This episode even caught me by surprise.  In this segment, I dive into research about how the daily pressures of caregiving can take a serious toll on our own memory, and a few ways to manage stress better.  While extreme stress hasn’t been found to cause Alzheimer's, it has been associated with accelerated brain aging and can even lead to temporary memory loss.  In addition, you’ll get some invaluable strategies for handling persistent caregiver stress, while finding more balance at home and work. There’s even a bit of humor in this one. And, as always, good tips to get additional support from coworkers and your employer, too.
