Dr. Rachel Dolan Discusses The Antipsychotic Drug Epidemic

"Welcome to the healthcare policy podcast on the host David Intra. Kosovo. With me today Dr Rachel Dolan the US House of Representatives ways and Means Committee majority staffer to discuss the majority staffs recently released report titled Under enforced and over prescribed. ANTIPSYCHOTIC drug epidemic ravaging America's nursing homes. Dr Dole and welcome to the program. I David thanks so much for having me. Please call me Rachel. While this'll be the last time Dr Dolan's bio is posted on, of course, the podcast website. In testimony before the House Energy and Commerce Committee two, thousand seven, the FDA's Dr David Graham stated quote. Unquote. Fifteen thousand adults elderly people in nursing homes are dying each year from the off label use of antipsychotic medications. For an indication that the FDA knows the drug doesn't work the problem has been only FDA for years and years close quote. Legal the FDA does provide a black box warning label. Regarding off label use of these drugs, eleven years later, Human Rights Watch published a report titled They Want Docile. How. Nursing homes in the US overmedicated people with dementia. The report found in two thousand, sixteen, seventeen quote unquote massive use or abuse of Anti Psychotics, for example, Sarah. Quel. Doll and Rispler doll that have serious side effects including sudden cardiac death. The human rights report estimated in an average week over one hundred, seventy, nine, thousand, long-stay Nursing Home Facility patients who administered antipsychotic drugs. Without a diagnosis which the drugs are indicated or approved rover, polar disorder and schizophrenia in testimony the ways and means. Committee. Heard this past November Richard Mollet Executive Director of the Long Term Care Community coalition concluded quote the use of San Anti psychotics in skilled nursing facilities is so extensive that puts the US in violation of internal conventions and covenants on torture and cruel inhumane and degrading treatment or punishment. Close quote. This is my third related interview. In December twenty twelve I discussed the topic with Diana Zuckerman. And in February, eighteen high interviewed Hannah Lamb who authored the above mentioned human rights report. With me again to discuss the ways and means report just released titled Under enforced and over prescribed is Rachel Dolan the reports lead author. So that Rachel as background let's get right into this or immediate neatly into the specifics of the report. What did the report find regarding the extent to which? They're persists overuse or misuse of anti psychotics in skilled nursing. David. So the report showed what what you what we would expect from your introduction, which is the use of antipsychotic does persist in nursing homes across the country and it remains quite high and not of course, has implications for patient safety and and health We found in the fourth quarter of Twenty nineteen approximately twenty percent of all skilled nursing facility residents in the US. So that's about two, hundred, Ninety, eight, thousand, six, hundred, fifty people every week received some form of antipsychotic medication and most of that was without any psychosis diagnosis for which these drugs are indicated So specifically, we actually looked at trends and surveyor citations for unnecessary medication use in nursing home. So that's kind of the. Part of this study and what we found was a clear change in citation rates for these facilities between the change in administrations from the Obama Administration to trump administration So we found citations for antipsychotic misuse in sniffs increased by two hundred percent between twenty, fifteen, twenty seventeen but then declined by twenty two percent from two thousand, seventeen to twenty eighteen, and importantly a ten percent of citations associated with actual harm or immediate jeopardy to a residence health or safety. So those are some of the most severe citation surveyors ever capture resulted in no fine from twenty seventeen to twenty eighteen under the trump administration. So you know. I. Would say even though this study in particular couldn't determine causation we we did see a clear association between the Trump Administration's regulatory rollback campaign twenty, seventeen, twenty eighteen and a reduction in citations for these particular drugs. Okay thank you and we'll get into the trump administration's regulatory decisions in this regard in a minute let me just ask as a follow up or an aside question and I don't think I saw this new report. So you may not have these numbers top of mind but worth asking, can you give an approximation of the cost? To the Medicare program at least relative to the overuse I, mean, this is a massive amount of money in reimbursement for these medications. I don't remember offhand. Let's see I think in the in the actually in the report we got About one third of older adult Medicare part d enrolling with dementia who spent more than one hundred days in a nursing humber prescribed antipsychotic in two, thousand, twelve constituting roughly three, hundred, sixty, three, million part D plan payments that year and of course, there's also cost associated with hospitalizations for inappropriate use of these drugs So I would expect you know that that that is obviously very under an understatement understated estimate that does not capture the full realm of payments. So it's it's fairly substantial.

The Looming Eviction Crisis

"Kathy Seeker is fifty five. She lives in an apartment that she rents in Camden South Carolina with her husband before the coronavirus pandemic, Cathy was working multiple jobs. She ran the cafe at a bookstore and she also worked as a server at a restaurant, but the pandemic would shut down both of those workplaces and in March Kathy started a new job at an assisted living facility working with dementia patients she likes to work, but it only pays twelve dollars an hour and overtime pay is not available to her so when I took the new job for my career. It then sent our rent back. Months just months, I don't make enough money to support myself. My husband had a stroke at forty four years ago so he's not able to work. By August Kathy had fallen thousands of dollars behind on her rent and twelve dollars an hour. She just was not making enough money to both pay her full rent and cover her other bills like eletricity and car insurance and her husband's medications and my landlord was wonderful to so patient with us really was wonderful but. He has to make money you know and I had reconciled in my head like how I was going to get rid of our stuff how we're gonNA live in the car. And that was just going to be okay. Kennedy says there was some dark moments then when the stress from the possibility of being addicted was just overwhelming to be in that desperate situation. To be in that desperate situation and really feel like you've done everything you possibly can you know I'm a Frugal Person I home schooled my children for years I know how to. Pinch a good penny but I there was no panic. This is indicated for planet money. I'm Cardiff Garcia and I'm Stacey Smith Today on the show evictions millions possibly tens of millions of renters throughout the US could soon face a similar situation to the one that Kathy was facing the loss of jobs and income. So many of these renters has left the country with a possible evictions crisis and that crisis could have catastrophic consequences both for the renter's themselves and also for the whole economy.

The rent for the apartment the Kathy Kirchner shares with her husband in Camden South Carolina is six, hundred, ninety, five dollars a month, and she cannot afford that on her wages from the assisted living facility where she now works it's really difficult. My paycheck today was five, hundred, ninety, five dollars and and that's for two weeks even before the covert pandemic roughly one out of every four renting households in the US. was already paying more than half of their monthly income in rent. So. Were already paying their rent paycheck to paycheck. But when the pandemic started the federal government along with state and local governments did respond they responded with policies to help avoid an immediate surge fictions for a lot of these renters congress and the president expanded unemployment benefits in the cares act passed in late March, which helped people who lost their jobs, keep paying their bills, things like rent plus a lot of state and local governments with these moratoriums in place that would stop landlords from a visiting tenants. The federal government added its own moratorium on fictions for a lot of housing complexes that it subsidizes but the expanded unemployment benefits expired at the end of July in the moratoriums on. In at least twenty, four of the states that had them had also expired by the end of July. Including the moratorium in Kathy's own State of South Carolina. The Federal Moratorium has also expired and all of these reasons why so many housing experts are now warning that innovations crisis could start soon and the people who are most vulnerable to innovations. Crisis are low income renters according to the Urban Institute. Low income renters are more likely to have held jobs that have been lost in the Cova pandemic especially jobs in food. Services and the retail sector. In fact, two of the jobs that Kathy Secrets your work before the pandemic in a restaurant and in a bookstore were in those two sectors. The new job she took at the assisted living facility did not pay her nearly enough to offset the income she lost, but the economy is still in rough shape. So finding the kind of works used to do is just still really hard this hard when you're willing to work three four jobs like I'm not afraid to work, but you can't find work. A lot of Americans can't find work right now and many are struggling to pay their rent according to the Census Bureau roughly one out of five renters could not pay their rent on time in July and August could be worse nearly one out of three renters said the either had no confidence only slight confidence that they could pay their August rent for months. Kathy says that she herself could only pay partial rent her landlord kept growing tab for her running. into thousands of dollars and I would ask him every couple of months to show us what where we work because I was trying to make payments I would I would keep making payments, but it would be like three hundred dollars for the month. Well, that's less than half of what I, what I them, even though I have a job that's a you know a decent job, but it was it was a challenge. You know it's very stressful to live under that. Environment, if innovations crisis does become a reality communities of color would also be disproportionately hurt partly because a much higher share of black and Latino. Households are renters instead of homeowners there about twice as likely as white households to rent, and before the pandemic, they were already much more likely to face eviction than white households. If there is any good news here, it's just evictions. Crisis is not actually started yet. The warning signs are flashing red but so far evictions. Are actually quite low in a lot of major cities that of course does not mean that everything is fine. Remember that the expanded unemployment benefits and the state moratoriums on fictions only just expired a few weeks ago and it could take a bit of time before the struggles that people are having in paying their rent translate into actual evictions and it also means of course that there is still time for federal state and local policymakers to act again and possibly avert. Meanwhile. In at least some parts of the country hundreds of rental systems, programs have been directing their money to help prevent evictions and a lot of them have received money from the federal government for this very purpose and one of those organizations ended up helping Kathy. In fact, it was actually her landlord who put her in touch with the local program from the United Way that Helps Fight Homelessness this program called New Day Kathy applied and got a grant from new day. She was approved to receive about four thousand dollars and that money cleared all the background Kathy owed her landlord a felt like I. Finally had a chance to get my head. Slightly above water so that I could breathe and it would give me that time that I needed. To get my life together again, and by the first of September, we'll be able to put the rest of my rent down like I'll be able to breathe. Of course, a new start does not mean everything will continue to be fine in the future Kathy's hopeful that as the economy recovers, she'll be able to find other jobs to supplement her income but that partly also depends on whether it becomes safe to work those jobs while there is still a pandemic, there is no certainty about this or about whether the economy will keep recovering. So in the meantime, Kathy has a message for policymakers. Anything can turn on a dime and there are people who are really hard working. who really don't want take charity but don't have a choice. And if it is something that can help people even. Anybody. I would absolutely begged them to consider to continue these programs. We need them people that want to make their rent they want. To, pay their bills. They don't. WanNa take charity they and they're working as hard as they can. You know, and then when you add in the stress of. VID. And going out. Even, if you don't have to work environment like, I do just to go out, it's it's so mentally exhausting. The the mental anguish of not being able to pay your bills is overwhelming. Overwhelming And I don't. I don't. Know How funding works but I do know that if there had not been this funding. I'd, be in my car.

"dementia" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia

"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.

"dementia" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia

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

"dementia" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia

"Books on website too and you know what you probably need to buy them. I'm just thinking today. I want to talk about. Don't push back. That's actually a chapter my Amazon Bestseller. Let's talk dementia. Due to do there. He goes a picture of it and I just was thinking about this today because of something. That's going on with uncle. Ernie now toge Uncle Ernie. My brother-in-law who is recently been placed on hospice. He has Dementia brought on by Agent Orange. And is he is declining cognitively extremely quickly. It's it's very interesting but recently Uncle Ernie has begun to tell us that he had a visit from wealthy people who he could not have visits from like his his dad. Who died out. Gosh twenty five. Thirty years ago but over the weekend he had lunch with porter wagoner. Now isn't that just the most amazing thing I'm thinking? Wow you had lunch with porter wagoner. How how did that come to be in? What was it like inch? What did he tell you? And so we asked questions about his lunch with porter wagoner now what about was he did not have lunch reporter. Wagner. I don't even know of Puerto Wagner is still alive he might. I don't know but he did not come. See Al Garni and have lunch with him. There is truth to earn a story in. Ernie's Brain Ernie. Totally one hundred percent believes he had launched with Porter Wagoner It's called confabulation when the brain makes up a story that is not true but the person totally believes Brain has made that story. Then it's called confabulation. I'M GONNA put my readers back on here in retail you from my book. Let's Talk Menchaca. What the definition of confabulation is according to Wikipedia. One noses read the day boy. If you're hearing this podcast rather than watching it you're fortunate. I look leadoff. Wikipedia defines confabulation as a memory disturbance. That is characterized by verbal statements and or actions that inaccurately described history background and present situations. Well that was certainly the case with uncle. Ernie and Puerto Wagner coming to have lunch. He did not do that but it is what the brain is telling him. It is inaccurate Explanation of the present situation. So now what you can do is you can correct them. And I want to explain to you. How successful that is behind me. Here in this picture The screen at you're seeing is wall. If I went over to that wall and I pressed hard as I could press with every ounce of energy I had to move that wall. I would not move that wall. I live in South West Florida. Our WALLS ARE CONCRETE. So but no matter what the walls not. GonNa move is that you can do it in your house. You're not going to move that wall pushing against that firm. Object to get your way to prove your point that you can move that wall. Well it's not gonNA come out good for you you are. GonNa find out you were wrong and that the end result is not going to be what you'd hoped for so we don't push against what our loved ones are telling us to be fact. No matter how wrong they might be and how right we might be because in the end we are not gonna come out the good situation. They're going to be angry. You're GONNA be frustrated. They're GONNA be frustrated. You're going to be angry. It's just not a good situation so you do want to go with that story Thinking about being right in you know you're right and you need to prove your point that you're right that is kind of how we are in the corporate world where we know that on this job. This was done incorrectly. And we know it should be done this way and we've got to make sure it's done that way in. We work towards correcting situation that makes sense but bearing right does not always bring about a good result and that is certainly true. When you're working with someone who has dementia you being right is not the point. The point of your caregiving journey. Mock France is to take the very best care of your loved one that you possibly can but taking care of yourself along the way and believe it or not not arguing with your folks who have dementia about their confabulation. Their stories their truth as their brain is forming that truth. Not arguing with him about those things helps you because when you are argue with your folks what happens to you. Your blood pressure goes up. You tense up and you get hot in just frustrated and just WanNa scream because you told them a million times porter wagoner did not come at lunch with you when they know absolutely positive he did. He can remember it. He knows the details about it to some degree. What did you do for yourself in that story? You just agitated yourself. And if there's one thing I know about caregiving you a little bit on edge anyway even on a good day in caregiving. You're teetering on the edge. Are you not? Because you don't know from one minute to the next how your loved ones? GonNa Shift in change. Are THEY GONNA finish watching. The price is right and being happy mood or are they going to finish watching. The price is right and be really irked. You don't know life can change that quickly with our folks with dementia but let's face it. It can change that quickly with all of us can it? Not The least little thing can set us off and tell you the more. I live without my Mama. The more I realized how things are. Just not that important you guys we got some of it just slide. What was wash raw shoulders? Like water dish begun in. Let it go. I am not good at the half but I'm realizing something I need to work on. Because that stressed that falls on you that keeps you from being happy and upbeat and feeling good. Well it lands on your loved one and it keeps them from feeling happy and feeling good in. We don't want that. So we're not going to argue with them about their confabulation 's and just talk to them about it. Go with the story so we just went along. How cool is it that you got to have lunch with porter wagoner with any did go on to tell us that he had met? Connie Smith which for some of you who may not know she is a country singer and a couple other people. Will you know what I found out on the way home? He had met those people he'd been to the grand old opry long long time ago and he got to shake hands with those slight three or four females. He got shake hands with us. Ladies said not knowing that if I had not have been inclined to agree with his story I might would have said didn't see Connie Smith. You didn't shake her hand. Went in through one hundred percent reality. The man had a tell you a story of a lady that I visited quite often. This has been probably ten years ago and every time I saw her she would tell me. Her husband was too cheap chief of police for your South Carolina. Well spun me. I had no reason not to believe backdoor totally one hundred percent believed her that he had been this which does not currently but he had been the chief of Police. Make sense to me and so some time later. She wasn't in her regular spot in the dining room and I asked where she was and they said now who you talking about. I said you know the lady who her husband was chief of police chief of police for your Carolina and they said. Oh we know who you're talking about. But he was not chief of Police. She was never ever married in for probably a year. I had heard that story that her husband was chief of police what it made her feel good to have. That story. Didn't hurt me. One bit to go along with it. Especially since I thought it was true wasn't too much longer than that. She was suddenly married to the man who lived in the room next to her and then the next day she was married to somebody else so in my short time of known her she was married and I say that in quotes to lots of men because in her mind that was true. It wrote her joy. Who Am I to take away joy or to alter a story that feels good on our loved ones? Now if your loved one is having a confabulation. That's making them sad.

"dementia" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia

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

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

"dementia" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia

"Senior Life Journeys Presents Carol Hells. Let's talk dementia. Podcast designed to help caregivers find knowledge power hope and smiles in their dementia caregiving journey. Welcome to let's talk dementia. Here is your host bestselling author Carol. Hal Well Hello Caregivers I'm Carol. Let's talk the Ninja in oblige today. I'm recording this. At the end of the day in higher boy he can tell. I've been busy day. It has been an interesting day on. Today's been my. Let's get some physical work done so we decided to put some clothes shopping in our front closet and taken everything out. As I had mentioned in previous episodes it was all piled up behind me. Didn't looks good in To arrange those shells and put it all back in and I took that upon myself to do today some pretty pooped yes I am but why do you care that I put showing in way? Don't let's face it you really don't. That's okay but I wanNA talk to you about organization in your life and how it will help you as a caregiver and then organization for your loved one with dementia in both of them are equally important. I am a big organization for you know. All of my cans are turned with the label facing just exactly right so now opened my cabinet. I can easily and quickly find what I want now. That is good for me. It works very well for me. You may not be that hung up on organization but I can just tell you one thing. If you spend a little time organizing at least those parts of your world that you use frequently with your loved one with dementia you'll find caregiving to be made a little easier for example if the bathroom is piled up with a bunch of shampoo bottles and you know old toothpaste tubes have not been thrown away and just stuff just lots of stuff everywhere that's GonNa make it harder view to quickly reach what you might need to help care for those personal needs of your loved one on the flip side of that if your loved one is the one doing some of the care themselves and they keep reaching for. Tuba toothpastes in its ninety seven and a half percent empty. They may be getting just a minute amount out. They may get frustrated and get nothing out they may give up and not brush their teeth at all and none of those are good so we only want the one to that has toothpastes in it therefore them. We want to make sure that the drawer in the bathroom that they have accessible to the doesn't have things in it that they can't use for instance. Do you WanNa have a pair of scissors in that drawer. Last issues in my bathroom door to cut tags off clothes and things like that but do you want to have that in the jaw of someone who might be dealing with dementia. Well maybe not. That might not be good idea. So keep those things in mind that organization will help them and it will help you. It's an important thing organization to will make the home safer I can tell you. I have been in homes that just had J. U. N. K. everywhere. That's a nice word for they have is Jewish just stuff everywhere and as a healthy individual Ask the caregiver. They had to walk around and in and out of stuff on the floor and just knick Knack Patty wax everywhere that's very disconcerting for someone who has dementia. First of all is dangerous if they've got to maneuver themselves or Heaven forbid a walker or wheelchair around a bunch of junk then we're increase in the odds of a fall. Now listen uncle or has been the hospital three times in two weeks in been X ray three times in two weeks falling. You don't want to do this. You don't won't your loved one to fall sooner or later something's GonNa break and then and boy do. We have a problem. Sometimes those things could have been avoided by getting rid of the junk senior house. Organize it put it up on. Shales label the shales labeled the bins. I'm I'm big on labelling things. My pantry has blue plastic bins on each shelf and they are labeled as to what goes in that. Been that way we never hunt for things. It's in the right ban in take zero point six seconds to put something back in the right Ben now yeah took a little bit of time to make the labels I had to print them out on computer make them look pretty. 'cause I'm little bit obsessed about that but it is worth it that will help your loved one to so let's Pretend that your loved one knows that their snack food is kept in this cabinet and you have plastic bands that say Giannis cookies in in that ban you put gifts what. Janis cookies now. You don't put something else in the pork and beans. Don't go in the container. This is Janis cookies. You put Janis cookies in that. You might have one. That says afternoon. Snacks something like that. That is easy for Janey to quickly find what she might need might also have been says Giannis Cup plate or a spoon knife went maybe not now but you know what I'm saying those things at Janus with us and they go in that being every time you wash and dry put them right back in there in Janey knows where to look for her stuff. Organization is Wonderful Organization will do for you is. You won't go buy junk you don't need when you're making grocery lists you can easily look for what you want because you're pantry in your bathroom your linen closet your supplies. There are organized now if we can save money as caregivers well if we can save money period. That's a great thing but as caregivers we have a lot of expenses caring for our loved one buying depends in the pads and the wipes and the powders powder and we don't use powder anymore. I used to love baby powder but we don't use that anymore. The lotions there we go and the medications and this and the that that we need is very expensive. So keep your costs down by watching what you have monitoring what you have because you gotTa Organiz. Then you don't have to buy stuff that you go back later and go my word. I didn't need a forty eight pack of toilet paper because there's one in the closet. I didn't even know I had so don't do that. I do love me some organization. I truly do. It makes me happy. Gives me a feeling of happiness and contentment? To look in and see that I'm taking care of what I have spent my resources on it gets very godly thing to do in lots of ways because I believe that I am put here on this earth to be a steward of my time and my talents in my treasures and when I am organizing my stuff so that I know what I'm spending my money on what. I'm not spending my money on than I am. Being a good good What's that Word Stewart? There's is good steward of my treasures in. I think the Lord looks down upon and blesses it signed about that. Well then there's my dear my dear sweet Mama who passed away may thirty first as you guys know. She kept a clean house. Mama's house was never dirty but after she got dementia. I went to her office space in her house when de Bunch of junk on her desk. Let's make you filing system said okay. So we made logical bank filing system mortgage filing system Blah Blah Blah. Then I made a file that said things I want to keep and I said so. If it's an oddball something and you're just not sure where to put it. Just put it in the things. I won't keep file will. It was some weeks later. I went back now sitting at the desk. Stay with Mama not open the file drawer and all her files were sitting there. Nice and neat with nothing in them except what I had put in them except for the filed is said things I want to keep and let me tell you why it was packed. Full Mama wise this awful. Why didn't you put it elsewhere? She's because it was things I wanted to keep so I put it in the things I will to keep file. Bless her heart. She thought that was funny and quite make quite Sanson course. Being me little bit obsessive I had to go through sort through all of that. She had a sign in her house. That said I'm well organized as long as nobody asked me where anything is well. We don't WanNa be like that. We WanNa be organized so that we can take the best care possible of ourselves. You got enough stress going on in your world. Make it a little less stressful by Organiz new junk in the easier for your loved one with dementia. This thought for today. I'm not gonNA organize anything tomorrow. I don't think I don't know I might blessings and smiles on your day bye bye.

Then I would ask you to please do that. If you're listening on the podcast and you can do that on I tunes also so the more people that know about us the more people we can help and we presently are in eighty three countries. I need to check and see. We've hit eighty four yet. My goal is one hundred countries and I have no clue why but it just sounds good to me ah but as I said I am Traveling this caregiving journey with you. That's my Mama in the picture here for those on the video and a Momma passed away in May may of last year but we are caregiving my husband and I for my brother-in-law Ernie who has PTSD and dementia about on Agent Orange Orange from having been in Vietnam his journeys just been interesting the last few days and it makes me think. 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.

"dementia" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia

"Let's talk dementia. Glad you chose and join me today a little bit under the weather. I think I've I've got a little bit of a sore throat coming in. I've got a big event coming up. Thursday I'm Kinda need to be able to talk at Not a good feeling but you know that's the way life goes just when you think you've got everything figured out you find out you don't do. I hear an amen. You guys know about that kosher caregivers. You can't really plan too eighty four in advance because well. You just can't plan too far in advance. You never know what's going on in your caregiving role from minute minute. Much less Forget what about doing day to day or planning for next month. United's a challenge. It made me think about yesterday. Sermon at our church Our Pastor UH spend time talking to us about the serenity. Prayer was part of his sermon and was very meaningful. Not done a show before on a different version of this randy. Pair prayer taught as a really good episode but this is the actual version. That's used by alcoholics anonymous and I Dunno it just seemed to relate relate very well to caregiving for what we deal with as caregivers in understanding that there are things in our life we can change and there are things that are life that well we just gotta learn to accept because we're not gonNA change it. There are people we have to learn to exempt. Because we're not going to change those people either so let me just read region the serenity prayer shorts messed up. I'm trying to figure out how to adjust it here. Make it look right there. We go for you folks. Listen to podcasts. I know you wonder. Sometimes what is she doing doing. I wonder the same thing myself. Here is the entire serenity prayer for those of you who may not have heard it. The first few lines are going to be familiar. But it's the last few lines that really struck me as a care Graham caregiver here we go God grant me the serenity to accept the things things. I cannot change the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference living one day at a time enjoying enjoying one moment at a time accepting hardships as the pathway to peace taking as he did this sinful world as it is is not as I would have it trusting that he will make all things right. If I surrender to his will that I may be reasonably happy. Be In this life and supremely happy with him forever in the next man will. There's just a lot of good. Let stuff in that prayer. You know what I'm talking about the The serenity to accept the things. I cannot change the courage to change the things I can. I think for most of you if if you're watching this show or listening to it. You're trying hard to do the things you can do to be a good caregiver. But in that data Jay Journey your finance. There's things you cannot fix aches. You cannot fix your loved. One's dementia if they unless they have a reversible under. Let's get it fixed. If you're dealing with an irreversible dementia like Alzheimer's or Parkinson's instance Lewy body disease frontal lobe dementia vascular dementia whatever irreversible dementia. You might be with. You can't fix that I I wish you could. I'm praying that one day. There will be a cure for all of these but as of today. There's not so we have to accept that in our world and I did with that APP. Beautiful woman in the picture right back here for those. You watching the video Mama Vera. I had to accept that That diagnosis and and that new change in my world in in in her world and how it rocked our world had except that mom accepted it. Well she I would say to me many times Kooky if I can help just one person. Because I have Alzheimer's it will have been worth it and I would tell her at that. Point how many countries these are show our video podcast Are In at this time. And and as of this recording of course mom has been gone for several months now but has this recording. We're in eighty three countries so mama's journeys helping other people and your loved ones journey can help other people if you allow that got to happen in your world if you allow. What's going on with them to shine through view in God's goodness in His grace in his mercy in all of it to shine answer you good things can come from it Trust me. It's true but then we have to know the wisdom know the difference between the things we can do something about in the things we can't because if we're beating our head against the wall to change the things we can't change in that's just not smart now is it. No it is not we want to be using all our energy on the things we can do something about in. If there's things in your world that need changing that you cannot change the imitate that one to the Lord up above. Let him do it. 'CAUSE girlfriend you not go build title to. It says living one day at a time. well as I said earlier as caregivers we do good to handle one day. We're living minute by minute. Because life is changing changing constantly. We think we have our loved ones figured out and then they moved ride into another stage or another phase of their dementia journey in life changes for us so living one day to tie enjoying one moment at a time and I hope you are enjoy those moments. I hope that in your journey you are not so concentrated raided on the negative in the hard in the difficult and the dirty The unpleasant the things you wish you could change that you miss the pleasant present moments in light. Your loved one still has a sense of humor. My mom the mom was inappropriate to and it was funny. I can't help it. It was just funny and she would say things that would make other people laugh and things that how would shake my hand go. I got no idea where that came from. But Mama would laugh and we would laugh tons when Mama would sing sing with us and she would reminisced whatever point. She was capable of wonderful moments in those times that she would look at Mingo Caroline. I love you off. Oh how I wish I could hear that again. Don't care don't cry don't do it. You don't look when you grind accepting hardships as the pathway to peace in boy. That's not the truth for everybody. If we don't learn to accept life as it comes along you've constantly fighting it there will be no peace in. We don't WanNa live a life without peace taking as he did as Christ in this simple world as it is not as I would have it because it's not what you want it but it is what it is like is what audience trusting that he Christ will make all things right if I surrender to his will in this one it's about is just realizing that we can do what what we can do. We can't do what we can't do but he didn't call us to do what we can't do. He only put us on this planet to do the things we can do. And for Oh you it's caregiving for your loved one. We do all this so that I may be reasonably happy in this life now. We're not promised Rose Garden. We're not promising. Every three days going to be Disneyworld for us. 'cause girlfriend is not but we know that we will be supremely happy with him with cries forever in the next life. A man will aim in the last quarter that prayer to I don't know you can see how potentially when I was sitting in that worship service in Riven Ervin Pratt was preaching any. Turn the message toward this randy prey on how to use this on an upcoming episode. Maybe you play this back in. Pray that prayer along Print it out you can google it and find it but keep it in your mind the serenity eight to accept the things you cannot change the courage to change the things. You can the wisdom to know the difference living one day to time enjoying one moment at at a time accepting hardships as the pathway to peace taking as he did this sinful world as it is not as I would have it it trusting that he will make all things right if I surrender to his will that I may be reasonably happy in this life in supremely happy with him forever forever the next.

"dementia" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia

"Here's your host bestselling author Carol. The hello caregivers. I'm Carol and I'm glad you're joining me today for this episode. Let's talk dementia as I sit here and look at my background. See my wonderful fake Getty thing is heavy but I love it right it keeps everything so nice and cool. This is Scott my water in that has dough Tara Orange in it. I believe one of the oils. You might think this is good for your loved one with dementia might not be. Let me tell you why this is not at all what today show is about but Is What I want to talk talk with you about. And if you're listening to this I am holding about a thirty two ounce Stainless Steel Mug here. And I like it because it keeps everything everything ice and cold. But I'll tell you it's heavy and even though it's N.. Dented here in the middle where I can hold it still a lot from my hands. I've had thumb surgery in the past accomplished my bionic hand and sometimes holding. Heavy things is a problem now. Your individual with dementia most likely as a senior citizen and Holding heavy things begins to be a problem. There needs to be a handle on this grouper. You can get one of these stainless steel mugs. That has a handle on it. That's a a great idea otherwise maybe not so much then let's think about our folks with dementia or really anybody. What our preferences do we like? Our liquids really really cold like Carol does. I don't want Luke warm. I won't either hot or cold in northern little but that may not be what your loved one with dementia prefers so think think about that. What is their preference? Make sure you're accommodating that Wael That's a good sip of that drink. I do enjoy it. Believe me I I am fully hydrated as evidenced by many times day. I go to the bathroom but that is not at all what I wanted to talk with you about it. Just got my everything in life seems to lead to my my brain to think about dimension you get to hear about it. Well I have the distinct privilege for the last eight and a half years to conduct Church Church worship for folks with dementia. I did this in South Carolina when my Mama was alive and she attended worship and she would often complain afterwards about what she didn't like about that particular service. The preacher said that she didn't agree with tuition. I'm like Oh will can't make everybody happy. Then we moved to Florida and I walked through. ooh The common airy visiting brother-in-law his assisted living about two weeks after he moved and they were having church worship and I said would you like me to play the piano for you I've yeah while the next thing. I know I was playing the piano every Sunday. The next thing I know the guy who was worshipped later ceased being worshiped later and I was tasked with being worship leader and playing the piano which is not easy. That's a lot to get done each Sunday up and down and working with my folks who have dimension inch. I'm also the one who has to serve communion because our pastor Who is resident? There is in a wheelchair and he can't get around so curious. got a lot to do on Sunday mornings. But it's all good. I enjoy it. You never know what's going to happen at a church service there sometimes. It's just very very interesting so one on Sunday there was a discussion about the origin of the song. It is well with my soul and one lady in attendance. Who lived there? I just hope this wonderful story about how it went on standing there smiling. Oh best is wonderful. Because I'm not entirely sure. She had all the facts right but argue with her in another person should know. That's not how it happened. It happened like this and they proceed to tell their story and the lady goes well. That's not right and I'm GonNa tell you how I know that's all right. Carol standing there in the middle gone all my goodness. I don't know what to do about this and so I got out of the situation somehow. Well we On a couple of Sundays ago. We're going around the room and ask them to tell me individually what they were thankful for. We had about ten or fifteen people so we could do that and this one lady said. I'm thankful that I had fifteen children. Holy moly she had fifteen children for real. I said good gracious woman. That's just amazing. Will the next person to speak was pastern as pastor. What are you thankful for? He said I'm thankful I did not have fifty inch each village. Isn't that funny. Do a damn bridge or I am. They have won fifteen. I mean Kudos. Do you guys guys who do. But it does not care Have done that but it's just very interesting. The things that we hear The prayer requests sometimes are so far out out there that you know. There's just no way that story could be true. I think that then every once in a while I find the story is true but most I'm thinking this story isn't true. So are we going you to pray for prayer request of something we know. That's not true when we do our corporate prayer. When you know what you can absolutely do that you can mention it word for word just like Mrs Smith might requested prayer For her mama that you know her moms know her mom could be alive. Just mentioned it. Go ahead INSEE just like she did because the good Lord knows and he knows your heart. He's not at they're going. I can't believe you're bother me about this. He's not doing that. or or you can just say and I want to pray for all the prayer requests that were mentioned a day each and every one of them and not go into detail but what we would never want to do his Co.. I'm unwilling to pray for about anything but you know your mom died. Nineteen eighty six up Brian for her. Of course I told you before. We would never want to do that. And do we ever want to embarrass our vokes ever but especially among peers in group setting or church sitting. Nobody wants that. So just don't do it This past Sunday I was playing The prelude music we were doing some Christmas music because I could still get away doing Christmas and this lady was just singing everywhere and I said why. Don't you lead the worship music for me and I'll play the piano and she's all. I couldn't do that. Come on up here. We'll practice for today. So she came out we practice a little bit and she goes no no no I could just never do. I could just never do it. And I'm thinking she had such a good job like just encourage her to be a part of this. Yes that's fine. If you don't WanNa do it could sure use your help. All I want you know when it came time for service and I said everybody turned to the first page of their bulletin. The word smart. I assan which I think was all held power Jesus's name acid it's printed there and she hopped up and she ran up front. Just started saying it with me so it was pretty Neat Church Church service with our books with dementia. We never really know what's going to happen. I WanNa ask you this when you go to your church. Are you always show what's GonNa happen there. We'll see you think you you are but if you've got kids in front of you one of them's got to be taken out. Because he screaming fit and you've got somebody in front of you. This rummage through their purse hunting opinion or worship Shit piece of Gum. They've got to UNWRAP rattle rattle in you. Never know what's GonNa go on in this. Just Live Life Church with folks with dementia. It's really very similar. We never know what's GonNa go on. We're maybe a little more accommodating because we realize what we're dealing with but we should be like that in all of our life anyway but our services are short sweet and to the point. Where about thirty thirty? Five minutes in Bibi Bobby Boo. We're out of there but but we do have good music if I do. Say so myself and the sermon and Time of prayer and time of Thanksgiving in it's important for folks folks in touches a part of their soul that needs to be touched and happy to be a part of that. I just prayed Sunday. Somebody get done argument with the other person because you just never know. Do you. Guys have a great day plan on going to church this Sunday okay. Senior life.

"dementia" 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.

Now this is big news yaw. I've told you that. Inflammation has a direct impact on the brain. The connection between inflammation and Alzheimer's is very strong. If we don't want inflammation in our body so as I said influence is all information is not bad. No inflammation as a result On inflammation as a result of an injury or Something that has happened to your body. That's causing you body to respond with an inflammatory process. That is temporary wary. That is good. Your body is doing its job to fight into repair but chronic inflammation is the problem.

And then Dr. Oz decided to undergo testing to learn if he carries a copy of APO four gene. Any learning does US A P O F four gene. If you carry it does show an increase chance of having Alzheimer's now. There are people who have Alzheimer's that don't have. APO forging there are people who have the APO e forging that never get Alzheimer's so I'm not entirely sure why even need to go through that testing but what we need to do instead and for sure maybe not instead but for sure is to change your lifestyle so that you're eating healthy and taking care of yourself and exercising and resting being in having social activities that are healthy and good for your brain in your in your mind in your emotions.

"dementia" 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.

"dementia" 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. 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.

Let's stop and remember there is a difference between dementia and Alzheimer's dementia the inability to think clearly that affects the activities of daily China living in those activities of daily living or bathing eating amputating dressing toilet eating Alzheimer's is a disease of the brain in this little boy has dementia but he does not have Alzheimer's. You see there's a difference. I wanted to paraphrase an article that I read about him. Just caught my attention and hurt. My heart is just a sad story in it's not my goal to bring sad stories in to your world. I'm always wanting to lead you up Bayden. If you go to our website and click to this podcast episode you'll see there's a cartoon therefore you something to make you giggle but life is not all happy happy. Joy Joy is there are things that we have to face and this lady Rebecca Griffiths in living in the UK. AK is facing something. No no one ever thought they would face. No one would ever choose to face when her two year old boy. Reggie I was diagnosed with a disease called Sanfilippo Syndrome known as childhood dementia. She began noticing that he had symptoms aware he would rock back and forth and he was developing slowly. She said at first they thought he was autism and he was transferred to the Children's Hospital. After a pediatrician notice the symptoms the pediatrician had recently treated another child with Mucus NEWCO polysaccharide which is also called. NPS is a condition caused by the shortage of an enzyme in the body. She recognised denies similarities between the case previously that she had diagnosed in what Reggie was experiencing in diagnosed him with tight three Myuka polysaccharide also known as San Filippo Syndrome will reggie and others with that syndrome are missing this enzyme in their brain that controls the build up of a toxin a rather of toxic sugar so there's a toxic sugar that builds up in the brain this enzyme. We keep it from happening and they are are missing enzyme so it means regius. Brian is experiencing progressive damage in explains why it's referred to as dementia because now he's not able to you do those activists activities of daily living on Megyn previously his mother explained there are three stages and he's in the second one where he is hyperactive non verbal and doesn't sleep in his behavior can be hard to deal with the third stages deterioration and that's when you know they don't have long long left. I've just gotTA stop. Can you imagine that that's what she's been dealing with. It was diagnosed to. I don't know how old he is now. The article doesn't tell us that but there is no hopeful outlook for her in this child raising experience experience. She's a win. The third stage happens the body shuts down and he will forget everything he has learned when people ask me to explain it the best way is it's like dementia in a child. She says she's good condition and it was very heartbreaking because she saw were words like incurable in terminal since she didn't cope well at first convince you remember chance to children who need her and so she couldn't sticker head in the sand and she has decided to be an advocate for him into work. The find a cure for this disease so that nobody else will ever have to deal with that with their child. She says I WANNA make the most of him while he's with me and give him amazing memories while he can recall them. There's no point in me falling apart while Rebecca what an amazing story you've got to tell the the number of people whose lives she will touch whether they're dealing with Sanfilippo Syndrome or they just need an uplift in their caregiving journey knowing that but no matter what's going on.

"dementia" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia

"Well as you know if you've listened to this show for very long and we've got several hundred episodes out. I come to you from point in a fait. Our company is a faith based not for profit and everything we do is geared around believing that god has a plan for our life life in even when we're traveling that journey of dementia we can rest assured that he did not wake up one day and went. Oh my gosh susie has dementia. Mary jane mom was just diagnosed with dementia. I had no clue that was gonna happen. Well see that doesn't happen with the lord because he knows our days are steps are ordered and not only does he know are a but he holds us in his hand. His grace we are taught is sufficient shunt for anything and everything we might face in life in as this caregiving journey continues and you progress down the various i steps and <hes> reach plateaus in the declines that come along you will find that that need for his mercy and his grace is even more evident mercy and grace grace believing that he is with us in that he will hold us sustain us through the difficult days days. Mama was diagnosed in august of two thousand six with alzheimer's type dementia. She passed away may thirty first two thousand nineteen so it's only been in a few months for me now and <hes> that whole process of journeying with her as she learned to live with dementia uh-huh alzheimer's type dementia in as she finally learned to die from alzheimer's dementia was a time in my life that i can truly say brought brought me closer to my mama and it brought me closer to the lord because i realized that i could not face the challenges that lie ahead ed without his strong-arm holding mate but you know what else i knew. I didn't want to face those challenges without him. I cannot imagine that journey without knowing could go to the lord with everything that was on my heart and lay it out to him. Somehow since my mom has passed having lost the ability to go talk to her about what's going on in my world that <hes> is good and for <hes> gosh. It's been years now since i've been able to go and talk to my mom about the hard things that are going on in my life. I didn't share those things with my mom during the last several years of her world of her life so my world has been absent those two things for quite some time but now i realize how even more important it is that i share those things with my heavenly father so in the book <hes> i forget the name of the book i don't even have fewer probably but it's a devotional by max lucado and i love max's books and i have read to you of previous episodes some his writings will this is the riding for april third in max kato wrote this. I did not and it's titled grace upon grace. The scripture for this particular rating is from first john on this is how god showed his love among us. He sent his one and only son into the world that we might live through him. This is love love not that we looked god but that he loved us and sent his son as an atoning sacrifice for sins first john four nine thirteen <unk> max writes grace is simply another word for god's tumbling rumbling doubling reservoir of strength and protection it comes at us not occasionally or miserly but constantly and aggressively acidly wave upon wave. We've barely regained are balanced from one breaker and then bam here comes another one grace this upon grace we dared hang our hat and stake our hope on the gladys news of all if god permits the challenge he will provide by the grace to meet it. We never exhausted his supply. God has enough grace to solve every dilemma you face ace wipe every tear you cry and answer every question you ask. Would we expect anything less us from god send his son to die for us and not in his power to sustain us. Paul found such logic impossible in romans. He said he who did not spare his own son but gave him up for us. All how will he not also along with with him graciously. Give us all things stand in the shadow of god's crucified son. Now pose your question. It's jesus on my side look at the wound in his and look at the wound in his hands will he stay with me. You ask having given the supreme and costliest gift. How can he fail to lavish upon us all he has to give. I hope in your caregiving journey that brings some peace in comfort that no matter what's going on the supply of guides crisis never exalted exhausted exhausted. It is there. His faithfulness is new every morning. His love is never ending his mercy beyond.
