Caring for Someone with Dementia
Caring for someone with dementia can be a complex task. It can be frustrating, confusing, and emotionally and physically exhausting, though it has its rewards and good times.
Whether you're a family, volunteer or paid caregiver, if you’re the only one providing care, you may wish to get help at some time.
Every community has agencies and services that can help you.
Services for the elderly and their caregivers vary in different provinces, territories and regions.
You can find out what services are available in your community from a number of sources:
Private homes such as Angel's Retirement Home
Your local Alzheimer Society
Your family doctor, health clinic or social worker
The public health department in your area such as CCCAC
Your friends, family, neighbours, especially if they have been caregiver
