Alzheimer's Disease Caregivers-Education Module


The following education modules are created specifically for men and women. The modules are based on the top problems that male and female caregivers talked about in caregiver studies. Although most caregivers of persons with Alzheimer’s disease are women, male caregivers are equally at risk for strain during long term caregiving. Men and women are affected by and approach caregiving problems in different ways. These male and female modules may help men and women caregivers better manage some of these problems.
