The demands of Caregiving for a loved one with a dementia is exhausting, isolating and overwhelming. Respite services are difficult to find, friends and family members are reluctant to provide care and paid caregivers are expensive and many times unpredictable.
The current COVID-19 health crisis and government ordered restrictions has depleted the already limited resources that family caregivers depended on to barely get by on a weekly basis.
Prior to the crisis, social isolation was a contributing factor to caregiver burnout and illness, now they have no choice but to isolate. Added fear and uncertainty of their and their loved one’s exposure and health, daily routines that have been disrupted, limited resources now unavailable all have brought them to a breaking point.
