I think it is safe to say that I am gaining a good understanding of Alzheimer's caregivers.
So far, I received about 12,000 emails. Add in another 36,000 comments under the articles on the Alzheimer's Reading Room and that equals a lot of information and feedback.
Some, maybe many, Alzheimer's caregivers tend to blame themselves when things go wrong. Or, when the Alzheimer's patient is unhappy. This is a natural human tendency.
But, should they blame themselves?
