It’s now been five months since we had to stop meetings due to the COVID-19 closing of all meeting rooms here in SaddleBrooke. We have all been trying to protect ourselves from contracting the virus. Doing this has isolated many of us caring for those with Alzheimers, MS, Dementia, Stroke, ALS, Parkinson’s, PDP, and many more neurological diseases from reaching out for help with solving the issues coming every day with the caring of our loved ones.
Wanted to put out to our community some resources that can help answer questions, educate, ease the pressures mounting within the home. Also feel free to call the numbers given at the end of the article for additional sources, books, and articles that we have available for your use.
