United States' Sites
Washington University's ALZHEIMER Page
A wonderful resource which includes archived material that can be searched by topic or author from the email contributions of numerous people to the Alzheimer List-server, as well as the Alzheimer List itself, a support group connected by email which comprises caregivers, health professionals, and a few patients, and where questions are posed and answered, and experience shared.
Virtual Carer Support Chat
A chat location supported by CANDID (UK-based) and providing general information, support, and stress relief from experienced caregivers and a few health professionals. Available at any time, but some attempt at structured chat is made once weekly (Monday evening (US time), Tuesday lunchtime (Australian time)) involving a specific topic announced via the Alzheimer List.
Bubblehead's Site and Chat Room
A privately-hosted chat room of similar organization to CANDID, and structured once weekly for the same specific topics as CANDID but a day later (Tuesday evening (US time), Wednesday lunchtime (Australian time)). Very experienced and sensible caregiver as host.
