At The Patient Institute, our mission is to empower patients and caregivers to more effectively navigate the healthcare system. We accomplish this through:
- educating people to become better informed and engaged patients;
- educating and empowering all caregivers to become more effective and compassionate;
- research, development, and advocacy of practical healthcare initiatives; and
- gathering and providing resources that support and assist patients and caregivers.
The title of this manual, Welcome Stranger, is purposeful. An Alzheimer’s patient becomes a stranger in that their behavior, likes, dislikes, and actions change from what we have previously known and lived with in prior years.
This guide is not intended to be a primer to understanding Alzheimer’s disease but rather to provide a few meaningful ways to make the job of care giving less onerous and life more pleasant for both parties.
