Being a caregiver for an individual with Alzheimerโ€™s Disease or related dementia is challenging and demanding. Although self-care and asking for help are both problematic due to feelings of guilt and failure, they are vital for you and your loved one.

Self-care includes a healthy diet, exercise, ample sleep, leisure time, and lots of support. To get respite from your overwhelming caregiving duties, reach out to family, friends, home health agencies, and adult daycares. A great avenue of support is a caregiverโ€™s group in which you can share with peers who understand your struggles. Second Family MCC facilitates a caregiver support group on the third Tuesday of every month from 1-2PM at our Wilkes-Barre facility. Contact us for more information at 570-285-4320.

The Alzheimerโ€™s Association also has a confidential Helpline 24/7, 365 days a year staffed by specialists and masterโ€™s-level clinicians. Call toll-free any time day or night at 1-800-272-3900.
