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.
I’m sure you’re always doing your best to provide the best care for your loved one. You want to support them and do the right things – always.
But as the disease progresses, you must adjust the level of care you are providing to meet their changing needs. And unfortunately, at some point you just have to ease up because too much care can actually be detrimental to quality of life.
But how do you know when cheerleading is now longer what is needed?
In this episode of Navigating Rough Terrain with the Dementia Sherpa, Christy addresses this sensitive and complex question to help you know when it’s time to ease up.
