Just when you thought that family caregiving couldn’t get more complicated, a new issue seems to pop up. When do you discuss with your dad giving up the car keys? What do you say to your brothers and sisters when you’re stuck with all the caregiving and you can't count on your siblings to assist? When you’re a family caregiver, the list of possible caregiver questions and issues is endless.

Sadly, an ill loved one is the number one trigger for family conflict, according to a study conducted by the Home Instead Senior Care® network. Coping with the reality of a loved one’s dementia or Alzheimer’s disease not only has its emotional difficulties, but logistical ones as well, especially in terms of decision-making and bearing the responsibility of caregiving.
