Social interactions eventually overwhelm people with dementia and Alzheimer’s, and it can become difficult for them to even get out of the house. Due to difficult and unusual behaviors, caregivers may also find it hard to go out in public with someone with Alzheimer’s, no matter how beloved.
 Be candid in telling others about the disease, rather than hiding it.
