Being the Caregiver for Someone with Dementia is Often Challenging
Being the primary caregiver to a loved one with dementia can be a challenging task, to say the least. Aaron Howard from The Jewish Herald Voice shares the story of Holly Gershbein who is the caregiver for her mother Bertha. Dementia may decrease a person’s ability to process information, but that does not mean you cannot show them that you care. Listen with your heart and give them plenty of love, and while you are at it pat yourself on the back. Sometimes life can be tough, but you are doing a great job.
