A diagnosis of dementia is a stressful experience. An overwhelming amount of information needs to be taken in during an already difficult time.
iGeriCare's goal is to provide free & easy access to simple lessons and helpful resources that allow individuals to learn about all aspects of dementia at their own pace, in their own homes.
Access information at your own pace. Our lessons were developed by experts in geriatrics and mental health.
Browse our collection of useful resources related to dementia. Further your knowledge and find supports for your journey.
Connect with experts and others who are facing the same challenges through our live events and discussion boards.
Patients with dementia and their caregivers readily use the internet for health information and advice, which may not be accurate or evidence-based. iGeriCare seeks to solve these issues through an accessible and innovative online learning platform.
