On the Full Circle of Care Caregiver Website, we provide you with many links to information outside our website. This is done, in part, to provide you with access to the most updated information. For example, who better to provide information on Alzheimer's disease and related dementias than the Alzheimer's Association?
However, in doing this, we must point out a caveat.
It is important to know the source of the online information you review. Government websites now provide a wealth of information on a variety of topics. Many non-profit aging agencies such as Councils or Departments on Aging now have websites. They would be good places to start.
Be wary of sites that want you to pay money for information that is available for free. Be wary of sites that insist that you "sign up" or "become a member" to access information. You may find sites that you want to join, but, give them a good examination before you do. Most information that a family caregiver is likely to use is available on government or non-profit aging agency websites. If in doubt, contact your local Caregiver Specialist and ask for their assistance in finding the information you need. Don't risk your privacy and computer safety because you don't want to ask for help.
