Product Description

This dynamic video offers insight, hope, and understanding for anyone who cares for a loved one with Alzheimer's. This disease without
cure currently afflicts more than 30 million people and there are no treatments to halt its progression, making caregiving both
essential-and difficult.

 Topics discussed include:

• Caring for one who doesn't remember your name
• Grieving the losses of their life, and yours
• When an unexpected side of your loved one comes out
• When it feels like your love no longer helps
• Struggling with denial
• Hungering for simple recognition
• Feelings of failure and guilt
• How to handle frustration and anger
• How to care for you-physically, emotionally, spiritually-while you care for someone else
• Feeling exhausted - and what to do, when that happens
• Finding support - on the Web, through the telephone, or in person
• Allowing someone else to care for your loved one
• Times when laughter, singing, and foolishness are entirely appropriate!
• When you worry about making other people comfortable
• Learning to accept the person that s/he is now - there is no going back
• The courage and sacrifice of an Alzheimer's caregiver
