A blend of stressful and complex feelings can be triggered when someone becomes a caregiver. There is no doubt that the role can be a difficult one. Best-selling and prolific author Tina Marrelli compassionately took on this complex topic after her sweet 96-year-old father-in-law moved in with Tina and her husband for three years. Tina has written 12 books for professional caregivers and realized that families, friends and other caregivers need their own book. This Guide is the result of that work. It seeks to make health care understandable and to help family, friends and other caregivers be valued and recognized as the expert on their loved one’s care.
This checklist seeks to help you care for the family and other caregivers in your community, those who care for your patients at home, and across the care continuum. Who knows a person better than their family and friends? These questions may get you thinking about how effectively you’re addressing caregiver needs in your population.

Being active and getting exercise helps people with Alzheimer’s feel better. It works for caregivers, too! Whether it’s walking, gardening, dancing, or something else, physical activity can help keep muscles, joints, and the heart in good shape. To help a person with Alzheimer’s stay active: Break exercises into simple, easy-to-follow steps. Make sure the person wears comfortable clothes and shoes that fit well and are made for exercise. Be realistic about how much activity can be done at one time. Several 10-minute “mini-workouts” may be best. For more tips, see Exercise and Physical Activity: Alzheimer’s Caregiving Tips
