Caregiver Tips

* Repetition

Repetition in dementia can be due to memory loss, anxiety or agitation, restlessness or boredom or physical or environmental triggers.

1. Reassure him/her that you are here to help.

2. Take a deep breath and answer his question again, this time in a different way.

3. Write it down or hang up a sign.

4. Evaluate for discomfort, thirst, hunger or the need to use the bathroom.

5. Provide a meaningful activity to do.

6. Don't argue or remind him/her that he/she already asked this question. It never helps.

7. Look for the emotion behind it and use validation.

8. If you're losing your patience, give yourself a timeout. Go into the bathroom, if necessary, so that you can remind yourself of the need for a gentle response.

Consumer Reports: There’s no surefire way to prevent Alzheimer’s disease, which affects 8.8 percent of people over age 65. Still, we’re beginning to understand more about the habits that are associated with a decreased risk of developing the disease, and recent research has suggested that half of all Alzheimer’s cases could potentially be prevented with lifestyle changes, such as controlling high blood pressure, quitting smoking, and exercising.

NPR: Scientists are hoping that a single drug can treat two devastating brain diseases: Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. The drug is nilotinib, which is approved to treat a form of leukemia.

AARP: George Drummond built a Cwtch Room — “cwtch” means “cuddle” in Welsh — for his wife, Elaine, but it was for a particular kind of cuddling. The 1960s-style living room — complete with an old-style rotary table phone and period wallpaper — was built to take Elaine back to a familiar time in her life.

It was also created inside a hospital ward to bring comfort in her final months of dealing with Alzheimer’s disease.

Winston-Salem Journal: B. Smith doesn’t know the day, or the month or the year. Early-onset Alzheimer’s disease has robbed the former restaurateur, model, author and TV host of such luxuries. But her devastating 2013 diagnosis has created a national platform to address the disease that plagues an estimated 5.5 million Americans. “The brain is the most important thing in the body, the least understood and the most taken for granted,” said Smith’s husband, Dan Gasby. “You can replace corneas, you can modify arteries, but the thing above your eyebrows you can’t change.”

Poetry

A Prayer In Spring~Robert Frost~Poem Hunter

Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.

Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.

And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.

For this is love and nothing else is love,
The which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends He will,
But which it only needs that we fulfil.

Testimonials

"My mom and dad are in a facility for elderly needing rehab. I bought the TV Remote for Seniors for them and they love it! The buttons are perfect for them to be able to work the remote - the pre-set channels are a blessing for them.
