Taking care of a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia is a demanding role. Caregivers often suffer from high levels of stress. Consequently, this can lead to feelings of guilt, sadness, isolation, and burnout. These negative emotions not only inhibit a caregiver’s ability to tend to others. They also impair the caregiver’s quality of life and longevity. Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an educational program designed to help caregivers take care of themselves so that they may take better care of their friend or relative.
