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.

Final Plans

Well...

All of the plans have been made. The visitation and memorial service (Walter will be cremated) is planned for Tuesday, February 5th at 12 Noon.

Sharon, the aide, will come in to work that morning to get Muddear dressed and ready for the funeral. I may have to purchase something for her to wear this weekend. I had not thought about that - too many things on my mind.

I talked with the nursing home where Philip is located (Glencare) and we are going to pick him up and take him to the funeral as well. I had hoped the nursing home could assist with transportation, but apparently they cannot on an individual basis. I won't complain - it is, what it is.

Almost everyone has been notified, at least everyone I know to call. Hopefully anyone I left out, will see the death notice in the newspaper. The funeral home will handle all final details...thank the Good Lord as I am tired.

My greatest task remaining - finding a few pictures of Walter to "display" during the visitation and memorial service as there will be no casket. I have never been to a cremation service. I guess there is a first time for everything. This will be interesting - I know this may sound morbid, but I kind of want to take pictures.

I think I'll stop now, as this post is kind of depressing me. My next creative act will be funny bereavement cards. I have been sad and I really don't like to be sad. It feels as though I am starving for laughter. What I would really like for people to give me during this time...not sympathy, but laughter. Send me jokes!

Well. oh oh, I'll have to do some searching and see if I can find my funny bone. While I do try to smile a lot and find joy in small things, don't know many jokes. Oh here, I have an idea, go see this joyful treasury I put together on Etsy awhile back for the MN Street team. Each item just tickled me. http://etsymn.blogspot.com/2008/01/joyful-works.html

sending smiles, Jane
