Alzheimer’s disease; is it simply the feeble and forgetful old person we knew growing up, or is it something bigger than that? Today the buzz in the medical community is dementia and the role it plays in the millions of Americans who are living way longer than they expected.
When you are the Caregiver of a person with Alzheimer’s you become a prisoner in your own world. Although caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s is one of the hardest jobs you’ll ever have most say they wouldn't trade the experience for anything. Being able to care for your loved one through to the end of life is an unbelievable gift. However, without respite care, a temporary break from the demands of care giving, you may be more susceptible to the effects of Caregiver stress, such as depression, exhaustion, guilt and other health problems.
