It is difficult to balance taking care of those we love and taking care of ourselves. This can be especially true when dealing with the unique challenges presented in caring for someone with dementia.
Because dementia expresses itself in many different ways, each person with dementia will have different challenges and needs. Dementia is also variable enough in its expression in one person that each day (or hour, or minute) can be vastly different than the next. Caregivers for those with dementia are often asked to hold onto compassion and understanding while being incredibly flexible. In addition, though it is exciting that there are many resources available for those with dementia and their caregivers, it can be difficult to sort through all of the information out there to find the things that are most helpful for you.
At MemoryCare we understand and value the work you do to care for your loved one, and we want you to know that feeling overwhelmed or stressed is a normal part of the care-giving process.
We hope to provide the most personalized, comprehensive support possible to help deal with the natural challenges of caring for someone with dementia. We strongly believe that you deserve to be a happy, healthy caregiver and know that this will improve your ability to care for your loved one as well.
