Caregiver Cards is a first of its kind product, created by Barbara Worthington (a former family caregiver to her grandparents who had Alzheimer's and dementia) used to help caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer's,dementia, or related memory/speech disorders communicate better together. Our goal is to improve communication irregardless of the stage of Alzheimer's and thus improve the quality of life for both the person with Alzheimer's disease and their caregiver.
One in eight older American’s (approximately 5.4 million individuals) has Alzheimer’s disease. There are nearly 15 million Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers providing 17 billion hours of unpaid care valued at $202 billion. One of the biggest reported frustrations while providing care involves difficulty communicating. Caregiver Card's goal is to help alleviate the stress and improve the quality of life for both the caregiver and individual with Alzheimer's. We aim to help by improving communication.
Caregiver Cards is a series of 155 illustrations used by caregivers for communication, prompts and cues with individuals who may have Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or related memory and/or speech disorders.
