Resources for Caregivers
There is no best approach to caregiving for someone living with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia. Responsibilities range from making financial decisions to helping a loved one get dressed. Handling these duties is hard work, but resources and support are available to help you. It is important to take care of your own physical and mental health as well as manage a wide range of tasks. Research shows that caregivers who access support activities regularly are healthier and better able to provide care.
