The thing I get asked about the most when it comes to caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia is how to manage your guilt. I know guilt was a big part of my Alzheimer’s journey, and I hear from so many other people who struggle with it, as well.
I have learned that you probably won’t find a way to get rid of your guilt forever. You will probably always be able to find something to feel guilty for. But there are ways to manage and cope with your guilt so that you can stop spending so much time feeling guilty and beating yourself up. In this episode, I share 4 steps to stop feeling so much guilt, as well as other tips to help you manage your guilt.
This episode is actually a sneak peek into a monthly training video for the Alzheimer’s Daughters Club, which is open to join now through Thursday, October 5th. So if you like what you hear and want to get more content like this each month, make sure to check out the Alzheimer’s Daughters Club and join today! I hope to see you there!
