Sharing Wisdom

From Edith in Illinois
 
When names and words “disappear” and he needs to ask over and over for the same ones, we put the “words for the day” on a 3x5 card and save them. He reviews them often and it helps him remember some of them the next time. When we go on a doctor’s visit, we take along the card with the names of doctor, nurses, meds, etc., so he can review them before the visit. You can get 3x5 cards at the office supply store and run them through your computer so the print is easy to read.
 
From Carolyn in Florida
 
When your loved one is discharged from Skilled Care, make sure you are given the next dosage of medication to be taken in advance of leaving the facility. This will allow you enough time to drop off and pick up the prescriptions needed without fear of missing any dosages.


The best ideas and solutions for taking care of  your  loved one often come from other caregivers.  Please post your ideas and insights and we will share them with your fellow caregivers.
