Alzheimer’s Caregivers May Become Isolated

The caregiver role is a challenging one. The majority of those surveyed say it’s difficult, and can be overwhelming. Home Instead surveyed 692 Alzheimer’s family caregivers, including 102 from Canada and 590 from the U.S., who completed an online survey between April 13-23, 2015.

  • 74% of caregivers report they and their loved one have become more isolated.
  • 87% leave the house less frequently with their loved one.
  • 62% stay home, spending less at local businesses.
  • 55% say staying home is just easier

This site was inspired by my Mom’s autoimmune dementia.

It is a place where we separate out the wheat from the chaffe, the important articles & videos from each week’s river of news. With a new post on Alzheimer’s or dementia appearing on the internet every 7 minutes, the site’s focus on the best information has been a help to many over the past 15 years. Thanks to our many subscribers for your supportive feedback.

The site is dedicated to all those preserving the dignity of the community of people living with dementia.
