We started Best Alzheimer's Products (now Inc.) in 2007 When we began to take care of our friend, Bernice, who began showing symptoms of dementia about ten years earlier, we found it difficult to find information and products to help us provide that care. So we began to put what we did painstakingly did learn onto a website to help others who found themselves in a similar circumstance. Later we added a store to share the things that worked for us while caring for Bernice. Our mission has always been to improve the quality of life for anyone affected by dementia.
The more you know about caring for your loved one, the better job you will do, and the better will be his or her quality of life, as well as your own. As you explore Best Alzheimer's Products you will find ideas and suggestions for activities and entertainment that reduce agitation, aid sleep, and often allow for a reduction in medication. Read about the latest clinical research to help you make informed decisions concerning the care of your loved one. Learn how simple aids for daily living can prolong independence; how diet and exercise could improve and extend cognitive functioning; how we might even prevent or at least forestall Alzheimer's disease. And learn more about the range of diseases and conditions that together comprise dementia.

When we became caregivers for Bernice, it didn't take long to realize she was much happier and less agitated when she was busy. It took us a lot longer to figure out what sorts of activities she enjoyed and was able to do. Research confirmed that activity and alternative therapies were vital components to any caregiving plan. This website and our store are here to help make your caregiving experience more enjoyable and to enhance the life of the person or the people in your care.

Formerly known as alz-caregiver.com, our blog brings you the latest news and advice in the world of Alzheimer's research. More importantly, it is a forum for you, the caregiver, to share with others your experiences and to talk about caring tips and methods that work well for you. It is a place to learn from others what works for them.
