Navigating Rough Terrain with the Dementia Sherpa
Welcome to Episode 75 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.
We know that being a dementia care partner can be frustrating and stressful at times. Sometimes there’s so much going on all at once, and it feels so overwhelming, that you can start asking yourself, “What if I’m getting dementia, too?” And that thought causes even more stress!
In this episode of Navigating Rough Terrain with the Dementia Sherpa, Christy and I discuss how to figure out what’s really going on for you (because it’s probably *not* dementia), the simple changes you can make to start feeling better (and the key to even being able to make changes), and we look at a couple of real-life case studies from Christy’s experience.
