Being a caregiver for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or a related disorder can be one of the most difficult tasks you ever face. Relationships are forced to evolve as new responsibilities, medical issues and emotional struggles take center stage. The disease brings new challenges and life changing adjustments to daily routines and the normal stresses of life are compounded. Without proper support, a caregiver’s risk of dying increases by 40%. If a caregiver is over the age of 65, the risk jumps up to 70%.
When you find yourself on the Alzheimer’s journey, Alzheimer’s Community Care is here to help. Since 1997, Alzheimer's Community Care has led Caregiver Support Groups across Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie County. At these meetings, you will have access to the most accurate information about the disease, dementia-specific guidance of a licensed nurse, and the support of active caregivers who can provide both practical advice and an empathetic ear. The Alzheimer’s journey is difficult, but when you learn that you are not alone and not isolated from resources that make sense, you realize that where there is help, there is hope. Contact us today and see how we can help.
