Goal: 15,000 Progress: 3,998
Sponsored by: The Alzheimer's Site

The cruel reality of a degenerative disease such as Alzheimer's is that it doesn't merely impact the patient who has been diagnosed. All too often, we forget the ripple effect such an illness has on the friends, loved ones, and family members surrounding the person with Alzheimer's. Many of these people are also caregivers directly responsible for keeping the patient safe and as healthy as possible.

Being a caregiver is one of the most incredibly challenging and generous acts of love any of us will ever perform on behalf of another. Fear, exhaustion, anger, depression, guilt, and grief are often part of the experience. Harboring negative feelings doesn't make the caregiver a bad person, but it can have a negative impact on their daily lives and long-term emotional well-being.

Caregivers need to be cared for as well. Sign and share this pledge today to honor a caregiver in your life and to raise awareness about the need for support networks that directly address the special needs of caregivers.

I personally pledge to:

Recognize the incredibly difficult work of a caregiver in my life.

Remember that caregivers have special needs and stresses of their own, including fear, exhaustion, anger, depression, guilt, and grief.

Realize that I can take an pro-active role in helping to relieve these stresses by offering to help with personal errands, childcare, healthcare-related research.

Endeavor to offer a smile, hug, or kind word, whenever I see the occasion.

Use any opportunity I can to raise awareness about the needs of caregivers in my community.

Share this pledge with friends and family via social media or email and encourage them to pledge as well.
