this is what the goverment caused us, so much to retire and enjoy life, theyll just be the burden keeping their next generation busy, untill they become the same. my parents are 50 and totally demented and are draining everything because they think they’re always right.
I give 2 options to my clients which help them to choose what to wear. Patience also helps🥰
I don’t know why I’m gonna post this comment but i think that’s gonna release some pain.
I have no siblings to help me and i was very young at that time, i had a difficult time dealing with my father ( may allah have mercy on his soul and grant him paradise ) he was very agressif and anxious i didn’t know how to act. It was outrageous sometimes.
Here i am now facing the same situation 1 year later with my uncle, i’m like his son he was always present for me, he taught me almost everything and i will never be able to return the "goods" he did back. I try to contain my emotions but im feeling like im turning to a cyborg, being empty inside.
No words can describe how it feels, nobody can truly understand the situation but the only thing important is to be patient.
That is really sweet and unrealistic of how it would work with my mom
For those of you taking care of your loved ones, hang in there, it’s not easy, I know, I’ve been there. It is stressful but in the end, you will know you did the right thing. You will have no regrets. But when it gets to the point where it’s no longer manageable, get professional help. The last 2 years of my mom’s life, we had to put her in a memory care facility. Very expensive, but worth every penny to be able to release some of that stress. I had no support from my brothers. I had to sell their house and all their belongings and we lived 11 hours away, so it wasn’t easy to say the least. But now she isn’t suffering any longer. God has come to take her. Stay strong!
This B daughter doesn’t want to help, she’s the one is irritating her Mom,,, I saw this scenarios many times and regularly comes from the family, not the employees, of course, there are exceptions.
I don’t like daughter attitude
A month ago my 85 year old grandma with alzheimer came to live with us. I’ve met her like 4 times in my entire life, and so I never really felt anything about her. Now I despise her. Everythings going to hell, she randomly comes to me and say some gibberish, wakes me up in the middle of the night for more gibberish, makes a mess wherever she passes through, and I kid you not, she took a dump in the shower room. I fear shes gonna live to the point she wont be able to wipe her own ass and I or my mom will have to do it. I’m pretty sure wiping her mother in law’s ass wasnt what my mom was expecting to do when she said yes to my dad’s proposal. My god, if this is a nightmare then wake me up
I am taking care of my 62 year old sister she is augmented and I have taken care of her for 4 years.I am angry that this falls on me with no help from my siblings.My life with her has stopped.I am a widow and I get depressed looking at my life now.I do get angry .I say things I shouldn’t say.This is so hard!I love my sister but I don’t like her.We use to have so much fun but it’s gotten to the point where she can’t even finish a sentence.I pray for patience.
Doesn’t always work
My grandmother has dimentia and acts out wildly. Her level of resistance is almost unbearable.
I would say the daughter was more irritable, agitated, and mean.
I couldn’t get through the first 10 seconds- this is so scripted and not true to reality. Please do not misrepresent such a hard issue.
Stop believing What the doctors says that there’s no cure for diabetes, I was recently cured of my Type 2 Diabetes disease with the herbs medication I ordered from Dr akho1 on his YouTube channel🌱🌿
Mom doing. Samething .but. now mom is in. The. Nursing homes.
This is another godsend
I can tell you from 21 yrs of experience that kindness goes a long ways never force anything, only encourage. Patience & passion is the key.
2 years was really a torment for me, all thanks to Dr. Gbenga who cured me with his herbal mixture for dementia
0:50 ugh she came in with that tone
No wonder she’s resistant; I’d probs tear up if she came to me like that
🙈 her tone from even outside the door
Yeah it’s so irritable when you know you have all the patience in the world but it still doesn’t help anyting seriously 😒 it doesn’t seem to matter there comes a time and a place where you know what I think it’s best if the caregiver recognize hey man my life matters too… I hope I find some wisdom and some things that you have shared cuz this is the first time wOW omg 😳❤️
Mom had. Dementia too.
Best tip from this was the clothing.. simplify wardrobe choise and have easier to put on clothing ..helps so much!
I am overwhelmed and depressed trying to help my elderly father. I don’t know how others are doing. 😔
Oh man… this is “easy” but the amount of self care necessary is……… major major major….
I’m a caregiver and am as nice and sweet as a butterfly but sometimes I have to tell miss thing, “Don’t raise your voice at me or don’t be mean or let’s not talk until you feel better”. We used to get along so well. Now I’m on eggshells. Nothing I do is right and everything I do is not enough. I understand this is what happens, so I’m just putting my emotions aside and work around her until we part ways.
Then I’m retiring…

Women are the superior gender when it comes to dealing with dementia. As a man I’m really jealous. After working a 14 hour day I’m so burnt out I simply can’t cope with all the negativity. Truth is dementia doesn’t get better 😥😥🤯😩😩
A previous care giver i had, with some frustration but NO agresion, changed my mom’s diapers, for many days. Do you think she can recall thos events and probably be de reason that my mom nowadays goes totally mad when I try to help her or change her? Is that possible for a dementia patient recall those negative situations and not the good ones?
Not that easy
Here is my story, my Mom. She passed away in 2019. She lived a full life, lived to be 90. But dementia took her life, please watch this video: https://youtu.be/bTWLPwLdECk
I work with dementia patients, and there’s one guy who always says "Go with the flow". I think it’s relevant here.
3:25 🤣 She’s sick of her shit!!! I would be too
0:17 "my mom’s become resistant to my help."
Seems like "I’ll never do it her way" to the mother.
The daughter could use assertiveness training. To be assertive instead of aggressive or passive.
“It begins with you.” Oh, gosh, I hope not!
The Bible only commands that we HONOR thy father and mother – God doesn’t command we have to love them. Get SO tired of hearing "your loved one" in all things eldercare. It’s more about family duty for many of us. Wish someone would think of a better more all- encompassing term.
Living in the film
The way she opened that door, she would have scared the life out of me.
The second part was much more calming, and in a loving tone.
There are times when my grandma will say lots of negative things or acuse me for letting her down. I don’t care and never lost my temper and go on with her as usual until I get to trick her to restby giving her a chocolate bar. It is the same as taking care of a baby, but with a downgrading difference, that this baby won’t learn anything new but only forget. The main issue for me is that after I’m done with everything and go out I have developed a grumpy atyitude at the others and skip most of the social interactions.
I’ve just started at a work place, I’ve seen this disease destroy my family members.
Amazing video. My channel will give opportunity to explore USA and Canada parks virtually I hope people will enjoy ❤️🇺🇸

There is no particular way to dealing with patients of Alzheimer’s. Caregivers’ frustration will remain no matter what.
Just let her be just hang with her and be gentle ok.
for my confused patients, I have to be simple and straightforward, and everything has to be logical in simple terms. For example, if I have to get a patient up for therapy one day, and if they give issues, being kind and reassuring makes them feel like they can push me around. I have to be kind and straightforward, not nice and willing to get ice cream. Sometimes, I have to be terse, and being a little terse while explaining is what works the best.
Is this acting or an actual Alzheimer’s patient?
How complicated is your Tinnitus condition, mine was very complicated, terrible and uncomfortable. I used so many meds but nothing happened but instead the pain increases. Just 2 weeks of using Doctor Madida Tinnitus herbal medicine all my disturbing noise and pain stopped, I went to hospital to be very sure that it is gone and my Medical doc confirm it that everything appear goods now and me I don’t longer feels the symptoms of Tinnitus for so many weeks now. Truthfully speaking I am so glad that all this are all gone and over because this tinnitus situation almost ruin my life. .
I’m not a english native speaker. Watching this is like tho cds that come with learning books. Totally unrealistic
