Re: Caring for a Loved One with Dementia

Georgia, thanx so much for sharing.
I know the specifics of what you are dealing.
I gave care to my elder sister for about five years.
She passed on in 1995 September.

One of the tools I found so very helpful was a book entitled
"The 36 Hour Day"

I recommend it highly, if you have not read it already.
I also recommend "Learning To Speak Alzheimer's"

You may also find the link below helpful.

I stand on the border of anger when people speak in jesting terms about memory loss. It is no joking matter. "There But for the Grace of God..."

Georgia, let us continue this conversation!
