"carol cinci" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia

"Was in the beginning stages of Alzheimer's now. I don't know a lot about her mom. I'm just beginning to learn a might. We question that stage as far as the beginning stage based on some of the things. She's telling me about mom. It may be moms a little further along than maybe the beginning of her disease but nonetheless there are things that we look for specifically in the beginning stages than we see things that progress into the mid mid stages as I call them and then in the light stages so the Alzheimer's Association divided up into several different categories. I just do beginning middle in early mid late three categories. Because it's easier for this. Little Brian to keep track of and so realizing the kind of dementia have are your loved. One has and where they are in that journey if they're just beginning the middle or in their late stages that will help answer the question of potentially. How long will they live? But as you know there's so many things that can happen that can change on jeopardy but what I wanted her to know more specifically than anything is that understanding the kind of dementia mom has understanding what to expect what those stages look like having that base knowledge will make the journey easier.

Call me tomorrow when your wife for MOM and We'll get into more detail but understanding that those various stages will definitely have a dramatic impact on the caregiving experience because it has an impact on who they are at that time what they can do and what they can't do and what they can do in the early stages of the disease is definitely greater than what they can do in the later stages of the disease so for our next several shows for next three shows.

"Well Hello Everybody and Carol Hal which let's talk dementia. You've chosen join me as I sit here. Recording this episode. I realize I've got readers around my neck in readers on my head. I've got readers all over my house yet. Do you think I know where they are when I need them? No and then I take my readers off and I can't find my regular classes. Do you guys have these problems? Will today I wanted to share with you. A question that came from Janna Smith Genesis. Caring for her Step Dad who was a hundred years. Old Amazing isn't it? I have a client who is one hundred seven I believe and she a couple years ago told me she was going to get married. I'm like hey go for it. Who Am I decided right? She did not get married but jam. This is asking about when it is time to move from traditional underclothing undergarments and in this case on boxer shorts for her Stepdad. In for changed him into depends right when it's time to make that move and and she was expressing her frustration because her dad. Whose name is John Utterly. That's yes John He Urinate Liver. Everything in all the woman does is wash because she washes underwear. She washes closing. She washes bedding. She washes sheets pillows. She washes chair covers. She washes stuff all the time and her big frustration that brought about the email and a phone conversation. We had came win in the midst of all of this washing and drying her dryer dies. You know sometimes you just reach your point. Don't you think it's interesting? How in our lives the great big things? We seem to manage. It's the minutia of the day. The little things that sometimes. We'll just put US ride over the edge in for her. She kind of reached that when she called me and she said how do I know when it is time for him to start using Thebenz and I said well the answer is now thank you for Calling Goodbye. And she just laughed. I'm like this. Is You know no big deal. Just make it happen. I remember when it was time for my momma to move from her underwear and panties into depends pull up type products. I was really concerned about that. Just like Janice was because my mama had her underwear sent from a store in Washington state and my mom live in South Carolina. She loved her unware issue. Talk about how the most wonderful thing she ever worn. Not Oh if we take these away in wicked Mama these pull ups which aren't pretty. They're just not now. They're better than they used to be. You can even get them in colors. But they're still not my mom's comfortable underwear. She is going to not be happy. Well I'm a couldn't care less. She just transitioned ride into as if it was nothing. I'm still sort of shocked about that. So I told Janice this very well may be the same type thing with John. I did read the mand her going ahead and removing from the house all of his boxer shorts two reasons for that one. John Won't find them and put them on into Janice won't just give up is just forget it. You can wear whatever you out to him. Frustrated with you because they're going to have any kind of like when you were potty training your kids you know you got rid of all the diapers so they had to use the bathroom in you had met help them learn. Because you've already got rid of all the diapers understand that. But I told her I town it's GonNa be as big of a deal as she thought whereas you're imagining it to be and you know what she since written feedback and he was fine with whatever. I can do that. That's fine and it does cut down on the number of loads of laundry. The poor woman cut do all the time and we have to think about things like that. I told her also consider the blue pads that you can put under them. While they're lying on the bed you can either put it directly underneath them in their absorb it or underneath the sheet to hold it in place in most places do that. I think directly underneath the sheet where it separates the sheep from the mattress. So then the only thing that you might have to wash would be the fitted sheet. You can get those blue pads are disposable where you can get the conduct you wash then again. Backed Washington bunch of stuff. That's not so much fun. Will they not do recommend is if you're buying pull ups for a male by the kind made for men because where the urine comes out in a male is in a different position than it is on a female like you didn't know this already but if you're going to buy who loves you might not think about it so with the mail that sticker up near the Front for female. It's thicker down near the bat because of where you're GONNA come out. It's just GonNa work better so by mail products for males female products for females. Neither the to show mix so she did that. You also wrote me that. She had another item. She wanted discusses in Emma's like happy to read it and she said John has a boo boo under his nose above his lip there that he picks at all the time and she cannot get it to heal up. She tried putting a band aid on it. She's tried doing everything she knows reminding John. Quit picking adequate picking at it. But you know she doesn't keep eyeballs on John. Twenty four seven in just as soon as she's not looking you know what he does sure enough. Yep He takes the scam right off of that boo boo and it's not very attractive. And it's kind of embarrassing. We go out in public. But what are you gonNA do about it? Well my bought for her. Is this get it checked? Let's make sure we don't have some ambition going on there that there is not something that we need to be treating that it needs some kind of medication or some action taken and if everything is okay they may be just back off a little bit. In every time John goes to pick on it remind him not to. But don't stop there. Take that next sentence to be something like Hey John how about we do this instead. So we've taken John's hands from picking on this thing on his lip. Now we're GONNA take those hands and do something different to keep his hands busy and take his mind off of his lip. She's not able to do that every time. And you have to recognize that you just have certain capabilities within yourself. There are things we can change in our world. There are things we cannot change. Are we learning that Moore so right now in the midst of Rana virus than ever before and it's true in caregiving so we have to kind of take a chill pill sometimes and choose our battles and so that was my advice from his? Janice and I would love to hear from you. I am offering free thirty minute. Phone consultations they don't cost you don a promise you they don't cost you a dime you just need to go to. Let's Talk Dementia Dot. Org and Click on calendar events. I have put up some dates for the next week or two and you can click on the day and the time that works for you and you have instructions there to email me your phone number and I will call you at the day. On the day time you selected and we'll talk about what's going on in your caregiving world. Maybe you just want to share your frustration or maybe you have a question or maybe have a story just calm love having the conversations and Hey. I make that interaction too because you know what? I'm quarantined to. My husband always tired of looking at me. Well I want you guys to be very safe and I want you to win you what I want when you think about. You need to go out for something to think about this. Do I need it enough to risk my life than others? I don't care what it is unless it's medication and you can have that liver. Don't go out just don't you don't meet whatever it is that bad. My daughter and I had decided that for Easter Sunday. Since we can't be together she would cook a meal and I would cook too cook part of the meal. How could the other parts million we would leave it on each other's doorsteps so we have a regular Easter dinner? That meant I needed to go to the grocery store public today or tomorrow and get a ham which. Ps I do not eat but my son in law my daughter and my husband likes and I was going to go out just for the ham wasn't is just dumb. That is we do not need a ham bad enough to risk getting corona virus. Dying no especially for this girl. Don't even eat me so what I'm thinking about doing is placing my my monthly order groceries through the delivery service. I use INSTA- cart and if they have a Ham. I'll get the Ham if they don't have the ham carols not going to go out and buy one. I'm just not we don't do that. Spe- say don't spread what you've got and don't be in a place where you might get what someone else has in. Let's stop this whole situation in our world by being responsible all right. I hope you smile a lot. Hope in the process of all that's going on in our world you remember. You will come through this. We all will come through this in. Life's GONNA be different.

"Welcome to let's talk dementia. Here is your host bestselling author Carol. Caregivers this is Carol. Let's talk dementia. Well today I met the sewing machine. I got to thinking about dementia in something. That's been a an important part of my world because my mama made everything us. Three girls war all our clothes. I mean all our clothes. She made she even made my dad's leisure suits. Do you guys remember leisure suits from the nineteen seventies where she made him with that double stitching on the outside? She made our joy reason covered our furniture. And well. I got a little bit of that talent but boy nothing like what she could do. But today I am covering Or recovering some pillaged from my law. That just got. They didn't look so that in it made me think about all the times I would sit and watch moms sub and she would teach me how to so so a little bit going beard. You're listening to this year. That noise in the background. That's the sewing machines which are not static on telephone in. Mamma taught me how the so and I'm glad I think about her lot now is I'm working on this but there came a point. My Mama's journey of dementia that sewing frustrated her and so I would be there to help her on the frustration that she would experience and she could keep going in. We would accomplish projects the last project moment I ever made together was we made twenty eight poodle. Skirts for one of the choirs that I worked with I conducted choirs for those with dimension. We were doing a sock hop in all those ladies. Well they need a poodle skirts. And Mama helped me and I say helped. Kind of loosely. Because he kinda was more in the room than anything in this kind of point. Mama got to the point. She couldn't read the machine she could not remember the processes for threading sewing machine. She could not remember how to make the bobbin thread. Come up on top on on platform here to begin sewing. Mama couldn't do that anymore. She couldn't remember how to turn a pattern to make it fit on the fabric but if I decided to do a sewing project and acted as if Mama steel could do it and got her Bob to whatever level she could do so much enjoyed it and just hung out together and instead of me going. Mama's moved also at myself. I'll go no mom. I want you to stand over. May and watch me while I do this so I can learn when folks knew how to do what I was doing. Okay I I really didn't have to have mama there. But it sure was more fun having her there and then giving her the sense of having accomplished helping with the project. That was pretty big for Momma then. Every time we looked at the poodle skirts. Aca Go mom of you and I made those together. We did a good job did and we did to a good job. I really did get very sick of sewing on poodles. I'm GonNa tell you that with the Courting you know for the caller that came up to the waistband. Thought we'd never get all those silly skirts done. But it was a fun time with our loved ones with dementia. We know that they start. Losing INTEREST. In hobbies we see that early on in their dementia. Journey is sometimes even before they're ever diagnosed. One of the symptoms is mom's not participating E. N. filling the blind. Maybe it's playing cards with their friends. may be it sewing like with Mama. Maybe it's cooking. I don't know what was her hobby. What was the thing? She likes most ADO in. If you notice a change in that that they're clicking away from it it might be time to stop and go. Why are they pulling away from it in? Is it dementia meaning that they cannot process the thaw to make that activity happened any longer? And that's what happened with Mama but she would get excited about assisting me in different things and you know it was quite amazing every once in a while in that process of making all those listed poodle skirts mama would come up with something that would really help. And I'd be like certainly wasn't expecting that for Momma but theory was and she was able to help it was so meaningful for her and for me too but break your people into that experience if they liked to cook bring them into the kitchen and allow them to do the things they can do. I remember the last time was in the kitchen with me was in her group home which is just a home where six people lived. It was wonderful and so it had a kitchen just a house in a neighborhood of course education and I cooked on. Sundays is just something I've done for years and cooked for everybody else Sunday so I asked the staff. Can I cook on Sunday so I yeah so mama would get in there and she would help me I remember one time we were having Kiwok patties and I buy them already made their quite good from all of you have not had them. I recommend you do. Mama could not handle that whole process. Moma here is the baking pan. Here's the bots. Will you open the boxes up for me? As we were cooking for six people took several boxes and she was able to open the box or the boxes and took a little effort for Momma. She wasn't super quick at it but it got her ball inside. She opened the boxes in the signal. Here the scissors because it was still okay from scissors. Cut The plastic that holds these keen walkers out could cut it away and get the burgers out and she did now Mama. Could you put the Burgers on the baking sheet? And she did some was involved. Now I will tell you mom very much did not mind at all. Having Somebody Cook for her so she wasn't really thrilled about helping to cook so after she got that done. She's like I'll go sit in my chair. You can finish this project like Okay Mama. Whatever makes you happy and she did. She did not help any more. But get your folks involved whatever degree they can help in. Change your definition of help if you want to have something to allow them to empty the dishwasher. Get the knives out ahead of time. So nobody's GonNa get hurt and then don't get freaked out when the plates are where the Cup should be in the cups or where the dish the casserole dishes should be. Just let her go in and straighten it out because what you did was you. Allow them to participate in life to the -bility they were capable of. Doing you celebrate it and you went on with it because I got used for you. You don't do things right every down anyway. So don't expect them to go incorrect. Which you think needs to be corrected when they're not looking while they're taking a nap. Go in and fix whatever you think just has to be fixed. And if it doesn't have to be fixed just let alone this my thought for today. Now I got three pillars to make in their coming out. What pretty I will show you the Fabric here may get this that you can take a look. I've got one finished but have already could it on the late night and this is pretty fabric for one side in the NBA. Coordinating Fabric. Come back and I'm just excited about him. I'm here quarantine because this is the project I can do. You guys have a Great Day. Safe DAY BE HEALTHY. See on the next episode of.

"Hi Caregivers this let's talk dementia. And I'm here Ohio. Thank you for joining me here on yet. Another Day of being quarantined with Cova. Nineteen virus in our world is just crazy stuff isn't it? I had said the other day that if they close my pool I was not going to be a happy girl. They closed my pool. They did so on Friday and as I record this today is Monday and I'm just a little bit unhappy about that pool being closed but I am getting out and walking and doing those things to help. Keep me sane because you gotTa Take Care of Yourself? I'm practicing some good breathing because as I talked to you about in one of the episodes how when we're stressed we build up a lot of cortisol our body releases cortisol in. That's not necessarily unless we're running from bears and we're not running from bears today. Are we some breathing in? I'm trying to do things to keep my brain happy well. I hope that you are finding some time to relax and to take care of yourself I can tell you that In Our world. We're praying for everybody. I don't think there is an individual on the planet. That's not affected some way and I hope that some way is not because you have the virus or you know someone who has it a hope. Maybe it's just that maybe you can't get toilet paper. I don't know why we can't get toilet paper. That's just weird But we are praying for each person that's affected in whatever way and that this virus will just miraculously leave our world. It just takes a little bit of faith and I'm thinking My faith must be really really little. But I'm that's what I'm praying for is that it would just miraculously leave. Our world without explanation did just numbers which is ceasing. The number start going down release really drastically small. The number of people diagnosed liking get back to normal but I know it's making your caregiving journey more difficult. I just had a phone call with memory care department where my brother-in-law lives Uncle Ernie? It was kind of funny. They said he is so fun to be around because he's teaches entertainments with all his life stories. And I said Nora. None of those stories are true. She said they're not I said. Ernie has not told a story in probably a couple of months that the information that story happened or was even close to being accurate. She said well. We don't know what he's just listened. So you gotta take the good where you can get it right today. I want to answer a question. That a viewer or listener wrote in Katherine and she wanted to know was normal for folks in late stage Alzheimer's to lose their ability to have conversation or to Speak and that is normal. It does happen and The reason is Well first of all languages stored in lots of parts of the brain but the left. Temporal lobe is where the bulk of languages stored and we lose it in Alzheimer's left and language and lose all start with AOL. You can remember that the right temporal lobe is where rhythm is in it. Remains RIGHT RHYTHM REMAIN? Start with are the right. Temporal lobe is least affected by Alzheimer's than any other part of the brain so it is more intact works better than the rest of the brain so we want to bring to our people those things they can do using the part of the brain. That's more intact and that's why you go into a good memory care community. There'll be a lot of musical type activities going on because music resonates they can remember all the words to Jim Reeves singing. Put your sweet lips a little closer to the funk. That's my mom's favorite song or whatever their song is they can remember that but when they get through. They can't say that was really fun because that's coming from the left temporal lobe. And they've lost the ability to put words together to make sentences gathering a nail in a verb a subject inappropriate. They can't put that together to make a complete sentence to get their words out. Or they'll start a sentence in those. I I WANNA go to the to the to the to the to the to the to the to new goody goody goody goody getting again getting it ago and you're like what I'll I heard I wanna go to deter and gotta go. No words just sounds and they'll hit on a syllable in stay there but Dipping in they're trying to say a word but they can't they can't get the whole word out and you're left trying to figure out what in the world they're trying to say or they have what is called. Word Salad if you picture a great big vegetable salad plant based salad note. No meat on this plant plant based eating girl and you want. You've got cucumbers tomatoes in you got celery and you've got Lettuce you've got migraines because that's my new. Things been adding micro grains everything and you decide. You'RE GONNA put your foregin there and you're only gonNA get a piece of cucumber with. That might be very hard to do right because it's word salad. Everything's mixed up in there in so they reach for a word but instead they get some other word or former thereof or some combination of several words in that how it comes out and we're left trying to figure out what they were trying to say I think in my book used the word potential I won't Arto whereas my And you'd be happy to let them have peduto a help them onto peduto. If only you knew what was so your response to them could be something like well. Dad We need to find your peduto. You're right it is missing. Now tell me I forget. How do you use a Dardel? What would you do with the Dardel? 'cause I I forget I haven't had a long time. Hopefully they will be able to answer in some way like well. You you put it on your own on your on your shoulder and and and you and you and you a and and you're going what what what what. But you're watching their hand signals. And if they're taking their hands down the center of their chest like they might be on buttoning or buttoning or they're trying to put their arms through something than maybe paternalism jacket. Maybe it's glasses. Maybe who knows what but you watch how. They're using their hands. What they're acting out to see. Can you figure out what a portal is but you be accepting of the fact that yes? They need their paternal. And yes you help them find the Puerto and hopefully lead him into questions. That will help you figure what a portal is dad. What color is your bottle? Well it's Bright Pink and you know. Dad Only has one bright pink thing than going to narrow it. Down Right Mom What do you when you use your poodle? Where do you use it? Do you take it with you somewhere. And she might say shopping might get one word out shopping mom shopping baby mom talking about her purse or maybe they put their hand through their hair in the dirt. Eliza coat comb method. I don't know where code came from would not be coat going to air would be come. See Word Salad. You reach for one word and you get another. We all do but it is very common for folks with late stage. Alzheimer's to lose the ability to put sentences together. My favorite thing about my Mama when I think back about her last six months of her life was the day she went on hospice was the day. She said the last complete sentenced to me now. She said a few cents afterwards but never directly to me and hospice Employees had just left. I signed all the paperwork. Mom was sitting in her recliner group. Home she lived in in the living room. I was in the dining room and she saw me and she goes Buki. Get your ass over here. That was Mama's last complete Senate. She was never able to put full sentences together after that except when she was having visions of heaven and she did have visions of Heaven and she said Oh. And I said why Momma she says it is so beautiful. I'm going to love living here. But she didn't say to me she was saying it as just a response to what she was saying. That was one of those wonderful amazing reckless moments in my life. So at some point start putting sentences back together. Y'All in that happens when the Lord starts to call him home in that's what happened for mom and It's interesting but we lose that ability to put words together when Alzheimer's is present. Y'All just learned to deal with that you be accepting of. It helped them to give them clues. Help them to give you clues and help to guide them towards those clues just be accepting of it because it's frustrating for them to eerily as they have something they wanna tell. You can't do it. Kinda imagine what it would feel like if you were in another country see. I'm good southern girl. I haven't traveled very much. So if you take me to Japan I'm not GonNa understand a word anybody saying and they're probably not going to understand my southern English so we have a communication problem is frustrating on both sides. It is pure folks with dementia too. So breathe take big. Breath helped him to potentially respond to questions. You might ask or act out. Promised to help them to speak kind. What's important and in this world as we're dealing with with Kovin be nice to other people. I've gone on facebook. I'm only posting my show on facebook and I'm reading nothing but I know people are just arguing left and right on facebook. Stop doing that. Y'All be nice. It's a whole lot better world when we've decided be nice. We all have enough stress. Do I hear an amen on that? One blessings smiles. See You on the next episode of. Let's talk dementia.

"Not processing those thoughts. So we're GONNA take that little bit of beauty That comes from the situation that we are all in in thankful for it but that does still leave the guilt that we feel the sadness we feel from not to see our loved ones. If I knew my mom was in a memory care community and I could not go see her and she was there. It would just drive me crazy all it really would. I am admitting that to you because I wanNA see my mom every day and I would be so lonely and sad not being able to see her now. Know How that feels because they can't go see. Mama 'cause she's in heaven and so it's a similar feeling. Yeah that you're missing your love one. But the guilt from that is your responsibility. Guilt comes from within if someone else's placing guilt on you. You've got to accept that guilt if they're trying to place guilt on you and you don't accept it then. They didn't win. Don't then don't hang around with those Taymor because they're not nice but don't accept that guilt. You're doing everything you can do and I know you are because you listen to this podcast or you watch the videos. You bought my books. You're reading your educating yourself. You're doing everything you can for your loved ones. That's what you're supposed to do. You know God calls us to do what we can do. He doesn't expect us to do what we can't do. I've always heard who guide calls. He equips now. He may not equip you before he calls you but when he calls you he will equip you and you've been called to caregiver and he will equip you to do that and right now your job is to make sure they're safe by keeping them in that quarantined environment which is a great thing in taking care of you. Let go of that guilt. It's not helping you in any way and it's hurting yourself and your loved one who nature here because you want to be as well as healthy these fossils win this quarantine lifted in light goes back to normal oath please. Lord let that be soon then you can go visit them and be at your best. Don't accept that guilt. Just just don't do it and the other thing you've got to remember is in the process of all of this all of this downtime where all having use it in ways that are beneficial for your health. Maybe it'll give you more time to get outside and go for a walk or or to ride your bike. That's what I like to do in a like to go to the pool. I'm just praying. Oh please Lord that they don't close my pool. I will be very sad about that but time to read time to talk time to saying time to write letters you got. I got a letter today for my friend was T. and brought back written in Green Eight. That is the hardest thing to read because it's in this light green ink but an actual handwritten letter who does that anymore will misstated and it was fun for me to get that to get that letter today. Take the time and write a letter to somebody not an email. We get those all the time week norm actually write a letter and drop it in the mailbox do things that are time consuming that you never have time to do now. You have time to do but don't use this time to lay upon yourself and accept guilt for not. Doing which can't do that's not smart so let's not do that. That would make as much sense as Being guilty for not being able to fly to the moon. You can't find them. You can't do that. I'll post above it so feeling guilty because you can't do it well that's not smart you also cannot visit your loved one. They're not going to let you in the building.

"carol cinci" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia

"Welcome to let's talk dementia. Here is your host bestselling author Carol. Caregivers I'm Carol Hal. In this is let's talk dementia well in our last episode. I told you that we would talk about wellbeing naked. I didn't get into it in that episode. So we're going to cover that today. Well be naked is something we were experiencing the minute we were born right. We all came into this world without close and Somebody hit us on the bottom and we cried and life went on But as we age a little bit we soon discover that running around naked is just not accepted impolite company but it does happen with dementia. So let's talk about that a little bit and some stories and how you handle it. What your responses might be. We you got to recall that our folks with advancing dementia Are Losing the ability to know what is appropriate was inappropriate now that ability is is formed inhaled right here in the frontal lobe. That is the last part of the brain to develop on a male on a female it has fully developed somewhere around the age of eighteen for a male. It's not until the age of twenty one. Now that would explain. Why more teenage boys in early twenty year old boys get in trouble then their counterpart females. Why a twenty one year old or twenty year old or nineteen year old might drive down the main drag eighty five miles an hour and a female of the same age is going to be the speed limit. It truly is. This part of their brain is not fully developed for them to say you know if I drive. Eighty five miles an hour down that road One probably GONNA get caught by the police to could hurt somebody and in my daddy finds out. He's going to be my right. They're gonNA think that. The twenty the females go. Well that would just be done because the speed limit is forty five. I'm going to do the speed limit. We always knew that women think better than men Bentley. Yeah pretty much. That's my theory on it. But it is that that part of the brain not fully developed. So that's also the part of the brain that helps you know What is socially acceptable? And what is socially unacceptable things that you can say to your husband that you would never say to your priest or rabbi a preacher Jokes that you could tell that. Maybe we probably shouldn't be telling him anyway but you would certainly not tell him in Sunday school. That's all right here in the frontal lobe told you about frontal temporal lobe dementia. That is the disease that affects the Frontal Lobe. Temporal Lobe and those folks have very few filters left to know what's appropriate inappropriate. But because part of the brain is so drastically affected now with Alzheimer's that wryness effected also not as much as with frontal temporal lobe dementia. But still it is affected so we lose our filters I can tell you my sweet. Mama had a certain word. She liked to say a whole lot and She had to up and she liked to say that she never have said one of them. She would never have said but she said it and it landed on me not so well the one word up at you and guess what it is but that was not mama. Her filter was gone and she was losing that ability to. That's not a word that we should say. Although which she said she would give every time. I don't know the woman was funny But also knowing what to do not just what disabled what to do that's appropriate and inappropriate has taken all your clothes off and running through the house right. You just don't do that if there's other people in the house But our folks with dementia might not think I should put on road before I go out stark naked into the living room where there's company it makes me think of a story that I've told before you'll hear it again here but A friend of ours that his dad had dementia and I don't know what comedy had dementia. And he had gotten a shower and he got out of the shower and the sign said to the dad. Or grandad whichever. Now don't go out to we got all your private parts. Covered up in the sun went. I don't know to the closet or something to get a towel. And before he could turn around dad had walked out in he covered his private so he thought and he said Paul. I've covered up my privates and he had laid a wash cloth across his chest in the rest of glory. Just showing right. And they're said balls wive and children in their granddaddy with everything show except with a little bit. He had covered with the wash call where he had covered his quote privates on his chest. Yes so sometimes figuring out what's appropriate inappropriate to problem. But that's why that part of the brain is drastically affected so think about that McCain another reason votes might take their clothes off their itchy. They're uncomfortable remember. Have told you the fat pads disappear and they become less than the nerve endings are more sensitive. Because they're more topical and scratchy. Close just feel really Yucky and just gotTa get it off. This stuff feel good that is thrown away or donated pieces of clothing that were really pretty but they drove you. Bumpers crazy when you wore them in so for our folks with dimension. That is more of a problem. That's why you gotta be aware of soft clothing. Are you putting off closing on folks? I know a lady that after lunch in her last probably two months of life in her memory care community she would stand up finished Pusher Chair in stand up and start taking her clothes off starting with her pants in her depends. She pulled them all down in one swift movement. It was quite amazing. How agile she could be at that point in there. She would stay and she did it every day. I think what was going on this lady now. I don't know wish us full. She was tired. She was ready for a change so she did that. It was just a reaction to what was going on in herself. She didn't do it to draw attention to herself. Believe me not this woman. It wouldn't have been the case now. She did draw attention to herself. In fact the other residents would say baddies naked again. Betty's naked and it got to finally the staff we go okay. She's about finish. Let's help get her up. Get her to Aruba's we don't she's going to start streaking but why did she do it was? She didn't do it to irritate staff or to draw attention to herself. Her brings damaged and it was being drastically damaged day by day. She was in late stage. Alzheimer's you could not expect her to do. What is appropriate or acceptable because that frontal lobe of her Branko very I just miss my hair pointing to my or hidden But anyway accuracy that was Miss Betty. She she was a trip and I did love her in enjoy being with her but she would take her clothes off minute so I know a husband and wife who used to sing in assisted living and They Sang Gospel Music. He played the guitar. She saying. They were saying the song I saw the light I saw the light. I saw the light. No more in darkness but anyway they were saying in that and Up comes this may just running through the dining room where they were saying stark naked. Not a piece of anything on. The man blamed the guitar saying instead of saying and I saw the moon to write because he was being moved by. This Guy Looks Kinda funny but the guy did not do it for attention. He did not so getting angry at our folks because they're taking all their clothes off is just not to any good. They're not doing it for any reason. Besides either they can't think it through their closer uncomfortable. It's just something that's hey wonder what would happen if I took that off or via undone of took my pants off what would happen. They're not thinking it through so not. Don't be upset Upset with him which you say instead is well. It does look like you just took your panties off. You're standing hair without shirt on. Maybe we should go find your shirt. Would you like to have an APP? You just finished lunch. Maybe it's time for goodness. Let's just go on Dab your woman in let's get you rating. Let you take a nap. Maybe they're hungry. Maybe that's why they've done it. Maybe there that's the only way they can get attention. There's something going on. They're not happy about they. Take their clothes off. Maybe they're hungry. Maybe they're bored. Maybe they're in pain. Maybe they're thirsty. They are reacting to something. Your reaction needs to be able by. Golly you got your pants off now is there something I can do. Make you feel better would you? Would you like something to drink? Are a little bit hunger July some popcorn or would you like a nap. These kinds inquisitive questions that you can ask them to potentially sue. They can respond that. Yom Thirsty and they may not be able to respond and if they can't respond then you still want to kindly take him into the room. Get them redress kindly and maybe offer them something to drink. See if they joined it ask him. They need to go the bathroom in find out if that's what it was. There's generally something going on there responding to in if they're just uncomfortable they won't take off their clothes just uncomfortable and we'll take off their clothes. Just deal it you get them to bed. Let him lay down become to any no. We don't have to have close on time anyway if we're in the bed in we're comfortable naked. They may have slept naked every night of their wife in here. You WANNA put him to bed with their depends on in their pajamas. Top on their Pajama bottom on in socks on. And if they don't want they don't want it S. My Dad used to say one hundred years from now. Nobody's connote the difference. It's not gonNa Affect Life that much.

"carol cinci" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia

"We're going to keep going with acronyms and talk about. Pb A which is pseudo bar affect. Pseudo Barr thank this order. You often hear it called so it came to my mind today. I had a phone call from client. She brought my attention that her dad has. Pba and it's not something. I hear a lot and I thought. Gosh we haven't talked about that in quite some time you can reach me to talk about what's going on in your world and my email address is carol at. Let's Talk Dementia Dot. Org and if you give your memorial call you back. It's very simple well. This gentleman has PBA pseudo Bowl Bar Affect in this is a challenging disorder that can be difficult to differentiate from the symptoms of other neurological diseases With which is associated. So what is? Pba will simply put PBA is the inability to control laughter in crying so we will find individuals who cry for a reason that we have no clue or they laugh at inappropriate times or for things that again. We don't know why they're laughing about. They may laugh when they cry. They cry when they should laugh in. They may cry or laugh for no logical reason at all. There's no stimuli in their world in their environment going on at that time that would make sense. Oh Dad's crying because feeling blank. It's not a normal response to live situation that brings about this crying or this laughter so it's very disturbing for the families very disturbing for the individual. Sometimes it's hard to diagnose PBA from depression but with depression. We see a fair amount of crying. That's COM WITH DEPRESSION. But we can tie it to an event or circumstance or a situation that has become so overwhelming that now tears are very active in very prominent very prolonged Days on him but we can tie it back to that situation. I can tell you in my world. I've cried more the last year than I probably cried my whole life but as you know my sweet Mama passed on. May Thirty first that crying I can tie to an event In so that's different from. Pba PBA is crying. When we don't understand why it is described as a condition affecting the brain's affecting the brain with episodes of laughing or crying that are sudden unpredictable and occur without warning they could be excessive in aggravate exaggerated and inappropriate their involuntary. The people cannot control it. They don't think okay. I've got to stop crying. Got To stop crying. I'm GONNA stop crying. They may think that But they can't they can't stop crying. I'm not sure they would even think that because the brain is not allowing that process they are totally out of Any control over that situation. So it's a very interesting thing. as many as forty percent of Alzheimer's Mention patients have PBA. That struck me. I didn't realize it was so high. Forty percent of folks with Alzheimer's type dementia have pseudo bar affect disorder and as I said the inner episodes are inappropriate to the situation. There's no close relationship between the on emotional expression in the patient's mood in so it's it makes it difficult for the loved one so then you might. WanNa stop and think. Do I have a and good question to you? Well according to the Internet and the website. I looked at for the things that you need to be aware of answered the question. Are you more cheerful than in the past? And as I said can't with me yes I am accumulated sought to something Can you do that? Do you realize that you're crying more than in the past. And can you related to a reason Or You just overall depressed that would be a reason That would be the difference between crying because of depression in crying because a PBA with depression. You may cry a lot. You may not even know why you're crying today but you know you are depressed in that. Crying is related to the depression with. Pba You just cry and you can't stop it in. Somebody may be telling you a great job that is funny instead of your body being able to respond with laughter it responds with with tears. Well that's different than probably what you're experiencing Or do you have something really bad happening in your world you find out. Someone has passed and Crying you laugh. See how that's different from being able to connect your crying to a sad event or your laughter to a happy event is the emotion that you're having appropriate if it's not then we start thinking there's something going on. The question is heavy actually crying more in the past month not just felt like it but have you actually crying more in the past month when you think back on those events. Can you tie them to something? Does the weeping as come on suddenly with no warning at times when you're not expecting it in suddenly means that it's within only a few minutes in and not after several minutes of trying to control yourself you know I know that I hate to cry. I tell everybody I have one of those. Ugly CRIES OPRAH. Winfrey talks about in south by feel like. I'm going to cry. I do everything I can to stop it because I decry in so after. Several minutes are trying to gain my composure. I can stop the crying most time right with. Pba You cannot it something. You cannot control in a few filled tears coming on or if they started. Can you control them enough to stop them on the specialty in front of other people does that? Change the situation. Are you more likely to be able to stop them in front of other people than you would if you were alone because if you can control the crying it's not PBA because that is a neurological process in the brain that you don't have control over so as I was talking to my client this morning? She said there's a medicine called new DEXSA IN E U D E X A. I'm guessing I don't know It's very expensive But it seems to work really well for her dad so that was good news. I do know that some doctors prescribed extra authoritarian and Quinn quitting to help control the symptoms symptoms of PB. I I don't know how effective that is been. According to what I read it supposed to be pretty effective but whether it is or not. Aah Do not know but PPI can make just slightly more difficult for our folks with Alzheimer's in sometimes we'll see our folks with Alzheimer's crying with PBA type symptoms and will assume they're crying because they're frustrated in their sad in they're angry they're lonely in. That might be true but in the midst of that crying can you use version. They are be in. Pull them away from that crying. That thought process in. Take them to a happy thought process if you can they were not dealing with PBA but if no matter what you cannot change that mood for them so that they're no longer crying than we start wondering about PBA or if we find they're crying with laughter is appropriate or they're laughing when crying is appropriate. Then that's not Alzheimer's that's certainly would make you think. Pba Three letters and other ackerman acronym we may have another one on the next episode. I'm not sure But it is an interesting part of Alzheimer's type dementia and other dimensions also and that can certainly just make the journey more difficult for the individual end for the caregiver and remember that if it if that live situation is making your life as the caregiver difficult. It's making the life of your loved one difficult. Also they're not enjoying whatever it is causing you that extra worker that extra concern or that extra stress anxiety or tension. You might be film as the caregiver. Well they're filling too to some degree so keep that in mind. Pba look it up. Learn a lot. I hope that gives you some good information. I'll see you on the next episode of. Let's stop dementia by. Let's talk. Dementia would like to thank our sponsors National Association of Veterans and families.

"carol cinci" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia

"Hi Carol Hello and welcome to. Let's talk dementia. Well today. I've already been out in the pool and it's just been wonderful into a mating things to do today and then a little more energetic. Maybe then I felt the last few days and I'm excited about that today. We're going to talk about mild cognitive impairment. I was speaking with one of my clients just earlier in Had the conversation that his mom had been diagnosed with. Mci Mild cognitive impairment in he was surprised. Learn a few things about it and I thought maybe I should do a show about it. Do you guys watch. This is us. I'm GonNa tell you that family never has anything good ever happen. I mean there's three kids and daddy died in a fire and Oma word life. There's they have good stuff is a depressing show and why I watch it. I'm not entirely sure but always do. I stay current well. The MOM has recently been diagnosed with. Mci Mild cognitive impairment in the doctor said Rebecca has mild cognitive impairment. That will lead to Alzheimer's or something along those lines and I thought okay. That's a little different than what I understand. Mild COGNITIVE IMPAIRMENT. Because what we know. is mild cognitive. Impairment is not Alzheimer's so when I was talking to my friend Jeff earlier about his mom and he said Mons just doing so much better than she had been doing. Mom's husband had died I don't end the last year eighteen months. I can't recall exactly when I've told you this. Grief businesses serious stuff and it messes with you. She was dealing with that and she came awesome medications and she's had a huge improvement in her cognitive bing but she does have some issues and the dodgers have called mild cognitive impairment while he was surprised to learn that mild. Cognitive impairment did not necessarily mean that she would have Alzheimer's he just thought that it was the natural progression that it was early. Alzheimer's and there are physicians who will refer to mild cognitive impairment as early Alzheimer's when it's not so what is mild cognitive. Impairment will it is that inability to think clearly in all the situations of live or in many situations of why but it is not disabling. You are still able to function live on your own and and probably still work and pay your bills but things are just more difficult and waste thank Things aren't right with mom and we need to find out what's going on so The symptoms you forget things more often. You might forget appointment. Serve going out with your friends. You might have trouble making some decisions but overall you're still functioning pretty well. Then that is often called mild cognitive impairment. It is the stage between expected normal aging the decline. We get with normal aging and the serious declined. It comes with dementia. It's right in the middle in between those two things But it does not mean. You will have Alzheimer's mild. Cognitive impairment can be caused by many things. It can be a precursor to Alzheimer's it can be a precursor to Parkinson's or Lewy body dementia. It can be brought on because a vascular issues The things that we do we don't do for our body can cause on increased risk of cognitive change like diabetes and smoking and eating wrong and not moving our bodies and not having social interaction with other people being a reclusive staying in our home and not actually having a life so to speak we know that people with Mc MCI have a significantly increased risk but not a certainty of developing dimension. Did you get that? The chance of dementia brought on by a disease where it is an irreversible dementia is increase. But it's not a certainty on the Mayo Clinic. Website says overall about one to three percent of older adults develop dementia every year one to three percent of older adults develop dementia. Every year study suggests that ten to fifteen percent of individuals with mild cognitive impairment go on to develop dementia so for my friend Jeff. That's good news that only ten to fifteen percent of those folks with MCI actually do wind up with dementia for some irreversible reason like Alzheimer's or Parkinson's Parkinson's are newly body struggle. Whatever so that that's a little different than maybe what you thought. So he was looking back. Oh thanks July. August of last year of moving mom to A community had a a section. That wasn't memory care and it wasn't system living right in the middle which had more of a lifestyle like assisted living but was more secure like memory. That was a very good plan. Well she wound up not moving and has gone through. This process is getting better. And now they're thinking maybe she could go ahead and move and be in a community around people and have that social interaction that so important for all of us and I said you know. I'm not sure that mom needs to be in that middle ground. I think she's fine right there in assisted living more interaction. More normal lifestyle. Been What we would have in that bridge unit. That's between the two. He was surprised to understand that in host all assisted living communities. They will handle medication management. He's like oh I don't know mom needs to be in that bridge unit because she still has Franck leatherman's well how honestly don't know of an assisted living in this country that does not offer mid management night until you in London on. That's not the case. Those communities there are called assisted living. But they don't offer help with care for the for the human body so it's different there but pretty much United States. You're going to get that here. He was surprised to learn. And so I'm so glad. His mom has improved so what was going on at grief was weighing her down. I get it. She was on medications. That maybe she didn't need to be on any longer. Inter MEDICATIONS WERE ADJUSTED. And now she's feeling more like herself and she's able to get out and get about in participate in life. How wonderful that is. I want her to participate in life in the assisted living environment with people like herself where she can get very involved in do more things in had more of a live right. That's what we want. She can afford it. And I think it'd be good for her something to think about for your loved one so if MCI mild cognitive impairment those words have crossed. Your path don't freak out. Don't go mom's got Alzheimer's going change tomorrow. Well it's probably not true. It's going to be very slow process for them and it may never change. It may always just be mild cognitive impairment not to downplay that. I don't want to have those words set over me. That Carol has mild cognitive impairment. That would not make me happy but it also is not a certainty of Alzheimer's. That's good news isn't it? I know lady who was diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment in her thirties. She's still doing okay. I spent some time ago. Well that gives you some hope in case you're learning about mild cognitive impairment. Or you're watching. This is us and Rebecca's got it and now they're worried. She's going to have Alzheimer's. And if you sing. The flash forwards were again. Never anything good flashing forward. I think we find her in a very dark place television. I've got to go back to watching friends and frazier because it made me laugh.

"Senior Life Journeys Presents Carol Howls. Let's talk dementia. A podcast designed to help caregivers find knowledge power hope and SMILES IN THEIR DEMENTIA. Caregiving generally welcome to. Let's talk dementia. Here's your host bestselling author Carol. Welcome to let's talk to meantime Carol how your host and today we're GonNa talk about being fat. Yes we are and we're going to talk about a few Bible verses in quotes that have come to my mind lately that reflect directly applying the situations in my life and I thought you know it might help you in your life to join just maligning here and having a bit of a problem. We'll have had someone tell you you're fat. You look like you're pregnant. When is the baby due? Or you know your hair just looks awful or where did you get that pair of pants? Were they bad on you? Something just so hurtful and so inappropriate. I think we've all had that happen. And if you haven't will then yeah for you but if you're caregiving hold onto those pants that you've got on letter to Die. 'cause he's probably going to happen are folks with dementia are none for saying things that are inappropriate? And it's not necessarily that they're out to hurt you. They just say what comes to their mind. If they think you look like you put on a few pounds in this just gonNA come out and it may not land on. You may not feel so good when they say it but the question is how. Are you going to respond to those statements that are inappropriate or hurtful or offensive in some way other? Well you can be defensive. You can go well. I'm not fat but outlook as fast as you or my herlitz better than your hair or do you think these pants look bad. You should look in the mirror. What you've got on. You could say that anybody and there's really nobody on the planet you can say that too that the end result is going to be good is it and certainly not with your folks with dementia. Now if they don't have the demand don't have dementia and they say that to you then you really do have to wonder what's going on in their world that they think it's okay. Say these inappropriate things and you know what we don't know what's going on in our in other people's world we do good just to keep up with our own world. Forget keeping everybody else's straight so maybe just maybe we should ignore it from them. Maybe maybe we shouldn't. I'm not sure I don't want to hear those words to have to discern what my response would be to my person who does not have dementia but to my person who has dementia. You Might WanNa go. You know what you might be right. I should probably eat more sale reinstated. Donuts where do you think in see what their responses it would probably just cut the edge off or or the tension in the room might be less than just by agreeing? Yep I'll look wolf. Fatima should eat celery instead of donuts. And see what they say. And then you might say something like. What do you like on your salary? If you were to eat salary. What would you put on it? See what their response is. And if they don't have a good response say. Do you like peanut. Butter on celery. Have you ever tried putting peanut butter with raisins on your salary? Do you know what they call that. That's called ants on a log if you have peanut butter on a piece of salary. New Put Raisins isn't that NEAT. See Now we've taken the conversation from something that was offensive. Something that made you feel not so good or maybe even a little angry to the universal language in what told you is the universal language it is not it is food. We all relate to it and we used to version therapy to do that. We took him from one point. All the way to something different Wa- stealing knowledge in what they said. It's hard to do sometimes but it is something that I tell you over and over again for various reasons in here giving their things you need to practice in diversion. Therapy is one of them on the tape the last few days. I've had some emotions to deal with that. I have not been enjoying As you know my mom passed may thirty first and I think about her day my life and there are days that I do it. Wale and there are days when it just gets a hold of me more than what I wanted to my friend. Linda told me lead those feelings com. Let them wash over you in. Let them leave. And I've done well at that but the last few days have not done so well letting him leave. I kinda came to the realization. I'm no one's daughter That's a weird feeling. Obviously my whole life. I've been somebody's daughter and I am not anyone's daughter right now. I am not my Mama's caregiver and I love being honest caregiver There was never a thing that I did that. Mama did not affirm that I did not hear from her. Oh cookie you've got this you can. Do it have a good friend that I've recently met Michelle and showbiz eighty two years old. She's only one year older than my Momma and She has a way of a filling in sometimes on the emotions that I might would have gotten from Mama and today. She told me kid. Whatever it is you WanNa do you just do you? Just make it work saying. I just heard mom in that. Made me feel good but I wanted to read to you a quote from the Bible that I'm reading. I'm trying to think of the that. This gentleman took the Bible. Broke it up into a year and is price for America Bible. That's it and so you have old testament new tests Moore Song proverbs but there is a little prayer at the beginning of each day. I'll read you what it was for yesterday. I believe these are my Abysmal glasses for you guys. That are not seeing this but hearing hit the color on. These glasses is awful but anyway. Here's the prayer and it just really struck me now thank you it relates to caregiving to Lord. You told your first followers to have courage because you were with them. Help us to soak in that message tune to fill it in our buried bones. Remind us you've got this. You're in control. It'll be okay. I'm in Oman. Does that not speak to caregiving? Yes I think it does. And so a while back. I was given a package of today's prayer cards. Can you see that with the light on it? And they're just little four by six cards assists. Today's prayer on one side on the other side as today's prayer this was yesterday's God is within her. She will not fall. This was today. Faith can move mountains kind of where I am in this journey. Feeling that I need bolstered up and I know you do too in your caregiving journey. Have days where you think you got it going on in the days when you need bolstered up you can do this. God's got you. Faith can move. Mountains God is within her. She will not fall. You won't either but I'm here for you. Email me Carol at let's Talk Dementia Dot Org.

"Senior Life Journeys Presents Carol Howls. Let's talk dementia. A podcast designed to help caregivers find knowledge power hope and smiles lyles in their dementia caregiving journey welcome to let's talk dementia. Here's your host bestselling author. Carol Pappy Full Moon Monday caregivers. I am Carol Howl and today. Well I'm GonNa talk about the full moon and it's messing with me might be messing with your loved one with dementia. While I'm sitting here with my bathing suit on soon as I get this reporter go into the pool because I am seriously feeling some effects of something something going on in my body that I am not enjoying affecting my emotions and I think Maybe it's the full moon so I did a little bit of research on this topic. Where my notes go there? They are and then van. It's quite interesting. You know the full moon beautiful to look at and We admire the beauty of it. But does it have a physical effect on your body and if it's happening affect on your body was doing for the person who or to the person it might have dementia will. The moon gets blamed for a lot of madness on earth. Enough they say in emergency rooms. There's more people who come into the emergency room while nights a sleman. I don't know but the lat name for the moon which is Luna L. U. N. A. is the root word is the root of the word lunatic tick Luna is the Latin Name for Moon in his the root of the word lunatic. I think that's kind of interesting. Is You know it's Kinda me well about one study showed that the lunar affects have been found to have little or nothing at all to do with human behavior. So maybe I'm just imagining all. This was still another study that was conducted for over four years Showed a longitudinal study to objectively examine the lunar influence on the frequency duration and intensity of behaviors neighbors and individuals. Alzheimer's disease I read from. The article showed that there was increased wondering anxiety physical aggression and verbal confrontation confrontation so said. The study concluded that individuals with Alzheimer's disease exhibited significantly more behaviors during periods of full moon. And that those behaviors saviors were of a greater duration during the full moon. Some maybe I'm not crazy. Maybe it's having effect on me too. I can tell you that I have been very much so that the least little thing I feel like I wanNA cry. And that's not unusual for this stage of my life having Lost my momma against about nine months ago or so. I have to do the math here. weird things. Make me. Think about her and cry and I can do that just at the drop of a hat and that's not who I am normally but it's been a little more intense and are pretty much WanNa hit somebody some days. I should not say that to you should the. That's you know that feeling when your emotions are all whacked out and you're just a little jacked up and you think It's just one of those days. Everybody needs to leave me alone. And that's why I'm making sure I get to the pool today. I've already been out walking and then we had long meeting and to our meeting her. That was a thing when visit my brother-in-law Uncle Ernie in a little update on him as he is very very much not with us cognitively and he wasn't in his room when we got there we're like wears mclardy and he had politely taken himself down to someone else's room piled up in their band trying to take a nap. You know you just never know but he has has to kind lost a lot of pressure and sadness in issues were working through there but then life is just like that you take these situations that affect us that are going on in our world weather's caregiving or whether it's a full moon or whatever stresses of life will weigh us down now in. We need to be aware of that. Induce something help combat it in for me. It was walking this morning and I did that fully dressed for my day and I wore a along dress today so I'm out doing walking with my long dress on. I know people thought I was crazy but it was a nice leisure oiseaux k. I don't care what people think unaided to get out and walk for my health and then now excuse me again going to the pool I will be at the pool for an hour walking in in place. I can do over three miles walking in place in the pool in that does make me feel better now. Very thankful to live in part of the world where I can go to the pool in February also yesterday did about. I think it was a thirty five. Forty Minute online chair. Yoga feel a little funny telling I I did chair yoga not an old woman but I have problems with my thumbs so getting my weight down on my hands really doesn't work well with my thumbs so I have to be careful about that but that Chiro felt really good and I think this afternoon. I'm going to do that again. I don't WanNa tell you that there have been studies that showed judge. That sleep is affected when there is a full moon and people have go to take longer to sleep. They don't sleep as long or excuse me. Goodness Gracious. I don't know what's going on there. You get to hear it all. They take longer to go to sleep. And they don't don't sleep as long and they have a poor quality of sleep and I don't think they're entirely sure why that happens. But they know the lunar cycle does seem to influence human sleep even when. You're not aware that the moon is full and that that phase of the moon is existing. There still seems to be an effect on the human mind body that interesting. I think it is well. I've cleared my throat thirteen times on. You've had to sit here if you're watching this in the end Mabena suits actually my mom's despite institute. It's quite nice if you're listening to it with you or spared that aren't you lucky. I hope that as you're working with your loved one you will remember that they just like made a day have days when you just feel sorta crappy you do and they may not be a real reason for you just do maybe. Maybe it's the learner who knows I don't know maybe it just is in may be on those days. You need to be a little more sympathetic. Maybe a little more interactive Little more of that gentle touch you know that taking the palm of your hand in making a figure eight across their shoulder blades in the back holding their hand rubbing their hand being kind of the those displays of emotion that are displays of affection. That are so important Morton that we all enjoy some. Maybe some coconut oil in. You'RE GONNA rub their hands gently gently now not gonNA do a massage and if you go Ra my hands you saw Jim really that good feel good but no just some coconut all in in rub them good with brings me to one last. Thought I want to give you something that just came into my world today. This piece of Information Asian and met with the lady today who said that she had started using a face cream. That was probiotic now. She is allergic to dairy and she started having all these symptoms of stopped up and filling nasty and she thought. I've not had dairy. What did I do and should you know the only thing this different in my world? Is this probiotic face crane and so she looked on it and it has a milk base. Who would've thought that? I'm so glad she figured it. Out and that base in that probiotic face cream. She had a reaction to so something. Like that. Going on in your world or in your loved off once world it is something to think about so don't automatically assume your loved ones having Yucky because they have dementia will. It could be other things that might pass or things that should pass that we need to get rid of like a crane that might be causing problems just interesting you learn something new every day. Don't you oh I ho caregiving journey. Today's a good one. I hope the flow moon. Just you get to enjoy the beauty of it and you don't feel the effects of it. I hope when I get to the pool.

"carol cinci" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia

"Here's your host bestselling author Carol. Welcome to let's talk dementia. I'm Carol how are your host. I'm glad you're with me today. I'm recording this on the Sunday before the Super Bowl and I wanted to talk with you maybe a a little bit about the Super Bowl. It will be very little bit because y'all I don't know anything about it. I can't even tell you who's playing but I do have a few thoughts about it. I can tell humanely what we're GONNA talk about. Today is the topic of the sermon. That our pastor preached on our Saturday night worship pastor. Pratt he talked about perseverance severence. He talked about how our world we needed to be people who persevered more we have a tendency just to give up pin given when what we need to do is fight the fight and keep going and he said in marriages people are just too quick to give up. I can tell you when I started this company Buzney. Ten years ago I tend to training and one of the director said that most of the people in that room with not have a business five years from the because they with not persevere the air and I was like Oh will not be one of those people but in relation to the Super Bowl. All those guys out there playing on the field they persevere. They have done it for years and the years and they've practiced in played in persevered continuously to be able to play in the Super Bowl. Perseverance has been a part of their world. Well if you're a caregiver you are persevering least. I hope you are and I can tell you to your loved. One with dementia is persevering everyday we day they are facing adversity after adversity and they are walking through it as best they can use spill like well. You need to think about rather that their world is full of the can't they can't do this. They can't do that they can't they can't it's not that they want or they don't want to they physically can't they can't dress themselves anymore. They can't bay themselves. They can't feed themselves. They can't drive their car. They can't do the things they wanted to Eventually they can't even communicate but yet they persevere each day fighting through what they have to deal with. And you as a caregiver you're doing signed thank thing you're persevering so I kind of thought on the way home. After pastor press sermon you know maybe persevering through caregiving is something something we need to think about. Well this journey that I had traveled for thirteen years with my Momma. That's for pitcher in the background there. She is still to this day. Hey My heart people say she was. Your mom knows she still is. My Mama always will be in aunt. She persevered the thirteen years of Alzheimer's. And and my husband. And I we persevere through thirteen years of very close caregiving for her well. I'm thankful for those years. But you know what we're not through persevering because Michael's brother my husband's brother. My brother-in-law moved with us to Florida and has been in a memory care now in an assisted living rather since July and don't fairly well oncle Ernie has ptsd post matic stress disorder from being in Vietnam where he now has schemic heart disease because of exposure to Agent Orange and dementia brought on by agent. Orange it is a have Alzheimer's Alzheimer's but he definitely has dementia because of Agent Orange. But he's been good in Montana in assisted living. I think back about his journey and I I think about last week last week was a trip. It's not one I want to repeat. I can tell you that but on Monday God was laying the groundwork for for Wednesday for my husband and I of course we did not know that but I know it. Now you see on Monday. I had the opportunity to speak with an in home care company and learn more about them as I prepared to speak at an event that they were sponsoring in impressed with what I knew about them and it was a good experience and I also had the opportunity to talk with the marketing director at a nearby memory care community because I had a client looking for me right here for her mom and I was very impressed with what I learned on new fairmount about the company and how communities were run in the pricing was just amazing raising. 'em Like this is going to be a good resource for us. Move forward a couple days in its Wednesday up. Just pay my told across the water and to go into another town to attend my memory choir that I sing in in my phone rang and it was my husband. Michael and I could tell immediately things. Were not good so as wrong. He said we got a problem. We've got a big problem I said do I need to turn around. He said Yeah. You need come home so whipped around started back towards home another forty five minutes and What had happened is his brother? Ernie who is in a wheelchair and barely moved around in that wheelchair. He is slow. Slow Com Tom Moving from his apartment the dining room for lunch. I mean he has to start really early but on Wednesday morning while it was still early like six fifteen six thirty thirty Ernie got in his wheelchair and Ernie took himself outside with nothing on but his depends now. The main doors to the community were locked walked in Ernie had found a door that we did not even know it was there. And he had gone out that door and was outside near the dumpsters in the back of the community date by herself in his in God's good graces in providence his Physical therapist pulled in and went my goodness. That's that's Ernie. Let me see what's going on in journey. What are you doing out here? And he said I have one eight million dollars and I have to go to the Credit Union. I'm so so excited that he won a million dollars but of course he had not and she worked very hard using diversion their tactics taken his mind from one subject to another while still acknowledging. What's on his mind? She used those techniques to get him back into the building but it was not easily done but finally she she did staff called. Michael told him what had happened. And said you're going to need twenty four seven Care for him To make sure he doesn't leave the building or you need to move into memory care but even so until you getting moved a memory care he is going to need twenty four seven care well. This community did not have memory care so this meant moving well. That's where Monday comes into this story so I began thinking what we do. Wait a minute I taught I know about this in home. Care companies bring their sponsoring must speaking of in on Thursday so I called them and straight away they got someone out to sit with Ernie and I went okay. Where are we going to move Ernie to oh wait a a minute? What about that community talked to on on Monday? That has the memory care and I called. I told him the story that he's a veteran in what we're looking for and hand they were able to help us. We Got Ernie moved On Thursday I went on Wednesday. I toured I pay the deposit on got the paperwork. Two accounts of it. That is no joke to pounds of and Michael and I worked through the paperwork and while Ernie had private sitter and we got it all done now. Ernie is in a beautiful beautiful memory. Care Community here in Florida where thankful for that. We're thankful that God opened those doors on Monday and I didn't even think about didn't realize I was going to need but here on Wednesday idea so I sit here so many days past that from Wednesday to Sunday and I look back back on it and I realized God had a plan for us and he was working at plan but we must continue to persevere. We have a job to do steel and taking care of uncle. Earning where thank thank before we visit him. Bob And six well six times a week In spend my husband especially spends time with his brother in time rubbing rubbing shoulders in touching him. That that physical touch that Aren't he doesn't get is important in. He gets that from us in a year's awards. Yes I love you now. Have you have a good day. Those are important in his world. Innocent Port in our world to persevering hope you're persevering in your caregiving journey. It's tough at Ya. I know this. I don't come to you doing these shows. Having not been through much of what you're going to know. Two journeys are the same. They're very similar. But that's why I do this show so I hope you get some encouragement here and that you will feel more inclined to persevere the football players. They're keeping their reward on that Super Bowl. They've persevered. Hopefully your team will win. Whoever that is I don't even know who's playing y'all I do want to take commended? Tell you why Ernie thought he had one eight million dollars. There's actually some logic to it which you know. If you get into people's store you can begin to see that An explanation for why. They say do what they do. You see there had been a scam going through his assisted. Living a lot of the residents. Were getting a phone call telling them. They had one eight million dollars in if they would only send X.. Number dollars to this address than the people would send in their check. Well of course the mark the executive -secutive director got wind of this and tried to put a stop to it. That's next to impossible but a lot of conversation was going on in the dining room about this and it was on Ernie's as mind that he had one eight million dollars now really wish she had but he didn't but interestingly enough the powerball lottery ticket was sold in the seven eleven about two miles from his assisted living. How crazy is that? It was like three hundred seventy three hundred ninety as a million dollars. Can you even imagine now. I cannot but there was a little bit of logic behind Ernie story because this was going on in his head and it was getting all confused for him. mm-hmm well understanding what's going on with our loved ones does help us be better. Caregivers want you to persevere. Your loved ones persevering. Do with a smile and know that. God's got you right there. In the palm of his hand smiles let's talk.

"Senior Life Journeys Presents Carol Howls. Let's talk dementia. A podcast designed to help caregivers find knowledge power hope and smiles lyles in their dementia caregiving journey welcome to let's talk dementia. Here's your host bestselling author Carol Caregivers here givers welcome to. Let's talk dementia and Carol. How will your host Don glad you're here today but today I wanNa tell you a little story that makes me think about homeless total story about him in Nigeria? That's not what we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA talk about taking care of you Had A video pop up on facebook from one year ago go. Today was a video actually did one year ago yesterday and it was done at the hospital in consultation room while waiting being for my friend Charlotte to come out of breast cancer surgery now. Charlotte story was kind of interesting. And I want to share it with you and bring it to a point here CHARLOTTE ORLA had spent a great deal of time. Not going to the doctor. She didn't get regular pelvic exams. She didn't get mammograms. I don't think she got anything grand. She didn't get a blood pressure. Check dinner sugar checked and all that stuff she just was fine and then one day she had healthy she that took her to the -mergency room and Brought about need for little procedure and the doctor said how long since you've had a mammogram and she said well very long time and said he recommended she get the mammogram program. Well she did and found her breast cancer now. We are just amazed and blessed at the fact that she had stage zero. Eero breast cancer. Okay I did not know there was a stage zero and win the little mccollum Domi Caroline got stage zero risk cancer. I thought she didn't hear that right. Because because there is not a stage zero but there is and that's if you're gonNA find out you've got breast cancer you want to hear the words stage zero before it So that that was excellent. She wound up hat needing to have a lumpectomy fairly Incision that She took care of and healed quickly quickly from and then have radiation afterwards but it also made me think about you guys when that video popped up. Are you taking care of yourself. It's been on my mind lately last week. I did have my mammogram. And while I don't enjoy having that done now is not fun. But it's necessary and you know it only hurts parts while they're mashing your boob. It doesn't hurt after they let go. So you know you can breathe through it. Make it and my letter came this way that everything was fine you know. Are you read that letter and you think Oh. That's really good news though the trash. I didn't do that because I remember when Charlotte got the news that it was not off fine and how I wish wish she had gotten a letter. That said everything's fine. See you in a year. We kinda take that for granted. So don't do that but also make sure your current on that now I know you're you're busy caregiving. I know it's hard to get time away. And maybe you've got a range for someone to come sit with your loved ones so you can go get a mammogram or go to the doctor and get other things checked. Act You gotTa do it folks. You've gotta take time for yourself because if you're not monitoring your health and something happens to you who's GonNa take care of your loved one. You gotta think about this so periodically. We're supposed to do this about once a month at our house. Were not real good at remembering to do it. We check our blood pressure so today. We're going to do that so I have this. Omron version of blood pressure cut kit on safe. There's as a model on it here. Be Seven Acre but glasses back on. BP seven eight five in. That's it baby. Seven eight five. We researched it and found out that this particular blood pressure cuff was ranked among the most accurate. So we bought it in. It's easy to use and I'm just GONNA show you guys how easy it is the trap your blood pressure so you gotta get the cuff put on your arm and the tubing coming out of the Cup needs needs to line up with the center of your inner arm right where your armband make. Sure you've got the Cook Pasture Elbow up going towards your L.. Go torture shoulder intrepid on there now I was talked to hold my arm what is that thing called all heart heart level so that that would give them more accurate rating. Some people. Just let their arm hanging. It's not what I told or else rested on a pillar. Whatever I normally just hold my hand my arm and other hand let it rest there then all you have to do on this cute? Little machine is press the start button and when you do do it will start pumping up. You might can hear that pumping up noise and it gets tighter and tighter. Not One of the people who thinks having your blood pressure checked is not particularly enjoyable because my skin is sensitive and I really feel this on my skin but it's kind of like having you smashed it only only last for a little bit of time that I just say Bubis. You're not supposed to say that. So let me just steel here for men breathing the N.. Breathing out does if you're moving around a good bit you could call your blood pressure go up just by doing that of lab not done it in out and mine came up normal now on my machine. It shows one twenty nine over seventy two. Let me get this so so you can see it. Hopefully and you can see the light is on on the systolic in down below. What does that diastolic dial? I don't know I don't remember what that word is. Another talk was just olive but it's lit up in green in the green mates. Happy go all is well. It turns up in red not so happy. You need to be be working on getting your blood pressure down turn it off take it off good to go. That's how easy. Oh let's get this couple. That's how easy it is to check your blood pressure now if you noticed that. Your blood pressure's a little high highly. Recommend taking it in the other arm. So you what you show there in. Don't freak out if it's high check. GET TAMARA CHECK IT for three or four days. Maybe every other day for awhile or everyday for wild ride it down and keep track of it if you consistently have high blood pressure. Then let's get it checked. Excuse me if you have just had a stressful time with your loved one. It's not the time to take your blood pressure. goes his high you stress. Maybe take it when you wake up first thing in the morning and you're feeling relaxed now. We also want to check your blood sugar now. The Kit that we have is just one from Walgreens Oh Greens is called true metrix. There's all kinds of blood pressure are not blood pressure. Blood sugar kits. They're just very cheap on. But you take jake the needle Twist a little indoctrinated you stick it down in there you put the cap back on the little device and then you pull back doc it spring loads it when you press the button. Here it clicks implode clicks. That's when the needle is GONNA come out. You can set.

You're GonNa Take Your Monitor and you've got a container of strips you're gonNA reach in and get a stripped and put it into the machine the side that has the little strip. The one single strip is exposed. The other end goes into the machine like so you just stick it in there in the machine.

That's good if you have Blood Sugar Below hundred at fasting. Meaning you've got you taking in your blood sugar reading first thing in the morning before you've eaten bits below one hundred that's a good thing mine's below one hundred already had breakfast so that's a very good thing for me you you say you want your sugar to be below one hundred fasting. You want your blood pressure to be one twenty over eighty all the way up to potentially one forty over ninety but I think your daughter's GonNa pay okay to keep a closer to twenty over eighty thing if your blood pressure's high consistently you need to do something about it. It is called the silent killer. Your blood pressure can be high and can you not know it and you've done some doing some serious damage to your body something to blood sugar. Your blood sugar.

"carol cinci" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia

"Here's your host bestselling author. Carol I caregivers welcome to. Let's talk. Dementia I am Carol. How will your host? And we'll talk about foster care. Do you think this was a show about dementia. Am I totally confused. Well no not really had a very interesting conversation last week with a lady who. I won't tell you her name but a little bit. What about her story and it has just stuck with me and I thought you know this is something that I should share? She on call regarding her dad. Who is living being on his own and having some memory issues and been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Some very valid concerns about his safety in driving wink and in keeping appointments arriving at appointments five hours. Early you know all those things that start to happen with dementia. That kind of scare US Asas family members and we think ooh this is not safe anymore. I don't know that this is true but I think sometimes the females in the family worry more about at their parents and maybe the males duty I guess true. I don't know I just I listen to her talk and I hear myself in my story in lots of ways in what she's telling In touch my heart. Her Dad said to her. All you and your sister trying to do is move me to foster care will l. ever heard it got lots of things when we want to move our loved ones from their home to a community where they'd be geared of cared for but foster care. I had not heard of that one before. It just made me Giggle but the reason I tell you that is your loved. One may be protesting the move live to a group living situation whether it be a Assisted living in memory care or a wonderful group home. I do love group homes. You know where there's like five or six people in the home being well cared for. They may be protesting that because they have a vision in their head or a pitcher in their ahead of what that is like based on the last time they saw it in the last time they saw it was probably nineteen fifty or sixty or even the seventies Even the eighties folks but that is not what we have going on today and she said this lady that I talked with Satish I just really want dad to move to an assisted living. And we're going to start this week. Going in touring and But I don't ever getting a move and I said the first thing you have to help dad realize is not that he needs to move. We're not gonNA try to convince him of that what we're going to show him instead is retirement matt living in a wonderful exclusive high-end community. I don't care what do you choose. That's what the words were going to use. And when he goes and sees what assisted living is today will. He's going to be shocked. Because I can tell you. Even in the eighties assisted. Living was not something something we heard a very much in if we did it was not what it is today I remember before I ever started in this industry three bag in the early eighties visiting skilled nursing communities. And that's pretty much all there was and all the people were lying up. Just he's in their wheelchairs sort of not their drooling Curled in the fetal position. And you walk down the hall mess. What she saw will that is the vision or that is the picture that so many of our folks have in their head? There is nobody that says you know. I just think I wanNA move to that. Sign me up. No No. They don't do that. They're like whatever happens. You keep me out of that. I'll stay home. They don't have in their head. The picture of a one bedroom fully furnished apartment Martin with all their favorite things in a maid and a Butler initiative and a driver right inactivity stranger. They don't think that so. That's what we want them to seen. In a total of the best way to what not the best way but several ways to do it and one of them is just take that for lunch. One day we're going to a new place you're GONNA WANNA have launched their offering free lunch and I'm all for a free lunch. Dad What do you think take him get him in there. Let him see this beautiful community in if all you do is have have launched. Then you've got dad's foot in the door and then maybe you can talk to him in I in the car on the way home because he's not GonNa remember later in the afternoon. That's a wonderful wonderful retirement community where people live and then maybe go to another one in let him have lunch there with you save. There's one that he seems to respond more positively to than others that he has more of a reaction to than others And then at some point go back and May Have data look at an apartment now. If Dad's able to help make that decision having look at the apartment see what he thinks. If that's not able to make that decision and you're GonNa make it on your own then arrange warning where someone's GonNa Come Take Dad and take him out fishing or take him out to do whatever it is. Dad Likes to do if it was does your Mama I would say. We don't take her shopping but most been probably. Don't WanNa go do that but to get that out of the house for three or four hours and you're going to have a team aim of really good people and a truck or two and you're going to move at least the essentials from Dad's home straight DADS assisted living apartment. His bad his favorite uh-huh his favorite chair has favorite pitchers. Favorite blanket is TV that pitcher. That's hung above the TV the picture of his wife. The pitchers children whatever. It is that when dad walks into his house now he thinks this is home. You won't at least some of those things in this new assisted living apartment. Then take that back for lunch. Dallas about their. They're offering free lunch again and after lunch maybe he can play Bingo or whatever why you've finished setting up that apartment then you'd say dad come down here on the show you something. This is where you're going to stay for a few nights because we're all going out of town in we can't be here to take care of you just a little worried. What about you so I want you to love me enough just to stay here for a few nights? And then when we get back will come see In he might protests. Yes that yeah but you will work around it but thanking God. He's only there for a few nights will lay on him in a way that he's likely to to be accepting of that idea. Now if you take Dan go. Hey Dad here's your new apartment. You're gonNA live here forever because you can't live by yourself. I don't want to live by yourself. Okay so you next week think. Well that's not gonNa feel good anybody so don't be crazy and do that but tell dad you know you're going to be gone for a few days. I think we had a client that we told her her that family came up with this. That there was Talks Mold in her house and they were going to have it fixed in. She couldn't be there while they were cleaning ed maker sick and so they had arranged for her to stay in this wonderful apartment poly about a week while they fixed it in that worked so you think well what happens in a week AAC when the toxic malls supposed to be done or what happens after three or four days when we're supposed to be back from vacation well one of the beauties of dementias we don't have a good the perception of time and space a week really doesn't mean anything to us a week may feel like In two months or a week may I feel like a day so we don't understand that concept anymore time so if they say to you well can I move back to my house when no mom there. You had taught Simone Your House. They're trying to get it out or I've I'm going to be leaving in just a couple of days to go on a trip nap. You tell your votes. You're leaving to go on a trip that that might be a good time to leave and go on a trip. I'm just saying especially the first couple of days May Be at least twenty four forty eight hours give your. I loved one a chance to settle in there before he's sworn back in now their communities to stay stay gone a week. No you don't not when you first move a man if you taking it all help. It don't do that. They do need to see your face and know that you're still alive. You still love him. And everything's GonNa be okay but have your story straight in your brain about about why they are there and how long they have to stay in stick with that story it will work. I've told you before about the lady who moved in and her. The whole family just decorated her one bedroom. Apartments is just really really pretty and we were so excited I walked in with her and her boys For them to show her the apartment and she said this is pretty. This is pretty look there. You've got to pitch remain cutch collar husbands night. And then she sat down in her recliner. She said well this is my recliner and in her son Simone. This is your new apartment. You're going to live here. And she said you guys sit down and when they sit down she said. I hope you all rot inhale because I am not staying here wail we all about dropped. RT It was like holy cow. We so we're not expecting that because she was so receptive how gorgeous apartment was in all her pretty stuff in there. She was not happy but you know she lived there very happily. It took her three or four four days to figure out it was okay and she wasn't mad at anybody and To forget the whole episode and she became very easy to get along with and and Excited to live there. She also thought I was the Mayor of Charlotte North Carolina and. I did not proceed to dissuade her that I was happy to be. The mayor was for several years. Then all all of a sudden I was no longer the mayor. I don't know what happened that I lost that position in her brain so anyway I'm glad to know that this lady that I was talking about early early will not be moving. Her Dad foster care but potentially tune assisted living. If you're looking for an assisted living calming let me tell you I know of some good ones in your part of the world.

"Senior Life Journeys Presents Carol Howls. Let's talk dementia. A podcast designed to help caregivers find knowledge power hope and smiles lyles in their dementia caregiving journey welcome to let's talk dementia. Here's your host bestselling author Carol. Hello caregivers and welcome to. Let's talk dementia today. We're going to talk about you tips to help you get your loved one ready for that big Christmas into it in a way. That is respectful of who they are. You know your loved. One has spent their life brushing their T. brushing their hair and doing their grooming in cleaning leaning themselves in picking out there. Close now all of a sudden you come along and you want to do it all for them. Well that might not settle real well with them unless you were Mama Mama Mama Mama would let you do anything for her. That kept her from having to do it for her sale. She was Elisa little thing but it did make caregiving a lot. Easier sure but nonetheless we need to have respect for our loved ones in regards to making sure. We don't rob them of dignity while we are are caring for the now. You won't look good all the time I know. I always did with Mamma youth earrings and Take after her rings on every finger bracelets I mean she won't hold Shebang and are Mak- And our white diamonds clung. But you especially wouldn't look good if you're the primary caregiver and everybody's come in your house for Christmas. You won't mom or dad or your husband your wife whatever. Look good one of the things you want to practices that hand over hand method of of caring for them so it's time to brush their teeth. Now these are techniques we're gonNA use every day. You're not just at Christmas. But you can go up and start brushing their teeth as you know sticking it to brush their mouth Dylan them to open up. Open your mouth separate your teeth. Quick Gagging is not gonNA work. Oh good but you really gotTA brushed teeth. We don't want you know we don't cavities teeth fallen. We don't want bad breath for heaven's sakes so we're going to put the toothpaste on that toothbrush. And while they hold it which they're used I used to their hand coming to their mouth. They've been doing that their entire life. But you're GONNA put your hand on their hand and guide it. It's called hand over hand method. Can you do it this way. Hand over hand. So you're going to guide that toothbrush in help them brush like the bottom quadrant now if you let them go after they've done on it for a little bit. You might be surprised to see that they can do that without you guiding hand but they probably are not going to switch up do that top quadrant or the bottom bottom one on the other side so while we've got the brush turn with the The bristles Dan. Let's go ahead and guide that handed over here to brush this side and then get them going and and see if they will continue doing it in if they don't move in brushed bottom quadrant all by their own. Then you're going to hand over hand. God that quadrant. Ah God that brush across the quadrant. Then you're going to have to turn that brush bristles in we're going to guide them to brush top see if they continue. Let them do it if they can. If not help them and then move over reminding them to spit into rents keeping toothbrush wet. You don't want them choking be careful about that. You probably don't brush off four quadrants without spitting do so. Remember that when you're working with your loved one you don't want their mouth filling up with that toothpaste in getting getting down their throat. And then we gag. That's messes and we know the same technique can be used when you are helping someone shave. If you're shaving saving what women shave to folks. I mean you know I tell my husband if I ever get debilitating. I can't take care of myself. You don't shave me right through here. I'm going to look like a hairy monster. I will not be happy with you. In Mama would go this. She would stick her tongue up in the corner up under her upper lip and make her lipstick out that meant. She needed her her mustache shea. Nuts how she would tell us that doors the end so again that may be something they will let you do. Your your husband might let us shave them. That is more likely to be something. Gentlemen will let us do for them. 'cause they probably had somebody else shaved them in their Mike periodically and that does not feel all that uncomfortable to have somebody come with them with the racer but it might not feel good so again. We're going to do hand over hand putting that razor in their hand prevalent electric razor because we're probably gone have a reduced chance of harming them with an electric razor in. We're going to guide their hand across their face to link that shaving. Now if you're using a regular razor in you need the soap and shaving cream and all that be very careful because you gotta realize allows one quick jerk the wrong way and you've got a problem so still that hand over hand where if they jerk you can pull away very quickly and protect them Liam hand over hand. Method is just a neat technique. Now what if your loved one needs help eating They won't feed themselves. You've got to feed them again again. Don't go at their face with the spoon or fork. That does not feel good. Neither Momma did that when they were little. That was okay. But nobody's come at the with a fork or spoon. That doesn't feel normal at all. But that muscle memory remembers their hand coming to their mouth in that muscle memory can and be activated. If that's the word we WANNA use by putting your hands over their hand. While they hold their spooner they hold their fort in helping to guy as they scoop up the food and they bring it to their mail and again you might say after two or three bytes that they get the hang of it again in they can feed themselves but they may not depending on how far along in this process called the mench that they are so be aware of that but it just is a respectful. I want to help them. Maintain their dignity while you care for them when they're getting dressed. Don't just button all the buttons Zip all Zippers. Put the socks in the shoes on. See see what they can do. Allow them to help button and if it takes a little longer you can possibly allow that time. Let them do it. And what if they get through in their buttons off and you know we've got a buttonhole down here that doesn't have a button a button up here that have a button hall where you can just go right up. Go Good Gracious Gracious. Mama you've got your buttons all messed up. Let me fix it or you can wait a little bit. Go Up to him and go. You know what I missed up when your shirt US escaped buttonhole. Good gracious I must not have been paying attention. Let me fix my mistake. Just take responsibility for what you didn't do but see you're keeping their the dignity intact. You're not making them feel less than because they didn't but in their shirt right who can't button shirt. They've been banished shirt forever. We don't WanNa make him feel poorly about themselves because they missed a button. I mean really is just not one of those things that we ever want to bring up to them. Maybe help them pull their pants across their feet. Eight and up to their hip. In Vince I hey mom can you pull your pants on while I could get your hairbrush and give her a chance to work those pants up to seek him she do in if she can't then you come back new saying you did a great job here. Let me help you finish up. Because we've got get to the kitchen check on the Turkey you know some subject that will take take their mind away from the fact that they weren't successful in getting dressed now you've taken him to another -nother thaw another train of thought in there Brian that they can then concentrate synthroid on and speaking of helping with that Turkey if they are things that your loved one can do to help in the kitchen. Please ask them to do it now. You gotTA think about it. This is something they're going to do. I remember the example of helping Working with a group of of ladies innocent in memory care community folding laundry and and we had towels in west coast baby clothes and the only thing. They won't default photos debate because they were not interested in two thousand wash call. That was more than one. Vote the baby clothes and of course it took forever and thirty six days which was great because they had to rub movement older just a cute little. It was something for them to do. But your loved one may never ever been interested in cooking and so getting them in the kitchen they may all of a sudden have an interest in it and they may not to said. Think about bad if you get get them in and say hey mom could you put the biscuits in the end the breadbasket. That's something that can easily do in. They don't want to while they probably didn't do it in the the past but one way or the other they don't want to or not pushing folks to do stuff they don't WanNa do when they have dementia that setting yourself up for big old problem in. It's not worth it but I can tell you mom up until about January. She passed in May Around January February even she. You would get in the kitchen with me and her group home on Sundays. I Cook there and she would help me and it was things like we had keen walk patties frozen king walk. Petty said I buy ready made that are amazing in we had to put them on a pan and I said Mama here. Can you take these in in Lynam up on the PAN and and she would just work at it in it was something she could do to help me. NSA that word help loosely. But it got her involved in we could stand there and talk about things. I A cherished memories. And that's what I want you to have is some of those happy memories to look back on while we sit here just a few days before Christmas in when I think about being in the kitchen and with my mom I think about her making Turkey gravy. Now I don't eat Turkey and I don't eat meat but growing up I did and I can tell you one thing my momma made the best Turkey Turkey gravy on the planet. Sounds good to me and I don't even want Turkey glove those memories a Mama there. She is in the background. I am a special shout.

"carol cinci" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia

"You've chosen to join me today. So we're going to talk about food venting as this is being recorded. It's scheduled to release just before Christmas. And then we'll take a little bit of time off to celebrate the wonderful Christmas season with family and friends in just take a break. But before I do that I do WanNa talk to you about preventing falls in your loved one especially when there's a lot of people in the house as we increase the chances for those falls we don't WanNa come on the other side of Christmas with black and blue face over a broken hip or a broken arm and unfortunately this is very common for our loved ones with dementia. I know this because I went with my Momma. She never broke anything. Oh how I pray. Please Lord no broken hip Sir. Broken legs or arms but she did follow a couple of times and Mama was real good about sliding forbid she would. That's a southern. Other words you would move for sale to the edge of the bed and instead of standing up which she could not figure out how to do on her own she would die in there she would be lying in the floor and then the staff would have to call and say Miss Vera fail well. She really didn't fall. She just slip out of the best so it was kind of kind of interesting but there are things we can do to prevent or help to reduce is more accurate help to reduce the chances of a fall. We are not going to one hundred percent reduce news or prevent falls. We're not going to one hundred percent prevent falls for anybody. If there's anybody that's good at falling it is me. I can follow him onto a but we can also reduce the chances of falling in the first thing you WanNa do is get the junk out of your house. Now I've been in some your houses. You got too so much you know. What's it? All those shot ski sitting around. Just get the attention over-stimulation. That's not good for your loved ones. Simplicity now not to the point that there's nothing to look at but if you've just got stuff everywhere it's a little bit too Stimulating Environment for folks with dementia. So maybe paring down a little bit too good idea idea but getting all this stuff out of the walkway out of the normal pass from their tier to the kitchen from their chair to the bathroom from their chair to wherever that they may travel that. There's not step they're gonNA catch their feet on and honey throw rugs have got to go. I just throw rugs on the whole are just not safe for most people the only rugs that are in my house are heavy. Rugs that you're not going to get your foot under their very heavy really there cons of rugs but folks with dementia. Their Gate is off. They're not picking up their fate properly. I'm not good at that either. But that's a very easy way to get your foot call or your toe of your shoe or your foot. It caught under that Reagan down. You go you want to store everyday things that they will use within their reach. You don't want somebody reaching way a up high trying to get something to get on their tiptoes. You get up on your tiptoes. It are ones are not weevils. You remember wearables. Oh from the nineteen eighties. I guess we both wobble. But they don't fall down will our folks are not able because they will fall down. I have ever weevils Gosh remember we will NAP. You're listening to this on the podcast rather than seeing the video. You can't say this but you can find it on my website if you want to watch the video. This is a way bulls and they they wobble but they don't fall down but your folks are GonNa fall down and so we want to store those things that they will use every day right within their reach that they can easily get to it in the kitchen. You might consider taking a cabinet door off and leaving that cabinet exposed with the things they will use every day their favorite cereal their favorite snack their brand therefore they're spoon their play their cup. Some Napkins things that they can get to. Where were they? Don't have to search through six drawers and seven or eight cabinets. Define what they want. You WanNa make their room safe to consider handrails on the bed if you are not in a assisted living or an environment that facility type of environment. If you're in the how you can put rails on your band why you you can't do it in an assisted living. I know why it goes against the long most states. But it's just a dumb law but if you can safely put handrails on the bad for your loved one. I am all for now. If using your loved one's going to be one that's going to try to come over those handrails and then fall even further down. Be Aware that don't put them so. Many of our folks just need it for the same reason a kid did they go to turn over they roll and they fall out. You don't want that so you just won't something to kind of protect data eh Bed Rails On the bid or good but think about an adjustable ban now I thought that was going to be really expensive awesome. You know one that raises up and down in. It's nice if the head comes up and down but especially the whole bid will come up and down was able to buy one of those us from Oh Mama for a hundred bucks in the do delivered it. Yeah I mean he had to travel about thirty minutes bring it to me but he did on just needed it out of his house. His brother had passed Asti no longer needed it and it raised up and down. Let me tell you how much easier that may providing care for my mom when she became Immobile and was the bid for twenty four days before passing. We could raise her right up to the proper level for us in cleaner and Washer and change your clothes get comfortable in the low. Oh that bad all the way down anytime. Mom was left alone in her room. That bid was as far down as we go so if she did start to come out of bed she and how far far to go padded mats on the floor. You can buy these mats. They're not super expensive. They're generally blue and they're about the length of the bad not quite so that if they come out of the bad lie Momma did sliding out of the bed. They're going to land on that padded Blue Matt and that's just an extra little precaution caution. It's a good thing if your loved. One is incontinent. You're probably using depends I recommend on the badge. You put those Blue Matt's they're disposable The I don't know what the things are made out of. But if they tink on it absorbs into that blue met in protects the mattress in the buck Willnot box springs. It's not go that far but it protects exum mattress from urine or from anything that might Soil the bandwidth If your folks are not using the peons US still think I would put that between the sheet and the mattress may be such. It's not real obvious. Dozen move or get on Anna in their way just to protect. Be Aware if your folks are. I'm not using depends that they might need depends at night in. Consider they I can tell you something that Change for my mom that I was a little bit startled at when it happened was when they put the kinds of depends on her. That I used a pinch generically PULL UPS on her. That didn't pull up. They were diaper style where they actually actually had tabs at pulled often hooked on each side. Not Ball I duNno. It just bothered me that mom and needed those but see when staff comes in to take take care of the of that person in the middle of the night and they're wet or their soil. It is much easier to change them in the middle of the night with those kinds of on Depend type products on rather than one. That's gotTa pull off the Pajama Bottoms. Pool that down put on the Cleveland. Put on the claim Pajama Bottoms. It's it's a big problem so think about that. It might make you easier. Think about mirrors in your home if you've got mirrors that are at their level that's distracting acting. Believe it or not. It's not something that is necessarily a good idea especially if when the later stages of dementia are folks in those stages may may not recognize that person in the mirror. You gotta remember. They're living back in time. And if they think it's nineteen fifty six and they look in the mirror in in two thousand and nineteen almost two thousand twenty. The person they see they don't recognize because see. They think that they're eighteen years old are they think they're however role in this person is not and they really can start thinking that there's a stranger in their room it's frightening They want you to get that person out. That shows up every every time they go on their own. They're there every time in. Its that person in the mirror so be aware of that. Make sure that any medications. They are on if the side effect is dizziness. In his that you're aware of that and maybe talk to the doctors or something that we can doesn't cause dizziness but that can be a problem. Make sure that dentures here's hearing aids. Glasses are all stored in a in an area where they can easily get to them. Don't put the hearing aid a bonus shelf in the in the medicine. Listen cabinet or the glasses or the dangerous were. They can't reach them at night because they may wake up and decide. They need those. They need to be at their level where they can easily get to them. Make sure they fit properly on them. adequately make sure their shoes fit. You know if we're walking around and shoes that don't fit or shoes that are warm. Then it just increases your chances of fall plus damage to the flood. It's just not good and then make sure they're hydrated whale and fan well and they're not hungry or thirsty. Those are things that make dementia worst in not being hydrated leads to constipation. Constipation makes dementia. Worst but then you don't want to be constantly constantly drinking drinking drinking thinking you're going to keep them from being dehydrated because then they're just going to think. Oh more so make sure you gotTA balance. They're maybe limiting caffeine vein not overdoing caffeine and not overdoing on. Fizzy waters are Carbonated drinks there. You go because that will make the tinkle more than what we got to take. All the more gotta go the bathroom but keep that balance so that they don't become dehydrated. Well just a few tips for maybe reducing your chances of your I loved one falling. We're not gonNA prevent at one hundred percent but we sure go to work to reduce it. You know the human skin is not made to survive going SPLAT. You'RE GONNA come up all black and blue. That's not a good look. Are I hope that helps you see you. Next time. bye-bye let's talk.

"carol cinci" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia

"Did you see my little dog. Just leave the room. I guess she's she's bored. I don't know well today. I WanNa talk to you about how things are not always what they seem recently. We've been doing a lot of talking about preventing Alzheimer's and thought we'd just take a little break from that talk about life so today the kind of a weird day. It's been up. Call it a a weepy Mama Day. We'd be Mama morning. I heard the song on the gaither either vocal channel which I love the gaither vocal band. I listen to their music a lot of times. And this trio of women. I don't know who they were saying. The song angels in the Roane and it was talking about a man who is passing and he was saying to his family. Look don't you see there are angels in the room. Well it took me back very quickly to May thirty first When my mom passed and It was sad for me and it's still is obviously. I think about that day and I think about her passing and how beautiful and and wonderful in and full of the Holy Spirit that day was but in my heart when I think about it is painful and I don't know that it's something I'll ever get over were and I don't really think I want to. I want to always have that strong connection to my Mama and I know I will but when you see me out in public I'm always smiling. I'm always have a makeup looks much better than it looks right now. 'cause well I've been crying. You might not know in passing what has gone on in my life for the last. Thirteen years Tom In watching Mama go from being vibrant working woman who could outsail anybody in the store no matter what the product making me. Oh so happy. Every time she knocked on my door bringing me Sonic Cherry lime AIDS with extra Jerry's because she knows she knew that's what I liked to becoming becoming a woman who when she looked at me did not know who I was. You know how hard that is. If you're not there yet in your journey your loved one and sticks around long enough. You're going to experience that in. It's painful it hurts so when you see me out in public you would have no clue of that. It just makes me think about there are people in our world. Well let me just back that up. Everybody we literally everybody we meet is dealing with something that we don't know about. We don't know if they're caregivers we don't know if they have been abandoned Brandin if they have been abused maybe they are in a very stressful and awful life situation where they're being physically mentally l. e. sexually financially whatever kind of abuse they're receiving maybe they're being bullied at school. Maybe they're different for whatever reason and they're being made to feel less than maybe the morning. Maybe they're grieving. Maybe they've lost a job maybe they've they've lost their home. They've lost their income. Maybe they've lost their mama their daddy their husband their wife their sibling their best friend. You just don't know and so what I want to say to you today. Is Bill aware of that. You are not the only person person in the world who is dealing with tough times Thanksgiving's coming Christmas around the corner. Those are extremely difficult times for many many people. The suicide rate is higher between now in the first of the year that any other time of the year because holidays are hard. It's hard being around family. Sometimes that may not be accepting of you for whatever reason. It's hard being around families that don't understand your grief that don't acknowledge it. And maybe maybe you're not acknowledging it and their own world. It's hard sometimes to pull up your big girl panties and keep going for the day. But I want you to know that when you're meeting up with these people and you're realizing that everything is not what it appears to be that behind that or in front of that. In addition to that we need to bring smiles miles. We need to bring hope. We need to bring words of encouragement. We need to let folks know we are there for them. I have a friend who who donates to our company monthly and. I'm so thankful for all of you. Folks who donate to our ministry so that we can keep paying for these podcasts in these videos that you you watch her cards make me so happy. There's nothing profound. It's just. She took a moment to ride. Why in tell me what's going on in her world and into thanked me for helping her in her journey but just hearing from her that that touch in my world just means a lot it to me? I was riding her today. Thanking her for that people's lives are not all what they seem and I know in her world. She's dealt with a lot of great from the passing of her sister. People deal with a lot. Look at this picture. What do you see? You should see an owl and this picture was actually taken after. I had spoken. Okay one night in North Carolina back in October and the lady I was with went. Look there is an al I wear wear is the out. It had flown right over over. My head landed in the tree and she cut that pitcher. Isn't it incredible. I think it is absolutely a gorgeous pitcher but look at the purple in the background. You know that's not what you think it is to me. It looked like maybe purple flowers in the background. Purple something in the tree. But it's the dark night sky. See Things aren't what they appear to be. We see one thing but what actually might be could could be something totally different. You know you have to think about that. Think about that when it comes to your loved one. What they are experiencing is probably not what you think they are experiencing? What they are seeing is certainly not what you're seeing? Their vision has changed so much what they are wishing for in hoping for and desirous of. I don't think we can begin to imagine and the stress that they feel from not being able to to participate in life. We don't have a clue I can teach you about it. I can try to help you understand but I don't know and you no no one knows because the people who do know can't tell us about it but it's got to be it's just got to be a very agonizing using thing to be in a room full of people and not be able to participate in life with him. That's what your loved ones kind of feel like Thanksgiving and Christmas may be New Year's and whenever ever whenever you get the family together they want to be a part of the world. They want to be able to participate. They look like they should be able to man up until January of this year. Mamma died in May up into January. Viewer visit mom. You might not even guess just by looking king at her that she had advanced age. Alzheimer's would be leaving us in five months. Things are not what they seem but she was dealing with a lot in. She was confused a lot and she was frustrated law and she even had pain. Things are not what they seem and being aware of that. Uh when you're taking care of your loved one is important but helping your friends to be aware of that as they interact with you. That's SORTA Kinda maybe a little bit your responsibility because until you've care give in a in a specific situation especially dementia Asia. Then you don't understand it if your friends have not been through that caregiving experience. They don't know what you're going through so maybe just a little word from you. That says I'm having a weepy. Mama morning I feel like Poo Poo and it's messed my makeup all up an adult. Need you to solve anything for me right now. Yeah if you could just put your arms around me all I cry. Well that would mean a lot to me. I've told my husband husband that US if a Stark Ryan you don't have to fix its use after all me and as my friend Linda Tommy. She's a carol when those moments come let them come. Let them wash over you and feel you but let them leave GotTa let them leave today. See Her read. It makes my my face and I just put on my makeup on award well. I hope that you've got some words of wisdom from me today with my arterial itself and for you folks who don't have this video form in you're listening to maybe you can go to our website and pull up this this video and see that beautiful picture how it is quite something up.

"Senior Life Journeys Presents Carol Howls. Let's talk dementia. A podcast designed to help caregivers find knowledge power hope and smiles lyles in their dementia caregiving journey welcome to let's talk dementia. Here's your host bestselling author Carol. Welcome back to. Let's talk dementia. I appear on how will your host thank you for joining me. In Our last episode we talked about the importance of civil things to help. Help reduce our chances of Alzheimer's in today I WanNa talk to you about the importance of sleep now. I told you that I had been having a hard time staying asleep in. That's it's not good. We need several hours of uninterrupted sleep. which I couldn't seem to get but I wanNA talk about Tim steps that you can do to increase your chances of getting healthy beneficial productive as well? I'll tell you as what in just a little bit how productive your brain can be Sleep for you and for your Elo. Cruiser L. O.. Niece has sleet to believe me. The first thing you can do is to maintain a schedule that allows for seven to nine hours of sleep in in the best way that you can do that is by not needing to set an alarm clock while you say I got to get up and get going but if you are going to bed at the exact exact same time every night and getting up at the exact same time. Every morning your brain will begin to adjust to that and I read that and I thought Um I don't know if I believe that or not till I started paying attention to it and my brain is waking me up somewhere between six and six fifteen which bad way. I am not entirely happy. I ride rather have ten o'clock. Don't be good and the other thing you WanNa do when you do get up to go the bathroom. I'm in the middle of the night like I'm good at doing is. Don't open your eyes all the way. Don't flip on the light unless you're going to go into the bathroom. They may be. You need just a little night. Light light put out or some things that keep you from having to put on the full overhead light. Because when you do in the light gets into your brain it resets your circadian Acadian Rhythm in your brain and that's what helps you stay on track for going to sleep and waking up so we don't want to wake up your brain okay. We want to keep everything dark working in his quiet as we. Can You WANNA stop caffeine by two o'clock now. have it. Had Caffeine like forever and thirty six days. So that's not an issue issue for me but you need to remember that if at Caffeine the half-life of caffeine is about six to eight hours so if you have caffeine at two o'clock in the afternoon in the half life of it is Eight o'clock then by Tiller clock half of the effect that caffeine is still in your body. It might be keeping you from going to sleep so think about that when you are discerning when you should stop having Pepsi Cola which. ps I know offense to Pepsi. But you don't need to be having it all is so bad for your body so keep that in mind. Avoid alcohol within three hours of your bedtime now. A lot of us will think. Oh I'll have a glass of wine to help me sleepy. Help me get sleepy and that okay. That might work but give yourself about three hours before you go to sleep That so the alcohol has time to bend to be digested and won't have a major effect on your ability to sleep peacefully because you can't have an issue with that exercising. Yeah you kind of heard this before from exercising during the day will help be sleep better at night but you also don't want to exercise like right before bedtime when it gets you really away. You don't WanNa do that so make sure you you avoid exercising. I think it's three to four hours before bedtime. Get Sunlight in the morning so my husband and I we get up while it's still dark with this dead gone time change. I don't know why we changed the time fall forward known. Yeah spring forward fall back. I don't know why we do that. Mass but now when we get up it's dark so we're getting outside justice. The Sun is coming up if you are outside when the sun is coming up or when the sun is going down it does help reduce depression but being outside when the sun is coming up So for about thirty minutes will help to set the the Circadian Rhythm and it turns off off Melatonin so being outside. We'll stop the release of Melatonin. You're Brian make you more effective and more awake for your day and make you more ready for sleep at night. Keeping your room. Cool between sixty five and seventy five degrees is important. I've had the heck with time getting my husband and go with that one Erin and I'm like did you turn the air down. Did you turn the air down. I told you Menopausal I get hot. I don't like to sweat avoid blue light at nighttime. What is blue light will that you tell your television your screens your phone your IPAD? Whatever it is that you're looking at all those darn hours Avoid avoid that Brooke Elise right before bedtime. Give yourself an hour so out there. I have a little thing that pops up on my phone that tells me how many hours a week spent on. Oh my phone is distressing. I was up was up. Twenty seven percent this past week. What did I do on my phone? I don't know how about doing a little meditation meditation before bedtime prayer before bedtime being thankful spending some time to be thankful spending time breathing being member that five five ten five talked about five Bresciano. Hold it five second count to ten to let it out. Hold it for vice again. I said it wrong to begin with not vibrates in. It's one breath in that you hope for five seconds one breath in how I go. Tell you this it's count the five when you're breathing. Okay breathe in one two three four five hold it for five against breath out for count of ten hold it for five seconds out boy. I had a hard time explaining that. But this puts your brain in the mood for sleep as does rating rating will make you so sleepy and get tested for sleep. Apnea they say seventy percent the people with sleep apnea go on diagnosed. That's not a good thing. You're GONNA have terribly difficult time getting useful restorative sleep if you have sleep apnea in an ask your doctor after about supplements for sleep as I mentioned earlier dough tears breathe is good for sleeping. I take Melatonin ten. Milligrams I'm not telling you to do that. I'm just telling you I take Melatonin. Melatonin ten milligrams in it does help me. Lock also take magnesium now magnesium. We'll help you sleep. Check with your doctor before you take anything okay. A y'all got that. Don't come back and say you told me to take it because I did not but magnesium. I started taking it because I'm Vegan While I'm piscotty cheering because I do eat some on fish. And so sometimes you need to supplement with magnesium but magnesium is good for reducing migraines and. It's good to help you sleep in that kind of neat and you see baby oil before I go to sleep just to help with that process so those are just a few things that you can do to help. Get good restorative sleep in talked about being productive sleep and it's productive to sleep because when you get in that good sound sleep as we've talked about vote for your Automatic vacuum your brains Roomba comes on and claims your brain in. You need that so we've got to do all those things that Brian controls every bit of your body. Everybody your body answers to your brain and your brain answers to in response to every bit of your body so we got to keep the brain right healthy in the body healthy and one of the things we can do to keep the brain healthy is good quality sleep argue.
