Physical Support

The Family Caregivers part of this website is divided into two main sections: emotional or physical support. Emotional support focuses on a caregiver’s emotional needs while caring for a loved one with dementia. Physical support covers some important signposts that can help caregivers navigate the person’s needs no matter where in the journey of dementia you both are today. Feel free to search this page by stage of the condition, when to see the doctor, or making decisions about care.

The information on this page was developed by Nicole Batsch, Ph.D. and is for educational purposes.
