Tips For Caregiver's

People with Alzheimer's disease frequently become more disoriented after dark or when waking. Leaving a night-light on in the bedroom may be helpful.

3:00 A.M.

"H-E-L-P! I need help! Somebody help me!"
(Blindly, I go running down the hallway.)
"Muddear? What's wrong?
"I don't know."
"Why are you yelling for help?"
"I just wanted to know if anybody was home."

Argh! I hate it when my grandmother does that to me. She did it this morning. We have a baby monitor hooked up in each room so she can call us if she needs us (so we don't have to sit right next to her constantly). She called me this morning and when I got downstairs she told me she just wanted to know if I was ever going to get up. It was still early! *grumblegrumble* The only time I get to sleep is on the weekends, since I go to work at 4am. The best is when she wakes me up at 6am on the weekends to make sure I went to work on time! *headwall*

Does the baby monitor freak her out? You know, because she can hear voices, but doesn't see anyone?
