5 things to do after a diagnosis

Though titled “What to do after an Alzheimer’s diagnosis,” I think most of the article applies to any diagnosis.  This article is directed as caregivers but some of it applies to those with a diagnosis.

* Organize Documents and Resources
* Collect Memories
* Continue to Do Enjoyable Things
* Plan Care Options
* Prepare for Anticipatory Grief
