Caring for Caregivers

Saturday, September 13th, 2014

As America’s population ages, an increasing number of families are caring for loved ones with dementia.

In a bid to ease the burden on caregivers, the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America hosts its Five Boroughs Concepts in Care Conference in New York annually. The event offers financial advice for families struggling to help loved ones with dementia, and aims to provide stress relief and tips for caregivers.

Keeping the caregivers healthy, experts say, is key to ensuring successful care for patients.
