Care for the Caregivers
Betsy Wurzel shares what she learned from hard-fought experience.

Betsy Wurzel, a nurse by training, became a personal caregiver to two family members afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease. Inspired by her experiences, she offers support to caregivers. In this interview she talks about:

  • The impact of caregiving on caregivers, physically, emotionally, mentally

  • Life after caregiving (yes, it does exist)

  • The necessity of self-care for the caregiver

  • Dealing with guilt, PTSD, and other impacts

  • Asking for help.
