Will his home let you FaceTime or Skype with him? The care people can do it via their phones with you. Sometimes they just want to talk. One struggle I have found is when people w memory impairment think they lost something and don’t know what it is or something hasn’t happened (like a meal) and get frustrated with me and I have trouble conveying it did or we will resolve it and that they will trust what I say. One person in particular has been struggling in a sharp decline and I’m thinking of suggesting notes they will write or a structure at the beginning of the day like “I’m wearing this jacket, ring, watch. I’m going to this activity at this time in this place. Then ordering this specific meal” ect on a list kept w them then later it may be more comforting to them if something is forgotten, easy to locate lost items or say “you left that in your residence, and you accomplished x,y,z today.” Like maybe as each activity or occurrence like a meal is done someone can cross it off for them or it done together and may feel productive or comforting.
Does that make any sense? Like a specific list or day planner set up curated?
I totally relate to people talking about feeling emotionally like shit. I know I bitched about it in this thread. I see the vista ahead and know I will be struggling and scared for a while. I will be poor a very long time from this and my mom, my only living relative, is not well. Additionally I mean I am really depressed by what is going on.
@boes thinking of you and your family today ❤️ The phrase “thoughts and prayers” said in any fashion is so trite.
you guys always make me feel better and elevate me. Like y&r is the trashiest and most phoned in show ever for years but has the classiest, smartest, most grace filled and honorable role models in the community that we have for it! So many of you have 20x my character and gifts. And that’s always been a gift so keep on keeping on @PatsyandEddie @Capricasix @bannana @SweePea59 @Cupid Stunt @peacheslatour @jewel21 and the rest.
