Press Info

Thanks for your interest in Best Alzheimer’s Products. We are a family owned and operated company that started when we were caregivers to Bernice, a family friend with Alzheimer’s. Realizing how much happier she was when she had activities that she was capable of doing, we set out to find more things to improve her quality of life and found it very difficult. We started Best Alzheimer’s Products to help other caregivers in similar situations. See what our customers are saying about us!

Company Background

Life can take many unexpected twists and turns. Just ask Holly and John Schmid, former elementary school teachers, married for nearly 40 years and creators of Best Alzheimer’s Products (www.best-alzheimers-products.com) a thriving online website-destination dedicated to helping those with memory loss.

Neither Holly nor John have any family history of Alzheimer’s disease, but a chance meeting decades ago eventually took them on a twenty-year caregiving journey that forever changed their lives.

Sometime around 2007, John began sharing his new-found knowledge online. From scratch, he built a website and propagated it with information about Alzheimer’s and caregiving. He found many other Alzheimer’s care-givers who also wanted to connect, share their experiences and learn how they could improve the lives of their loved ones.
