Caring for a loved one with dementia can be overwhelming. As demands grow, caregivers often report feelings of sadness, stress, guilt, anger, isolation, and depression.
According to the Alzheimer’s Association’s 2018 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures, more than 16 million Americans are caring for someone living with Alzheimer’s or other type of dementia. In 2018, caregivers of people with dementia provided an estimated 18.4 billion hours of unpaid care, valued at $232 billion.
