And The Medal Goes To. . .

28 July 2021

Today in our support group for caregivers of people with younger onset Alzheimer’s disease, one of the caregivers commented that there should be an Olympic medal for successfully moving his wife through the morning routine. He and his wife had been watching the Olympics and it got him thinking what skill it took to help his wife through all the individual steps involved in morning care. The other caregivers, who each had a person in varying stages of Alzheimer’s disease, joined in the conversation. They talked about points awarded or taken away for various tasks.

Excellent, excellent course. Fascinating information and very educational. Keep up the great work because it definitely shows.
