Most important advice for dealing with someone who has Alzheimer's is to familiarize yourself with it.

Also it is very important to be compassionate and patient with the person. You will need patience because often you will find yourself repeating the same things over & over to this person, which can get frustrating & emotionally draining. Having patience is needed, so that you do not take your frustration out on the person with Alzheimer's, which can make things worse, for both you and them.
