There’s no doubt that you want what’s best for your
loved one

But it can be hard to know where to go for the right information. Here, you can learn a bit more about
supporting your loved one as they start treatment and manage their condition with your help.

Help ease their transition onto LEQEMBI

LEQEMBI infusions may be different than most medications your loved one takes,
but you can help make the adjustment a bit easier:

Share your
number

Even if your loved one is managing their own care, make sure healthcare providers have your number—and permission to speak with you. This way you can contact each other with any questions or concerns.

Talk about Alzheimer’s disease

Talk with your loved one about their diagnosis. If they fully understand—and accept—their condition, it can help you both prepare for the future. This article provides pointers on starting that conversation:

Accepting the Diagnosis (Alzheimer’s Association)

Try to make a daily care plan

Establish routines so you both
know what is expected of you
and can plan accordingly.
Include activities your loved one
will do on their own and ones
you will do together—anything
from preparing dinner to going
for their LEQEMBI infusion.

Manage activities
together

There’s a lot you can do to help your loved one develop new ways to manage daily activities. Focus on what they can still mostly do on their own, and be there to provide day-to-day support by:

  • Reminding them of appointments

  • Setting up autopay for recurring bills

  • Pre-filling a weekly medication organizer

  • Preparing and freezing healthy meals that
    can be microwaved

Start planning for the future

Even though your loved one is still in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease, there’s a lot to
consider, including legal, financial, and long-term care planning. Try and involve your loved
one in the decision-making process, and make sure you understand their wishes.
