Timely Tip: Walking in Dementia's Shadowing World

Caring for a loved one with dementia demands a caregiver to muster every ounce of fortitude – for their own sake as well as their elderly. Here are a few quick do-and-don’t tips to help you deal effectively with the challenge:

What Works:
-- focus on strengths
-- maintain independence for as long as possible
-- simplify the environment
-- remain connected with local resources

What Doesn’t Work:
-- environment that is unfamiliar
-- logical reasoning
-- overcompensating for person

For a detailed first-person look at dementia caregiving, read our May 2006 feature article in Caregiver’s Home Companion entitled Apple Pie and Mom, With a Pinch of Dementia Thrown In.
