Please watch the short video below made by The Peter Rabins Alzheimer’s Family Support Center at John Hopkins. You'll see that most Alzheimer's provokes anger and guilt in many caregivers.
Alzheimer's disease changes the person and their behaviors. As the video explains, it's important to recognize that it's the disease at work. Being able to adapt to the changes can help the caregiver feel less frustration and guilt.
It's hard — but the sooner you realize the person with Alzheimer's isn't doing things intentionally, the easier it will be to be a compassionate caregiver.
