With EOAD (Early-Onset Alzheimer Disease) Rick Phelps’ Video Series helps others cope
Instead of fading away with this disease, Rick has done something very different. Rick has decided to make videos and record the affects of this disease on himself and, perhaps, bring awareness and education about Alzheimer’s and EOAD to other people.
Rick is not a physician nor does he recommend any particular treatment for others. He is a person with Early On-Set Alzheimer’s who is documenting his own progress to bring awareness to others.
Rick has started two Facebook groups, one for Alzheimer’s patients and caregivers called ” Memory people™” and another for teenagers who have a family member or loved one with Alzheimer’s called “Memory people for teens™.” He also has a website for Alzheimer’s patients and Caregivers, Living with Alzheimer’s. Rick believes that Alzheimer’s is not only a patients disease but a caregivers disease as well. He hopes to bring more awareness to Alzheimer’s and Dementia so that more funding will be aimed toward research for better maintenance medication and some day a cure.
His videos can be viewed at several websites and on You Tube: Rick’s Phelps Videos
