Caregiving and Alzheimer's: Mindfulness Tools can help

Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s and Dementia can cause emotional, spiritual, and emotional stress. From dealing with the diagnosis to caring for your loved one’s daily needs, caregivers often find themselves looking for help. AARP Texas and the organization Caregiver Wellness Retreat know there is a huge need to help those caring for someone with this debilitating disease.

This is why we have teamed up to bring you a caregiver series devoted to helping you get your life back. Melissa Smith-Wilkinson, who founded the organization, is with us to offer easy-to-do mindfulness tools and easy use techniques caregivers can do throughout the day.
