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.

Muddear Updates

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.

Yay! So glad to have new of you both and a Happy Birthday for Mike. Have thought a couple of times about convoing you, but did not want to bother you. Hugs to all, Jane

Hey Jane!

You can always convo me! Never a bother! It is so nice to hear from you.

I'm trying to keep up with all of responsibilities. Some days are easier than others - but certainly not complaining!

How have you been?
