Because of the change in demographic structure there are more and more elderly people in Poland. They develop illnesses common in old age. From Alzheimer's disease suffer about 250 thousands of people in Poland. Each one, according to the phase of the disease should be provided with round-the-clock supervision. The vast majority of caregivers in our country are family members. However, the time of caregiving becomes for the guide a time of gradual removal from the society. It weakens guardian's bounds with other members of the family, make them resign from taking part in political, social and cultural life as well as causes a considerable aggravation of mental and physical health. Lack of efficient help system excludes and marginalise guardians.
