lastname@example.org.
