Stress does impact the progression of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia; and, stress can also lead to depression in Alzheimer’s care partners.

The role of stress in the Alzheimer’s paradigm is enormous.

All Alzheimer’s caregivers should focus on the negative impacts of stress, and the resultantnegative complications that can be caused by stress in Alzheimer’s Care.

I remain convinced that my constant, ongoing, effort to reduce stress in the lives of both my mother and me lead to a more positive outcome in our combined Alzheimer’s experience.
