Abstract:

This dynamic video offers insight, hope, and understanding for anyone who cares for a loved one with Alzheimer's. This disease without cure currently afflicts more than 30 million people and there are no treatments to halt its progression, making caregiving both essential-and difficult. Topics discussed include: Caring for one who doesn't remember your name. Grieving the losses of their life, and yours. When an unexpected side of your loved one comes out. When it feels like your love no longer helps. Struggling with denial. Hungering for simple recognition. Feelings of failure and guilt. How to handle frustration and anger. How to care for you-physically, emotionally, spiritually-while you care for someone else. Feeling exhausted - and what to do, when that happens. Finding support - on the Web, through the telephone, or in person. Allowing someone else to care for your loved one. Times when laughter, singing, and foolishness are entirely appropriate! When you worry about making other people comfortable. Learning to accept the person that your loved one is now - there is no going back. The courage and sacrifice of an Alzheimer's caregiver.
