The year 2030 will ring in with more senior citizens than folks under age 18.
If you are one of those seniors, what are you doing to be healthy?
There are over 200 types of dementia. I had a friend's husband show concern that she might have dementia. I hope this story will make you giggle AND understand dementia a bit better.
When you pass away, who gets your "stuff?" Who receives your cash, savings accounts, life insurance, etc? I am working with a family who is experiencing more issues than they should all because one account was incorrectly handled. Not fun.
We all know life can change in a minute, but when you live through a hurricane, that statement becomes very real. Another "very real" thing is this - people are good! I am so appreciative of all the individuals who are stepping up to help other people. To donate to our Ian Relief Fund, go to www.letstalkdementia.org/donations. THANK YOU!
The saying goes, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." That's a great idea. A horrible idea is to take those lemons and suck on them all day long. Not a good plan. What does that have to do with caregiving? Your outlook on caregiving will have a drastic impact on your loved one.
So make lemonade!
A little extra attention will usually reap big rewards in most every life situation.
That is really true when we are caregiving for someone with dementia.
Today I am thinking dirty! Thinking dirty can affect the health of your brain in a very positive way!
