Caregivers for people with neurodegenerative illnesses If you are a caregiver to someone who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, or dementia, it helps to prepare yourself for the next stages. You need to know what to expect, how to take care of the patient, and what signs to watch out for as the illness progresses. At the same time, remember that you are important too. It is vital that you meet a doctor and a therapist regularly, so that you can take care of yourself.
