Guidelines for relatives and carers of people with Alzheimer's and other dementias

Matia Fundazioa has produced six new guides that bring together general advice aimed at family members and carers who live with people suffering from Alzheimer's disease. The aim of these guides is to explain the disease in its different stages and to give advice that can be useful to family members/carers in their daily lives.

Ageing brings with it a progressive loss of functional and cognitive abilities. For this reason, it is important that in addition to promoting health through physical exercise, mental health is also promoted through cognitive stimulation and social interaction.

Alzheimer's disease calls for care and protection of the caregiver. In this way it is important that the carer knows the disease and is trained to know how to take the best possible care of the person with the disease and know how to take care of themselves.

Behavioural disorders are very frequent and generate a very important overload on the carer.  This booklet is intended to provide advice on how to deal with certain behaviours.

Many people think that this disease after the diagnosis leaves you useless for many things. This is not the case. In the mild stages of the disease it is true that you "lose" abilities but many others remain that need to be encouraged and promoted.

Brochure: Enfermedad de alzheimer en estadio leve-moderado

This booklet is an information support tool for family members and caregivers of patients with dementia and mild-moderate Alzheimer's disease.  A key aspect in this stage is to promote the capacities conserved and supervise those affected so that with help they have maximum autonomy.

Brochure: Enfermedad de alzheimer en estadio moderado-grave

This booklet is an information support tool for family members and caregivers of patients with dementia and moderate-severe Alzheimer's disease. The priorities and needs at this stage are likely to be very different from the milder stage. Knowing how to identify these needs helps with day-to-day care and planning.
