Caregiver Tips

* Foot Care

It's important for the person with AD to take care of his or her feet. If the person can't, you will need to do it.

1. Soak the person's feet in warm water; wash the feet with a mild soap; and check for cuts, corns, and calluses.

2. Put lotion on the feet so that the skin doesn't become dry and cracked.

3. Cut or file their toenails.

4. Talk to a foot care doctor, called a podiatrist, if the person has diabetes or sores on the feet.

Support Groups

Support groups are regularly scheduled, free gatherings of persons who are providing care for persons with Alzheimer's disease or a related disorder. The primary purpose of these groups is to provide education and knowledge about the disease and caregiver skills. Groups remind caregivers they are not alone, give them a chance to say what they are feeling in a supportive environment, learn new strategies and resources in the community and foster support networks.

Trending In The News

News-Medical: "In my experience, Alzheimer's disease is the most feared disease in people over 65," said David Geldmacher, M.D., "And while it's true that efforts to find a cure for AD have not yet proved successful, much of that fear may be misplaced, since we have learned so much about the disease in the last several decades."

Poetry

Easter and Passover Go Together~PoemsForFree

Easter and Passover go together
Like peas in a pod or birds of a feather.
The Last Supper was an orthodox Seder
(But without the four questions - they came later)
With matzah, not bread, since Jesus kept kosher,
And the story of how we left Egypt with Moshe,
And baruchas and songs and prayers like those you
Now sing as part of being a Jew.
So celebrate both holidays, if you like,
Since both are bright rays of one beautiful light.

New Product On The Block

Item #2081

Paint With Water Duo


This painting duo will bring to life Fairy Gardens and Under the Sea creatures. Fill the brush with water and use it to 'paint' the water across the pages to make the color appear. The pages can then be left to dry which makes the colors disappear - and then you can paint the pictures all over again!
