Asking a question on behalf of a caregiver without internet or email access. Her friend / neighbor has been diagnosed with dementia. Based on the description it sounds like early stage and may still have capacity to make decisions. The care recipient originally, signed a POA that gave control of her finances to her sister. Based on the description of the friend, the sister has not done a good job providing support and access to funds. The client is interested in making a change to her POA. What is the process and requirements to make a change to a POA? Thanks!

Just following up on the discussion from the meeting. Here is the link from the Alz Association. https://www.medicalert.org/alzheimers-dementia For those that already have the bracelets, a couple questions: -How did your loved one react to wearing the bracelet? -If they resisted, how did you get them to agree? -Benefits of the medical alert bracelet vs alternative?

This is the best Apple Watch alternative I have seen. Looks like a lot of great features and reasonably priced. You can watch the video below. Looks like they are having a deal right now to coincide with Amazon Prime day for $100 + $8.99/ month. If your loved one won't wear the apple watch you may look into this product. https://www.jiobit.com/product-select-99?utm_expid=.2A4rvRhcQ1KoJieCnY6jEg.1&utm_referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.jiobit.com%2Fproduct-select-99

Hi everyone, I created a template based on Doris' design on Canva. With the link below you should be able to edit and order additional cards. I have ordered several items from Canva and they have always turned out great.

I stumbled upon this article today. Thought some of you may find it interesting. I know many of you found the Alzheimer's diagnosis processes very frustrating. https://www.studyfinds.org/eye-scan-may-detect-alzheimers-disease-earlier/ Also, How was last weeks session with Ginny?

I wanted to get feedback from the group. It seems many are struggling with ideas on activities to do with their loved one and that others like a caregiver or friend can do. I have brainstormed individually with some of the group but I wanted to keep a running thread where the group can share ideas with each other. Looking forward to hearing from the group.
