Caregiver Tips

* Wandering

1. Make time for regular exercise to minimize restlessness.

2: Consider installing new locks that require a key. Position locks high or low on the door; many people with dementia will not think to look beyond eye level. Keep in mind fire and safety concerns for all family members; the lock(s) must be accessible to others and not take more than a few seconds to open.

3. Try a barrier like a curtain or colored streamer to mask the door. A “stop” sign or “do not enter” sign also may help.

4. Consider installing a home security system or monitoring system designed to keep watch over someone with dementia. Also available are new digital devices that can be worn like a watch or clipped on a belt that use global positioning systems (GPS) or other technology to track a person’s whereabouts or locate him if he wanders off.

5. Put away essential items such as the confused person’s coat, purse or glasses. Some individuals will not go out without certain articles.

6. Have your relative wear an ID bracelet and sew ID labels in their clothes. Always have a current photo available should you need to report your loved one missing. Consider leaving a copy on file at the police department or registering the person with the Alzheimer’s Association Safe Return program or other emergency tracking service.

7. Tell neighbors about your relative’s wandering behavior and make sure they have your phone number.

Snowflake Kisses~Family Friend Poems

Upon the earth the snow kisses
Glittering flakes drop as the ice glistens
My soul has awaken and now my heart listens
In my mind your voice whispers
When I close my eyes at night I dream of you
When I awake to the morning dew I think of you
Somehow I feel in your arms is where I belong
I've waited for someone like you for so long
Now my heart beats with a happy rhyme
Couldn't have asked for a better Valentine

Testimonials

I came across your store just looking for anything that would make my mother's life easier. In the morning she thinks it's evening and the evening think's its morning. I purchased the Day & Night Clock and already I see her looking out the window and then back to the clock and she did not ask me if it was morning or evening. Seems to be helping already. Thank you so much for such a wonderful product.
