The month of November is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month and National Family Caregivers Month (NFCM). Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive and often debilitating form of dementia, and patients need an increased level of care as the disease progresses. Those who provide care for patients with Alzheimer’s disease often require their own support system, as the physical and emotional stress can be difficult to process alone.
