Being an Alzheimer’s caregiver is a challenging job. Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s requires physical, mental, and emotional strength, and oftentimes family caregivers can feel overwhelmed. During those times, it is important for caregivers to have resources to help them learn to cope with difficult or challenging behaviors and avoid caregiver burnout.
Nationally acclaimed Alzheimer’s and dementia care specialist Teepa Snow offers her expertise in a 6-part series on how to better interact with loved ones with dementia and the importance of caring for yourself so you can better care for your loved one. This video is part 2 of the series and covers the senses of a person with dementia.
Ms. Snow’s unique and straightforward caregiver coaching approach often helps family caregivers put their feelings into perspective, while, at the same time, helping them find the humor in their day to day life.
