3 Key questions for the family caregiver
1. Do you need a place that will take care of your loved one when you are at work, or need to take a break from non-stop care of your loved one?
2. Do you ever feel guilty about being frustrated or angry with your loved one?
3. Do you wish you had someone to talk to? Someone who really understands what you are going through – and can offer real answers, complete information, and a detailed plan to help make the life of your loved one as healthy, happy and productive as possible?
If you answered, “yes” to one or more of these questions, Alzheimer’s Family Center stands ready to help. Call (714) 593-1844.
