CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Between the months of March and April Fairfield Township and Springfield Township police departments investigated murder-suicide.

Ed Connor is a psychologist and has been in practice since the mid 1980's.

Connor says he’s seen cases over the years where caretakers become overwhelmed.

"A lot of times when people are in these positions of providing care, they're isolated. Over time they maybe sleep deprived and they do not think rationally,” said Dr. Connor.

He says signs that caretakers maybe in distress are depression, feeling of hopelessness, and if they start to give away prized possessions.

"The first thing to do is to really reach out to friends and family, even if it's only for an hour, where you can get away, get out the house and do something for yourself is so important,” said Dr. Connor.

He also suggest contacting Social Services for help. For more information about an Alzheimer's disease 24 hour helpline click here.
