Caring for someone who has dementia is often physically, emotionally and financially draining. Because of this, family caregivers often find it very difficult to care for themselves. The Meaning and Hope Institute is committed to supporting you, the family caregiver, in maintaining hope and finding meaning in your relationship with a loved one living with dementia. With support, you can increase your resiliency, strengthen your ability to endure pressures, and emerge stronger despite the ongoing stress and grief that may persist month after month, and year after year.
