The Emotional Rollercoaster of Alzheimer's Disease

Coping with Alzheimer's disease

Every 66 seconds, someone in the United States develops Alzheimer's disease, making it the 6th leading cause of death in the country. The world of Alzheimer's is not a happy place and many families opt to send patients to nursing homes as it is easier for their emotional well-being to cope with the impact of this disease. Many caregivers give up on their jobs as it can leave them feeling empty and tired.
