Supporting Families Living With Dementia

​No Thanks, We're Fine: Supporting Families Living With Dementia

A compelling video featuring caregivers to people with dementia appealing to their fellow caregivers to seek support and take respite. Caregivers speak movingly based on their own experiences directly to others like them on the importance of finding information, obtaining home care and other types of in-house assistance, joining support groups, and accessing respite through day programs and overnight guest houses. Caregivers appeal to their peers to obtain assistance right away, not to wait for a crisis to occur and not to be ashamed to get help. The clear message is that no caregiver to loved ones with dementia is a superman or superwoman.
