Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s Disease is one of the most difficult and challenging things anyone can experience. Often, caregivers forget to take care of their own needs. While never easy, there are strategies you can follow to make sure you take care of yourself while caring for someone with Alzheimer's.
In this episode of Hilary Topper on Air, Hilary speaks with William Nields M.D., Medical Director of Cognitive Health Centers - the first primary care clinic in the nation that focuses solely on preventing cognitive health decline and even improving brain health. Learn ways in which you can take care of yourself while caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's Disease as well as ways in which you can take care of your brain health too. Also hear from Janet about her husband's dementia and his treatment at Cognitive Health Centers.
