Caregiver Tips

* Delusions

1. If a person with Alzheimer's is having severe delusions and there is a fear of self harm or caregiver harm, or if the delusion or hallucination is extremely troubling to the person, it's important to have a medical evaluation to determine if medication is needed.

2. Don't take offense-listen to what is troubling the person, and try to understand that reality. Then be reassuring, and let the person know you care.

3. Don't argue or try to convince-allow the individual to express ideas. Acknowledge his or her opinions.

4. Offer a simple answer-share your thoughts with the individual, but keep it simple. Don't overwhelm the person with lengthy explanations or reasons.

5. Switch the focus to another activity-engage the individual in an activity, or ask for help with a chore.

6. Duplicate any lost items-if the person is often searching for a specific item, have several available. For example, if the individual is always looking for his or her wallet, purchase two of the same kind.

To Be A Real Leprechaun~The Holiday Spot

To be a real leprechaun,
and have a pot of gold.
To be able to enjoy the music,
and not be left out in the cold.
Their life of enjoyment,
can be seen in their face.
To be a living leprechaun,
is something I can embrace.
Their little deeds of mischief,
and the matching of their wit.
And a toast of Irish whiskey,
to make this seem legit.
I'd love to be a leprechaun,
So life can be a treasure.
I know that I would love this,
beyond any kind of measure.
Dancing in the moonlight,
and hiding in the flowers.
The weeks are so carefree,
that days seem like hours.
From a thousand shades of green,
that's called the emerald isle.
I know the life of merryment,
is really quite worthwhile.
To be a living leprechaun,
is something of what I dream.
For if I really was one,
I would be held in high esteem.

Item # 0510 Someone To Love Baby Dolls >

Therapy dolls have a remarkable effect on women (and men) in the middle and later stages of Alzheimer's disease. They are calming, soothing and bring the person back to a time in their life when they felt useful and had a sense of purpose; when caring for a young family member was the #1 priority.

Testimonials

"My mother has very advanced stage Alzheimer's. She recently grew fond of an old doll that used to belong to my daughter. This got me researching on Doll Therapy and I came across the Alzheimer's Store. I wanted my mother to have a doll that felt more real. When Baby Oliver was delivered I knew this was exactly what I had been looking for. The weight, agility and details gave it that special touch and warmth which the regular doll didn't have. We have recently introduced Oliver to my mother and she took an instant liking to him - having a baby to care for does keep her calmer, happy and occupied. I also want to mention how helpful the staff has been. We had an issue with UPS and contacted the store via phone and they were very helpful and prompt in getting the problem sorted! Very caring and helpful staff!!!"
