Caring for an individual with Alzheimerʼs disease or a related dementia can be challenging and, at times, overwhelming for unprepared family members who become carers. Frustration is a normal and valid emotional response to many of the difficulties of being a caregiver.

Frustration and stress may negatively impact physical health or can cause irritation towards your loved ones. Unfortunately, we cannot simply change the behaviour of a person suffering from dementia, but we can control one thing: how we respond to that circumstance.
