As the Baby Boomer generation ages, more and more people are finding themselves in a precarious position. Many are working had at maintaining a relationship, managing a career, and raising their children. It is quite a juggling act with so many balls continually in the air. It becomes tougher when taking care of a parent with Alzheimer’s disease is added to the mix. Each ball gets tossed around as we try to focus, but if we are not careful, all the balls can come crashing down. In an effort to be the best partner, employee, parent, and child, most caregivers stop taking care of themselves. Soon the stress is overwhelming.
