Frank Broyles Alzheimer's Caregivers Playbook - When my wife, Barbara, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, I didn't know much about the disease or the impact it would have on our lives. What I did know was that Alzheimer's was not going to destroy our love for life. Our family came together and decided to focus on what we did have instead of what we didn't have. We chose to celebrate our "todays" and our memories, and to make each day the best, with no regrets. Like so many families who are touched my Alzheimer's, we experienced our share of heartbreaks. We also experienced happy times, and those we will remember forever. The information in this book is organized a lot like a coach's playbook. That's because I approached Alzheimer's disease much like I would an opponent on the filed, with a solid game plan and a dedicated team. I had many questions and spent a lot of time looking for answers before I could put together my game plan. This is what I learned. In the middle and late stages of Alzheimer's, it is important to keep your loved one in "her world" to help maintain her dignity. You need to know that when she is in "our world", she is lost, frightened and insecure and irrational behavior is the result. Doing things that are familiar, and being familiar places, will make her feel safe. Feeling safe is the key to keeping her in a "happy place" as much as possible. This "Playbook for Alzheimer's Caregivers" is a social model, not a medical model (doing things with her, not for her ...

Caregivers Caregiving is not a role people usually choose. It seems to choose us, emerging from events and circumstances beyond our control. Spinal cord injury, debilitation or sudden illness may come without warning. This is a job that cannot be skirted and cannot always be delegated. It can be difficult, physically and emotionally. It can be time-consuming. While caring for loved ones can be enormously satisfying, there are days, it seems, that offer little reward. Caregivers, the men and women who care for family members and loved ones, deserve to be recognized and supported for the vital part they play in the lives of people with paralysis. Caregivers may work in isolation from others in similar circumstances but they share much in common. It is important that caregivers connect with each other, to gain strength and to know that they are not alone. It is essential that caregivers know about tools -- the homecare products and services -- that might make their jobs easier. It's also important that caregivers are aware of community and public resources that offer assistance. Caregivers also need to know that support and respite systems exist to address the well-being and health of caregivers themselves.
Coping with Caregiver Depression From a breakout session at the Wisconsin State Conference on Alzheimer's and Related Diseases, Caregiver Speaker, Elaine K. Sanchez, , speaks about the importance of caring for the caregiver. In this segment she talks about recognizing and coping with caregiver depression. According to research by the Family Caregiver Alliance and the National Center for Caregiving, 20% to 50% of caregivers experience depression. The rates are highest among individuals who care for spouses with dementia. It is not unusual for caregivers to experience two different types of depression - reactionary and clinical. Reactionary depression is usually a temporary condition. It is more than sadness. It as a feeling of despondency and dejection, and it is often accompanied by feelings of hopelessness and inadequacy. The factors that contribute to this type of depression are varied. Sometimes a bout of reactionary depression can come on as an emotional response to a specific event. It can also be brought on as a result of stuffing feelings of anger, resentment, and guilt. It is possible to work through this kind of depression. Some caregivers get relief in writing about their feelings. Some find that caregiver support groups provide a safe place to vent negative emotions. You may find that physical activity is a good solution for you. Exercise such as walking, running, bicycling, and aerobic dance release endorphins into your brain, and that can give you an emotional boost. Some ...
