1. Angry Outbursts. Having your loved one or patient violently snap out at you can be very traumatic. Especially becomes sometimes it’s not seen coming. We can be 100% loving and caring and the next moment they will snap at us.

2. Speech problems. Not being able to understand what they are saying makes caregiving very hard. Even by being patient and letting them try to finish, it’s sometimes impossible to understand what they were trying to communicate.

3. There is nothing worse than seeing a loved one depressed. It’s toxic and rubs off on those around them.

4. Making Things Up. When your patient/loved one starts lying it can be hard to find the truth.

5. Mental Decline. This is probably the hardest one to deal with. It’s also one of the main symptoms of Alzheimer’s. Seeing your loved one slowly lose track of who they are is very hard. Especially if it was your mother/father who you’ve known for all your life.
