Dementia caregivers handle a lot of work and responsibility for many years, but often do not realize how critical their role is. This presentation discusses caregiving in the context of dementia. It covers commonalities and differences amongst various types of caregivers. It looks at a range of caregivers who may vary in terms of their age, gender, relationship with the care-recipient, whether paid or unpaid, and whether living with the person or coordinating care from a distance.
