After an Alzheimer’s or dementia disease diagnosis, many people believe the best care for a loved one is at home in familiar surroundings with less disruption of routines. This results in less confusion for the Alzheimer or dementia sufferer and prolongs their ability to stay at home. At the outset of Alzheimer and/or memory care related challenges, family members generally assume the roll of caregiver. However, given the progressive nature of these diseases, the increasing efforts required of the non-proffessional caregiver begin to take a toll on their physical and emotional health, family life, and career. Subsequently, families and loved ones with the best intentions simply "burnout".
Neglecting other responsibilities, lacking confidence in caregiving skills, and resenting demands placed on your time, reflect the typical feelings experienced. As the day-to-day demands increase, you seek respite care, but no one seems to understand the specialized needs of your loved one. Looking for providers with dementia care experience is often challenging and frustrating.
