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.

I know, its been awhile since posting. Overall Muddear has been doing very well. In the last couple of months we did another respite stay. No complaints - we combined the stay to accommodate for my business trip to Texas which fell right before Mike's birthday weekend. We had a nice long weekend celebrating Mike without worrying about getting a granny-sitter; how long she could or could not stay; or how much we would have to pay. We had a whole day of snow tubing at Perfect North Slopes and dinner. It was a blast!
Because I was out of town, Mike dropped Muddear off at Brookwood Retirement Community without a hitch. Now I'm thinking he should do so more often, considering Muddear traumatizes me when I drop her off. I had pick-up duty, which I was more than happy to do as it is usually the easy part of the respite stay experience for me. As expected, Muddear was all smiles, albeit more than ready to come home.
That's all for now. I must do better keeping up with my posts.
