Caregiver Tips

* Summer And Alzheimer's

The pleasures of summer include longer, warmer and sunnier days, celebrations with family and friends, and backyard BBQs. For the person caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease, summer can also bring with it additional safety challenges. By taking a few minutes to review the following safety tips, families can enjoy a fulfilling and pleasant summertime together.

1. Limit your loved one’s exposure to the sun. Place lawn chairs in shaded areas. Stay indoors between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. when the suns rays are the strongest. Encourage your loved one to wear a hat and sunglasses.

2. Remind your loved one with Alzheimer’s disease to apply and reapply sunscreen when outside for long periods of time.

3. During the summer it is especially important to drink lots of fluids. Keep a cool glass of water within arm’s reach as a reminder. Add a flavor to the water to make is more interesting and tasty. Provide non-alcoholic beer or lemonade for backyard BBQs.

4. Decision making may be increasingly difficult so dressing appropriately for hot days can be hard. Put away winter clothes, boots, gloves and hats, and replace them with just one or two choices of shirts, pants or shorts/skirts, a hat with a large brim and a light jacket or sweater.

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.

Poetry

Summer Sun~Poem Hunter

Great is the sun, and wide he goes
Through empty heaven with repose;
And in the blue and glowing days
More thick than rain he showers his rays.

Though closer still the blinds we pull
To keep the shady parlour cool,
Yet he will find a chink or two
To slip his golden fingers through.

The dusty attic spider-clad
He, through the keyhole, maketh glad;
And through the broken edge of tiles
Into the laddered hay-loft smiles.

Meantime his golden face around
He bares to all the garden ground,
And sheds a warm and glittering look
Among the ivy's inmost nook.

Above the hills, along the blue,
Round the bright air with footing true,
To please the child, to paint the rose,
The gardener of the World, he goes.

Item #0390

Bed Exit Alarm

The SAFENBED™ Bed Exit Alarm is simple to use. A bed (or chair) pad is plugged into the unit and when the patient gets off of that pad, the unit starts alerting loudly. A timer delay can be switched on so it won't alert for 2 seconds, 5 minutes, 20 minutes, or an hour. If the patient gets back on the pad before the time is up, the timer is cancelled. We think it is most useful for couples sharing a bed, or a caregiver who sleeps either in the same room or the room next door.
