Primary caregivers are the most important people in the diminished life of anyone who has progressive dementia, such as Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease, and Huntington's Chorea. Dementia in all its progressive forms has a devastating impact on caregivers and other family members. They experience guilt, stress in the extreme, exhaustion, and numerous other serious problems that affect their physical, mental, and spiritual health. This book inspires and empowers caregivers so that they can maintain their own health, happiness, and sanity in order to provide loving care for the person who is ill. With descriptions of the problems and exercises to help in finding solutions, the book covers: the needs of caregivers; communication and feelings; grief and its various phases; sharing and support; and, stress management techniques for everyone involved.
