Levine, executive vice president and director of programs at CaringKind, the Heart of Alzheimer’s Caregiving (formerly known as the Alzheimer’s Association-NYC Chapter), as our expert panelist for our most recent #ElderCareChat. Mr. Levine engaged participants in a thought-provoking Twitter conversation on why it is so vital that family members have support when caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease.

The hour-long #ElderCareChat covered such topics as how caring for a person with Alzheimer’s is different from other types of caregiving, the stresses that family caregivers may face, and where they can turn for support.

#ElderCareChat is presented by OurParents.com and sister sites SeniorAdvisor.com and VeteranAid.org as a forum to share resources, experiences, and expertise in eldercare. #ElderCareChat meets each month. Stay tuned to @OurParents Twitter handle for further details.
