Caregiving and Anger: Coping Skills

0 ratings

Video Description

"Most caregivers deal with anger from time to time: anger at their roles, anger toward others who should support them but don't, anger towards a loved one's decline. Caregivers dealing with dementia in a loved one are especially challenged. Here are some tips on how to cope with this normal emotion.
The number for the 24/7 hotline for the Alzheimer's Association is 1.800.272.3900. And the link to the website for the Alzheimer's Association support group is https://www.alzconnected.org/. I strongly recommend that you contact both of these if you are caring for someone with dementia."
