5* Book Review – “Hit the Nail on the Head”

5* Book Review – “Hit the Nail on the Head”

New 5* review that is eloquently written with beautifully relayed sentiment. Refreshing expression – of an often misunderstood responsibility.

“That said, I would recommend this book not only to caregivers but also to those who support or criticize the role of a caregiver in their family”. The reviewer goes on to say – many instances that only caregivers can relate to….”

“The book is instructive, and it hit on most of the highs and lows I experienced. It’s all too easy to give instruction to caregivers when you’re not one, and it’s even easier to dot every conversation with a caregiver with “helpful hints,” even if the speaker doesn’t have a clue what he or she is talking about…”

Thank you – MJ Plaster.

Radio Talk – with Sarah Zink – “Plaid for Women”

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/sarahzink/2015/03/26/alzheimers-through-my-mothers-eyes-with-suzette-brown

Honored to be chosen to partake in “Plaid for Women’s” Radio Talk show.  My experiences as a caregiver – day to day life and the frustrations of being a caregiver.

Many subjects broached to help those who are in the same situation I was in.  Driving – get your loved one off the road—If you can do a better job – please take over.  Do not take the change in your loved one personally – it is the disease speaking.

Many more discussed from my experiences over the yeas.

Please share any comments, suggestions or ideas – they are always welcome.

Thank you Ms. Zink !

“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 !
