A Dementia Caregiver Reveals What Worked (and what didn’t)

Are you knee-deep in caring for your parent, in-laws,  grandparent, or other cherished soul?

If your daily routine involves keeping a vigilant eye on the Nest to make sure mom or dad is okay, making those check-in calls to make sure they took their medications or dropping by to make sure their fridge is stocked and meals are prepped, then you might be juggling a plate that feels too full. 

Let’s get real. 

While you may be feeling proud to be the superhero caregiver, it comes with moments of frustration, anger, and the occasional bout of resentment. And oh, let’s not forget the anxiety – it’s like an unwelcome companion on this caregiving rollercoaster.

Fear not, because help is on the horizon!

Meet Usha Tewari, the primary caregiver for her mom with dementia with over 10+ years of experience.

From the initial diagnosis to being in the trenches of caregiving at home, to the emotional transition to hospice, – Usha has been through it all.
