Navigating Rough Terrain with the Dementia Sherpa
Welcome to Episode 71 of The Alzheimer’s Podcast – Your #1 source for practical tips and insights.
I’m Mike Good of Together in This
My goal is always to empower you and your family to maintain a positive experience, reduce and eliminate the need for unnecessary medications, and make your time together with those you care for, the best it can be.
“What if’s” can be paralyzing if you look at them with a glass half empty view.
What if none of this works for me? What if I can’t figure it out? What if Ido something wrong?
But what if some of it does work for me? What if I do figure it out? What if I have successes along with some mistakes?
Because you are here listening to this podcast and educating yourself, I think you know this, and you are striving to have a glass half full view. But sometimes, you might struggle.
So in this episode of Navigating Rough Terrain with the Dementia Sherpa, Christy and I discuss how to not let the What Ifs stop you from being successful as a care partner.
