Caregiver Tips

* Washing Hair

Most people like having their hair washed regularly. While many people enjoy the feeling of having their hair washed and feel better when it is done, others don't enjoy it at all. If this is the case, balance the advantages of clean hair against the disadvantages of creating tension between you and the person you are caring for.

1. If you are washing the person's hair yourself, a hand-held shower may work best.

2. Think about using a shampoo which will not cause stinging if it gets into the person's eyes, or using a hair wash shield to prevent water running onto the person's face. Alternative options include a 'no rinse' shampoo that can clean the hair without using water, or dry shampoos.

3. If the person prefers to have their hair washed by a hairdresser, either arrange regular trips to the salon or find a hairdresser who will come to the house. This may be a time when you can have your hair cut too.

4. Be mindful of the person's post-washing routine. Respect their preference for certain haircare products (shampoo, conditioner, hairspray etc), make-up and perfume.

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.

USA Today: Temple University research shows extra-virgin olive oil protects against memory loss, preserves the ability to learn and reduces conditions associated with Alzheimer's disease. Researchers at the college's Lewis Katz School of Medicine found mice with EVOO-enriched diets had better memories and learning abilities compared to the rodents who didn't eat the oil.

Science Daily: The APP gene variant protecting against Alzheimer’s disease significantly decreases plasma beta-amyloid levels in a population cohort. This is a very significant discovery, as many on-going drug trials in the field of Alzheimer's disease focus on decreasing beta-amyloid levels in the brain tissue. According to the study, a 30% life-long decrease in beta-amyloid levels is not associated with detrimental effects on lipid or glucose metabolism, or on any other metabolic factors.

Reader's Digest: While little memory slips are normal, when forgetfulness begins to interfere with everyday life, or symptoms pop up suddenly, it might be time to see a doctor. But research suggests that as many as one in five cases of dementia are triggered by treatable conditions. "Dementia as a diagnosis is not the same as exhibiting a cognitive impairment that mimics dementia," explains Kevin James, founder of Dementia.org.

Fierce Biotech: Neil Woodford has invested in the Big Pharma-backed Dementia Discovery Fund.

Consumer Reports: One day last May, an 87-year-old woman named Edith was rushed to the hospital in a small Texas town after she was found slumped over and unresponsive at the home where she lived with her son and daughter-in-law. The woman, who suffered from dementia, had eaten two liquid laundry detergent packets. She died two days later. Edith’s is one of eight deaths related to ingesting liquid laundry packets in the U.S. between 2012 and early 2017 that have been reported to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Two of the cases were young children and six were adults with dementia.

A Day At The Beach~Scrapbook.Com

A day at the beach
What could be
More fun
Than playing in
The sand
The surf
The sun

Building castles
And rivers
And splashing
In the waves
There's no better
Way to spend
Hot summer days
