Caregiving for a loved one with Alzheimer's disease or dementia is hard. It's hard whether you're caring for your spouse, parent, grandparent, sibling, other family member, or friend. Even if you had an extra ten hours each day to do it, it's hard to manage all the problems that come with dementia. And caring for a loved one with dementia can sometimes feel like a long, lonely journey.

· Which medications can help?
· Which medications can actually make things worse?
· How do you build your care team?
· Why is it important to care for yourself?
· How do you sustain your relationship with your loved one?
· How do you plan for the progression of dementia?
· How do you plan for the end and beyond?
