Telling our caregiver stories has many benefits, both for those who listen and for us when we tell them. Learning how others managed their journey as Alzheimer’s caregivers, what suggestions they have for self-care, and navigating challenges are essential lessons.
Visits with our loved ones have been an enormous challenge in the past year (or more). Even though visits are happening more thanks to the vaccines, keeping our loved ones safe is still a high priority. My podcast guest & I discussed many ways to have safe visits during Covid and beyond.
Being one of the 16+ million Alzheimer’s caregivers can be one of the longest marathons you’ll ever undertake. I am unaware of anyone who has gone on this journey alone. It’s entirely reasonable to need help. Getting help and taking care of yourself is critical to taking good care of your loved one.
