Often, it is a long journey when caring for someone with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia. At the start, providing extra support may feel manageable, but as time progresses and because of the nature of the disease, caregivers will often feel additional stress.
When that happens, it could be time to ask for help.
But how can you know when you tip over from managing well to not? How can you even start to know who to ask for support?
Home Instead partners, Roobrik and the A-LIST have created a brief assessment so that you can learn what kinds of care options might be needed and how to talk to your loved ones about these things.
Home Instead offers free monthly newsletters with tips and advice for caregivers of elderly loved ones.
Each Home Instead Senior Care franchise is independently owned and operated.
