World Alzheimer’s Month is an international campaign every September to raise awareness and challenge the stigma that surrounds dementia. The impact of World Alzheimer’s Month is growing, but the misinformation that surrounds the disease remains a global issue that requires global action.
We also understand that caring for someone with dementia can be challenging and stressful. It is important for family caregivers to take care of their own physical and mental health needs by seeking respite and focusing on self-care.
Throughout the year, we focus on the impact Alzheimer’s has on the family. Here are three blog posts we have recently written on this topic that family caregivers have found to be helpful. We hope you do too.
