Alzheimer's during the COVID-19 pandemic

People with dementia or Alzheimer's are a risk group for the SARS-COV-2 coronavirus. In addition, the confinement situation has interrupted their routines and those of the caregivers, so it is important to support them with reliable information and resources developed by professionals, to help them overcome this situation in the best possible way.
