Caring for someone with dementia is a labor of love, but it can be very stressful.  Being a caregiver impacts every aspect of daily life and functioning. As dementia progresses, caregivers face tests of stamina, problem-solving, resiliency and patience. The harder the challenges, the more important is for caregivers to maintain their emotional and physical wellness.

State and Local Public Health Partnerships to Address Dementia, The 2018-2023 Road Map charts a course for state and local public health agencies and their partners to act quickly and strategically to prepare all communities by stimulating changes in policies, systems and environments. To focus the public health response, experts developed 25 actions for public health leaders. Alignment of HBI Road Map actions with Essential Services of Public Health ensures that initiatives to address Alzheimer’s can be easily and efficiently incorporated into existing public health initiatives.

A Caregiver's Bill of Rights

By Jo Horne 

I have the right:

To take care of myself. This is not an act of selfishness. It will give me the capability of taking better care of my loved one.

To seek help from others even though my loved ones may object. I recognize the limits of my own endurance and strength.

To maintain facets of my own life that do not include the person I care for, just as I would if he or she were healthy. I know that I do everything that I reasonably can for this person, and I have the right to do some things just for myself.

To get angry, be depressed, and express other difficult feelings occasionally.

To reject any attempts by my loved one (either conscious or unconscious) to manipulate me through guilt, and/or depression.

To receive consideration, affection, forgiveness, and acceptance for what I do, from my loved ones, for as long as I offer these qualities in return.

To take pride in what I am accomplishing and to applaud the courage it has sometimes taken to meet the needs of my loved one.

To protect my individuality and my right to make a life for myself that will sustain me in the time when my loved one no longer need my full-time help.

To expect and demand that as new strides are made in finding resources to aid physically and mentally impaired persons in our country, similar strides will be made towards aiding and supporting caregivers.
