Seeing one’s spouse or parent with Alzheimer’s disease is especially challenging on a daily basis. This is why structures have been put in place to help those around them.
Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease is difficult both psychologically and physically. It is therefore important to get help whenever it is needed and before “cracking up”.
Insomnia, anxiety, depressive disorders are often among the ailments families encounter: talk to your doctor and arrange for the recovery time that is absolutely necessary.
– The support of the Alzheimer association
The association Alzheimer offers structures in different regions that welcome patients either for daytime activities or for a stay in which the caregiver can participate while having rest areas.
Short-term hospitalisations can also be set up to give you time to recharge your batteries. The ideal in this case: plan them rather than resorting to them in an emergency.
