Caregiver Tips

* Eating

1. Maintain familiar mealtime routines, but adapt to the person’s
changing needs.

2: Give the person food choices, but limit the number of choices. Try to offer appealing foods that have familiar flavors, varied textures, and different colors.

3. Serve small portions or several small meals throughout the day. Make healthy snacks, finger foods, and shakes available. In the earlier stages of dementia, be aware of the possibility
of overeating.

4. Choose dishes and eating tools that promote independence. If the person has trouble using utensils, use a bowl instead of a plate, or offer utensils with large or built-up handles. Use
straws or cups with lids to make drinking easier.

News Medical Life Sciences: New concepts of infectious disease are evolving with the realization that pathogens are key players in the development of progressive chronic diseases that originally were not thought to be infectious. Numerous studies over the past ~25 years have investigated whether there is an association between various infectious agents and Alzheimer’s disease, the most prevalent neurodegenerative condition accounting for dementia in the elderly.

Anne Petrin, a memory care nurse practitioner with Lee Health, says it’s frustrating for patients who struggle to remember names, events, even everyday information. “I think the biggest thing is they feel like they’re not treated as a person anymore, they’re treated as a disease.” READ MORE

Midnight Wonders~Family Friend Poems

I was tossing in my bed
in the midnight hour,
struggling to get a wink of sleep,
but my eyes lay on the clock tower.

I looked upon the dark sky;
it was adored with sparkling pearls,
which giggled at me
and put a shine to my curls.

I gazed at the chubby moon,
who was white and glistening like milk.
Gave me a lovely, motherly smile
through her lips as rosy pink.

Suddenly, I spotted a shooting star,
as fast as a bullet train.
Behind it was a trail of glittering dust,
which appeared as a long diamond chain.

captured the stars and the moon,
so their lovely light could not escape.

All these magnificent objects
made my mind calm.
My eyelids started drooping.
I was grateful for their wonderful charm.

Nature had arrived to aid me
when I was trying to catch sleep.
She, with her caring palms,
lulled me to a slumber, so deep...

Testimonials

My grandfather and I (his granddaughter and caregiver) are repeat customers. I found your site a few months ago when looking online for an electronic pill dispenser. Since we had success with the dispenser, we decided to purchase the clock as well since my grandfather mixes up day and night. I also have to add that I am grateful as a caregiver for the e-newsletter.
