Journey Through Understanding

Posted by Joe B. Nester on October 15, 2015 at 4:00 PM

There are probably not many things in life as difficult as caring for someone with Alzheimer's. In the case of a husband or a wife caring for a spouse the difficulty is magnified by the additional grief of loss as their partner effectively slips through time into a past life that may not include them.

The caregiving process is a long road strewn with new challenges as the disease moves through its stages. Updating skills along the way becomes essential for a caregiver. Experts on the subject can offer insights into some of the latest techniques and workshops can offer opportunities for upgraded skills along with a chance to bond with people facing similar challenges.

Caregivers should not try to go-it alone. Burnout is an all too real danger and proactive steps should be considered to avoid its pitfalls. Taking time to talk with family and friends, researching websites, attending workshops and joining support groups are activities caregivers can take to avoid problems with their own health.

Every day may bring opportunities for a caregiver to enter into the world of their loved one. And every day there may be beautiful discoveries made within that world. The more a caregiver understands about the disease and its progression the better chance of having a successful journey.
