How to Care for Someone with Memory Loss After a Hospitalization

As the disease progresses, a person with Alzheimer’s or another dementia becomes more dependent on others to manage care at home. Family members or friends play a significant role in helping provide care and minimizing unnecessary hospitalizations and readmissions.

The Care Transitions Notebook: Caring for Someone with Memory Loss or Alzheimer’s After a Hospitalization helps caregivers better understand Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and how to care for someone after a hospitalization. The Notebook focuses on mid-stage Alzheimer’s disease, but may still be useful to people caring for someone in another stage of the disease.
