Information and support are key to helping alleviate fears and assisting with planning for the future
As distressing as an Alzheimer’s diagnosis can be, this is a time for acceptance, and for you to build a support network, gather information to help alleviate fears, and plan for the future. Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease can be stressful and overwhelming and can affect everyone differently. As the caregiver or family member of a person who has Alzheimer’s, you will likely face many challenges, both in adjusting to a new role and in coping with the profound changes in a loved one. Having support and practical information can help keep you on track.
