The goal of the Alzheimer's Reading Room is to Educate, Empower, and sometimes Entertain Alzheimer's caregivers, their families, and the entire Alzheimer's community.

When Alzheimer's Strikes

At its core the Alzheimer's Reading Room is about helping members of the Alzheimer's and Dementia Community understand, cope, and communicate with persons living with Alzheimer's and Dementia.

The Alzheimer's Reading Room is currently the number one source of information for Alzheimer's, dementia, memory loss, and related health and life news on the Internet.

The Alzheimer's Reading Room Knowledge Base search box  is available on every page on this website.

It looks like this and sits on the right hand side of every page. Try it here.

Our Intelligent Knowledge Base

We have more than 4,800 articles ranging across a long list of useful topics including Alzheimer's disease and dementia, Alzheimer's caregiving, Alzheimer's help and information, advice, insight, health, memory loss, and problem solving.
Enter keyword(s) below. For example, Bath


We have more than 100 experts that have contributed articles to our Knowledge Base. This includes many of the world's best authors, researchers, geriatric care mangers, nurse PhDs, long distance and stay at home caregivers, and real hands-on experts.

We have one of the best organized, easy to use, intellectual capital bases on Alzheimer's and dementia in the world.

Our Knowledge Base is easy to use. All you need to do is enter a single keyword. Or, a group of keywords to find help, advice, and information

For example, are you have trouble convincing your love one to take a bath?

Enter the word - bath. Or, shower into the search box on the right hand side of the page.

When you enter the word bath into the Knowledge Base search box you will receive a list of 100 articles. These articles are ranked by importance and readership.

Since the search engine is intelligent it will also present articles on issues that surround the problem you are trying to solve. 
For example, when you search the word - bath - you will also find articles on topics like challenging behavior; or, how to re channel challenging behavior.

You might also find articles on issues you never thought about like this title -

Don't Want to Lie to a Person Living with Dementia, Why Not Embrace Reality Instead

The ARR Knowledge Base will help you find the information and help you need; and also, important information on related issues that could be of great help to you.

Since most of our content is original - created specifically for readers of the ARR - you will likely find information, advice, insight, and help that is unique.

A simple knowledge base search with a single word might lead to information that can change your life, and the way you are currently doing things.

This change often leads to a happier more effective caregiving effort. And often to,

a higher quality of life for you and your loved one.

You can search by key word, or by using a string of keywords.
