Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s Disease can be exhausting and can take a toll on the caregiver’s health. A support group can help with managing stress so the caregiver is able to take much needed time for themselves. The amount of responsibilities can become quite overwhelming and you may find yourself too busy to socialize, exercise and eat right. This can lead to feeling lonely and depressed. Finding a support group can help you to cope by giving comfort and assistance in dealing with the many challenges involved with caring for a loved one with this disease.
If you are caring for someone who has dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease and would like to join our support group or have questions, please email Janet at [email protected]
