The Caregiver's Role

(Page 2 of 2)

  • Ask your loved one for their advice on how they feel and what they would like to see happen when and if the symptoms of disorder return.


  • Seek the help of your family (spouses, siblings, children) for support, and much needed respite time.


  • You must be prepared to deal with the extreme mood swings that your loved one demonstrates, and be understanding throughout the behavioral changes, and always expect the unexpected and deal with it appropriately and sensibly.
