This workshop is ongoing and offered throughout Los Angeles County:

Creating a partnership with your doctor when the diagnosis is Alzheimer's disease or a related illness.
Free Caregiver's Workshop offered by the Alzheimer's Association  in partnership with the Department of Health Services.

If you are providing care for someone with Alzheimer's disease or a related illness, you know that there are many challenges to face.  Getting the best health care for your loved one can be one of the most frustrating of these challenges.  There are so many questions to ask, so many things to learn.  It's easy to get overwhelmed.
One of the best ways to get good, accurate information is to ask your doctor.  However, a recent Alzheimer's Association nationwide survey found that the caregivers of family members with Alzheimer's disease are not receiving all the information they want from primary care doctors, even though doctors believe that they are meeting caregivers' needs.
"A Caregiver's Workshop" helps caregivers understand what good health care is and how to develop a partnership with their loved one's doctor to get the best care possible. 
This workshop is designed for non-professionals who are providing care for someone with Alzheimer's disease or a related illness.
You will receive:
* A Working With Your Doctor brochure with helpful information on diagnosis, examples of questions to ask the doctor, contact information for community resources, and more.
* Easy to use worksheets that will help you keep track of your loved one's behaviors, medications, and your concerns and questions between doctor visits.
* Confidence building strategies on how you can work with the doctor to build a partnership that will help your loved one receive the best possible health care.
To register or get information about a free workshop near you, contact Stacey Skala at (323) 938-3379 x 258.
