ENG 1D: Babysitting Helen

Taking notes for "Babysitting Helen "

This Alzheimer Society Website is an excellent source for information about:

a. the disease

b. how to live with dementia

c. how to take care of someone who has it

We like the website because:

a. the information is written by experts, like doctors, in the field of Alzheimer's

b. the information is written for average people who want to understand the disease (meaning, it is not too complex as if it were aimed at doctors, or too juvenile, as if it were aimed at a child learning about what is happening to their grandparent)

c. the information is Canadian, which matters when learning about statistics, where to get help, or what treatments are available.

The "On Memory" website approaches Alzheimer's from the point of view of caregivers, such as family members.

We like the website because:

a. the information has been developed in consultation with the Alzheimer Society of Canada

b. the information is Canadian, which matters when learning about statistics, where to get help, or what treatments are available

These two articles from the Globe and Mail have interesting information for you on:

We like these articles because:
