Caring for an individual with dementia will prove to be both a rewarding and challenging undertaking. Your patience and tolerance are put to the test dealing with daily ups and downs, unexpected changes, and chronic fatigue. It is normal to feel overwhelmed; caregiving is a physically and emotionally demanding task. However, if you are not careful, stress can place harm on yourself and the person you are caring for. The Alzheimer’s Association and other organizations offers resources for your support.
