Caregiver Tips

* Signs Of Caregiver Stress

If you experience any of these signs of stress on a regular basis, make time to talk to your doctor.

1. Denial about the disease and its effect on the person who has been diagnosed. "I know Mom is going to get better."

2. Anger at the person with Alzheimer's, anger that no cure exists, or anger that people don't understand what's happening. "If he asks me that one more time I'll scream!"

3. Anxiety about the future. "What happens when he needs more care than I can provide?"

4. Depression that begins to break your spirit and affects your ability to cope. "I don't care anymore."

5. Exhaustion that makes it nearly impossible to complete necessary daily tasks. "I'm too tired for this."

6. Sleeplessness caused by a never-ending list of concerns. "What if she wanders out of the house or falls and hurts herself?"

7. Health problems that begin to take a mental and physical toll. "I can't remember the last time I felt good."

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

Medical News Today: For years, scientists have contemplated the link between the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease and a metabolic gene called TOMM40, which affects the function of mitochondria, the components inside cells that provide them with energy. Studies have produced mixed results, giving rise to much frustration. However, a new study now finds that a third factor, family history of Alzheimer's, may be the missing link. It shows that having a family history of Alzheimer's disease appears to alter the behavior of TOMM40.

Poetry

Ode To A Doughnut~All Poetry

I see you, but you don't see me.
I smell you, why can't it be.
Your figure so round, skin golden brown.
You must be the best in town.
I bet you're soft, and every bit sweet.
To any man around, a delectable treat.
I am so close, and yet so far.
For you I wished upon a star.
Cant you tell I really need you.
Id be so thankful, and happy too.
You can fulfill my every want.
For you I will always hunt.
Please oh please, you look so good.
Come be with me, you know you should.
I will keep you safe and warm within my gut.
Someone please, give me that doughnut!

Day and Night Clock

Seniors and patients with dementia sometimes have difficulty differentiating between the different times of day. A clock might say 7 o'clock, but the patient might not know whether that is 7 in the morning or 7 in the evening, and Alzheimer’s patients frequently have difficulty reading the numbers on digital clocks. To combat these difficulties, clocks for Alzheimer’s patients have to overcome several potential causes of confusion. A day and night clock can solve that confusion.
