You Know You Need Help – But What and Where to Find It?

Download Memory Issue Checklist

It’s not uncommon to realize “almost too late” that family members recognize they need help with someone with memory deficits. Long-distance runners call it “hitting the wall.” Primary caregivers may say, “Enough is enough. I cannot do this alone anymore.” Here are some things to consider when looking for help:

  • What is the hardest part of your day?
  • What would be most helpful for you? For your loved one?
  • What is most important? Keeping the person safe? Giving you a break in the care cycle?
  • How can you do this without feeling guilty?  (If you weren’t providing the care, what would happen to the person?)
  • Where should I start to look for help? Find a trusted, knowledgeable community resource that takes time to talk with you and answers your questions.
  • What is this life saving help called? Respite – “giving the caregiver a break from the daily routine.”
