The Alzheimer’s Podcast:
Navigating Rough Terrain with the Dementia Sherpa
Hello, I’m Mike Good of Together in This.
Welcome to episode 64 of The Alzheimer’s Podcast – Your #1 source for practical tips and insights..
Thank you for joining me for another podcast where my goal is always to empower you and your family to maintain a positive experience, reduce and eliminate the need for medications, and make your time together with those you care for, the best it can be.
If the person you are caring for has a form of dementia, then it’s likely they do things that they may not have done in the past. Or maybe, because they have dementia, you think they shouldn’t be doing something.
But understanding why they are doing things is extremely important to providing the best care possible resulting in the best positive experience possible for everyone.
In this episode of Navigating Rough Terrain with the Dementia Sherpa, Christy Turner and I have a discussion to help you better understand why your person is doing these things.
