Caregiving Resources for Alzheimer's Disease

Taking care of someone with dementia can be a demanding full-time job.

Here are some ways you can take care of your physical and emotional well-being:

  • Eat healthy foods and get enough rest and exercise.
  • Seek healthcare for yourself when you need it.  
  • Use respite services (such as a community center) where your loved one can enjoy activities while you run errands, go to work or take a break.
  • Find community programs that provide support and caregiver training.
