Redefine Dementia Caregiving

Redefine Dementia Caregiving

Family caregivers of people living with dementia have been called “the invisible second patients” of the condition.

We know so little about caregivers’ daily experiences that it becomes impossible to meaningfully support them.

Cabrini COM Seniors – 40 student journalists in total – developed this WEBSITE to illuminate the impacts of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias on family caregivers. It explores the financial, social, emotional and physical challenges associated with caregiving.

It takes the invisible and makes it visible.

We hope our stories on this site spark important conversations about the social justice implications of dementia caregiving.
