Guidance Manual for Caregivers
Alzheimer's Disease International
The John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation and the TIMA Charitable Foundation jointly sponsored the translation into Greek and subsequent publication of the 'Help for Caregivers', a guide for people caring for patients with dementia. The guide was created by Alzheimer's Disease International in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO) to provide caregivers with useful information and advice on how to cope with dementia and how to take better care of themselves and those afflicted with the disease. The guide is available, free of charge, nationwide, through the Greek Association of Alzheimer’s Disease (Alzheimer Hellas) and other associated organizations.
- 10,000 guides were printed and distributed with the support of the two Foundations.
Alzheimer's Disease International (ADI) was founded in 1984 to provide hope and support to people whose lives are affected by dementia. Headquartered in London, the organization works closely with WHO and national dementia institutions to raise awareness on dementia and to improve the quality of care, support and information for people with dementia and their carers.
