Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia can be physically and emotionally demanding. As the disease progresses, some families find it difficult to bring a non-family member into the home or have someone else help care for a parent or spouse. It is important for you and those around you to see that hiring a person to help provide care is not a sign of weakness; it is a sign of strength.
