Help a person with Alzheimer’s prepare for doctor visits

Caregivers play an important role in helping people with mid-to-late stage Alzheimer’s communicate with their doctors.

Make the most out of your time with the doctor with these tips:
• Make a list of what you and the person with Alzheimer’s want to discuss.
• Prioritize your concerns so you talk about the most important issues first.
• Plan to update the doctor on any changes in health, behavior, or medication side effects.
• Take lists of all medications for the doctor to review. This includes prescription drugs, over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal remedies or supplements.
