Anything that can help a caregiver is good.it is an extremely difficult process.all help is welcome and needed.isolation is a common feeling for caregivers.even if your surrounded by tons of people the enormity of your responsibilities can make you feel very alone.I'm glad to see a program that gears towards helping the person with alzheimers have better quality of life and helping their caregiver.I sleep when I'm able.mom's needs are my top priority.if mom's sleeping and I'm alone and awake,I use much my time putting things into perspective and examing the latest medical research on this wretched disease.godspeed a new and better medicine I pray and help my mom,along with millions of others afflicted.thankyou,carla danesi gloria's daughter "remember gloria,gloria lives"
