Many people find themselves caring for a person with Alzheimer’s or dementia from far away. This task can feel especially frustrating as Alzheimer’s progresses and makes it harder to communicate. Here are some ways to find support and manage your stress:
- Join a caregiver support group in your community or online.
- Check out the Eldercare Locator—a federal service that connects older adults and their caregivers with information on senior services.
- Take care of yourself by exercising, eating well, and getting enough sleep.
