What's the difference between your brain and the nature of mental health and the formation of memory? In fact, she was one of the first in her field to study how the brain can change with directed mind input. And this all came from, she told me this story during the interview about a professor challenging her in school that the brain doesn't change. And this was so exciting to hear this stuff after some of the things I was told with my son's brain injury. So during her years in clinical practice in her work with thousands of underprivileged teachers and students in her home country of South Africa and in the USA, she developed her theory, which is called the geodesic information prosecutor theory of how we think build memory and learn into tools and processes that transform lives of hundreds of thousands of individuals with TBIs, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, learning disabilities, autism, dementia and mental health issues like anxiety and depression. She's helped hundreds of thousands of students in adults learn how to use their mind to detox and grow their brain to succeed in every area of their life.

And be prepared to learn from the legend the icon here, doctor Caroline, leap, I'll.
America Is in Free Fall Thanks to Joe Biden
"Our country is in freefall. We have never ever been in a situation as we are in right now. I don't believe the president was elected president. I don't believe he's president. Let's say you disagree with me okay. We'll put that to the side. Let's forget about that which would be unbelievably significant. And we need to get to the bottom of it. But let's put that to the side even if you think he was elected i cannot imagine more disastrous policies and actions than he has taken right I don't know if he is a animatronic corpse. I don't know if his handlers are behind it. We don't know that alone is a constitutional crisis that we have all become so cynical. I think that's the way it goes. It's not the way it goes folks.

In terms of the civilians killed and then the disrespect the disrespect shown to true american with that with the the looking at the and with the five is that disrespect or is that his mental breakdown. You know i'm going to tell you. One of the key symptoms of dementia. Alzheimer's is inappropriate behavior. I mean i remember it in the middle of the campaign last year. I put out a very very isolated very authoritative podcast with doctors who very painstakingly went through the symptoms of dementia and alzheimer's as laid out in the dsm five which is a book that they used and They didn't disagree. They had like they nailed about eight of the ten symptoms. They showed them on tape. And the only difference between the two of them what one daughter was moderate and the other one was headed for real real serious difficulties and they debated exactly why one of the things they kept pointing out is inappropriate behavior for example when he says i was instructed. Now actually inappropriate even if it's true all your faculties you wouldn't say right what president would walk out and say. I was instructed to not answer any questions.

America Has Abandoned the Women of Afghanistan
"Over the weekend if you watch the solemn proceedings and shanksville. Your concerns grew about the infirmity of president biden. And i believe that. Those concerns are now feeling concerns. The effort to get americans and afghans allies out of afghanistan will falter because it draws attention to the president. And they're doing everything they can to get attention off of the president. Do you think he's infirm. One eight hundred five two one two three four. I do not believe dementia. I do not believe alzheimer's. I just think he's very much evidencing. His almost seventy nine years and that this is hurting america. Badly the news out of afghanistan with terrible all weekend long that toledo's announced new rules for female students.

"Joe Biden. Anyway, so I must tell you, I don't have a near term answer. I could go on the patrol end reserve and take out and probably reduce the price of gas maybe. But it's going to be hard. It's going to be hard as a possibility to be able to bring it down. Cut 98, Biden just starts rambling. It's very obvious he has mental decline dementia Alzheimer's, the way he's clutching his fists is a characteristic of people that have Alzheimer's. I'm not trivializing it. He shouldn't be president, okay? It is a national security issue. The world is laughing at us that we have this corrupt bumbling old man, as present in the United States. We can do so much better than this. We are the greatest nation ever to exist in the history of the world, and it is a laughingstock. It is a joke. It is a circus act. It is an insult to the sacrifice of our veterans, the dedication of our citizenry, the history to have this buffoon. Babylon like this. We have 330 million people, in our country. We can do much, much better than this. Play cut 98. It's a laughing stock, and it's needless to say, cut 98. The kid from a middle class average middle class home versus at home will go to school having heard 1 million more words spoken than the child who did. A gigantic disadvantage. Mister president, the question was on the community college. Which was a big campaign promise that you made. You talked about that a lot. I am not sure. Yeah. And I'm going to get it done. Now interesting Biden was actually using one of our talking points about how many words of kids here's at home, which is an argument to bring fathers back in the home, but Democrats will never argue for a national campaign to put fathers back in the home or to put families back together. Because that means that they would have to actually tell people to take responsibility. And that in and of itself is a no go, Democrats telling people to take responsibility for their actions now. They believe in bailing out individual and personal decisions, no matter what it might be. Joe Biden was asked about the open southern border where we are on pace to have millions and millions of four nationals pour into the country. Joe Biden says look, I haven't had a whole lot of time to go to the southern border. Cut 99. Do you have plans to visit the southern border? I've been there before and I haven't I mean, I know it well. I guess I should go down, but the whole point of it is I haven't had a whole hell of a lot of time to get down. I've been spending time going around looking at the $900 billion worth of damage done by hurricanes and floods and weather and traveling around the world. Yeah, I've been there before. It's like I've seen the pyramids of Giza. Okay, I'll get there again. I've been to Egypt. I mean, come on, I've seen the Taj Mahal. It's not like I need to go against like I'm president of the southern border. He has 20 plus Delaware trips that he's done. He goes to the beach, he does whatever he wants to do. And there's no evidence he's been to the southern border as president. Is that right? Zero evidence. Joe Biden's perfectly fine with the sex traffickers continuing the guns falling across the southern border, the drugs flowing into the country. And there's no evidence actually that Joe Biden is actually been to the southern border in 48 years in government, or as vice president. And so the Biden regimes numbers are collapsing in front of us. We now have evidence that NIH was involved in funding the Chinese coronavirus. And usually when these things happen, the people in charge, they try to adapt or adjust or alter because they say, hey, we're really unpopular. Maybe we should change something. Let's go to cut one O four, saying that this is Peter doocy reporting on the town hall from last night. Cut one O four. So the president's comment about possibly using the National Guard to help with this supply chain crisis is being walked back by the president's staff, telling us this morning, the following, requesting the use of the National Guard at the state level is under the purview of governors. And we are not actively pursuing the use of the National Guard on a federal level. So that's that. I was just in California. And as I was taking off, I saw Biden's boat parade. I saw 200 ships off side off the Long Beach coast at long beat Long Beach port. No plan whatsoever to fix the supply chain crisis. Baron shelves across the country, and they're saying get used to it. It's bread lines. I mean, come on, it's not that big of a deal. This Biden regime is a tricky one to figure out and the only way that you could possibly process it is they know that he's not going to run for reelection, and they don't care if the numbers get driven into the ground, and they want the intentional and they want the deliberate the destruction of the country and to run it into the ground. Some people say, well, Charlie, you can't say that Joe Biden wants to destroy the country. What would he be doing differently if he wanted to? Keep the borders open and fight the currency. Give China whatever they want when it comes to Taiwan, arm the Taliban with $85 billion, of weaponry. Cover up the NIH funding, mass mail in balloting. When Republicans take back the house which they will. One of the top priorities has to be too special counsels. One into Joe Biden is a regime in the second one in the NIH, the funding surrounding it on how we and our government allowed this entire mess to happen because guess what? Without NIH gain of function research, Biden would not be president. It was the virus, the mail in balloting, that made their implementation regime possible. Fauci funded the displacement of Trump and the implementation of Biden. I want to tell you guys about the alliance defending freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com.

The bodies of the service members were killed in afghanistan to make this about biden is mind-blowing.

How to Recognise the Signs of Alzheimer's Disease
"We start with the, the warning signs of Alzheimer's. What's what's an actual warning sign? And what is actual related to normal aging? Which is actually having this conversation with our friends. Last night, really good friend has a tendency to do about 15 things at once, and can't seem to remember what she's doing. And I think I know for because it hasn't changed in fifteen years that that's just life is and not paying attention. So we're can we start there? Sure. So, you know, there's certainly as we get older and our brain shrinks, we start off some capacity, some cognitive capacity that is, you know, considered the normal aging process, but you know, in today's day and age, we really give very little leeway for that just to remind people, you know, our grandparents, you know, in the 1960s, 70s 80s as they got older, they became senile and that word is really fallen out of favor. So we don't really talk so much about senility as the diagnosis or excuse for having, you know, poor memory or or function. It's not to say that the dog. Not any change that occurs with aging but we really won't get towards. Is there more of a problem. And when we start thinking about dementia, which is the big umbrella term that we think about and, and Alzheimer's disease being the most, common one, there has to be memory loss. So that's a that's, that's a symptom and assigned really, that has to be there. And then there has to be some sort of dysfunction in other what we call spheres of cognition, and probably the easiest one that to talk about is something called executive functioning. So when you go see a neurologist Thursday, we are you know, you're going to be asked questions about who does the who does the bills at home? What are what are the what are the what's the capacity to pay the bills and somebody who may be paid bills forever in their adult life? And all of a sudden now a spouse or a child has to double-check. There's late payments. There's overdrawn on a checking accounts things like that is the ability to sort of have this high-level executive wage. Ocean is a is really a sign that there's something perhaps going on, much more than just. Oh, I can't remember that

Joe Biden Flustered Over Notes About Vaccination Rates
"Need some comic relief before you get to Fauci. So here is, um Apparently the president the United States dementia, Joe earlier today, you know, we have, uh, roughly 350 million people vaccinate the United States. What and billions around the world. What, and virtually no one's died because of that vaccination. Okay, I checked. Two things. One is if you see this video Biden is actually looking at his notes to make sure he gets the number right. Well, I I checked there only 328 million people in the country. He says. We have 350 million vaccinated, so I guess they're just vaccinating. Everybody comes across southern border. Maybe that accounts for the extra 22 million. I don't know. But so I guess we're all in the clear now, right? I mean, if you're worried That, Um maybe you're I don't know. Going to get fired. You know, You want to get the vaccine, get the vaccine. You don't want to get it Don't want to get it. But if you're already going to get fired, just say look. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, The president says everybody in the country's vaccinated, so don't don't give me that. He did it twice. By the way, looking at his notes, You have to get more people vaccinated. I said, Well, over the number again. I remind myself 315 Million Americans have already been vaccinated. They're doing fine. Okay, Great. They're doing fine. Now, this is the same guy dementia Joe Biden. A while back, said that 150 million people, um Have been killed by gun violence in this country, so At least we know we're what we're dealing with here, right?
Football: Dementia Risk Greatest for Defenders
"Think of a future where football takes place without headers. And footballs are sold in shops with a warning about the risks of dementia. This is all about the link between heading the ball and dementia in later life. Now the anecdotal link has been established for some time, but we need more science. We're told in a new study, carried out by Glasgow University has come up with some pretty fine distinctions in terms of risk factors. Let's talk with the man behind it, Professor William Stewart. So, William before we imagine football without headers. What's new about the findings that you've come up with? Yeah, So, as you say, we have suspicions for quite a while that heading a bowl. Another head impacts in sport made lead to a risk of dementia. That's because of What we've done about boxing for for many years and more recently in sports, like American football, and also in football, a particular pathology, which which we used to call dementia pugilistic and there's no but this name chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE. Peters and that's uniquely linked to head injury and also a couple of years ago Exploring this, we looked at deaths among footballers and found that footballers were 3.5 times more likely to die over the gentle brain disease, which we think may be related to the CT than it would expect for the population. Right. What these studies don't do is tell us necessarily affects the act of football. Or is just being a football? This is something genetically. That makes you a good footballer picture at risk of developing dementia. So this this problem in all these things? Exactly So you can establish a correlation, But you can't establish a causation. How close are you getting to the causation in your latest study? Well, what we did was we looked at it's you know, taking this hypothesis. The head injury was important and of course, head injury and impact in football. At the risk of that video is depending what position you didn't goalkeepers, for instance, don't had the bowl and have fewer head injuries and the rest of the players. So so if our hypothesis is correct, then would expect dementia rates in goalkeepers to be very low are normal. And outfield players were behind unless exactly what we saw Goalkeepers had a risk, which was pretty much the same as we've seen the population. The outfield players had a four fold higher risk of dementia and actually defenders. The position where there's most heading and most high impact training had up to five fold higher risk of dementia than the population risk.
Study Finds Excessive Coffee Shrinks Your Brain, Increases Dementia Risk
"Coffee and what it does to your body.

Approval of New Alzheimer's Drug Could See Surge in Blood Tests
"Last year about six million people in the us. We're living with alzheimer's disease and by twenty sixty that number could be as many as fourteen million people living with the disease. There's no cure and it's not easy to tell if someone has it from symptoms alone. The testing for alzheimer's is invasive and resource and pensive staff writer. Kelly servic is here to discuss. How testing the blood for alzheimer's might facilitate new treatments and new research. Hi kelly hi sarah alright. So this is kinda spurred on by the approval of a potential treatment for alzheimer's disease. I'm not going to say the name of the struggle. I'm going to leave that to you. It's very long but it's really put a spotlight on this issue of testing for the disease in the blood. Why is that first of all. Fda really surprised a lot of people by approving this drug called kanye mab marketed as as you home for alzheimer's and that that approval was special. Not just because there hasn't been an alzheimer's drug approved in more than a decade but also because this is the first approved drug that aims to actually interfere with the underlying disease process and slow the progression of disease and the reason that that is shaken. Things up is that essentially a lot of older people with memory problems. Who did not see care. Did not seek an alzheimer's diagnosis before. Might do so now that there is an available treatment. And what they would do to get screened would be what get speidel. Fluid take it out so diagnosing. Alzheimer's is really complicated. There other neurological conditions that can cause dementia and an older people a lot of other factors. That might contribute to their memory. Problems and as a result really confirming alzheimer's diagnosis requires waiting to get assessed by a specialist and be assured as you can be either getting a pet scan which is expensive. And there aren't a ton of pet scanners in this country or spinal tap so that your spinal fluid can be analyzed for certain

Caller Concerned Inflation, Higher Priced Goods Will Get Worse Under Biden
"It. But Venezuela has arrived. And Leesburg, Virginia, My husband went to Costco last night here. By five. Okay? Hybrid by for his birthday, our tradition to grill for his birthday. Usually they're $40. Yesterday. They were $90. Wow. We did not have rib eyes last night. It's happening that's like almost double in price, and I'm very scared that it's just going to get worse and worse. I don't want to upset you, but it's definitely going to get worse and you can already see it as I say. People tell me they drive into McDonald's. You can't get anything for really Maybe one meal. A small meal for five bucks used to be able to get a lot for five bucks. You see, the cost of labor is going through the roof in order to keep people working. Even low skilled or no skilled labour because they're competing with the federal welfare state now. That is your tax dollars, So that's driving up prices. There's shortages of items that's driving up prices. And of course, inflation is driving up prices. I went also in Leesburg. To a gas station called sheets and I went to fill up my car. And the the premium price was unbelievable yet it's shot way up and it's not just them. I don't blame them. It's because we were energy independent. Prior to this man taking over and moving into the Oval Office. We're not energy independent anymore. You know, OPEC is back in action. And, of course, Russia gets their pipeline. What do you call these people? If you don't calm, American Marxist, What do you call them? Stupid? He's got dementia. Come on, folks.
We Have the Right to Know Joe Biden's Health Conditions
"Why don't they release his medical records? Why not to release the medicines that he's taking? When they talk about Trump's tax returns. Isn't it more important to know about Joe Biden's Medical situation. Isn't it more important to know what prescription drugs he's taking? Well, I start that push, Mr. Producer. What do you think of that? We want to know what prescription drugs Joe Biden's taking, and we want a release of all information relating to his mental faculties, including whether or not they've even taken tests. I read up on these issues, for instance, you can do Tests will determine if somebody has this. I think it's called towel. Growing in their brain. I think it's a protein that is Effectively interfering with the synopses in the brain and so forth, and so on. Why doesn't Joe Biden take that test? Because he'd probably fail it. And I don't say this to mock the man by the way. Don't do that. There's too many people in this world that have dementia, Alzheimer's and so forth. And so on. Now, my point is he chose to run for president. The Democrat Party chose to nominate him. His whole family kept their mouth shut. His friends kept their mouth shut. There is, doctors kept their mouth shut and the Praetorian Guard media protecting him. And he has every indication of having issues. And now he's president of the United States. Don't we have a right to know anything? I mean, they said, Well, we need to know tax returns. Screw the tax returns. That doesn't tell us anything.

"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.

"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. You want to what you can do to bring them out of that confabulation to change the subject to help reassure them. That's I don't think that's the way it happened You know I talked to so and so when they thought that's what happened. But this is what happened instead Brinson my brother-in-law sure it has cancer In any keep saying I got cancer. Got Cancer and We you can tell him earn A. You don't have cancer but Ernie Sherry does so what we can say instead and have said you know. We saw your doctor in the hallway and they did a test in. You don't have cancer. Isn't that amazing. You know they thought you did but you don't you don't have cancer and that will bring a little bit of peace to him for a little bit and I can tell you with Ernie. It's GonNa come back the next day in the next day. We're going to tell the same story so we want to bring them out of that are said are painful to them. But if they're not don't push against the wall not best. Thank you Arnold Schwarzenegger. You are not but you know what? I don't think he could push down this concrete wall behind me. What do you guys think? I doubt I'll hope you care. GimMe Journey makes you smile. I hope you make your loved one smile. Hope you make somebody else mile link what you can do today to reach outside of your caregiving world in touch someone. I received an email this morning from a lady who wrote regarding the episode idea of being corrected on my grief in her thoughts on it. It made me feel good. It up. Lifted me in in this stage of my life grieving. I needed to be uplifted someone. I've never met uplifted me today. Who can you uplift? Think about that. Blessing since miles.

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.

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

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

"I'm glad you've chosen to join me today if you haven't done so if you're watching this on youtube or any any media that will allow you to leave A kind word of review thumbs up or subscribe Greib. 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.

"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.

"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.

"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. Well hello caregivers in welcome back to. Let's talk dementia today. We're GONNA talk about the cure for everything. It most of the time to get the cure for everything or to find doubt the answer. You have to send somebody thirty nine ninety five in your credit card number or they want you to sign up to get something every month and it's only gonNa cost you eighty nine ninety five a month. What a deal that is? I going to give you the answer for free and the cure for everything is something that I have harped on so many times you're going to go not again but recently in the AARP magazine. I believe it's this month's issue see owners to get the AARP magazine just won't let you know that. But my husband he he has in here as it passes on the good stuff to mate but they had an article called the cure for everything so on that formation from for today's show is taken and some of it from that article the cure for everything. WanNa guess what it is. If you've listened minium I shows are watched. Many of my shows than you know the cure for everything is getting rid rid of inflammation inflammation. y'All go kill us. It's not a good thing. Now you've got to know there are times. Inflammation is a good thing in your body but it's a temporary. Everything is not a long lasting it is not a chronic condition in wind becomes a chronic condition. That's when we have problems the most common trick. The most common common trigger for most health issues that go on in our bodies is low grade inflammation so a study was done in Boston where they They conducted did it with ten thousand people. In thirty nine countries. The average age was sixty one they were looking to see if anti inflammatory drugs could lower the right of heart disease and he did it worked but they also found out it reduced lung cancer mortality sent more than seventy seven percent and reports of Gout and arthritis fail by reducing losing inflammation. 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. It is a slow slow forming process in the body and it causes misfiring the immune system. So this is not good. Keeps your body in a high state of alert and damaged healthy sales in will. Does that sound oh good you. It doesn't sound good to me. It can attack the inflammation can attack the lining of your arteries your intestines. Your River your brain. I mean just everything and it can lead to dementia. This should not surprise you. Because that's what I'm talking about. Diabetes Cancer Heart Disease Arthritis Pression Yup. None of those are good things and the thing is heart disease. Arthritis depression lead to dementia can lead to dementia. It's it's a bad thing we've got to get this under control. The main calls of inflammation in our world is lifestyle. And we've talked about this. A big blue zone proponent and of their their steps for reducing This process of inflammation your body.

And you've got to stop this folks. You've gotTA decide. I'm going to be proactive. This is not not happening in my world. That's where I am. That's why I am eating healthy.

WanNa guess what it is. If you've listened minium I shows are watched. Many of my shows than you know the cure for everything is getting rid rid of inflammation inflammation. y'All go kill us. It's not a good thing. Now you've got to know there are times. Inflammation is a good thing in your body but it's a temporary. Everything is not a long lasting it is not a chronic condition in when it becomes a chronic condition. That's when we have problems the most common trick. The most common common trigger for most health issues that go on in our bodies is low grade inflammation so a study was done in Boston where they They conducted did it with ten thousand people. In thirty nine countries. The average age was sixty one they were looking to see if anti inflammatory drugs could lower the right of heart disease and he did it worked but they also found out it reduced lung cancer mortality sent more than seventy seven percent and reports of Gout and arthritis fail by reducing losing inflammation. 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. It is a slow slow forming process in the body we and it causes misfiring the immune system so this is not good. Keeps your body in a high state of alert and damaged healthy sales in will. Does that sound oh good you. It doesn't sound good to me. It can attack the inflammation can attack the lining of your arteries your intestines. Your River your brain.

"Slow the symptoms of dementia. But it's very very minimal and Very shortly upped but then there are side effects especially Ariza has gastrointestinal intestinal issues with it. 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.

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

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

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.

"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.
