When a family caregiver is providing care for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia it is a tremendous burden, both physically and mentally on the caregiver. The responsibility on the caregiver increases dramatically as the disease progresses. For that reason, it is so important for the caregiver to know that relief is out there. For example, local Alzheimer’s organizations can provide you with information and community support systems and groups.
