How to Hire and Train Help in the Home WorkbookCaring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia can be physically and emotionally demanding. As the disease progresses, some families may find it difficult to bring a non-family member into the home or have someone else help care for a parent or spouse. It is important for you and those around you to see that hiring a person to help provide care is not a sign of weakness; it is a sign of strength. The Alzheimer's Association has created a workbook to help you with the hiring process. Click here to view the workbook.
