Care for Caregivers of Dementia Patients

Posted Oct 26 2008 11:43am
With more and more families having to deal with dementia and alzeheimers people are searching for the help and assistance they need to help those they love be more comfortable as they combat this increasingly broading disease. In the next few years more and more families will be faced with having to take care of aging parents, family members and even friends (According to a 2007 survey conducted by Harris Interactive for The MetLife Foundation, memory loss is second only to cancer as the nations most feared disease.)…while there is help out there for those who have dementia many times there is not help for the caregivers. Caregivers are a rare breed, they give and give all the while still trying to keep the rest of their lives normal. Dr. Bresky has developed a 9 point system that not only helps those who suffer from dementia but also help for caregivers. We all know that if caregivers are not taking care of themselves, they too will fall ill. On today’s show Dr. Bresky talks about his 9 point system and how caregivers can give more to themselves while still helping out those they love.
