An Emotional Journey

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
