Alzheimer’s Disease Impact On Caregivers, New Survey

According to a new survey, the biggest fear for the majority of family caregivers is their loved one’s general health and physical decline followed by the fear that Alzheimer’s will rob their loved one of the ability to communicate. The survey designed by the National Family Caregivers Association (NFCA) and Forest Laboratories, Inc. and conducted by the GfK Roper Public Affairs & Corporate Communications, shows that the progressive inability to properly communicate is more than just a fear, it is a major source of stress, which interferes with the caregivers obligation and ability to function responsibly.
