Central Ohio caregivers face challenges they may never have expected. Many are caring for aging parents while struggling to juggle their own children’s needs and a full-time job. Others are providing care for a senior loved one who has Alzheimer’s disease and trying to find ways to manage difficult behaviors.
What we know about caregivers is that they are usually female. They are the wives, daughters and daughters-in-law of someone who needs care. Connecting with people who share their struggles is one of the best ways to relieve the stress of caregiving. Sometimes the best solution is an online support group.
