Caregiver Tips

* Agitation

1. Reduce noise, clutter, or the number of persons in the room.

2. Maintain structure by keeping the same routines. Keep household objects and furniture in the same places. Familiar objects and photographs offer a sense of security and can suggest pleasant memories.

3. Reduce caffeine intake, sugar, and other foods that cause spikes in energy.

4. Try gentle touch, soothing music, reading, or walks to quell agitation. Speak in a reassuring voice. Do not try to restrain the person during a period of agitation.

5. Keep dangerous objects out of reach.

6. Allow the person to do as much for himself as possible—support his independence and ability to care for himself.

7. Acknowledge the confused person’s anger over the loss of control in his life. Tell him you understand his frustration.

8. Distract the person with a snack or an activity. Allow him to forget the troubling incident. Confronting a confused person may increase anxiety.

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

Missing Summer ~ FamilyFriendPoems

the grass so green,
the sun so bright,
life seems a dream,
no worries in sight

tans and tank tops,
laughter and bliss,
each moment passes,
without even a miss

friends and cookouts,
memories and laughs,
good times to remember,
but how long will it last

the grass soon fades,
leaves begin to fall,
school replaces sleepovers,
oh I'll miss it all
