The top 5 things a caregiver needs to understand are:

  • We cannot fix dementia

  • We cannot control dementia

  • We are not at the expense of dementia or caregiving

  • Every caregiver's path is unlike anyone else's.  Do not compare

  • Every patient's path with dementia is different.  Symptoms are similar, but not exactly the same.  Do not compare.  -Vic

 

Seeing the Signs

Accepting the Signs

Forgiving Ourselves

Powerlessness

Signs a caregiver is in trouble:

  • Highly fatigued

  • No energy

  • Irritable, impatient, and angry

  • Feel they have accomplished very little or nothing

  • No concentration
