THE BIG PICTURE
As I mentioned last week, dementia is a set of symptoms caused by damaged brain cells. The damage results from any one of more than 50 different medical conditions.

Whatever the cause of a person’s dementia, early diagnosis is important. This info graphic reminds you why:
A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words
If your inbox is anything like mine, it’s full of valuable information. I flag the most important and hope to get back to in my spare time.
This Beginner’s Guide to Alzheimer’s Care is full of that sort of information.
My goal is to make your life easier – not to add to your TO DO list (or your inbox).
So I’ll be summarizing each of the 5 LEEPS (Learn, Empathize, Embrace, Partner, Seek) with a “Big Picture.” I’ll publish a substantial blog post one week, then a summary info graphic the next.
- If you’ve had a chance to read the post, the info graphic will provide a quick review.
- If you haven’t had time to read the post, just glance at the highlights.
- If they seem important, click through to the post and read or bookmark it.
- If not, stop worrying about falling behind. Just continue the series with the following week’s post.
- We’ll keep the Beginner’s Guide to Alzheimer’s Care on our website, even after the series is complete. Consider it a resource to which you can return whenever needed.
Of course, the series has just begun! Be sure to subscribe so you won’t miss our next post: Step 2 – Empathize.
