To all Geriatric Psychiatrists Physicians, Neurologists and Physician Assistants, please consider when a caregiver brings a patient in for a visit the topic of discussion may not include certain issues facing the caregiver. Caregivers do not always bring up their frustration with the boredom and lack of stimulation for the patient at home at the doctor’s office. They may have limited resources for adult day care and in-home services and no real experience in how to engage their loved one at home which can also add stress to their everyday lives.
AC has created affordable workbooks that the care giver can use at home and provides a caregiver community page, on the AC website available at no charge. This will provide all sorts of resources and support ideas for caregivers seeking help and guidance.
