I am a caregiver, friend, or family member of someone living with dementia.
Your role as a caregiver for someone living with dementia can be rewarding, challenging and at times confusing.
As a spouse, adult child, sibling, in-law, or friend, you may find yourself taking on the role of a caregiver of someone living with dementia. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when someone you know has been diagnosed with dementia.
Higher levels of distress are experienced by caregivers of people living with dementia.
Caregivers of people with dementia are less likely to access supports and are at higher risk for multiple health issues. High caregiver distress is also a predictor of hospital admission and premature Long Term Care admission.
Finding support for people living with dementia and for caregivers can make a significant and positive difference.
