“The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA) has unveiled an interactive “community of care” Web site that will help family caregivers meet other caregivers, learn about the brain disorder, and connect “live” with experts.

“Care Crossroads” addresses a major issue raised by caregivers of loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease: a feeling of isolation and stigma. It also provides an alternate type of support service for caregivers whose round-the-clock responsibilities prevent them from interacting in person at organized programs. Among the site’s unique features, AFA’s social workers are available to respond to questions and concerns — online, by e-mail, or via phone calls to the organization’s toll-free hotline at 866/232-8484. Family caregivers can also take advantage of an online multi-disease health and wellness support community and a “learn” section, where visitors can learn more about strategies for behavioral challenges, recreational activities, and safety issues appropriate for the specific stages of the disease
