Families dealing with dementia have many difficult decisions to make, including whether to provide care at home or move the individual to a dementia care location. This is a decision that Gloria will eventually have to make. You will meet Gloria and her aging mother, Geraldine, when you watch this featured video. For now, Gloria is her mother’s primary caregiver. Geraldine is relatively high functioning, but that will eventually change, and her needs will become more intensive.
During her interview, Gloria reflects on the many challenges of providing continuous care. Sometimes, she feels as though she is missing out on her own life because she can no longer travel or enjoy the activities she loves.
