Dementia Caregivers Need Help Too

Final Thoughts

The emotional and physical burden of caring for someone with dementia can be overwhelming. Support groups can often help caregivers deal with these demands. These groups can also offer helpful information about dementia and its treatment.
 
It is important that people involved with dementia care occasionally have time off from round-the-clock nursing demands. Some communities provide respite facilities or adult day care centers that will care for dementia patients for a period of time, giving the primary caregivers a break. Eventually, many patients with dementia require the services of a full-time nursing home.
