Millions of Americans are currently dealing with the demands of providing day-to-day care for loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease. Providing this type of care can be challenging, often placing high levels of emotional, physical and even financial stress on the caregivers. When caregivers have shared memories and experiences with the individual, they may experience even greater emotional tension and find the changing roles difficult to handle, according to Stoner-Gast.
