Alzheimer's caregivers now have a new friend to support them through their caregiving journey. Alzheimer's disease progresses through stages, or levels, as the forgetting eventually impacts all of the body's functions. The changes in the senior's personality can be especially stressful for caregivers. This is why having a "digital" buddy helps you to stay on the best path for each day of the Alzheimer's caregiver journey.
Caregiver Buddy App allows caregivers to access:
24/7 Alzheimer's Helpline
Daily Care Tips for Tasks Related to Hygiene and Meal Times
Fun Activity Ideas to Stimulate Body and Mind
Behavior Coping Tips for Overwhelming Behaviors of Aggression and Hallucination
Refresher about Alzheimer's Disease
The Caregiver Buddy App was developed by the Alzheimer's Association, Greater Illinois Chapter.
Alzheimer's caregivers can also take notes on the App to maintain daily care notes and quickly access care information.
Caregivers will be presented with the App's capabilities upon starting it and prompted to view the search function and notes section and given instructions on how to navigate the Caregiver Buddy.
Caregivers will then choose a topic, such as Wellbeing or Communication and then be provided with more information on the topic. This App can be a nice accompaniment to the Caregiver Basic Training which explains the different types of memory loss, including Alzheimer's disease.
Senior caregivers please give us your feedback on the Caregiver Buddy App.
