Characterized by memory loss, impaired judgement, loss of language skills, and changed personality, the disease affects not only the patient but also his or her family. The responsibility for caring for the patient often falls on a close family member. This responsibility can take an enormous emotional and physical toll, especially when added to the psychological distress of watching a loved one deteriorate. Because of the burdens of caregiving, the caregiver of the patient is often referred to as the hidden, or second, patient of the disease. This brochure was designed to help you and your family cope with the devastating illness, diminish the burden of caregiving, and work with your family member’s doctor to provide the very best care. As the disease progresses, an Alzheimer’s disease patient will become increasingly dependent upon his or her caregivers. You and your family must also cope with personality changes that can be disturbing.
