Answer

Alzheimer's caregiving is a tough, tough job. The physical demands and the emotional strains are exhausting. Before you know it, you've drifted away from your family and friends — at a time when you need them the most.

Not only can this be harmful to your physical and mental health, but it also can affect the quality of the care you provide. Caregiver burnout is one of the main reasons people with Alzheimer's are placed in nursing homes.
