We know how hard it is when you get the news that your older loved one has a clinical diagnosis (we have gone through it with our family members). All of the medical terminology can be extremely intimidating and it's hard deciphering what is trustworthy.  

Below we have listed some of out favorite references that you can trust! These links have evidence based practices, latest medical advancements, and are written for people to actually understand (compared to a medical chart!). We want to provide you with accurate information regarding signs, symptoms, and what to expect in the future.
