BrightStar Care ~ I Have Alzheimer’s, Now What?

I HAVE ALZHEIMER’S, NOW WHAT?

If you been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease, don’t worry, you are not alone. There are people who understand what you are going through, and help is available. There is much you can do in the early stage to cope with the changes ahead. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, it’s normal to experience a range of emotions upon receiving a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s.
Emotions you may have
You may be grieving over the present losses you are experiencing, or the expectation of future changes as the disease progresses. It can be helpful to identify and understand some of the emotions you may experience after receiving your diagnosis.
  • Anger: Your life is taking a different course than the one you and your family had planned. You cannot control the course of the disease.
  • Relief: The changes you were experiencing were cause for concern. A diagnosis validated these concerns by assigning a name to your symptoms.
  • Denial: The diagnosis seems impossible to believe. You may feel overwhelmed by how your life will change as a result of Alzheimer’s.
  • Depression: You may feel sad or hopeless about the way your life is changing.
  • Resentment: You may be asking yourself what you did to deserve your diagnosis or why this is happening to you and not someone else.
  • Fear: You may be fearful of the future and how your family will be affected.
  • Isolation: You may feel as if no one understands what you’re going through or lose interest in maintaining relationships with others.
  • Sense of loss: It may be difficult to accept changes in your abilities.
Taking care of your emotional needs
Coming to terms with your diagnosis and the emotions you are feeling will help you accept your diagnosis, move forward and discover new ways to live a positive and fulfilling life. When working through your feelings, try a combination of approaches. Try the following tips:
  1. Write down your thoughts and feelings about your diagnosis in a journal.
  2. You may find your friends and family struggling with your diagnosis and their feelings. Learn more about how you can help family and friends.
  3. Share your feelings with close family and friends. Speak open and honestly about your feelings.
  4. Surround yourself with a good support system that includes individuals who are also living in the early stage of the disease and understand what you’re going through.
  5. Join an early-stage support group. It can provide you with a safe and supportive environment of peers. To find a support group in your area, check with your local Alzheimer’s Association chapter.
  6. Talk to your doctor if you or others are concerned about your emotional well-being. Your doctor can determine the most appropriate treatment plan to address your concerns.
  7. Seek help from a counselor or clergy member. He or she can help you to see things in a new way and help you understand more fully what you are feeling.
  8. If you are feeling misunderstood or stereotyped because of your diagnosis, learn what you can do to overcome stigma.
  9. Stay engaged. Continue to do the activities you enjoy for as long as you are able.
  10. Take the time your need to feel sad, mourn and grieve.

BrightStar Care ~ The Many Faces of Dementia

THE MANY FACES OF DEMENTIA

In honor of National Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, let’s take a look at another debilitating cognitve affliction – dementia. Here’s a breakdown of the dangerous neurocognitive disorder, according to alz.org:
Physicians often refer to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) to guide them in determining if an individual has dementia and, if so, the condition causing dementia. The latest edition of the manual, DSM-5, classifies dementia as a neurocognitive disorder.
Dementia may be either a major or a mild neurocognitive disorder. An individual must have evidence of significant cognitive decline, and the decline must interfere with independence in everyday activities (for example, assistance may be needed with complex activities such as paying bills or managing medications).
Furthermore, an individual must have evidence of modest cognitive decline, but the decline does not interfere with everyday activities (individuals can still perform complex activities such as paying bills or managing medications, but the activities require greater mental effort). When an individual has these or other symptoms of dementia, a physician must conduct tests to identify the cause.

Different causes of dementia are associated with distinct symptom patterns and brain abnormalities.

Increasing evidence from long-term observational and autopsy studies indicates that many people with dementia, especially those in the older age groups, have brain abnormalities associated with more than one cause of dementia, otherwise known as mixed dementia.
In some cases, individuals do not have dementia, but instead have a condition whose symptoms mimic those of dementia. Common causes of dementia-like symptoms are depression, delirium, side effects from medications, thyroid problems, certain vitamin deficiencies and excessive use of alcohol.
Unlike dementia, these conditions often may be reversed with treatment. One meta-analysis, a method of analysis in which results of multiple studies are examined, reported that 9 percent of people with dementia-like symptoms did not in fact have dementia, but had other conditions that were potentially reversible.

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN WOMEN AND MEN IN THE PREVALENCE OF ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE AND OTHER DEMENTIAS

More women than men have Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Almost two-thirds of Americans with Alzheimer’s are women. Of the 5.1 million people age 65 and older with Alzheimer’s in the United States, 3.2 million are women and 1.9 million are men.
There are a number of potential reasons why more women than men have Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. The prevailing view has been that this discrepancy is due to the fact that women live longer than men on average, and older age is the greatest risk factor for Alzheimer’s.
Many studies of incidence (which indicates risk of developing disease) of have found no significant difference between men and women in the proportion who develop Alzheimer’s or other dementias at any given age.
However, limited new research suggests that risk could be higher for women, potentially due to biological or genetic variations or even different life experiences. Data from the Framingham Study suggests that because men have a higher rate of death from cardiovascular disease than women in middle age, men who survive beyond age 65 may have a healthier cardiovascular risk profile and thus a lower risk for dementia than women of the same age, though more research is needed to support this finding.

RACIAL AND ETHNIC DIFFERENCES

Although there are more non-Hispanic whites living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias than people of any other racial or ethnic group in the United States, older African-Americans and Hispanics are more likely than older whites to have Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
A review of many studies by an expert panel concluded that older African-Americans are about twice as likely to have Alzheimer’s and other dementias as older whites, and Hispanics are about one and one-half times as likely to have Alzheimer’s and other dementias as older whites.
Variations in health, lifestyle and socioeconomic risk factors across racial groups likely account for most of the differences in risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias by race. Despite some evidence that the influence of genetic risk factors on Alzheimer’s and other dementias may differ by race, genetic factors do not appear to account for the large prevalence differences among racial groups.
Instead, health conditions such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes, which increase risk for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, are believed to account for these differences as they are more prevalent in African-American and Hispanic people.
Lower levels of education and other socioeconomic characteristics in these communities may also increase risk. Based on data for Medicare beneficiaries age 65 and older, Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia had been diagnosed in 8 percent of white older adults, 11 percent of African-Americans and 12 percent of Hispanics.

Home Instead ~ Avoiding Med Mismanagement

Avoiding Med Mismanagement

Prescription drugs are a scary business and sometimes, with the best will in the world, it’s easy for seniors and their loved ones to get a little mixed up on what they’re taking, when they should be taking it, where it’s stored, and what might cause a negative interaction.
In a survey, more than half of the seniors polled said they took at least five different prescription drugs regularly, and about 25 percent of the seniors took between 10 and 19 pills each day. So it’s really no surprise why they get confused!
Unfortunately, because many of these drugs are very strong, and medication regimens are often customized to a senior’s specific health condition and the other meds they are taking, there is precious little room for error.
Here are some ways you can help:
Make a List: This should include every prescription medicine your senior is taking, as well as anything over the counter such as a vitamin supplement, probiotic or low-dose aspirin. Other items to include:
  • Your senior’s name and date of birth
  • Each drug’s name
  • Dosage
  • Time/frequency taken
  • Whether food or liquid should be taken with it
  • Food or beverages to be avoided (i.e. leafy greens for blood thinners; alcohol)
  • Pharmacy and health care provider names, addresses and telephone numbers
  • Family emergency contact information
Keep a copy of the list prominently posted in your senior’s home and make sure one or two family members also have a copy. When filling prescriptions, bring it to the pharmacist for review.
One-stop shop for meds: Consolidating all prescriptions at one pharmacy is not only more convenient, it can help the pharmacist keep better track of any drugs your senior is taking and any possible interactions or side effects.
Mail-order?: If this is an option, it might help you take care of ordering your senior’s meds for them so they don’t run out. Just be sure to regularly consult a pharmacist in-person to red flag possible interactions or side effects.
Read and save the literature: We know, we know, it can seem like reams of paper come with every prescription, but it really is valuable information to prevent or alert you to new complications.
Get a med tray: They come in all shapes and sizes (consult your pharmacist for the one that suits your senior’s medicine regimen best). This will help both you and your senior keep track of what’s being taken.

Jackson White Law ~ Staying In-Network for Long-Term Care

Staying In-network for Long-term Care

Richard A. White JacksonWhite Law, Mesa Arizona
Question: I filed an Arizona Long Term Care System application for my wife nearly a year ago, and I have had a horrible time trying to manage and understand the process on my own. After many months of working on this process, I am now being told that my wife has to move to a different facility in order to qualify for the benefit. Can ALTCS really tell me where my wife has to live?
Answer: ALTCS will never decide where your wife will live — this is your decision to make. Before ALTCS will approve your wife’s case, however, she must reside in an approved setting.
To clarify, ALTCS is just like any other insurance provider insofar as it will only provide coverage to its members who seek care from an in-network provider. Just like with any other insurer, ALTCS has a network of providers with which it is contracted to provide care.
As long as the setting in which you place your wife has an ALTCS contract, she will be eligible for coverage if she is otherwise eligible for the benefit.
It is worth mentioning that ALTCS contracts with care providers all along the healthcare continuum. There are approved in-home care providers, group homes, day care centers, assisted living facilities and skilled nursing facilities. Further, it is not as if there is a clear demarcation between ALTCS and non-ALTCS facilities — all ALTCS facilities also have non-ALTCS residents; and ALTCS members are given the same level of treatment and care as others.
If the only thing preventing your wife from qualifying for ALTCS is this setting requirement, it would certainly be worth considering moving to an approved setting to help facilitate eligibility. You have many good options available to you, and this benefit is too valuable to forgo.

Home Instead Senior Care ~ How to Pull Off Sunday Dinners as a Family

Easy Ways to Pull Off Sunday Dinners as a Family

June 2, 2015

Sunday dinner used to be a time when the entire family—and sometimes the extended family—gathered to talk, to laugh and to share the family lore and the day-to-day details of each others’ lives. Sometimes the “little things” about dining together—the emotional connection and casual conversation—are more important than the meal itself.
Why Intergenerational Dining?
The hectic pace of life today may make it feel impossible to bring the family together for dinner. But sharing meals together can benefit all generations within a family. Children get to hear their family’s oral history directly from the older generations, and seniors enjoy the companionship, which may lead to real health benefits, such as improved nutrition.
Home Instead, Inc., franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care® network, recently conducted research among North Americans with seniors living nearby. The Sunday Dinner Pledge survey revealed:
• 61% believe their senior relatives eat better when they dine with other family members

• 92% feel eating with multigenerational family members is a good way to reconnect

• 87% believe sharing sit-down meals with senior relatives help their loved one deal with loneliness

Start with a Simple Commitment
As a busy caregiver, you might be thinking, “where am I going to find time to plan a big family dinner?” If you feel this way, you’re not alone.
While nearly 90 percent of respondents to the Sunday Dinner Pledge survey said they would like to share sit-down dinners with their senior loved ones once a month, about half of them said conflicting schedules and lack of time prevented them from doing this. Can you relate?
Consider this: when you prioritize something in your life, you tend to find the time to get it done. And that can include regular meals with your senior loved one.
To help make family mealtime a priority in your life, sign the Sunday Dinner PledgeSM . When you do, you not only will feel committed to making family dinners happen regularly, but the Home Instead Senior Care Foundation® will donate $1 for each pledge (up to a total of $20,000 in the U.S.) to the Meals on Wheels America program.
Create an Easy Menu Plan
To make it more feasible to plan and cook an intergenerational meal on a regular basis, start by choosing an easy menu plan. This may include favorite family recipes that can be made ahead of time, or new recipes with a limited ingredient list.
If you need recipe ideas that will please all of your family members, try theSunday Dinner Planner. In three quick steps, you can choose a main ingredient, review a selection of recipes and add one to your planner. Then you can get the planner emailed to you for printing and reference.
Use Activities to Foster Interactions
Once you get into the Sunday dinner routine, you may find conversation doesn’t flow as easily as it did in the beginning. Everyone runs out of interesting family news from time to time. When this happens, you can refer to this list of conversation starters for the dinner table, or plan an after-dinner activity to engage the whole family.
The Sunday Dinner Planner includes suggestions like family movie night and hobbies. You can add these to your planner in the same way you added recipes.
Involve Senior Loved Ones in Meal Planning
And speaking of activities, be sure to include your senior loved ones in the planning and meal preparations as much as possible. They may enjoy the renewed sense of purpose they get from participating as much as the meal itself.
In advance of the meal, consult your senior family member about food preferences. Does she have a particular recipe she’d like you to cook? Would she like to assemble and bring a dish of her own? When you empower your senior loved one to contribute, you give her a real sense of satisfaction.
Dine Together on Sunday—or Any Day
By taking the Sunday Dinner Pledge, you’re committing to sharing a monthly meal with your senior loved ones. You don’t have to do it on Sundays. Pick a day that works well for your schedule.
No matter which day you choose to dine with your senior family member, your whole family will benefit from this sociable interaction.
After all, who better to describe the distinctive smell of trout cooking over a smoky campfire than Grandpa himself?

Home Instead Senior Care ~ 5 Questions to Ask Before Getting a Senior a Pet

Ongoing research seeks to pinpoint the therapeutic benefits of pet ownership (such as reduced blood pressure), but we don’t really need science to tell us about the many ways pets can enhance our lives. They offer a furry shoulder to cry on and unconditional love. They offer amusement and loyal companionship. No wonder over 66 million American and 7.5 million Canadian households own a pet.
Pet ownership can hold real benefits for seniors, too. As Sandra shared in the online Remember for Alzheimer’s Facebook community: “My husband is in advanced Alzheimer’s. We have a cocker spaniel, six years old, who we have had since she was eight weeks old. My hubby loves this dog to no end. Sadly he cannot remember her name now, but he is still her best friend. They sit in the same recliner all day long.”
Pets may also provide comfort to caregivers, as Mona described:
“My mom has Alzheimer’s, end stages. She stays at home and my dad, myself and a couple of others take care of her. My dad got a dog in November, and loves him so much. He treats him like his son. His dog Archie loves my dad and helps my dad not to be lonely, when I’m not there.”
Of course, pet ownership may not be appropriate for every senior. Here are five questions to consider before bringing a pet into your loved one’s life.
1. Is anyone allergic?
It’s hard to enjoy a pet if it makes you sneeze, break out in a skin rash or suffer an asthma attack. That’s why it’s important to rule out any medical reasons for not getting a pet.
First make sure your loved one has no allergies to pet dander. Next, poll everyone who provides care for your loved one to see if they have pet allergy issues. If anyone is allergic, then you should probably avoid getting a pet. Despite the popular term “hypoallergenic pet,” you need to realize that technically there is no such thing as an allergy-free animal.
2. Who will care for Fido?
Caring for a pet can provide a senior loved one with a real sense of purpose. No longer is your family member only a care-receiver; now he or she can be a care-giver, too.
But not all seniors may be able to take care of a pet on a daily basis. Be sure to take into account their ability to meet its needs—now and in the future. Will your loved one remember to feed and water the animal? Will he or she be able to walk the dog twice a day?
If physical or cognitive decline renders your senior family member unable to care for the pet, who will step in to help? If you think you eventually may need to remove the pet from the home, realize it can be an emotionally wrenching experience for both your family member and the animal.
3. What breed makes the best couch potato?
Companionship represents one of the greatest benefits of pets for seniors. Simply having a warm body to hug, stroke and love can keep a senior calm and congenial.
For this reason, you probably want to avoid getting a high-strung or high-energy dog or cat. Instead, opt for animals that exhibit an easygoing temperament. Some dog breeds, such as golden retrievers, are known for their laid-back nature. And sedate, elderly cats can be hard for shelters to adopt out, creating a win for both your loved one and the kitty. Consider choosing an animal that will be happy to sit quietly and snuggle with your loved one for hours on end.
4. Are you a cuddler?
Golden retrievers may be couch potatoes, but they’re not lap dogs. If your senior family member wants a pet that can be held and cuddled, be sure to get one of an appropriate size. And if bathing and grooming the pet won’t be an issue for you or your loved one, you might consider choosing a breed with longer, silkier hair. These animals can be a delight to touch and hug.
5. Who will choose the new pet?
It can be hard to cope with the loss of physical function or the cognitive decline that often accompany aging. Seniors often report feeling depressed when they become dependent on others for their care. Having a pet to take care of can help a senior feel needed again.
To start that journey to restored purpose, let your family member choose the pet instead of surprising them with a dog or cat as a gift. Allowing your loved one to pick out the new pet confers a sense of control and decision-making power they may be lacking in other areas of their life.
Take a trip to the shelter together and let your senior relative meet a selection of animals to see how they interact. If you’re concerned about your loved one’s decision-making ability, call the shelter ahead of time and tell them what types of pets you’re looking for. That way, your family member will interact with a pre-screened group that meets your criteria.
A furry family member can be a valuable part of your caregiving team. They offer boundless, unconditional love, lend a non-judgmental ear when you need to vent and can provide an amusing distraction with their antics.
