Memory Disorders often affect the entire family because the chronic stress of watching your loved one slowly decline affects everyone. Comprehensive treatment therefore addresses the needs for the entire family. This includes emotional support, counseling, and educational programs for the individual’s family members as they strive to provide a safe and comfortable environment at home. Through training, caregivers can learn how to control unwanted behaviors, improve communication, and keep the person with Alzheimer’s safe. Research has shown that caregiver’s benefit from training and support groups. For valuable information regarding caregivers, visit www.caregiver.org and search for Alzheimer’s Disease.
