Alzheimer's disease and other dementias can take a toll on caregivers

Caregivers for people with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias may feel the need to reach out to others for support, whether it's help in caring for the individual or just with tasks such as house cleaning and shopping for groceries. But even with assistance, caregiving may be the toughest job most people will ever have. We're here to help with information and resources.

People with dementia may sometimes repeat statements and questions

A person with Alzheimer's may do or say something over and over — like repeating a word, question or activity — or undo something that has just been finished. In most cases, he or she is probably looking for comfort, security and familiarity. People with dementia who ask questions repeatedly may be trying to express a specific concern, ask for help, or cope with frustration, anxiety or insecurity.
