If a Loved One Has Dementia

What to Expect: The Early Stage
You're more of a care partner than a caregiver. Your parent, relative, spouse, or partner can still get dressed, take a shower, and do daily tasks. But they may need help to not miss appointments, remember certain words and names, and know when to take medicine. That can make it hard to know when or how to jump in with a hand.

Use this time to plan and practice. Get on the same page about wills, money, and wishes for long-term care. Focus on independence. For example, if your loved has trouble recalling a word, ask if it’s OK to help instead of blurting out the answer. Work as a team. People with dementia can spend years in the early stage. Enjoy your loved one as much as possible, but save time for yourself, too.

Self-care tip : This is a good time to educate yourself on dementia and build a community of doctors, online or in-person support groups, therapists, and friends who understand what you're going through. If you plan to be the main caregiver, talk to friends, neighbors, and relatives about pitching in so you don't feel stuck.

Caregiving for a Person with Alzheimer's Disease

What is Alzheimer’s Disease?
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of a group of brain diseases called dementias. Alzheimer’s disease accounts for 60% to 80% of dementia cases. Other forms of dementia include vascular dementia, mixed dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies, and frontotemporal dementia.

Alzheimer’s disease, like all dementias, gets worse over time and there is no known cure. Nearly 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease destroys brain cells causing problems with memory, thinking, and behavior that can be severe enough to affect work, lifelong hobbies, and social life. Eventually, it can affect one’s ability to carry out routine daily activities. Today, it is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. It is the fifth leading cause of death for those aged 65 years and older.

[02/19/20]   Good afternoon Families !!!

Its been a while since we posted but be assured that while we have been away from the our FB page we are constantly providing great care to the some of the family's loved ones. During our caregiving services we have noticed that there is sometime decline in the elderly's diets that can be a concern and we want you to learn about the most common factors than can cause an elder to loose interest in food and how you can remedy these issues:

1. Loss of Taste and Smell
Eating involves many senses. In fact, the sense of smell is very closely tied to our ability to taste food and directly influences our appetites. Many adults experience a reduction in their senses of smell and taste as they age. This dulling of the senses greatly affects how seniors perceive food and can actually lessen their feelings of hunger.
To help enhance a senior’s dining experience, a caregiver can alter recipes to include more flavorful spices, herbs and vegetables. For example, using aromatic ingredients like onions, garlic, ginger, celery or carrots at the start of cooking creates deeper, more flavorful foundations for many different cuisines and, of course, produces mouthwatering aromas in the process.

2.Low Vision
Cataracts, age-related macular degeneration and other eye conditions can seriously affect a senior’s vision and how they perceive the foods they eat. If they cannot clearly see what is being served, they are likely to lose interest in food, especially when combined with reductions in taste and smell.
To enhance the visual presentation of a senior’s meals, make a point of serving healthy, colorful foods, separating each part of the meal so they are clearly defined on the plate, and using dishes that contrast with the color of the foods being served. If possible, vary the plate presentations from day to day to keep mealtimes interesting.

3.Medication Side Effects
Some medications, such as Alzheimer’s drugs, some anti-depressants, cardiac drugs, antibiotics and stimulants, have side effects that can affect a person’s eating habits. Ask your loved one’s doctor or pharmacist if any of their prescriptions or medical treatments could be causing a direct reduction in appetite or other related symptoms like constipation, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bad tastes in the mouth or dry mouth. The physician may be able to adjust their medication regimen to minimize these negative effects or recommend working with a dietitian to provide a non-pharmaceutical intervention.

4.Constipation
Slower digestion is often a side effect of the aging process as well as many prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications. Some of the uncomfortable symptoms of constipation like bloating, abdominal pain and a feeling of fullness can cause a reduction in appetite. Consider helping your loved one gradually increase their fiber and fluid intake and encourage them to engage in physical activity as often as they are able. Even a leisurely walk can help get things moving.

5.Oral Health Issues
If a senior appears to have a difficult time chewing, they may have a problem with their teeth, gums or dentures. The shape of the mouth and jaw can change steadily over time, especially if an elder has periodontal disease. Ill-fitting dentures and other oral devices can become loose or uncomfortable or even cause painful sores and irritation.
Foods that are soft, moist and cut into smaller pieces are easier to consume for those who are experiencing oral discomfort. For example, serve vegetables cooked instead of raw. Rather than a steak or pork chop, opt for fish, plant-based proteins like beans and lentils, recipes that include ground meat, or cuts that can be cooked until tender. Serving meals with healthy sauces can moisten ingredients and facilitate chewing and swallowing as well, especially if a loved one is experiencing symptoms of dry mouth.

6.Dining Alone
Meals are often enjoyed more when they are shared with other people. Many seniors grew up with sit-down family dinners where loved ones would discuss the events of the day. Mealtimes can become lonely for seniors who no longer have a significant other to dine and converse with.
Whenever possible, try to share meals with your loved one.

7.Unwillingness to Cook
If a senior is unwilling or unable to shop for and/or cook their own nutritious meals, it can take a toll on their health and eating habits. Many family caregivers opt to cook for their loved ones, but this can be difficult to juggle for long-distance caregivers and those who work and have their own families. Other options include Meals on Wheels and paid meal delivery services like Silver Cuisine and Magic Kitchen. Find a meal delivery provider near you on the Meals on Wheels America website.
In-home care is another alternative that can provide a myriad of benefits. Home care is unique in that it offers companionship, meal preparation and light housekeeping services for seniors in the comfort of their own homes. Professional caregivers can even provide assisted oral feeding for clients who have difficulty with this and other activities of daily living (ADLs).

Hope this helps!

Happy Wednesday and do call us @ 703.840.5500 if you or your loved ones need care.
