Caring for a Spouse with Alzheimer’s Disease - Help is Available
Alzheimer’s caregiving is a tough job, but caring for a spouse with Alzheimer’s Disease brings its own set of emotional issues that are not experienced or understood by those caring for parents. There is a place on the Internet designed exclusively to discuss, provide support and resources, and total understanding for the challenges Alzheimer’s Disease presents to a spousal/partnership relationship.
TheAlzheimerSpouse.com is a site developed in July 2007 by Joan Gershman, whose husband was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease at the age of 63. Each and every husband or wife caring for a spouse with Alzheimer’s Disease can relate to Joan’s daily blogs that chronicle her struggle with shock, guilt, anger, and emotional pain, as she tries to adjust and accept the destruction Alzheimer’s Disease has brought to her once strong, vital, warm, loving husband.
