Alzheimer’s disease changes lives for both diagnosed individuals and their loved ones.
Family members frequently take on the caregiver role for someone with Alzheimer’s. In many cases, those loved ones find the experience of providing care to be isolating and stressful. It is a hard road to walk, but in the words of Lao Tzu, “From caring comes courage.”
It’s important to know that caregivers do not have to face this trying experience alone. By joining a caregiver support group, individuals can connect with others who face similar challenges, helping to build each other’s courage. Sharing and finding encouragement along the way is revitalizing.
In partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association, Nazareth Home is committed to helping all families who are affected by this disease. Our caregiver support groups offer a place to exchange information, talk through challenges and learn about resources in our community.
