“Looking After Someone With Alzheimer’s At-Home” by Relink (e-book)

I had the privilege of reading the online e-book by “Relink” titled, “Looking After Someone With Alzheimer’s At Home”…

First, allow me to offer admiration to any caregivers or family members who have taken a loved one with documented Alzheimer’s Disease into their home.  It takes dedication, courage and love to open up one’s home for any loved one.  I had to realize that my family was unable to take care of my Mother in our home – as we both worked full-time jobs, had a teenager in high school and were unable to afford home care for supervision of my Mother.

This e-book offers twenty (20) wonderful steps, including ideas, suggestions and pertinent information for family members to make their journey easier regarding care of their loved one with Alzheimer’s Diseases in their home.  Many of these steps I can easily relate to – *driving, *communication, *safe environment, *denial, *(don’t) argue, *communication and *guilt.

Top tips and suggestions are – *take care of yourself as the caregiver, *find and attend a caregiver support group, and get over any *guilt associated with duties or loyalties as a caregiver.  Just know that you are doing the best job your can do and if anyone feels they can do a better job as the caregiver – please offer them the full-time role of caregiver to your loved one.

I highly recommend this e-book to anyone considering welcoming a loved one into their home.

I have to give this e-book a 5 ***** rating !

“Caring Across Generations”….full time caregiver and employee

Thank you to “Caring Across Generations” for asking me to write a blog/article on my experience being a Caregiver and a full-time employee with a family of my own.  Employers need to understand the precarious position we, as Caregivers are in.

How did I ever do it?  I look back now and have no answer, other than sheer will and support from my husband of 31 years and son.  I am honored to share my blog…..
