10 Ways to Prevent Burnout When Caring for a Loved One with Alzheimer's [INFOGRAPHIC]

Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s is both rewarding and challenging. When you’re tasked with being a caregiver, taking steps to avoid burnout is essential. First, remember to take time for yourself. Seek Alzheimer’s support from your loved one’s doctors, from your family members, and in support groups with other caregivers. Stick to a schedule so you can manage your own time while minimizing your loved one’s anxiety. Most importantly, know when to ask for help. Eventually, Alzheimer’s care requires around-the-clock attention that you will be unable to provide at home. For your loved one’s health and safety, choose an Alzheimer’s care home when continuous care becomes necessary.
