6 days ago · Caring for someone with dementia / Alzheimer's in Caregivers

Welcome aboard. I care for my older sister at our home. It works well for now and my husband is very supportive. My sister listens and does whatever he suggests. Me? Not so much but at least she is here and safe, eats whatever I cook and sleeps like a rock. You will figure out ways to make things easier. Siblings are hard to convince and I can’t count on mine either. There are lots of us on this discussion so ask your questions or solutions or rant any rave. We will understand.

I’m interested in the pedaling thing too.

My grandmother with Alzheimer’s used to talk to herself in a mirror. We at least knew that she wasn’t lonely. If it got to us we could just cover the mirror but we seldom did. At least she is happy.

Sounds like you are on track already!! You may not be able to do a week away, but a day or half day often will do wonders for you.

Go somewhere nearby for the day….. a mall that has benches, water features, food court and safe walking. I go to the library where it is quiet and read magazines I’ve never heard of. There are sometimes dollar theaters around for 11:00 matinee and then take yourself out to lunch. Museums are wonderful especially art museums. You feel like you’ve gone far away but you can check your phone for messages every hour or so to keep your mind at ease.
