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.

Back to Reality

Today Mike and I picked Muddear up from her respite stay - Brookwood Retirement Community is the best! This stay was wonderful. First, I did not receive phone calls every day as I have during past respite stays so I was able to vacation without worrying incessantly. Second, when I arrived at Brookwood Muddear was happy and full of smiles. She had on fresh clothes and she smelled clean. I never take even the simplest things from granted after previous respite experiences. Finally, I could tell that they were faithful in taking care of the skin disorder Muddear currently suffers from. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a respite care facility. I appreciate the care the staff provided my grandmother.

I am very thankful that prior to leaving for vacation my worrying was for naught. Praise be to God! :-)

Stay tuned for upcoming posts - Pamela and Julia have great stories about their visits with Muddear while I was away. Thanks again to both of them!
