Alabama Cares: Care for the Caregivers
Caregivers play a vital role in helping seniors maintain their health and independence. Although caregiving is rewarding, its demands can have a negative effect on the health and well-being of the caregivers themselves – especially in terms of emotional impact. Caregivers of stroke survivors and individuals with dementia, for example, are at higher risk for depression and anxiety disorders. Alabama Cares, a program of the United Way Area Agency on Aging, is here to help caregivers with the issues that may arise from their unique responsibilities, demands and stress of caregiving.
