    Post-It and Alzheimers Care
    reiroc posted:
    Hi, I'm currently researching about the use of Post-It notes during Alzheimer's treatment and care.

    Is it commonly/widely used? How is it used? And is it effective? I'm searching for insights and stories about how people have used them and their thoughts.

    I've recently heard of caregivers using post-it notes to assist those living with the disease and felt really intrigued to learning more about it.

    Thank you!

    Hi reiroc,

    It says here leaving post-it notes around with reminders of daily tasks might help. It also mentions the effectiveness of post-it notes helping those with Alzheimer's to remember daily tasks here .

    I can't seem to find a specific study on sufferers of Alzheimer's using post-it notes but it does seem that it is a common practice among those with the disease.

    Hope this helps!
