A message to caregivers

Advice for quarantine with your loved ones

I know this isolation is tough when you live with someone who has dementia. I hope all of the caregivers are able to take breaks during the day.

If your loved one is safe alone for a few minutes step outside to refresh your mind. If you cannot leave them close your eyes and take some deeps breaths.

I could not leave my mom's side so I would put her in a chair, close my eyes, breath deeply and count to 10. It truly helped relieve the stress. Caregiving for a loved one with dementia is the toughest job there is, remember to take care of yourself too.

A few ideas to help make your social distancing isolation caregiving a bit easier.

  • Bake or cook simple recipes together.

  • Clean around the house. Sweep the patio, fold towels or tasks that help the person feel a sense of accomplishment.

  • Do arts and crafts, such as knitting, painting, coloring. Keep patterns and tools simple. Google is your friend for ideas.

  •  Look at books the person used to enjoy.

  • Organize household or office items, particularly if the person used to take pleasure in organizational tasks.

  •  Read the newspaper.

  •  Play music or sing songs.

  • Tend the garden or visit a botanical garden.

  • Watch family videos.

  •  Work on puzzles, word searches, simple crossword puzzles.You can find these online and print them out.

  •  Youtube can become your best friend. You can find, music, television shows, bird watching just about anything to keep them engaged for a while.

  •  Chair exercise with them or get them up and walking. Again youtube can help with exercise videos for seniors. If they sit all day sleeping at night might become an issue.

If you have questions or just need to talk to someone call the 24 hour line. I know this isolation is toughest on caregivers of loved ones with dementia.
