Caregiving FAQs

La Apoplejia o Derrame Cerebral (Stroke)


Un derrame cerebral es una lesión cerebral, que se produce cuando se interrumpe o se reduce ampliamente el riego sanguíneo del cerebro; éste se queda sin oxígeno ni nutrientes y, en cuestión de minutos, comienzan a morir las células cerebrales. Por lo tanto, un derrame cerebral se considera una emergencia médica y requiere que se lo diagnostique y se lo trate sin demora.


FCA currently publishes two online newsletters covering all aspects of long-term family caregiving.

Evaluating Medical Research Findings and Clinical Trials


Hardly a day goes by without a story on television, in the newspaper, or on the Internet about new medical research findings. You might hear about a new drug to treat Alzheimer’s, a promising “cure” for cancer, or a breakthrough discovery in Parkinson’s disease. Or you might see articles about particular foods or dietary supplements that are said to promote health or prevent or slow the course of illness. Should you try to get these drugs for a family member who is sick? Should the person change his diet? Take more vitamins?
