“As a nurse practitioner, a researcher specializing in gerontology and a family caregiver, I have shared in the experience of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer´s,” said Dr. Karen Kauffman, board certified Gerontological Nurse Practitioner and an Associate Professor at the University of Maryland School of Nursing. “In my line of work, I have found that caregivers are often stressed from the daily burdens of care and may have difficulties finding quality information. I believe The Alzheimer´s Caregiver is designed to meet the needs of the daily caregiver and empower family caregivers to keep their loved ones living at home much longer than would normally be possible.”

The Alzheimer´s Caregiver is dedicated to promoting, enhancing and providing a meaningful quality of life for persons with Alzheimer´s and other related dementias. It is funded through numerous competitive grants from the National Institute of Health in Washington DC. , a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and is the primary Federal agency for conducting and supporting medical and nursing research.
