Caregiver Tips

* Eating Issues

Assessing the mealtime situation can help caregivers identify and resolve problems and understand what is happening from the care recipient’s perspective.

1. Assess the visual aspects of the environment—for example, whether there is poor room lighting, too much glare or too many shadows in the room or on the table, unneeded items or too many food choices on the table, distracting patterns in the place setting, or too little color contrast between the food and the dishes.

2. Assess the sounds and noise in the environment—whether there are distractions coming from people talking, the television or radio, the refrigerator humming loudly, or dogs barking in the background

3. Assess how the food smells, tastes, and feels.

4. Assess how well the person manages the mechanics of eating, from grasping utensils to identifying and picking up food to chewing and swallowing.

5. Assess the emotional climate in the room and how the person interacts with and responds to others in the room.

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

Healthline: Is an abnormal protein the cause of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Huntington’s diseases? A group of researchers is looking into that question. If successful, their research could lead to diagnostic tools and new treatments that could be used on all three of these deadly neurological ailments. The findings from the scientists at Loyola University Chicago were published late last month in the journal Acta Neuropathologica.

Science Daily: A new study heightens concerns over the detrimental short- and long-term impact of airborne iron-rich strongly magnetic combustion-derived nanoparticles present in young urbanites' brains.

CBS Philly: There is no doubt that the incidence of dementia is on the rise in this country. Statistics show that death rates from Alzheimer’s disease in the U.S. increased 55% over the past 20 years with the majority of deaths due to Alzheimer’s disease occurring in a nursing home or long-term care facility. But more patients are being cared for at home.

Poughkeepsie Journal: While the Alzheimer’s Association works to increase federal research funding to find a cure, we also strongly support legislation to help those who struggle with this devastating disease each day. Last year, more than 15 million Americans provided 18.2 billion hours of unpaid care to individuals with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Caring for someone with a chronic, degenerative disease is challenging under the best of circumstances; for most family caregivers, it means taking on a new, unfamiliar role with no training or assistance.

iAdvance Senior Care: The assisted living experience has been put to pen and paper—and song. “Assisted Living: The Musical” captures life in a long-term care facility. The one-act show opens as a couple enter heaven with the suspicion their son pulled the plug to get Dad’s vintage Corvette. Instead of getting mad, they reminisce about their life at Pelican Roost, an active retirement community “with artificial flowers and grab bars in the showers.” Rick Compton and Betsy Bennett have written bawdy jokes and songs about saggy skin, falling in love (literally) and lost dentures that satirize aging and confront ageism. But, there are no mentions of Depends.

Poetry

What Makes A Dad~Father's Day Celebration.Com

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it ... Dad
