an excerpt from this post says:

“A number of studies and surveys show that caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia often exacts a physical and psychological toll. Several show that Alzheimer’s caregivers have a greater risk than the general population for high level of stress hormones, impaired immunity, and greater incidences of hypertension and coronary heart disease .”
