White Lies and Alzheimer’s Disease

Published: 11/16/2012 by Carrie Steckl, Ph.D. in Alzheimer’s

Caregivers often wonder whether it's wrong to lie to people with Alzheimer’s disease when trying to convince their loved ones of the truth just isn't working. While telling a white lie might work better, caregivers often feel guilty doing so. This is a perfectly normal way to feel, considering that we’ve been taught all our lives that lying is wrong.

Tips on Managing an Aggressive Alzheimer’s Patient

Published: 02/20/2012 by Carrie Steckl, Ph.D. in Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s disease can produce some expected behaviors in patients as the disease progresses; one of the more troubling for caregivers is unexpected outbursts or aggressive behaviors. While most Alzheimer’s patients outbursts are not of a dangerous nature and usually will play themselves out when properly managed, these behaviors still must be managed in a caring and thoughtful manner.

If you are caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease, mealtimes may be the most pleasant or the most challenging times of the day. While some family members may eat well until the late stages of the disease, others may develop medical and behavioral problems that hinder the desire or ability to enjoy meals with ease.

Quick Stress Relievers For Alzheimer’s Caregivers

Published: 02/10/2012 by Carrie Steckl, Ph.D. in Alzheimer’s

At the Senior Care Society we know all too well that caregivers are at high risk for stress “burnout” if they approach caregiving without the proper backup and planning this labor of love requires. Although being a caregiver is highly rewarding and one of the most caring gifts one can give to their loved one, it is a very demanding day to day task and without proper support (no one can do this job alone) can even be hazardous to the health and well being of both the caregiver and receiver.

Alzheimer’s Caregiving: 10 Essential Tips & Resources

Published: 04/03/2012 by Michelle Seitzer in Alzheimer’s

Caregiving is an ever-changing experience: there are always new lessons, new challenges and new joys throughout the journey. Sometimes, it is that unpredictable nature of caregiving that makes it so difficult to bear, especially for people who like to have a plan. At other times, the flexibility is encouraging, because it means that you can still learn how to do things better and grow stronger through the process, even if you’ve been at the post for years.

Helping a Person with Alzheimer’s Get a Good Night’s Sleep

Published: 08/16/2012 by Carrie Steckl, Ph.D. in Alzheimer’s

Eileen found a rare moment to share a cup of coffee with her friend, Susan, while the home care aide spent time with Eileen’s husband, Mark. When Eileen arrived at the coffee shop, Susan became concerned. “Have you been sleeping?” Susan asked. “I’ve never seen such dark circles under your eyes.” Eileen admitted that she had not been getting more than 4 or 5 hours of sleep a night because Mark had been keeping her up.
