Tips for Caring for Your Loved One

September 29, 2015

 

 

 

When caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's or Dementia it is important to have a general daily routine to keep things running smoothly and help with the little memory they do have. A few key steps to follow are listed below:

 

- Keep a sense of structure and familiarity. Keep consistent timing for daily activities such as waking up, bathing, meal times, light walks, etc.

- Explain what you are doing beforehand so they know what to expect even if they do not completely understand. 

- Don't do everythiing for them. Have them tye their own shoes from time to time, water plants, make oatmeals or a sandwich, help clean up after dinner, etc.

- Attend Alzheimer's and Dementia support groups if possible, either alone or with your loved one

 

These few tips can help to keep your life and your loved ones more organized and manageable.
