Having a loved one who has Alzheimer's disease or dementia is heartbreaking. Caregivers often have difficult choices to make. Stress becomes a vital part of the equation. Though it may never seem like enough, there is help available.
Help can come in a variety of ways. Sometimes understanding the behavior lessens the burden considerably. Sometimes having others to talk to and share with makes a difference. Knowing you're not alone in the world helps. And, depending on your location, there may be local services and/or resources that can provide you with some respite and relief.
Please remember that resources may vary from county to county. Finding out what resources are available locally may take a little investigation. Use the county resource guides on the left as well as the links below.
