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.

"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.

"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. Let's celebrate a thir taking care of everybody in that building and by protecting them by keeping all of us away. Let's celebrate that accept what it is? Look forward to changing. We can pray for our loved ones of where we do a lot of that so I got a prayer of the other day. If I can find it here let Sam will make a few clicking noise. I am in the process of becoming certified through the order of Saint Luke. It's a group to healing ministry and I very much like what they do Let me see Ya. I'm hoping I can find this prayer. That one of the priests wrote on his part of the order of Saint Louis Glitzy. Oh it's not there anyway. I just bearing much like here. It is here it is. I'm just GonNa read this to you. Maybe this will help you in the stress that you're feeling in this time in our lives time in our world and this time in your caregiving journey it's written by Father Nigel Mumford.

"Here is your host bestselling author Carol. Everyone I'm Carol. How welcome to. Let's talk dementia. Well today. We're GONNA talk about what everybody on. The planet is talking about Corona Virus. Oh my goodness is there a channel you can watch on TV or radio station? You can tune into or group of people who get together that don't talk about it. It's just it's what our world is all about. Well I am fifty nine years old. I think that's right While I will be this year and I never recall a time in my life. Wear anything like this has ever happened. Never I do remember when We were in looking for the the clocks to change over to the midnight hour for the year. Two thousand come in and everybody was freaking out with the computers. Due in the world would come to an end kinds of crazy stuff of course nothing like that happened. But that's as close to this kind of chaos in our world as I recall but sure enough. That's what we're dealing with. Well I know you're hearing everything don't do this. Don't do that and stay away from this and stay away from that and I'm not gonNa tell you all that stuff you've already heard fourteen times you don't need one more person telling you but I didn't WanNa put one thing in your brain that I want you to be very aware of in. Its don't don't talk about the virus. The Corona virus in front of your loved one with dementia. Don't do that. The last thing you need is for them to have negative thoughts on their mind. Negative thinking you want them to only have happy. Happy joy joy. You remember how we've talked about that before. That's what you want so I want you to spend your time in their time thinking about the happy. Happy parts of life in. They can't do that if their mind is full of the negative the scary the unknown the uncertainty that they are hearing from you that they're detecting from you in your voice in your thoughts and The way that you're behaving is probably a little different because there's some stress so don't bring that into their world. What we know is our loved. Ones don't remember squat deadly do I'll give you that. But what we do know is they are more likely to remember really really happy thoughts and really really negative thoughts now. The really really happy thoughts are not as likely to be remembered as the really really scary or negative thoughts. They will land on the brain and for some reason. I don't understand the reason of they will retain that information or more likely to retain that information then if they did not have it. So don't do that okay. Just just don't do that I had a conversation trying to find this year. As as you and I are having this conversation have a beautiful poem and I can't seem to get my hands on it right this minute. Where did it go about the Kuroda virus in a one to share it with? You may have to do that on another episode yet. Not Coming up but I do have something that was posted somewhere that I read. It said regarding all the things that we can't do can't do this. Don't get in crowds of more than the US. Stay ten feet away from people Blah Blah Blah with this came through on Somebody emailed at him. I think conversations will not be cancelled. Relationships will not be cancelled. Love will not be cancelled. Songs will not be cancelled. Reading will not be cancelled. Self Care will not be cancelled. Hope will not be cancelled. May We lean into the good stuff that remains. Do I hear an amen on that? I just thought that was really good telling you a husband are very glad that readings not cancel. 'cause we hit the Library Har- Yesterday boy picking up some books by authors. That we like are trying to use this time to I don't know reload and to relax and enjoy life as it is different for us now is different for everybody and I realize this time is probably even more difficult for you because of caregiving than it would have been had. You not been caregiving. But I don't know I still think in this time we can just breathe and remember that. Nothing's going to happen to you today. Where God has not already been and where he is not presently at also in his understanding. He didn't wake up. Oh my goodness I did not realize the crow virus is going to hit the United States. Water all those people come to or that it was going to hit China or anywhere else in all the planet. No no no. That didn't happen to the Lord. He no he knows and he is. He is a on that situation. He's in the middle of that situation in so hopefully that will bring you some peace. I hope I am. I am struck by several things lightly. One being our need to be understanding of other people to understand that their needs are different from ours and to be willing to reach out in ways other than with our hands. We have to reach out with our heart. That kind of came to on this poem that I told you Came through my friend and this is what it says. The poem called pandemic. What have you thought of it? As the Jews consider the Sabbath the most sacred of times safe from travel cease from buying and selling give up just for now on trying to make the world different than it is sing. Pray touch only those to whom you commit your life center down in win. Your body has become still reach out with your heart know that we are connected in ways that are terrifying and beautiful. You could hardly deny that now know that our lives are in one another's hands surely that is come clear. Do not reach out with your hands reach out your heart reaches out your words reach out all the tendrils of compassion that move invisibly where we cannot touch. Promise this world your love for better or for worse for sickness and in health so long as we all shall live in. That was written by Lynne. Unger and I'm GonNa tell you WanNa give it knowledge of where she is she is employed own. Goodness it's not coming up here. You universalist UNITARIAN church That's what it is in. Fort Myers Florida beautiful poem reaching out not with our hands but with our hearts now when you're caregiving you still got reach out your hands for sure. You GotTa make sure what's coming from. You is not fear you know. God is not the author of confusion. He does not live in fear he lives in peace in hope and joy love and mercy and kindness and all those wonderful things. And that's what we want to exude two votes with dementia. Because it's GonNa make your day better because they're going to be in a better mood so let's put our hope. Let's put our faith. Let's put our trust not in what's coming down from Washington any mandates. We might hear what we hear on the news reports or at the pool when we're talking to put out walking or wherever you might be but put our hope in him because that's the only hope we've got. Yeah that's the only one we can depend on. That's my thoughts for today so remember only happy happy joy joy in front of you folks with dementia. You'RE GONNA be glad you did all right.

"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.

"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 journey. Welcome to let's talk dementia. Here's your host bestselling author Carol. Hi I'm Carol Jalan welcomed. Let's talk dementia. I'm glad that you're here today. 'cause today I'm going to do a little preachy. Oh yes I am. I had something to happen. That's just stayed on my mind. Well I'm GonNa tell all my friends at. Let's talk dementia about it. So I have regularly posted on facebook. My show Four days a week and I post inspiring. Things are funny things. You're not GonNa read a post where I've ever had political comment or controversial comments. It's not my job. It's not what I'm called to do to be controversial and guess what you either but I had posted a scripture A scripture from one of my prayer cards. Let me see. Can I find that very rare card? Here sonal read it to you exactly Here is when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the rock. That is higher than I told. You guys have been going through some tough times with Passing and all the changes in my life. And it's it's just been tough and I posted that and I put a missing my Mama Verona I know you are too and Verona's my little sister she had earlier that day sent me a picture of mom in that. She was missing Mama so brought her into that conversation. Well I got a comment from someone. That was not nice it. It was just not nice and she was calling me out for having not tagged our other sister in that facebook post and she wrote. I'm sure she mentioned other sister. Is Missing Your Mama too and I wrote back. I'm sure she is but she ate on facebook. And yes I put ain't because she's not facebook. There was no need and tagging her because she never see it who do no good and it just turned into whole explosion of telling me how to grieve when someone is grieving. You are going to point your finger at them and correct. They're grieving. No you're not and if you do let me just tell you you're wrong don't do that. Grieving is hard work. You as a caregiver are grieving to a certain extent. It is a different grief. Then you will have after one passes but you're grieving did that. I know because day by day little by little you are losing your loved one involved in that. There's grief in doing things for them that you should never have to do. You should never have to claim. The bottom. End of your. They should be able to do that. Themselves scrape involved in that and as the dementia progresses the Greek changes evolves and increases in. The death comes the greatest different it. It's painful don't ever call someone out in their grief if you are watching this and you're not caregiving don't call out the person who is caregiving for not responding to live in the way you'd think they should cause honey. Todd you're not walking in their shoes. You do not know the grief burdened they are under. And if you don't know that you got no right Comu- when and this is true for all of us as we live in this planet on this planet in this world in interact with other people. You don't know what people are dealing with. You may look at someone and think man. That woman's got the best figuring. Her hair always looks good carries the newest purse. And she's got shoes with red cells. Which means you get the money right. She's got it going on. She makes six figures a year. She may go home and cry every night she may have disorders in her body that she wishes she didn't have. She may have dysfunctional families. We members may be terribly unhappy and putting on a good front. What she doesn't need from you is to be anything but loving. That's what we're called to do so that when we are down we will go to the rock that is higher than us. The God of our salvation but we can also pull on the strength of our friends and family but when they are cutting us down in sticking their fingers in our face telling us you're doing this wrong and you should do this and this is what I think about that. The Nets wrong. Don't do that other people in a few as my viewers or listeners. Doing that I'm disappointed in you. That's not who we are. That's not who we're called debate. It is just not we are to lift people up. We are to show them grace and mercy because we have been extended more grace in more mercy in more kindness more love than we'll ever be able to give out so. Why should we not be busy doing that? You got a long ways to go to catch up with what you've received so let's give it out. Will I unfolded and blocked everyone involved with that post? I do not need that kind of interaction in my world. I don't need that kind of heaviness in darkness landing on me. I need to fill up eight. I need to be fighting. The grief the stage going through the stages agreed not really fighting them but going through them but fighting the urge to stay in that grief. our pastor on our Ash Wednesday service taught by Jesus went into the Wilderness? But do you know what he did? He came out of the Wilderness. And I'm in an wilderness. Time I really am. I Miss My Mama. I miss being a daughter and I miss being her caregiver. Her really do. I miss other things that have changed in my life and I'm adjusting and adapting but I'm in a bit of a wilderness. You don't go to someone who's in a bit of a wilderness in reprimand him for being in the Wilderness. You just don't well. I told you I was gonNA preach and there's a preaching. I don't know who that's going to help today I hope it will help you. And I hope you'll never even know it helps you because I hope it will change someone's thought processes so that maybe they won't say to you. What maybe they could have saved if they had listened or or watch this episode. We gotTA BE GENTLE KIND PEOPLE. We gotTA show love and there are times. That's hard on. There's times we have to bite our tongue. But if you've got to bite your tongue in let's do that but if you are interacting with people who are consistently bringing you down think about the people you hang out with you can love them and pray for them but you don't have to let them interact with you in a way that is damaging to you and your mental health and your physical health and your wellbeing and that is also true of the people around you because when you're down you can bring them down in when you're down your loved one with dementia feels it so be careful about that. Anythi need stay off. Facebook might not be a bad idea. I post my show on facebook but I've just got to where that's all I do. Don't need negativity. I don't care who you want for. President don't care. I don't care why you don't want this win in why you do want that when I do not care all I care about is being uplifting and positive and blessing to those I made.

"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.

Think of things to talk to you about and Don't Ah share with you here. You go so today. We went to visit Arnie because yesterday Ernie fail again and he keeps forgetting that he can no longer walk and he really cannot but he forgets that he gets up and he falls in he hit his head and of course then a trip to the emergency room was in order. Because that's what we do when we hit our head we go make sure everything's Okay and and it was but Ernie is fixating on numbers. You guys had this happen with your loved. One there will be something the thing on their mind and they will fixate on that thing and it may be the same thing for several days or even several weeks or may change every day. Maybe something different. Ernie Ernie has always been very interested in numbers. I hadn't even thought about it too. My daughter reminded me today that she would ask how many people in this city. How many police police officers do they have? What color their cars? How many of the cars are white? How many cars are blue and just numbers? Numbers numbers have always been important to him. Well since cinches dementia has taken a turn in it did so because of urinary tract infection that we still don't have cleared up but numbers are just driving him crazy and therefore here for our SORTA Kinda driving us a little bit longer to because he will point at something in the room and he'll go you know how much that weighs. No Ernie. How much does it weigh? One hundred and sixty seven pounds. Everything's in the one forty two one sixty range no matter what it is and he said to me or do you know how John Les now. Ernie I'M GONNA guess she way hundred but in sixty two and he said in. This is how I know. I Love Ernie he said you a hundred and forty two right Carol. My goal my entire adult life. Life has been to a hundred and forty so yeah that made me feel pretty happy as yes Ernie. iway hundred forty two and he'll say my wheelchair one hundred sixty eight. It's heavy. I tried picking it up. Upped numbers numbers numbers. They are all in his brain. I wonder if one day they came in weighed him and they said him. Ernie you weigh one hundred sixty seven pounds which is about right and that's kind of what got it started for him but he can't get his mind off of it now you can say to him Ernie. No that will chair. Chair does not way hundred sixty seven pounds and Dow that. CD Player does not one hundred forty eight pounds. Because that's the other big thing in his life is just CD players. His best buddy in the world It does a CD player doesn't weigh about three pounds in your crazy. quit talking about numbers. You're driving his bankers talking about numbers. Now you can do. That is is not gonNa work real good for you but you can do that but what we want to do. Instead is just acknowledge what he's saying so when he says the CD player one hundred and forty two pounds on like that. That's pretty cool. I did not know a CD player way that much. Do you like your CD player. What kind of music do you like while Ernie's always gonNa tell you? He likes Wanda Jackson. HOPE HE S. I had never heard of until recently. But she is Country Artists from years. Back guess like maybe the fifties and he loves. CBS wanted Jason Music. And he'll say I like wanted Jackson. Well let's listen to one Jackson so we'll get one to Jackson to playing and maybe for two or three minutes. Arnie will quit talking about numbers. Or maybe not. Maybe he's going to keep talking about them and if he does you either going to have to leave the room and not have have that conversation because you feel like you're in might explode and you're worn out or you're just GonNa have that conversation in whatever form you decide to take it and you you can say something about numbers like I went to the grocery store and had to weigh my bananas. Might how much do you think my bananas Wade and get him to talking about something else. Besides his wheelchair and his how much he weighs in how much you buy you know rob his world of numbers. So it's very interesting but what we are. Learning learning to is as we visit with. Ernie Is Our visits. Need to be a little shorter than we had planned for them to be Because 'cause it's very exhausting for my husband It's very emotional. Time for my husband as you understand and I do too. Because he is watching his brother decline very rapidly rapidly and sustain for long visit Jaaz wipes Michael Ow in when he comes home while he's not locked on to be with. You know what I mean and so I'm like maybe maybe we need to have shorter visits more often in that helps Ernie to and then you've got to eyeballs laying on early more times rather than a long visit for fewer days. So we've kind of adjusted things there have also made it. My mission to go with my husband is many times as I can for a couple reasons one when my sweet mama was going through her journey my husband with the every day and there were times when I couldn't could go when he went by himself to visit my mom because he loved her and so I am returning that favorite for my husband. Go with him as he visits Ernie but having someone one else that Michael can talk to while while he's visiting Ernie is a relief for him so we can talk about some things have different conversations that might spark a train of thought for Ernie in. That's been good one thing. I did today for Ernie as I have discovered that he is getting his wheelchair and going down the hall. Now I gotTa Tell You stop operate here in Italian if dementia not the craziest thing on the planet. I don't know what is when Ernie was in memory no in assisted living and he had some dementia but but nothing really that affected life. Much at all. Very early stages He sat in his room all day. Long he got out to go to breakfast lunch and dinner and he never left his room. Okay we moved him to memory care now where his dementia has progressed. Quite a lot and we would like for him to stay in his rhyme in sit in his wheelchair. You're listening to his music. But Oh no now he has to get out and push that wheelchair all over the community and uh they get to go find him Yesterday we found him laying in the bed ahead in someone else's room. Yup that will that happens a lot in memory care. That's okay. We're not worried about it. And today he was way down another hall in memory care and that's okay because he was still again the safe locked building but but I'm thinking I wish he would just stay in his room like he used to do but it is a constant change with Ernie Arne way we never know what to expect with him. But we're trying to deal with. But what I did for him today because he is leaving his room and then not able to find find his room his name is not on the door and there's nothing to go. This is our newsroom except for the room number which someday he remembers and some days he he doesn't know how that goes outside his door. I posted oh seven or eight. Five seven pitchers just a small pictures from Ernie's pass in. There's pictures of Ernie when he was I don't know maybe middle school pictures of him with his mom on pictures of him with his brother pitchers of our daughter when she was eighteen months months old because he can relate to that Pictures of him with his Ford fairlane from the nineteen sixties that he can relate to so when he comes bindi any sees that door he sees that those pictures. I'm hoping he'll go. Oh that's me. That's my Mama and maybe he'll go in that door rather other than the door down the hall as somebody else in. But we don't freak out about those things folks that's what memory cares for. It is not unusual to find people sleeping together. Do not even know each other. They just happen being the same time. It's bad it's okay. Don't get upset about it. Just don't let it go. There are other things in your world. You need to be more concerned about than that life is interesting. This dementia caregiving journey is always changing involving in. Just about the time thing you think life has settled out. We're going to ride this way for a little bit. You get the phone call. That tells you Ernie fail and he's in the hospital. You just never know and I know you understand that but I hope that with this show you get tips that Either make you giggle with me or at me and I'm happy for whichever way That goes as long as you get ling but something that will help you in your caregiving journey as you realize what you're dealing with.

"carol saint" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia

"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. Oh there's not a bunch of people there 'cause I like to put on my music from the fifties and the sixties and walk too that beet to make sure I get my steps in you guys have a good day blessings smiles.

"carol saint" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia

"Welcome to let's talk dementia hero Hallel your host and. I'm glad you're joining me today. I am recording a couple episodes. All on the same day I got a little bit behind taking in some time off for the holidays normally would go change shirts so you would think record among different days but I just decided it is just not worth the effort so so if you're listening to this then you of course don't know you don't care but if you're watching this you're thinking she same shirt on yesterday new right ideas but anyway anyway of God to do today. So I thought I'd give some of these shows done in advance and hopefully something. Data's going to help you. Well I want to talk to you about this particular item on holding. And for those of you that are listening to this. What I have here is a shoulder pad that was given to me by a friend whose wife had gone through every stage of Alzheimer's type dementia? This shoulder pads says on it. Police call the police. They are holding they are holding holding me captive. The other side says please call the police. my father I can't read it anymore. I it it used to say. My father beats me On a shoulder pat. He came at me. And I'm like okay. There's a story here. How about telling me why WII giving it to me and the story behind it well? It was very disturbing In hard for him his wife at that point like I said was living in the last stages of Alzheimer's in they were living living together she was remember care. He was insistent and they moved there. Because that particular event had happened that surrounded that shoulder pad so his wife was very good about getting up in the middle of the night wandering around the house and he had put all kinds of locks on the doors up high where she couldn't reach them so she couldn't get out and wander down the road and them not know where she was and he did all these precautions to protect our but one one night he woke up she was nine the bed. He cannot find her wear issue and she gone in the basement and she was in a closet and she had shut herself south in the closet and she found somewhere along the way a sharpie. I don't know how that came to be and this shoulder pad was in a coat coat that was in that closet and she took it out and she wrote on that shoulder pad the things that were going on in her mind. Now why would she. They call the police. I'm being held captive. My father is beating me when you see when she was a little girl. Her father did beat her very frequently. It must have been too horrific existence. Then he would lock her in the closet and she would have to stay in that calls it until so he decided she could come out and from what I understood. That could even be a day or so. He would just labor locked in the closet so when she awoke that particular humor night in the middle of the night She was so far back in time. That that's what she thought was going on. And she made her way to the basement uh-huh and locked herself in the cost. Now that is just an incredibly sad story and it sounds like something. I'm making up but I promise you this really. They happened and this was given to me as a result the the shoulder pad but to think that white she was going through at that point in her life was so horrific I tell you you don't know what people are dealing with every day You look at people in you seem you think that just got the world handled it. Life is good. They look great. I look at them and they. They don't need to lose weight happy for them in their beautiful too and I pretty much hate people like like that. But you don't know what they're dealing with in this lady on top of dealing with Alzheimer's and being confused was back in a time in her her life. That was a horrific time of her life. Now you remember with Alzheimer's we lose our memories in the reverse order in which we gained them him so we are sitting here in your ear. Two Thousand Twenty. So those memories are GonNa be Lost in that reverse order. So we'RE GONNA lose two two thousand ten and then we're going to lose two thousand five and then we're glues nineteen ninety the nineteen seventy to nineteen sixty go backwards. So I don't know what year was that her or Dad Was horrifically awful to her. But that's how far back life in history that she had traveled. That's where she was living in her brain and it was an awful time of her life as if Alzheimer's wasn't bad enough but to land at a point in your life where you were being abused in mistreated so so awful. I mean award it just it toward a heart out for her. I can taste yeah. She was not easy to get along with. When I would visit her memory care I would drink owning? I'm just being honest with you. Because she was angry. She was very uncooperative. I don't care what food you gave her. She didn't like it. I don't care what Song you're saying. She didn't like it. Nothing made her happy and when her husband has been visited it did not make her happy because she did not any longer know who she not was. She was that far back in time she was way past the time from which which they had met she was a young girl but then when I realized learned her story my heart got a little more sympathetic towards her so I kept trying trying to reach her and to be to be accepting of where she was but I can tell you what she didn't want. She did not want to be touched. An I'm touchy feely girl. You know I wanNA hold your hand and rub your shoulder stroke your face. Do you think she wanted someone coming towards her to touch her. No because to her. You're coming towards her to her her. That's where she was in her life. Being aware of that in your loved one. Hopefully you know their story on. If you don't you need to find it out from someone who can share with you or if you're caregiving in a professional setting knowing the store that person your caregiving. Four what did they deal with in their early life as a child. Maybe they had abusive husband Whatever I had a client that went through AUSHWITZ yeah life was different from her that anything I could imagine but knowing bad it changed how I responded to her and her interaction action with me was changed because of it. Knowing about your person your it's important changes your caregiving journey. You know this is true for whoever whoever you're dealing with when you go into the grocery store and you're cashiers just a little bit of a mode you know sling in your eggs down the conveyor belt and you're thinking truck up you're gonNA break my eggs it well maybe instead of saying back the truck up you're gonNA break my eggs. We might need to respond in a kinder way with. Let me move those eggs for you. Are you having a good day to he died. How's your day been? It might just cut the anxiety in that tension right in half and they might take breath and relax a little bit. I tell you something I've been doing when I go to wall or I don't like go into Walmart. I'm sorry sorry Walmart. I just don't like him but I have to go. Sometimes I call my cashier by nine. They've got this big name tags on that name tag is not there just to you know. Keep their Bra in place while they cook into their shirt. No so you'll know there nine nine call her name in if you go. Hi Anna how are you. Hi Suzy Hi John. You would be surprised at how they they stopped all of a sudden like Gosh they call me by name. I'm a person I'm a real human being not just someone that's ringing up groceries or your purchase columbine it says little things we do in our life life that makes a difference yes it is learning about your people being kind of them and realizing that they are living in a different time and place than you are in maybe trying to understand what that time in place is can change their their world changers to we don't want to happen like this shoulder pad with please call the police on being held captive said story all right. Well I hope you have a good day. Hope that you will share joy. I hope that you will receive joy.

"carol saint" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia

"Unless you chosen to join me on another episode of Talk Dementia Well. This show is being released on December. Twenty two thirds. I bet you can guess what we're GONNA talk about. Well what I hope to do on this episode is just to give you a few last minute tips. That might help. Make your Christmas business a better time. You know what you're not going to have is you're not GonNa have Norman Rockwell Christmas. You know how I know that because they don't exist ask no one's ever had a Norman Rockwell Christmas including Norman Rockwell. Speaking of did you know. Norman Rockwell had Alzheimer's. He sure did so his family understands what you're going through in. So do I said let's talk about a few things that you can do. That might make that day before before the day of the day after whenever it is you're GonNa get your whole family together or maybe he's GonNa be a very small Christmas but what you can do to make that more successful and specifically we're gonNA talk about not eating too much and scotch tape. What not eating too much scotch tape? Well well too much is what we're going to talk about too much food too. Much Scotch tape so too much food. You know the holidays you know. They're all around how much we can eat how much we can drink. I don't drink at all so it's kind of boring for me But all those things that we put in our body but the Snuggie a plan for us we shouldn't do that. We've talked about that in abundance in the past but I want to remind you not to load up. Your dog wants play. If you take their plate you just pilot up with the. It's going to being very overwhelming for them. I don't care if they really do love. Every single item on the plate. Their brain is having a hard time comprehending and processing all all that food in one spot and all those colors all that. Wha what do I do with it. So let's take a colored plate preferably coloured plate that has divided sections in it the way when you use the spoon and you scoop it up and you hit the edge of that divided section. It helps to get the vote on the spooner on the fork. It works well. But we're only GONNA put two maybe three items on the plate depending where they are in their journey. And we'RE NOT GONNA put more than may be a half cup of that item on the plight light. We're not loading up with this huge big serving of Turkey and dressing members. Also all that stuff but just a little bit of two or three things now. That doesn't doesn't mean they can't have refills in that. Those refills can't be the same thing or different things that's fine but just don't overwhelm them with too much. The alright what about too much scotch tape. What did that have to do anything? Well we always WANNA set our loved ones up for success. Isn't that what you wanted. Wanted Your Life. You don't want folks putting you in positions where you're GONNA fail. You ought to be successful in great and everything you do. And that's what we want for. Our loved ones wants the more successful. They feel the better. They're gonNA feel the better. You'RE GONNA fail. You see how this is a winning proposition. So what what we WANNA do is we'll before we present them with their wrapped gift go head rapid. That's just normal. That feels good to them. But don't love that little jewel up with Scotch tape on every single angle image. That's just a frustration. Waiting to happen what I would do was when you fall down those edges put one piece of metal. Those in pieces may a flap in the wind. But we don't care because that gives a great place for them to grab holding tire and outcomes the president in. Yeah they were successful but if you tape every every day on and they can't get it open then all of a sudden they can't even open president. How frustrating is that? And that's how they're gonNA feel so. Don't do that. Okay I did. Another too much is noise. Let's not have too much noise in the house. Heat that to a minimum Family member that noise is amplified many times. Sometimes it's just irritating. I can tell you my momma with us. We were too damn loud so keep that in mind and another another thing of to his to tire. Make sure that you don't allow your window get too tired because if that happens as probably your fault you might should've in in her active or intercede there to allow them opportunity to rest now if they refused arrests. There's nothing you can do about that. Then it's not your fault. You didn't do anything wrong. But you want to allow that opportunity for maybe a quiet time for even just half hour for them just to chill out maybe in the back bedroom And maybe just maybe you you want to sit beside them or have somebody sit beside him so they won't feel alone now if there had you're having this event at their assisted living or In the at the House that live live in and they can go to their ruined. Seems comfortable to them. They may be fine by themselves. But if you hold them over you know over the river through the woods to somebody else's house and you put them in around that they're not used to by themselves and you leave them at might not be comfortable so keep that in mind. All we want to do is to come through this with a memorable double experience. It's not going to be perfect. MIND WON'T BE YOURS WON'T Bay and I know this because my never has been in either as yours in neither will mine and neither will yours is just it goes.

"carol saint" 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.

"Feels like for your loved one so you're taking them from their place of comfort the house they are in every day or this is the memory care or wherever to some other place in. It's very uncomfortable. So you got to think about that. But if if they're able to go and it's right that that travelling in that inner change between one one location other is still something they can handle in their journey. Then let's let's go but let's prepare our folks to know where mom is says in her dementia journey. It may have been a year since they saw her. Maybe it was last is Thanksgiving or last Christmas and they are expecting her to be like she was then and she may not be in. You need to ahead of time. You have in phone calls or emails or Heaven Forbid we should ride a ladder And get that information out. This is where mom is now. She probably won't recognize denies you She may not eat. Well she may need to take a nap just to Four Warrant Your folks that this is going on so so you get the to the new location. Please be aware that your loved one Might be a little overwhelmed and just the whole change of atmosphere is going to be overwhelming to them now. This is true even if folks are coming to the home that they're used to being in having all all these people in a little bit overwhelming. And you know this you love for your family to come for Thanksgiving but what do you love next when they leave uh-huh because you're not used Avin fifty nine people in your house. All of them want to eat at the same time is a little overwhelming for units definitely overwhelming for votes with dementia. So no matter where we are if we're at their home or where they live and we're taking their someone taking them somewhere. We WanNa make sure that there is a quiet spot for them so that after an hour hour and a half where you can judge it you pay attention to that person. Listen you realize. They're a little bit overwhelmed. I think I'm going to take him. Maybe let them take nap. And don't take them into the bedroom that they've never been to before and helping to lie down down and turn off the light leave. There might be frightened because they don't know where they are. What's going on again? Remember your Japan and you don't know anything you've never been to Japan before you might just want to sit there with them and If they WANNA talk talk or maybe they just want you to put on some soothing music and maybe sing quietly in the background or maybe they just want you to sit by the bed or lie on the bed with them and hold their hand so they feel comfortable and they can relax and then maybe once they doze off if you want to slide out and go have some conversation. That'll be fine but be aware when they wake up. They're not GonNa know where they are. So you've got to constantly be checking on them in making sure that they are okay with what's going on but allow that quiet space. Make sure that your family knows that you are going to to fix MOMS played in a way that will be acceptable for her brain. You know they may come in and load up one of everything that's been fixed in their pike. Looks it's a little bit like Mount Everest in you're gonNA fix moms play with maybe two or three bites of three or four things in. That's all or maybe just three everything's or maybe just one thing it depends on where your loved one is in their journey that you want to keep things simple but if there's a plate with a whole a bunch of things on it and they look at it is just overwhelming so there's just Turkey and it's cut up in little pieces. They can eat with their fingers. That's a thumbs up when they've finished the Turkey may be then we want to add green beans But you can judge how many items to put on the plight with your log on but you never wanna load their play it. It is overwhelming to the brain and the brain looks at. It doesn't know which direction to go so you know what we do. We pull back and we don't eat and you won't people to enjoy join meals. I mean this is something we do we eat together. It is part of every society. We always eat together when we can and especially at Thanksgiving or holidays. Today's or birthdays. Whatever so let your folks? No I'M GONNA fix MOMS Pie. I know what she likes. And I'm going to put on her plate. The amounts that will appeal appealed to her so that potentially she will eat. I just want you to know this in advance and then another thing you might want to do is to help those who are coming to visit knowhow to respond and interact with mom. Should they call her by her name. How do they go and get conversation going? And that's what we're GonNa talk about tomorrow. 'cause I can tell you for quite a while I didn't call my Mama Mama a powder veer gene and there was a very good reason for that and we're talk about that tomorrow excuse me and How to physically interact and ask our loved ones in guest interact with our votes with dementia? That will make Thanksgiving and Christmas. Or whatever were your holiday might be a more joyful and wonderful occasion and I look forward to that. So I'll see you tomorrow and we're GONNA talk Thanksgiving little bit early because I want. Oh you to be prepared in just in case you think you need to bring Turkey to my house now. I don't eat Turkey. Tofu Turkey now. That would be good to my. You should think about that for me. You guys have a great day bye bye. 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. Hello hello everyone is well. Let's talk dimension. I am glad you're here today now. I promised you that this episode would be a joint episode interview view with Mr Surry Surry Kalari of Bank of America and I did the interview. It was such a good interview Hugh so easy to talk to and I learned a a lot of things that I was excited to share with you guys and when I went to produce the episode it was full of the largest amount of static. You've ever heard in your life not static echo and I am working very hard to try to get rid of that Echo. Will you ever hear that interview. I don't know still got this Bul on my nut my head here where I got hit by stuff falling off the shelf but it sailing up pretty quickly. It looks like I should clean my face. Doesn't it well. I hope you had a good the caregiving a few days is I'm recording this. You is on Sunday so you'll see it on Monday some. You've had a weekend and hope your weekend was enjoyable and not threaten threaten not too many stressful things thrown at you. Life has a way of doing that even without dementia. Doesn't we'll just want to pick up where we left off talking more about Alzheimer's and today when talk about medications We were talking about. How effective are drugs that are currently being prescribed typed for Alzheimer's type dementia specifically well? The current a`drug affect the fact of the current drugs is quite minimal Some folks actually did worse on the drugs and others Some folks had all kinds of gastrointestinal issues especially with air Air Step is a colon. Colin Ashtrays inhibitor. And it has a tendency to cause gastrointestinal issues. Now I've been telling you that I've been learning about your gut health in how your guts culture second brain. Some doctors call it your first brain that this is actually your second because so much of what goes on here. Starts Arts down down there in her gut and so- gastrointestinal issues are not your friend. They cause problems for your entire body but the era set dispassionately caused upset stomach for a lot of people and so then they've got a patch of Oh Heck was the name Matt other medicine. I can't even remember that. It really was a good thing since the transdermal application of it by using it as patch lowered lowered the number of instances of some issues and then there's Namibia's generally was started anywhere from from three to four or five months after era set because they believe these two drinks came together synergistically and They were just a good combination together together and so much so that Oh gosh several years down the road. They combine those two drugs into one now. All that just sounds wonderful. Full doesn't it and it sounds way more wonderful than it is because it's my dog barking. We don't know that these drugs have helped at all They they give false. Hope people think. Oh Yeah we're taking some drugs and I've got to do something. There's gotta be a way to stop this disease. Let's take these medicines but they're not really being proved to do too much it does seem that At the best you get a bit of an increase in ability for a short short period of time but the the decline starts again. I talked to with Dr Laurie you are who endorsed my booklets. Talk Dementia available available on Amazon Amazon. Mbuso about my mom whether I should keep her on the air sept- Amanda Gosh a couple of years ago and his feeling was if it wasn't making her sick causing her any problems to leave her on it because they do sometimes say that when votes come off the medication after having been on it for a while that they have a drastic decline. And you never get back to where you worse. You can't say well if we have declined kind will go off and go back to where we were. That doesn't happen so he said as long as she has a quality of life where she can still communicate and Eight eight and a half Participation live in some degree. He's let's just leave it along so we don't know what's going to happen and that's concerning to when you think about. You don't know what's going to happen when you come off of a medication. I don't know the whole thing is just kind of crazy. So anyway drugs are being studied to that will remove platform the brain. Some of them are successful. Some of them once the plaque was removed from the Brian Beta amyloid plaque. You would think that would reverse the damage. It does is not in fact in some studies it made it worse so who knows I think in Japan or China somewhere not close to me. A drug is being developed from Seaweed which I thought was very interesting because you know I'm this natural girl and that kind of piqued my interest a little bit but the problem with the drugs is you've got to think with Alzheimer's it's not just one little problem we've got going on the brain the brain his being eaten. All areas of the brain are being destroyed little by little by little by little for they say twenty to thirty years before even know. There's a symptom awesome now. Think about that. There's a lot of damage is gone on before the symptom much less the damage that goes on after December rooms are very evident after the diagnosis. This is so we have lots of holes that the example given to me was to think about a bucket that had thirty six holes in it. Thirty six is just a random number and you only had one patch. You can fix that one hole. But that's all you gonNa fix and right now what they're looking towards. What do we do about Beta amyloid more plaque? Or what do we do about tile. But what about other things that are causing Alzheimer's and can we fix all those other things so it is a large problem album But what we are learning and this is the mazing in hopeful part for me and I reiterate this with you I will continue to do. So is statistically mystically only five percent of the people who have Alzheimer's have a genetic form of Alzheimer's early onset that means ninety five percent of US have Alzheimer's that is most likely brought on by environment. Or what we're doing to our bodies are not doing to our bodies what we are putting in our bodies or what we are not putting in our bodies. Are we exercise. Are we eating right. I sound like a broken record. I know but I really want you to get this The thing is we've got to change our mindset. We've got to start doing those things that will help. Bring Health to us because right now now. There is no medication to stop Alzheimer's too slow Alzheimer's to improve symptom of Alzheimer's quite honestly the medications. We have do squat and many many people are just not even using them at all but they are making the pharmaceutical pharmaceutical companies. Quite a lot the money even in their generic forms which I think most of them have gone generic by now. It's a very frustrating thing but I want you to be hopeful and instead instead of thinking drugs think healthy eating. Thank plant based foods Today we had our launch and We she had chemo. Patty's very good and I saw Tate Kale and I told you I use Bagan as a topping or was the word I can't an Aku Germont mccutcheon for our food so after I cook the Kale in some coconut oil a sprinkle got some bacon. Bits and some sunflower seeds with pepitas seeds in a love. But pita have you had that also good p. e. p. I T. as concedes are so good for Y'all please handful of seats influence everyday but we had the Kale cooked with garlic salt in coconut oil oil some Bacon bits and the pita seeds. Even my husband said this is good. He didn't go. Is this at grainstuff again. Which I was very pleased about So he had that and We had some leftover mashed potatoes. Donate a lot of a white potatoes in this house. But we did Have some white some white mashed potatoes. White potatoes mashed mashed potatoes. Nordahl going on because my husband had been sick for a couple of days and I thought that would make you feel better but earlier earlier or after that I decided you know I need something for dessert. Why are we gonNA have so? We had peanut butter that stirred raw oatmeal into in put some craisins in and a little bit of the sweet leaf liquid. Stevia started altogether. You do that you will come and go girlfriend stuff is good and and you can just eat it with its happy happy. So there's you something to think about cooking. I'll be going this weekend checking out some farmers markets in my area. Because we don't talk about eating organic. Oh Yeah you just need to do that. Expensive but being sick and she. I hope you've learned something that might change your mind about medications might not. That's okay it's the risk you take but I hope it will definitely change your mind about how you eat and how you move your body and We're GONNA talk about that more and I'm going to hope that I get that interview figured out so I can show it to you from Bank of America. The wonderful work the things they're doing to help us learn and to be more prepared and to take care of their employs think a lot of employers could learn from them.

"carol saint" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia

"Here's your host bestselling author Carol. Welcome to let's talk dementia. Thank you for joining me today. I wasn't sure some of you would come back after I started all my lectures about the things we should meet and shouldn't do but here you are again in. That tells me you want to be the best you can be and you want to be the best caregiver for L. O.. Your loved one. Well I told you you emma last episode. My husband and I went for walk in wore the wrong shoes and ahead blisters on the same foot with that was incorrect. I had four four blisters every I tow except the big toe not happy feet. You can bet I won't do that again now. I'll go for walks whole. Yeah you see when we go out and walk. We Talk Doc. We decompress. We enjoy the sun coming up the sun going down if he gets home in time. It's good for our relationship. It's good for our brain. It's good for our body Johny. We spoke in some vitamin C.. which allows us to absorb vitamin D. N. B. Orient good stuff? But I wear the right shoes next time the today. I want to continue our discussion about things that we can do to prevent Alzheimer's way as right now cannot cure Alzheimer's. Oh Oh how I hope those words change yes. We won't to one day cure Alzheimer's but better yet. Why don't we prevent Alzheimer's because if we you don't ever have anyone get Alzheimer's been we don't have to curate correct? Well I think it's interesting to talk about again. Inflammation Mation in what inflammation does to the body and in the brain we have inflammation you can't see and the word implementation comes from the term that main set on fire. The the Latin word elite was Latin. Winning look much it was it Latin or Greek. Hold on. I'M GONNA give it to you right. He flat and work set on fire. Hires you've got this fire. Burning in the brain of someone who has inflammation in their brain. And if your loved one has alzheimers or many or really I guess any cognitive issue than their Smith formation. Going on pretty much. If you're breathing you've got information in your body and we don't want that we want to get rid of it. There are four hundred hundred miles. Four hundred miles of blood vessels in the brain. And I don't know where you live if you WANNA figure out from your point to some other state or some other point where four hundred miles is a we. My husband and I just moved seven hundred one miles from South Carolina so that's server half way that number of miles of blood vessels in your brain. An unhealthy lifestyle causes inflammation in the lining of the arteries in the capillaries Larry's in the vascular damage results. Even in the brain. So you've got to think about what's going on in the brain there that's is affecting the overall health of the brain in water you going to do to promote the health of your brain so who is at risk of inflammation in the brain. Anyone with right now. That does let a few of the people I know out. What about you know some people? They are never going to have inflammation in their bankers. They they don't have one now. You know mess with you really. Not you need to know that. The changes in the brain for someone with Alzheimer's numbers began thirty to forty years before any symptom ever occurred. It's like with cancer. You don't all of a sudden just wake up with a lump or you don't just all of the sun wake up with bruising that started the night before no is starting months and months maybe years before in enough damage cells changed in the the body that it came forth as a lump in the breast or bruises that we can't explain in the same as with off timers. That disease has been eating away. It'll be here little bit their little more in their little more their whole bunch here a great day bunch here until finally the symptoms become evident everyday life. That happens happens thirty to forty years before symptoms. But we don't wait and want to wait until symptoms show up. It might be too late especially for some some of our folks that are excellent actors actresses. They are covering themselves well their spouses or covering for the other spouse just making amends making making sure everything goes smooth that person so that no one knows that. Mary has a problem. John's covering for Mary happens a lot so and also. We can't chance. Start being proactive or prevent taking preventative measures too early. We're just talking about your body and you only get one I. Oh I don't care how many times you get Leszek Surgery. My phone just baked. You still have that same body in the inside of it is the same outside. Might look different. But you've not changed the inside of your body and we need to make those internal changes you need to know. The Alzheimer's is not a disease of old age. No it's not. There is this thing called early onset. Alzheimer's has been diagnosed in people's early in their twenties. Can you imagine that. And and you think what your loved one is going to at the age of seventy or eighty is horrible and it is passionate at twenty. Oh my goodness you know it. Can it actually actually starts in our folks who were diagnosed with late onset onset Alzheimer's which is people diagnosed after age of sixty five before the age of sixty. Five Live is early onset but remember is started years and years before that so when the Brian starts changing is when the disease starts. So we've got to be proactive active where we should be from the beginning. And that's very important in how you are feeding your children the examples that you are setting for your children your grandchildren altern as far as moving and being interactive social activities. What they're doing for others? It stimulates their brain and their sense of wellbeing. All of this. This is important. How much sleep they're getting? Yeah did you know. Even what the mother eats has an effect on the diseases of the unborn child. You knew that that's why when you got pregnant if you're watching this show. Yeah if you got pregnant Your doctor told you donate fats. Don't drink caffeine. Don't do alcohol kinds of stuff. Be careful what you ingest because it affects the baby you got to think about what you ingested affects the baby physically that includes the Brian so is is kind of scary. When you think of all that has gone on in our lives that we cannot correct it or Canley? Well we can't change it. It's already happened but maybe we can correct it. Can we make these changes in Our lifestyle incorrect. What's going on in our gut correct what's going on in our heart correct? What's going on in the brain? Absolutely yes. Listen that's the good news. That's why I told you this whole class series that went to the doctor promoter. Gave me such hope. Mama had Alzheimer's Grandma had Alzheimer's Alzheimer's care all doesn't want Alzheimer's and I know you don't either. But you've got to do the right things. So one in four on folks has prediabetes diabetes or type two diabetes and they haven't increased risk of Alzheimer's so there again what we're eating we're putting in. Our body has a direct connection with fat belly. Fat they say belly fat equals brain damage because that is affecting your brain. So we're going to in our next episode. Talk about what we can do to prevent Alzheimer's Some of it is simple. Some of it is a little more complicated. But it's all worth worth the effort we're GONNA put into it but I wanted to lead up to this helping you to understand how important it is. Because if I'm GonNa get you to throw away your ice cream to French fries. The French fries gotta give French fries you can do like I do when I go out to eat or four French fries. I'll say please bring me four four French fries. That's all. Don't bring us I've Domremy. A plane of whatever you do. I'm like an alcoholic ABC store just bring four French fries in. It sought settles for me that I don't want to be in for several months. But what she ate in what you're doing for your body. I'm hoping you won't be willing to make some theory import changes. I want you to live out enough long long enough and in good hail so you can drive your kids crazy in a good way you can drive them crazy about wanting to do things with them by wanting to go the eat within by wanting to travel with them. I want to tell them what to do. Because that's your job. I don't want you to live to old age miserable. Not Not knowing who you are not knowing who they are not. That's not what I want for UNICEF. Not What I want for me. So let's work together. The onboard board. Let's make this happen. We'll talk about that Tamar.
