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

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.”
