Caring for someone with Alzheimer's or dementia can be overwhelming. It is estimated that 40-70% of caregivers suffer from depression and burnout. Emotional and physical challenges can overwhelm even the most capable, leaving them with the inability to care for themselves, their careers, relationships and other things that matter to them. Caregiving is a chronic stress, and I can help.
