Get in touch with the Alzheimer's Society of Alberta and Northwest Territories in Edmonton. They will have a group that both you and your caregiver can attend. Please make sure you do this because in the support groups there are all levels of experience with amazing helpful tips. My Spousal Support group literrally saved my life. Continue to go to your group because as you obtain knowledge you will be able to share it with others that are just beginning their journey.
As well, there is a wealth of knowledge on this site. Finally, I am a strong believer in mentors. I have had one during my late wife's journey and now I am mentoring a number of people to do my payback. Go for coffee with your mentor and talk to them on the phone. They need your support as much as they need yours.
OK, finally (this is the last 'finally') please return here to the cafe to share your experiences with us.
Mentors are not hard to find. In my case I do mentor a number of people. Some I have met through my Spousal Support Group while others I have met through conferences I have gone to. Mentorship is a unique experience and I find I actually learn from those I mentor. In addition, I have mentored others that I became aware of through here as well as other functions I attend such as church. When someone mentions they have a relative or friend with Alzheimer's i strongly suggest attending the Support Groups. Generally I find out they are thinking that they are on this journey alone. Once they join a Support group they have access to others in the same situation and frienships are formed. When this happens i encotage them to do 'coffee' with their friend as well as call at least once a week to share what is happening in their relationship with their Loved One.
