Alzheimer's SOS

When caregivers need answers, they don't have time to page through a 300-page book or type a question into a search bar and figure out which sites can be trusted. They need dependable information at their fingertips.

Alzheimer's SOS gives a safe harbor of expert advice in small doses. Geriatrician Pamela Tronetti, DO and Dementia Care Specialist Janet Rooks, MS have decades of geriatric care experience.

Now they offer practical, reliable, up-to-date answers for caregiver quandaries through their videos and newspaper columns. With love and laughter, they let caregivers know that they can do this and that they are not alone.
