Supporting Families Living With Dementia

A compelling video featuring caregivers of people living with dementia appealing to their fellow caregivers to seek support and take respite.

I'll Take Care of You

Caregivers speak movingly based on their own experiences directly to others like them on the importance of finding information, obtaining home care and other types of in-house assistance, joining support groups, and accessing respite through day programs and overnight guest houses.

Caregivers appeal to their peers to obtain assistance, and not wait for a crisis to occur.

This is really an excellent video that is worth watching and sharing. If you take the time to let it get rolling you will start to recognize the value.

The clear message is that no caregiver to loved ones with dementia is a superman or superwoman.
