Nearly 15 million people are caregivers to someone who has Alzheimer’s Disease or other dementia.
Those of us who have cared for loved one know how difficult it can be. There are days when we’ve felt pushed to the max, question our own quality of life, and wonder how our other relationship can possibly survive, much less how we can survive. Taking care of the caregiver is critical. There are many resources out there to help- Take a look at our resource section where you’ll find lots of helpful information, learn about local organizations in South Florida, and available Support Groups that meets your needs and schedule. We’ll be adding to this section often– PLEASE send us an additional resources that have been helpful to you.
Support Groups can be a invaluable resource for caregivers. In Miami-Dade alone, there are many throughout the county offered by VItas Hospice Care– In addition the Alzheimers’ Caregiver Support Group offered groups throughout Broward County and the Southern Part of Palm Beach County.
