2. How to Calm Alzheimer’s Agitation
Agitation, a nervous kind of restlessness, afflicts many Alzheimer’s patients – this means their caregivers and family members absorb as well as deal with the fall out. A new study claims Celexa can help. I also present some non-drug alternatives.

An emerging field of research in Alzheimer’s is centered on the personal reporting of the patient regarding his own cognitive impairment known as “subjective cognitive decline.”

9. How to Identify Alzheimer's Patient Abuse
So how can you tell whether it is a fall, or an accidental bruise and not an injury inflicted by a caregiver – when you are not around to monitor your loved one?
10. Tips for Dealing with Alzheimer's
I have received quite a few emails from overwhelmed caregivers and their families. Many want to know about a “miracle” drug combination, a safe sedative or how to avoid the fallout of irritability.
