Treating individuals with Alzheimer’s disease involves guiding and supporting their caregivers as well. Stress and depression can take their toll on those who tend to the daily needs of Alzheimer patients. Unaddressed, these problems can affect the caregivers’ performance and, in turn, the well-being of the people they care for. There are ways to help your patients’ caregivers deal with the challenges of providing care.

We have compiled a list of professionals in the community who offer these types of ongoing counseling services.
