From press release: "Families Care: Alzheimer’s Caregiving in the United States reveals that compared to other caregivers, people who care for someone with Alzheimer’s conduct more difficult tasks such as bathing, feeding and dealing with incontinence. These duties are done in addition to a full-time job for more than half of the caregivers in the study and leads to the caregiver having to sacrifice 'down time,' including giving up time with their families and friends, exercising, and vacations. Seventy-four percent of the caregivers reported they had unmet needs of their own."
