Family therapy is very effective in enhancing the quality of life of the patient with AD and their family members and other caregivers by providing a safe environment to openly discuss their concerns with each other and find better ways of communicating, thinking, and behaving that helps one another cope better – psychologically, emotionally, and physically.
It helps caregivers of the AD patient increase their social support and prevent burnout, thereby increasing their quality of life as well as ability to provide care. It can also help the AD patient and the family members cope with the emotional, mental and social issues that they may be facing as a result of the disease.
It depends on the problems needed to be discussed which are different for each family, and how much support is required in the family therapy sessions by family members.
