You’re not alone
Helping yourself helps your loved one
The unpredictability of caring for someone with agitation in Alzheimer's dementia can take its toll. That’s why it’s important to find balance within your own life. Your mental well-being is not only necessary to help care for someone else, but also vital in making sure you don't wear yourself out.
Build a care team and utilize them
Enlist family members and friends to increase your support network. When you need a hand or maybe just a break, see if one of them can step in, and be specific with your requests so they know how to help.
Carve out time for yourself
Socializing can make a big difference to help you find balance. Maybe it’s a walk in the park or shopping with a friend. Simple outings or activities on a regular basis can help you reset and maintain your own well-being.
Reach out to a local support group
There are local and nationally sponsored support groups all over, both in person and online. You can also speak with a therapist who specializes in caregiver support.
