Caring for a loved one is overwhelming at times. Although no medical conditions are easy to handle, Alzheimer's is a particularly challenging disease for caregivers due to the emotional and physical aspects associated with the disease. According to statistics, more than 40 percent of Alzheimer's caregivers report stress. Alzheimer's can result in mood swings and confusion. Your loved one may get easily flustered or frustrated, which can lead to frustration for you too. Although your job is to provide care, it's important to make sure to always care for yourself.
