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.
When caring for someone living with dementia, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the day-to-day challenges or focus on the negative aspects of the disease.
But in order to have good quality of life for both you and your person, simple pleasures must be an integral part of your care plan.
Simple pleasures will put a smile on a face and lift one’s spirit. Among other positive aspects, simple pleasures also help create lasting memories.
In this episode of Navigating Rough Terrain with the Dementia Sherpa, Christy Turner and I discuss the importance of incorporating simple pleasures into the daily routine and care plan for your person.
