On ‘Life Quakes’, a viewer shares the struggle of becoming his mother’s primary caregiver after her Alzheimer’s diagnosis. Hosts Patricia Wu, Jessica Reyes, and guest therapist Joann ‘JoJo’ Venant offers practical tips on setting boundaries, building a support network, and finding resources to help both him and his mom through this difficult time.

Ask for Help NOW

Don’t wait until you’re completely burnt out. Reach out to family, friends, and explore professional services like in-home care when needed. You and your loved one deserve the best care possible.

Build a Support System

Connect with support groups, counselors, and participate in Alzheimer’s research trials if possible. Knowing you’re not alone makes a huge difference.

Schedule Breaks and Respite

Taking time for yourself is essential. Arrange for other family members to help, or explore respite care options to give you time to recharge.
