Alzheimer's takes a devastating toll on caregivers with nearly 60 percent rating the emotional stress of caregiving as high or very high. About 40 percent suffer from depression, and one in five caregivers cut back on their own doctor visits because of their care responsibilities. Hear from April Stauffer, Community Outreach Coordinator - Alzheimer’s Association, as she discusses the practical everyday tips you need to know to get through the day when living with someone with dementia.
