Really, can you believe it. Threw out my back dancing with Santa Snoopy! I felt fine all day and evening, had a great
time with family, great food and fun. Oh my, Think maybe it was the eggnog that kept me feeling fine? Well, different story this following morning. Dancing with Santa Snoopy, Joe Cool did go on much into the evening. I am okay with back pain cause it brought a smile to my mom’s face. Spending time with family on this very different special Christmas, is well worth it. Here it is, have a good laugh!
For those of you that do not follow me or know my story, this was the first Christmas since we lost my Dad. Mom has taken the loss very hard and her Dementia is progressing quickly. As a home caregiver, my brother and I are trying our hardest to keep her in the family home as long as possible. Thankfully, building my home based business allows me to still earn a living and care for my mom.
Here are some facts about Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease:
- The number of Americans living with Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease is growing — and growing fast. An estimated 5.4 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer’s disease in 2016. These numbers will escalate rapidly in coming years, as the baby boom generation has begun to reach age 65 and beyond, the age range of greatest risk of Dementia and Alzheimer’s.
- When a person lives with dementia, it makes them vulnerable. It is a disease that affects every part of their life – from when they wake up in the morning until they get into bed at night. It can continue after that – leaving them disoriented and scared if they wake up after a bad dream. People living with dementia continually deal with anxiety, depression, and often withdraw from the outside world, creating self-imposed isolation.
- Doing the things your loved one has always done—no matter how mundane—can be key to their happiness. Changes in physical ability might prevent them from performing activities the way they used to, but by adjusting your approach—how you execute and talk about these activities—your loved one can maintain a sense of independence, accomplishment, and dignity.
- When caring for loved ones, we tend to rely on routines—out of convenience but also with the intention of creating a reassuring, predictable environment for those with physical or mental limitations. But too much insistence on routine, especially when it is not the routine chosen by the individual receiving care, can create boredom and a sense of dependence. Flexibility can bring spontaneity and excitement back into both of your lives.
- Truly listen to—or observe—your loved one for signs that they are feeling lonely or helpless. We may not easily come to the solution as caregivers, so it’s essential to understand what your loved one really wants and needs.
