Case management in Alzheimer's disease

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Patients with a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease and their families need the assistance of a case manager to deal with the issues of long-term care. The case manager assists with education, planning, linking to formal and informal resources, and addressing emotional needs in the family unit. This article discusses specific suggestions to address problems in the three stages of Alzheimer's disease from the time of medical diagnosis to the end of life.
