Caregiving Tips:

Visiting The

Doctor

It is important that the person with Alzheimer’s disease receive
regular medical care. Advance planning can help the trip to the
doctor’s office go more smoothly.

1. Try to schedule the appointment for the person’s best time of
day. Also, ask the office staff what time of day the office is least crowded.

2. Let the office staff know in advance that this person may be confused because of Alzheimer’s disease. Ask them for help to make the visit go smoothly.

3. Don’t tell the person about the appointment until the day of the visit or even shortly before it is time to go. Be positive and
matter-of-fact.

4. Bring along something for the person to eat and drink and any materials or activities that he or she enjoys.

5. Have a friend or another family member go with you on the trip, so that one of you can be with the person while the other speaks with the doctor.

6. Take a brief summary listing the person’s medical history,
primary care doctor, and current medications.

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.

Health Day News: Women with a genetic predisposition for Alzheimer's disease face a 10-year window when they have far greater chances of developing the disease than men with similar genetic risks, a new analysis suggests.

MedicalXpress: In the brains of people with Alzheimer's disease, there are abnormal deposits of amyloid beta protein and tau protein, and swarms of activated immune cells. But scientists do not fully understand how these three major factors combine to drive the disease. Now, UNC School of Medicine and National Institutes of Health researchers have untangled the mystery in lab experiments to reveal why one Alzheimer's drug currently in development shows promise and how other therapies might reverse the disease process.

Medical Daily: Dementia poses a huge emotional, social, and psychological challenge to patients, families, and caregivers. The condition affects the memory and thinking skills of an estimated 5.5 million people of all ages in the United States. The exact causes of dementia are complex and still not understood, leading to misconceptions and myths.

New York Post: A daily jab of a bone hormone could one day reverse memory loss offering hope for millions of elderly people who struggle to remember as they age. Boosting levels of osteocalcin, a hormone produced by bone cells, in the blood restores memory loss. Levels of the hormone naturally decline as we age, beginning from the age of 30 in women and 50 in men.

KCRG: Several types of normal memory loss occur as we age, such as forgetting things over time, and bias memories. These are common struggles experienced by everyone at some point, with occurrences often increasing with age.
Long- and short-term memory skills are part of the core cognitive skills the brain uses to think, learn, and perform on a daily basis. That's good news, because we know now that the brain is capable of growing and changing at any age.

Poetry

Welcome Back To School ~ Poetry 4 Kids

“Dear students, the summer has ended.
The school year at last has begun.
But this year is totally different.
I promise we’ll only have fun.

“We won’t study any mathematics,
and recess will last all day long.
Instead of the pledge of allegiance,
we’ll belt out a rock-and-roll song.

“We’ll only play games in the classroom.
You’re welcome to bring in your toys.
It’s okay to run in the hallways.
It’s great if you make lots of noise.

“For homework, you’ll play your Nintendo.
You’ll have to watch lots of T.V.
For field trips we’ll go to the movies
and get lots of candy for free.

“The lunchroom will only serve chocolate
and triple fudge sundaes supreme.”
Yes, that’s what I heard from my teacher
before I woke up from my dream.

Testimonials

We bought this for my mother for Christmas. It has been such a blessing to her. She can easily turn it on and off. We preset the volume which is a really great feature. She loves listening to the 40's music especially while she is reading. This has been great too for other patients. The activity director brings it into socials and everyone so enjoys hearing their kind of music - thank you!
