Talk to someone
If you are impacted by dementia, you may feel tired, overwhelmed and lonely at times. Many caregivers and people living with the disease experience a range of emotions, are at higher risk of depression and do not know where to turn.
It can be extremely beneficial to reach out and speak with someone who understands your experience. The Alzheimer Society of Calgary offers personalized support for people living with dementia and their family members.
