Being accepting and understanding
Communication is important not only between the caregiver and the patient, but also between the caregiver and everyone else around them. Maintaining a healthy relationship with loved ones is a must when providing care to somebody who is suffering from Alzheimer's.
Accepting and understanding the effects of this disease is the first step to an easier and healthier relationship with the patient. But, it's also important for caregivers to remember to take care of themselves during this long road.
