My Dad and I got involved when dealing with my mother's Alzheimer's. While we lost Mom almost two years ago, Dad and I still talk about the Thursday morning Caregiver Support Group we used to attend. Besides solid advice from Paula Falk and her team, the group taught us one of the most important aspects of being a caregiver...you've got to remember, no matter how frustrated and sad you might be, you're not alone.
The support we received directly or indirectly each week was an incredible tool to helping us deal with losing Mom to this horrible disease.
If you're feeling frustrated as a caregiver or know somebody in the Sarasota area who needs help, contact the Caregiver Resource Center. They're just a mouse click away!
