Caregiving Tips:

Stay Active

Staying active can help the person with dementia maintain a consistent 'sense of self' that continues with them through the course of the disease. Consider the person's every day routines, hobbies and interests, previous employment, level of education and activities most enjoyed. These will tell you what the person considers important and their interests.

1. Continue every day tasks to maintain sense of self.

2. Focus on unique strengths and interests.

3. Modify activities to match abilities.

4. Adapt activiites over time.

5. Plan for rest periods.

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.

Testimonials

This is an interesting product. My mother likes the bright colors. Because they are made of wood, they are a bit heavy. Mom has severe arthritis and though her hands still work fairly well, it is a bit hard for her to pick them up because of the overall weight. She does use them while they are sitting on the table.
