Presenter: Linda Sendaula
Linda Sendaula spent seven years as the primary caregiver for her husband who suffered with Alzheimer's. She went from being a reluctant caregiver to finding her voice as a caregiver through the difficult journey to becoming a "professional" Alzheimer's volunteer. She is now committed to helping others through the struggles and frustrations of caring for someone with Alzheimer's.
In this short video Linda answers the following questions:
- What advice would you give caregivers to help them cope with the guilt and frustration involved with caregiving?
- How did your children react to your husband's Alzheimer's diagnosis?
