"We understand the overwhelming feeling of caring for a loved one with memory loss. Caregivers may feel they are all alone and not sure who to turn to for help or simply ask questions."
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between the terms "Care Partner" and "Caregiver?"
Care partner and caregiver are terms sometimes used interchangeably, but the meanings are different. In the beginning of the diagnosis of memory loss a person may be involved with their own care and be able to make decisions with their spouse (care partner) or family member. The term care partner is commonly used in the initial stages of Alzheimer's disease. As the disease progresses the person living with memory loss may no longer be able to decisions. The term caregiver means the designated individual or spouse, or family member is providing all the care to the person living with memory loss.
