Today, is the third installment of our Seven Stages of Alzheimer's series. On this episode we will be discussing the final stage, stage seven. The final stage of Alzheimer's is often referred to as end-stage Alzheimer's. First, we'll discuss what happens during this final stage and how you, as a caregiver, friend, and family member can support your loved one during this time. Then, we'll move on to how you can prepare yourself for what will happen. Finally, we'll talk about the importance of a support system and asking for help. Now let's move on to the rest of the show.   Alzheimer's is a progressive disease that ultimately ends in death. This seventh and final stage is scary. Caring for a loved one with late-stage Alzheimer's is difficult and impossible to do alone. We want to stress the importance of reaching out to your own support group when you need help. And, if you are finding yourself unable to take care of your loved one on your own, talk to your doctor. Depending on how much time your loved one has left, your doctor may suggest hospice care, a memory care facility, or professional home care. Taking care of a loved one with Alzheimer's is difficult, but it can be even harder in this final stage, so make sure you are doing what is best for you, as well as what is best for your loved one.   According to Senior Link, stage seven is the final stage in the progression of Alzheimer's disease. At this stage, most people lose their ability to speak or communicate and they often require assistance with most of their activities, including things such as toileting, eating, dressing, and bathing. Because people in stage seven often lose psychomotor capabilities, which is what helps someone think and act upon that thought, they may be unable to walk or require significant assistance when walking. On average, this final stage lasts two and a half years and ends when the person struggling with the disease passes away.   Alzheimer's disease is a progressive disease that gradually worsens over a period of four to twenty years. On average, however, most people live between four and eight years following a diagnosis. The progression of the disease is different for each individual person, but family members and caregivers should familiarize themselves with the typical stages that occur throughout the progression of the disease. It's a challenging road to travel for both the person with Alzheimer's disease and those who love them, but knowing what to expect can help to ease some stress and uncertainty.   Crossroads Hospice and Palliative Care states that it is important for caregivers to know when an individual with dementia is close to the end of their life because it helps ensure they receive the right amount of care at the right time. It can be difficult to know exactly when this time is due to the variable nature of dementia's progression, but understanding common end-of-life symptoms of seniors with dementia can help. However, it cannot be overstated that symptoms, progression, and signs of Alzheimer's can vary widely from individual to individual. A well-respected and renowned dementia expert that we work closely with has summed up the comparison of dementia patients perfectly when she explains to families that “when you see a person with dementia, you've only seen that one person.” Again, this is because it can vary widely between individuals.   In the final six months, many people with Alzheimer's are diagnosed with life-threatening conditions, such as cancer, congestive heart failure, or COPD and they tend to have an increase in hospital visits and admissions. In the final two or three months, someone with Alzheimer's will also lose their ability to speak. They may be able to speak short sentences at a time during the start of this period, but they will only be able to utter one or two words at a time if any by the end. They will also experience difficulty swallowing. Choking and aspiration is a very large concern during this final stage of Alzheimer's. They will also lose the ability to walk or sit up without assistance. If they haven't already, they will also begin experiencing incontinence.   In the final days and weeks leading up to the very end, your loved one will have increasingly cold hands, feet, arms, and legs. They will also lose their ability to swallow. Many people with Alzheimer's pass away due to this reason. Many people with Alzheimer's see an increase in restlessness and agitation, as well as an increase in the amount of time sleeping or being unconscious. And finally, they will experience changes in breathing, possibly due to the inability to swallow. They may take shallow breaths or stop breathing for short periods of time.   If your loved one begins experiencing any of the symptoms we just listed, speak to your doctor about your loved one's end-of-life plan. Patients with dementia are eligible to receive hospice care if they have a diagnosis of six months or less to live if the disease progresses in a typical fashion and these symptoms typically appear when someone with Alzheimer's has six months or less left. Talk to your doctor and a hospice professional about how they can help provide added care and support for your loved one during this extremely hard and upsetting time.   Right now, Alzheimer's is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States and unfortunately, there is no cure for this disease as of yet. If you are currently dealing with this disease, either with yourself or a loved one, know that you are not alone. Over five million Americans are living with Alzheimer's. Join a support group in your area to connect with others in your situation or consider going to therapy. Find whatever works best for you and your family. You can also call the Alzheimer's Association's hotline anytime, at 1-800-272-3900. They have a lot of resources and knowledge to offer.   Crossroads Hospice and Palliative Care also says that perhaps the hardest thing for families is when a loved one with dementia is no longer able to eat or swallow. Because an individual with dementia is unable to understand the benefits of feeding tubes or IV drips, they will often be incredibly distressed and attempt to remove them, causing added pain and risk of infection. Instead, focus on keeping the individual comfortable. Supporting them with mouth care to prevent their mouth from becoming dry will allow them to make their final transition in peace.   Now that you know what will happen to your loved one during the seventh and final stage of Alzheimer's, let's move on to how you can help your loved one during this time.   The Alzheimer's Association says that as the disease progresses and intensifies, around-the-clock care is usually required. During the late stages, your role as a caregiver focuses on preserving their quality of life and dignity. Although a person in the late stage of Alzheimer's typically loses the ability to talk and express needs, research tells us that some core of the person's self may remain. This means you may be able to continue to connect with your loved one throughout the late stage of the disease.   At this point in the disease, the world is primarily experienced through the senses. You can express your caring through touch, sound, sight, taste, and smell. You can try playing their favorite music, reading portions of books that have meaning for them, or looking at old photos together. You can also make one of their favorite foods. Try rubbing lotion with a favorite scent into their skin and brushing their hair. Sitting outside together on a nice day can also be a way to engage them and spend time with them.   If your loved one is living in a facility, the best way to help them is to visit them, even if it is difficult for you. A touching story we read that we hope can help you and your family have a sense of hope during this time, is that of Tony Hawke, the skateboarder, and his mother. In a blog post for Alzheimer's Association, Tony Hawke wrote that when he visits his mother now, she doesn't recognize him. Sometimes there is a slight glimmer in her eye, sometimes she babbles incoherently, and sometimes she uncontrollably bursts into tears.   On this particular day, they mostly sat in silence. He gave her updates on their family and fed her Coca-Cola through a straw every few minutes (which she still loves, even in her catatonic condition). But then he noticed her fingers twitching. He's not sure for how long; maybe they'd been moving the whole time and he wasn't paying attention.   As he watched, he was reminded of her habit of typing unconsciously throughout his life. And even though it may have only been her body (yet again) betraying her, it gave him comfort knowing that perhaps she is still in there somewhere typing away about her life, her experiences, her feelings, and their current conversation. Most of his visits end with a feeling of despair and impending finality, but on this day, he left with a sense of hope.   You can find the entire story written by Tony Hawke in our show notes for this episode. If you have time, we highly recommend reading it. It can be helpful to see what someone else in a similar situation is going through.   If you are currently experiencing the early stages of the disease, we know you probably don't want to think about this last stage yet, but now is the time to talk about end-of-life care and any wishes your loved one may have for when the time comes. It is better to create a plan with your loved one than to second guess your own decisions later. If you decide to be the primary caregiver during this final stage, there are several things you can do to help make your loved one as comfortable as possible, and after all, that's all you really can do at this stage.   One of the most important daily caregiving tasks during late-stage Alzheimer's, according to the Alzheimer's Association, is monitoring eating. As a person becomes less active, they will require less food. But, a person in this stage of the disease also may forget to eat or lose their appetite. Adding sugar to food and serving them their favorite foods may encourage eating and their doctor may even suggest supplements between meals to add calories if weight loss is a problem.   The Alzheimer's Association also says that difficulty with toileting is very common at this stage in the disease. The person may need to be walked to the restroom and guided through the process. Incontinence is also common during late-stage Alzheimer's and is something your loved one will likely experience. For more information on toileting, you can listen to our recent Quick Tips episode on Helping in the Bathroom. You can find the episode on our website, on our YouTube channel, or wherever you get your podcasts. You can also find more episodes on Alzheimer's and dementia on our YouTube playlist.   During this final stage, your loved one will have decreased mobility and will likely be unable to stand or sit up on their own. Being bedbound or chairbound can introduce new health risks for your loved one. Make sure to move your loved one every two hours to prevent bedsores and improve their blood circulation. Helping them do muscle exercises can stop their joints from freezing, but make sure you consult their doctor before doing any exercises with them. Similarly, make sure you have proper training on how to lift your loved one so that you do not injure them in the process or yourself. A nurse or a physical therapist can teach you how to properly lift someone, but for now, know that you should never lift someone by pulling on their arms or shoulders.   Your loved one will be more vulnerable to illnesses and infections during this stage. It is important to keep their mouth and teeth clean and clear to reduce the risk of bacteria that can cause pneumonia. The flu can also lead to your loved one getting pneumonia. Make sure you, your loved one, and those in close contact with them get the flu vaccine to lower their risk of developing pneumonia. Finally, treat cuts and scrapes immediately and call their doctor if they have a deep cut or if it doesn't heal.   The Alzheimer's Association states that communicating pain becomes difficult in the late stages of the disease. If you suspect that your loved one is in pain or is suffering from an illness, see a doctor as soon as possible to find the cause. In some cases, pain medication may be prescribed.   To recognize pain and illness, look for physical signs. Signs of pain and illness include pale skin tone, flushed skin tone, dry, pale gums, mouth sores, vomiting, feverish skin, and swelling of any part of the body. You should also pay attention to nonverbal signs. Gestures, spoken sounds, and facial expressions (wincing, for example) may signal pain or discomfort. And you should be alert to changes in behavior. Anxiety, agitation, trembling, shouting, and sleeping problems can all be signs of pain. If you suspect your loved one is in pain, call their doctor immediately. They can help make your loved one comfortable with medication.   Now that we've covered how you can help your loved one during this stage, let's move on to how you can prepare yourself for what happens during this stage and after.   The National Institute on Aging says that Dementia causes the gradual loss of thinking, remembering, and reasoning abilities, making it difficult for those who want to provide supportive care at the end of life to know what is needed. Because people with advanced dementia can no longer communicate clearly, they cannot share their concerns. Is Uncle Bert refusing food because he's not hungry or because he's confused? Why does Grandma seem agitated? Is she in pain and needs medication to relieve it, but can't tell you?   As these conditions progress, caregivers may find it hard to provide emotional or spiritual comfort. How can you let Grandpa know how much his life has meant to you? How do you make peace with your mother if she no longer knows who you are? Someone who has severe memory loss might not take spiritual comfort from sharing family memories or understand when others express what an important part of their life this person has been. Palliative care or hospice care can be helpful in many ways to families of people with dementia.   Sensory connections—targeting someone's senses, like hearing, touch, or sight—can bring comfort. Being touched or massaged can be soothing. Listening to music, white noise, or sounds from nature seem to relax some people and lessen their agitation.   There are many things you can do to prepare yourself for this final stage of Alzheimer's. As we mentioned earlier, during the first few stages of Alzheimer's, you should make an end-of-life plan with your loved one so you can know how to best uphold their wishes. If you didn't make a plan early on, it's not too late to create one now. You may not be able to include your loved one while making their plan, but you can sit down with your family and caregiving team to create a plan together.   When making an end-of-life plan, think about what you think your loved one would want, but also consider what is best for them. You also have to think about what is best for you during this time. If you think your loved one would want to stay in your care at home, but you cannot take care of them by yourself anymore, that is something you need to seriously consider. Ultimately, you are trying to make your loved one as comfortable as possible during this last part of their life.   The National Institute on Aging also tells us that quality of life is an important issue when making healthcare decisions for people with dementia. For example, medicines are available that may delay or keep symptoms from becoming worse for a little while. Medicines also may help control some behavioral symptoms in people with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease. However, some caregivers might not want drugs prescribed for people in the later stages of Alzheimer's. They may believe that the person's quality of life is already so poor that the medicine is unlikely to make a difference. If the drug has serious side effects, they may be even more likely to decide against it.   When making care decisions for someone else near the end of life, consider the goals of care and weigh the benefits, risks, and side effects of the treatment. You may have to make a treatment decision based on the person's comfort at one end of the spectrum and extending life or maintaining abilities for a little longer at the other.   With dementia, a person's body may continue to be physically healthy while his or her thinking and memory are deteriorating. This means that caregivers and family members may be faced with very difficult decisions about how treatments that maintain physical health, such as installing a pacemaker, fit within the care goals.   Now that we've talked some about how you can prepare yourself for the final stage, we're going to move on to the final part of this episode, which is what happens after.   The National Institute on Aging states that many family members taking care of a person with advanced dementia at home feel relief when death happens—for themselves and for the person who died. It is important to realize such feelings are normal. You may feel guilty that you are feeling relieved, and that's normal, too. Calling the Alzheimer's hotline or joining a local support group may be beneficial after your loved one has passed on.   After your loved one is gone, don't forget to celebrate their life and remember that Alzheimer's wasn't their identity. Remember the person they were before the disease set in. Look over scrapbooks you made together and photo albums or other items that remind you of them.   The National Institute on Aging says that hospice—whether used at home or in a facility (such as a nursing home)—gives family caregivers needed support near the end of life, as well as help with their grief, both before and after their family member dies. If you used hospice during the final stage, they can be another great resource you can utilize even after the passing of your loved one.   Many people find it helpful to get involved after their loved one is no longer with them. Joining an Alzheimer's advocacy group or donating to a research center are both good ways to stay involved in the Alzheimer's community. You can also offer support and help to other families if you want to. You are in a unique position to help others that are currently going through what you have been through. Offering support to others can also help you reclaim a sense of purpose if you are struggling after losing your loved one.   This stage and this disease are hard to go through and impossible to go through alone. Reach out to your loved ones and your community for support. There is no cure now, but one day soon, we hope we will be able to End Alzheimer's together.

#98 Still Around Because of the Coop - Melissa Collman, Cloud Cap Farms

The year was 1924. Gary Moore's grandfather, Melissa Collman's great grandfather, bought acreage in Boring, Oregon to start his dairy farm. But there's a backstory. The grandfather left Switzerland for the U.S. at age 15. He then travelled to Wisconsin to milk cows by hand, and finally trekked across the US to Oregon to found what is now Cloud Cap Farms. He was a colorful character and even had a reindeer herd he would put in the local parade at Christmas time. He also was a traditionalist, using horses to plow the fields and milking the cows by hand as he had learned. When the farming age changed, he grudgingly accepted tractors and milking machines, although he never trusted them. Then in the late 70s, grandson Gary came back to be part of the company and began getting the farm in tune with the times, including implementing artificial insemination to strengthen the heard. In the 80s, things got tough and the family had to try new and revolutionary methods to keep the farm alive. In 1999, a visit from George Siemon, CEO of Organic Valley Coop changed everything. George came through the area looking to increase the organic milk run into the Pacific Northwest. George had been told to visit specific farms, luckily including Cloud Cap, to join the Coop. Gary was thrilled but Grandpa was terrified that the cows would get sick from converting to the organic model and that the whole farm would go bankrupt. Gary deferred to his Grampa for the time, but after Grampa's passing, Gary got hold of Organic Valley and joined in 2004. Being part of the Organic Valley has been great because their model and mission is to protect the family dairies. It's also been great for Melissa as she actually worked for the coop for some years and still helps occasionally. Organic Valley also makes their farmers part of their marketing team and gives them all a chance to get to know each other and to learn from each other. The coop is now 1,700 farms with over 80% of the dairies with herds less than 100 cows. Currently Clud Cap's milk is processed in Portland, Oregon. So has it been worth it to be part of the coop? Absolutely. According to Melissa, Cloud Cap Farms probably wouldn't be around today without the coop. As proof, she points out that there is no dairy within 45 minutes of Cloud Cap, when there used to be 20 on their road alone. Her county alone has seen a 50% drop in dairies in two years, so there is no doubt Cloud Cap is a survivior and Melissa credits the coop. Dairy farmers are in the industry for the passion, for the cows and they rarely get rich. So when the market eventually swings down, those farms without some financial padding get wiped out. But being part of Oraganic Valley has added stability to the financial side of the business by taking out the high and low swings of the market. This has created a much more solid future for the family and now the fifth generation is fully and happily engaged.

Today, we are going to be talking about what to do when your loved one stops recognizing you. We'll discuss at what stage someone with Alzheimer's typically forgets who their loved ones are, as well as methods to prompt memory, connect without memory, and communicate. Now let's move on to the rest of the show.   According to the National Institute on Aging, Alzheimer's disease is a brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills and, eventually, the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. The disease begins making changes in the brain years before symptoms show. Over many years, the disease steals pieces of a person, but when will your loved one no longer recognize you? Let's take a look at the seven stages of Alzheimer's to find out.   During stage one, someone with Alzheimer's will have no impairment due to the disease and will only be diagnosed through brain scans. Stages two and three are where symptoms begin to show. Someone with Alzheimer's will begin to have mild cognitive decline. They may forget where they put the keys or struggle with paying their bills. During these first three stages, the symptoms all appear as the normal signs of aging, and many people go undiagnosed.   Stage four is where many are diagnosed. During this stage, someone with dementia will experience increased forgetfulness and may have difficulties in social situations. Those close to someone with dementia can usually see the early signs of dementia during this stage, as well. Your loved one may forget your name during this stage, but they can usually recall it after some time. They normally recognize you even if they can't remember your name.   Stage five shows a moderately severe cognitive decline. Individuals in this stage often need help doing daily living activities, such as cooking, cleaning, and even possibly using the bathroom. At this stage, many people with dementia are unable to live on their own and need some level of care throughout the day and night. During this stage, your loved one will need help with daily living activities, but Alzheimer's.net says that they will still maintain functionality. They typically can still bathe and toilet independently. They also usually still know their family members and some detail about their personal histories, especially their childhood and youth.   According to Seniorlink, stage six marks a period in which a person requires substantial assistance to carry out day-to-day activities. They may have little memory of recent events and forget the names of close friends or family members. Many people in stage six have limited memory of their earlier lives and will also have difficulty completing tasks or successfully exhibiting cognitive skills such as counting backward from 10.   People in stage six may also begin to experience incontinence of bowel or bladder, and speech ability is often diminished. Significant personality changes may also be noticeable at this stage, as individuals may suffer from delusions, anxiety, or agitation.   Alzheimer's.net tells us that stage seven is the final stage of Alzheimer's. Because the disease is a terminal illness, people in stage seven are nearing death, and will ultimately succumb to the disease. In stage seven of the disease, people lose the ability to communicate or respond to their environment. While they may still be able to utter words and phrases, they have no insight into their condition and need assistance with all activities of daily living.   For more information about the seven stages of Alzheimer's, you can listen to our recent series on the Seven Stages. Don't have time for all 5 episodes? We also released a recap episode on the Seven Stages of Alzheimer's, as well. You can find it on our website, our Dementia and Alzheimer's playlist on our Official YouTube channel, and wherever you get your podcasts.   It isn't until the last three stages that your loved one will have trouble recognizing you. If your loved one is in the early stages of the disease, now is the perfect time to learn best practices and techniques to communicate and connect with your loved one. If your loved one is in the later stages, now is still the perfect time to learn, too! It's never too late to try new ways to connect with your loved one. Your loved one can sense that you are making an effort to connect with them and feel the sentiments behind it even if they do not recognize you.   VeryWell Health says that sometimes people write off visiting loved ones with dementia by saying that since they won't remember the visit a few minutes from now, it's pointless to visit.   Research has demonstrated that it's not just the memory that matters here; it's also the emotion created by a positive visit. What's important to note is that the positive emotion from an encouraging and supportive visit can last much longer than the specific memory of that visit.   You may have impacted that person's whole day by changing her feelings and behavior. Although she might not be able to recall that you visited her, the feelings you created in her can change how she interacts with others and improve her mood.     Next time you think it doesn't matter, think again. The benefit of your visit might last long after you've gone.     Your loved one may become confused at times, which as you know, is to be expected with this disease. According to Dementia UK, some people with dementia appear to ‘travel back in time', reliving memories from when they were younger. They might expect grown-up children to be small again, or expect their parents to still be alive, or even revert back in their mind to previous marriages or relationships. Whenever your loved one is experiencing problems with their memory, there are a few memory cues you can provide to help them back into the present.   Dementia UK suggests putting up photos around the house of important times you were together, such as weddings, birthdays, and children's parties. You should show the progression of time in these photos, so that they show a spouse or partner when young, but also throughout time and how they appear now. You can also keep a photo album on display with the photos clearly marked with people's names, the year, and the event in chronological order.   What you wear can be a clue as to who you are in relation to your loved one. You can wear clothes around the house that your loved one would associate with you; these could include a favorite item of clothing, like a flannel or a piece of jewelry, or popular styles from when you were younger.   You should also make use of the other senses. Sight on its own can be a good enough memory cue, but combining it with the other senses can be an even greater help to your loved one. If you have a signature scent, such as an aftershave, perfume, or even deodorant, wear it around your loved one. Encourage your loved one to wear their favorite scents, as well. Often the sense of smell can evoke positive memories when words cannot.   Similarly, cooking aromatic foods your loved one likes can bring back memories. Cooking together, as long as you are taking all the necessary safety precautions, can be a fun activity to do together and if it is something you have regularly done together in the past, it can be a great example of a creative method of prompting your loved one's memory.   Listening to music or watching a favorite movie or tv show together can also help your loved one remember who you are. It is important to note that you should not try to have a conversation while listening to music or watching television. It is hard for your loved one to concentrate on one thing and multitasking can confuse them more.   If your loved one doesn't recognize you, no matter if you are coming for a visit or if they live with you full-time, do not ask them if they know who you are. This question will make them uncomfortable and they may also feel like you are belittling them if they don't know the answer.   Whenever your loved one doesn't know you, try to move past that and distract them with small talk. You can say it's a beautiful day out, isn't it? After they respond to you, you can then try one of the methods we just discussed to see if their memory will return. If they still don't recognize you just move on. Your loved one doesn't have to recognize you to still enjoy spending time with you.   Watching your loved one lose themselves and constantly interacting with the disease through them is draining. The Alzheimer's Society says to give yourself permission to be human. You have good and bad days too. If you need to shorten, or even skip a visit from time to time to replenish yourself – that's OK. You can alert a staff member or a friend and see if they can possibly arrange a visitor in your absence. It's important to take care of yourself while caring for a loved one. For more information on preventing caregiver burnout, you can find resources, episodes, and more on our website and you can watch our playlist on caregiver support on our official YouTube Channel.   According to the Alzheimer's Society, people with memory problems have suggested some of the following aids to help someone with dementia or other memory-related problems remember things. You might think of them as different tools for tackling different problems. You may have already used some of them.   Look for aids that fit with the skills you already have. For example, if you have never used a reminder function on your mobile phone, you may find it difficult to start using it now. Whatever aids you use, people around you can support you to use them.   A calendar or daily agenda can help your loved one know what to expect for the day. If you are on their calendar and they are expecting you to come for a visit, they may be more inclined to remember you. Similarly, sticky notes can help your loved one know to expect you for a visit. The bright, eye-catching color may stick out better than a calendar, too.   If your loved one is used to using technology, using a phone, tablet, or computer can also help them recall memories and people. They can browse Facebook and look at photos and names as a name and face recall exercise. Video calls can also help your loved one feel comfortable visiting with someone they may not recognize. Video calls usually have a person's name on the screen, along with their face. Having a name on the screen can be helpful to your loved one when they are having trouble recognizing people.   We've discussed several methods of prompting a loved one's memory, now let's move on to finding other ways to connect with someone with dementia when they do not recognize you.     Dementia UK says it can be very difficult when someone with dementia stops recognizing you. But there are things you can do to keep your connection with the person, and your relationship with them, warm and open.   If you can, try ‘entering into their world', and asking the person diagnosed with dementia about the memories they mention. Encouraging them to talk about what feels familiar will help them to feel at ease. Try not to remind the person with dementia of more recent realities that they're having trouble grasping, such as the death of their parents, as this can cause distress and confusion. Instead, talk about happy memories and events that are important to them.   Taking part in activities together can be a good way to reconnect with a person with dementia. Anything you both enjoy can help you feel closer, such as playing familiar music, watching a favorite film, drawing pictures, going for a walk and talking about the things you see on the way, gardening or arranging flowers, or even doing a jigsaw puzzle if your loved one is able.   According to Next Avenue, remembering the past is often a soothing and affirming activity. Many people with dementia may not remember what happened 45 minutes ago, but they can clearly recall their lives 45 years earlier. Therefore, avoid asking questions that rely on short-term memory, like asking the person what they had for lunch. Instead, try asking general questions about the person's distant past — this information is more likely to be retained.   You can also connect with your loved one through humor. Next Avenue also says that you should use humor whenever possible, though not at the person's expense. People with dementia tend to retain their social skills and are usually delighted to laugh along with you. Laughing with them during your visit can help improve their mood throughout the rest of the day, too.   As dementia progresses, memory loss will no doubt change the connection that you have with a parent – but that doesn't mean you still can't have a meaningful connection with your senior loved one.   Learn more about how to build a meaningful connection with a loved one who has dementia and how to maintain that connection throughout the progression of the disease.   Nancy Kriesmen shared a wonderful story about connecting with her mom during the late stages of Alzheimer's in an article for Alzheimer's.net.  About a year before Nancy Kriseman's mother Doris died, the two sat outside in the garden at her mom's skilled nursing residence. By that time, Alzheimer's disease had diminished most of Doris' cognitive abilities, along with skills such as mobility and speech. Their time together wasn't without meaning, though.   Doris, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's at age 71, had always loved going for walks. Years earlier, the daughter and mother often strolled to a nearby pond, where they enjoyed sighting butterflies alighting on flowers and dragonflies hovering above the water. Sometimes, the women enjoyed picnics at local parks.   By now, Doris could no longer pack a picnic lunch, but her love of fresh air and greenery remained intact. Kriseman would have loved to engage with her mom as she once did, laughing and talking, even dancing with her to Judy Garland and Tony Bennett songs. Instead, that day, she and her mom ate outdoors from a picnic basket that Kriseman brought along. Kriseman still sang to her mom and reminisced about those singers with Doris, who could still respond by listening.   Nancy Kriseman, a geriatric clinical social worker and owner of Geriatric Consulting Services in Atlanta, Georgia, and author of “Meaningful Connections: Positive Ways to Be Together When a Loved One Has Dementia” offers a few ways to build a meaningful connection with a loved one with dementia.   First, she says to ask another person to join you. Invite a family member or another resident to visit with you and your loved one. This takes the focus off just the two of you. It can also foster new relationships. Next, Kriseman suggests that you keep crafts age-appropriate. Although your senior loved one's cognitive abilities are impaired, he or she is still an adult. Avoid things like children's coloring books, opting for adult coloring books instead.   You should also notice how your mood impacts your visits with your loved one. Avoid visiting when you're ambivalent, irritable, or tired of being there. Like we have talked about earlier in the episode, Kriseman also suggests that you tap into different senses. Stimulating hearing, sight, smell, taste, and touch can lift your parent or senior loved one's spirit and reinforce the connection.   Finally, you should visit when your loved one is at their best. If they are in an assisted living facility or skilled nursing community, ask staff to recommend the best time to visit.     Now that we've covered a few ways you can connect with your loved one when they don't recognize who you are, let's move on to the part of today's episode, which is methods for communicating with someone with dementia.     We have done several episodes on communicating with a loved one with Alzheimer's and other dementias, so we won't be talking about this in length, but it is still important to discuss. And as always, if you are interested in learning more about communicating with a loved one with dementia, please visit our website for more information.     Dementia UK has a few suggestions for effective communication with a loved one with dementia. They suggest that you keep yourself in your loved one's eye line and try not to suddenly appear from the side or from behind. Speak clearly to them and use short sentences. Make sure that you give them time to respond, too. It may take them longer to figure out a response, even to a simple question like it's a nice day out, isn't it?     If your loved one is struggling to recognize you, introduce yourself and tell them about the connection between you, for instance: “Hello mom, it's Julie and I have little Danny, your grandson with me.” If your loved one doesn't recognize you after this, don't try to repeat your relationship as it can upset your loved one. If your loved one regularly doesn't recognize you, don't ask them “do you know who I am?” Introduce yourself by your name and leave out your relationship.     While talking to them, be reassuring. Look your loved one in the eye and smile. Being reassuring may not always prevent your loved one from becoming agitated or upset. If your loved one is getting agitated, take yourself to another room for a few minutes before coming back in, calmly, and saying something like: “Hello, I'm back now, how lovely to see you.”     Lastly, Dementia UK says to not try not to correct your loved one if they get your name wrong or say something that isn't true; this can lead to distress and frustration on all sides. Try to imagine how the person with dementia is feeling. They are stressed out, confused, and possibly frightened. Reassure your loved one that you are here to support them and enjoy the time you get to spend with your loved one. And know that even if they don't remember you they will still remember the sentiments they felt while you were around.     We want to say thank you for joining us here at All Home Care Matters, All Home Care Matters is here for you and to help families as they navigate these long-term care issues.

An ever-increasing number of young adults are living in debt, with minimal financial knowledge and without the skills to build long-term wealth. My guest on the podcast today wants to empower parents to teach their kids how to form life changing money habits. Through his work and new book, Will Rainey is teaching kids the basics of all money related topics that they will need to be financially secure when they become adults. Will is a qualified actuary and award-winning investment consultant. His new book is called Grandpa's Fortune Fables. He's the father to two young daughters, and has always tried to make sure they feel comfortable talking about money. In our conversation today, we chat about forming money habits at an early age, why debt is like invisible slime, and how not talking about money in front of our kids is the same as telling them money is bad. Here's my conversation with Will Rainey, author of Grandpa's Fortune Fables, in episode 567 of Informed Choice Radio.

"You don't want to be with me,” Kris replied, her voice gravely and low. Laurie realized that there was still laughter— a different, high-pitched laughter, at the same time as Kris was speaking. “You want to be with them. You hate me.”“I don't hate you,” she begged, trying not to let her legs give out. She felt like the dolls were closing in on her, could even feel the brush of cloth against her ankles, like they were beginning to surround her. She was about to become hysterical."Dan brings it this week with two incredible stories! The first story is a tale of a couple who decide that, due to the pandemic, they are going to move out of their busy city and out to the mountains of Montana. It all sounds so sweet, almost dream like! The dream of making an old house their new home quickly goes sideways when a room of dolls is discovered. From the moment the dolls are found, everything changes. A possession in the Philippines is Dan's second story. It's a sad story, the story of a young girl living a hard life. Her hard life grows harder when she is incarcerated and then possessed. The ending of this story though, is a real head scratcher. Lynze admits that this weeks stories are a bit less spoopy than usual, she's starting to crack up a little bit. Her first story will take us to the World's Fair in St. Louis in 1904 where an abandoned baby goes on to lead a very interesting life and is possibly still quite interesting in death. Then, a chance encounter with the beast of Bray Rd. Two friends set out to cruise around and enjoy a few beers. When one of them needs to answer natures call, a horrific scene unfolds. Then, to end the show, a protective Grandpa makes a return visit to make sure his granddaughter remains safe. New Merch: Something special in the Bad Magic Merch store this week, an Annabelle exclusive collection.

Bible Reading: Proverbs 3:5-6"I'll pick you up after school and take you to see Grandpa at the hospital," Mom told Jaxon and Elexa as they put on their coats.Jaxon tried to swallow the lump in his throat. "Isis he going to die?"Mom took a deep breath. "I don't know, Jaxon. But whatever happens, Grandpa is in God's hands, and Jesus will take care of him.""But how can taking care of Grandpa mean letting him die?" asked Elexa."I know it's hard to understand, but that's because we're looking at it from our point of view," said Mom. "Jesus may choose to take Grandpa to be with Him in heaven, and even if we don't understand why He'd take Grandpa away from us, we can be thankful that Grandpa knows Jesus and would be so happy to see Him." The kids nodded, but neither was entirely convinced.On the way to school, Elexa handed Jaxon some money. "Will you keep this for me, Jaxon? I want to buy Grandpa a "Get well soon" balloon before we go to the hospital, but I don't have a good place to keep my money.""Okay," Jaxon said, and he stuffed the money into his pocket.After school, the kids climbed into Mom's car. "Is Grandpa any better?" Jaxon asked.Mom shook her head. "He's about the same.""Where's my money, Jaxon?" Elexa held out her hand as Mom parked in front of the store. Jaxon pulled the money out of his pocket and gave it to her. She smiled. "My friend Nicole brought money to school this morning, but this afternoon she couldn't find it. She thinks she lost it on the playground. Thanks for taking care of my money for me." As Elexa paid for her balloon, Mom turned to Jaxon. "You were able to take care of Elexa's money better than she was. Just like Elexa trusted you, we can trust Jesus. Even if things don't turn out the way we'd like, we know Grandpa is in God's care because he belongs to Jesus--and He'll take care of us too." Elexa came up to them and handed Jaxon a quarter. "Can you keep this for me, Jaxon? I might lose it." Jaxon nodded and placed the quarter in his pocket where it would be kept safe.-Barbara J. WestbergHow About You?Who do you trust? Do you trust parents and grandparents to take care of you? Do you trust brothers or sisters with things that belong to you? How about Jesus? If you've trusted Him to save you and give you eternal life, you can trust Him with everything. He promises to take care of you, even when He allows things to happen that you don't understand. The safest place to be--both for you and those you love--is in His care.Today's Key Verse:I know the one in whom I trust, and I am sure that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until the day of his return.

As you can imagine, that makes this one a little different than the typical second film. We've still got Leatherface and the rest of his cannibalistic family (even Grandpa!), but now they're terrorizing all of Texas and turning people into chilli. We'll discuss whether this is a bad spoof or too good of a spoof, and talk about the importance of a cool nickname (something everyone in this film has). We'll also talk about email logins, chilli cookoffs, purse trash, and dorito meat.

“I think because of the way I started running, with my Grandpa, it wasn't about performance, it was about time with him…running was this whole thing built around friendships...I think I've always been able to go back to that place, that's what gotten me through some of those rough points.” Kara Goucher is a two-time Olympian and is known as one of the most decorated athletes in American distance running history. She currently works as an Athlete Advisor at Oiselle and is part of Team Altra. Kara was a three-time NCAA Champion and a seven-time All-American during her time as a University of Colorado Buff. Prior to representing the United States at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games in the 5k/10k and the 2012 London Games in the marathon, she was a 10,000m Silver Medalist at the 2007 World Championships. Outside of competition, Kara is known for her strong voice and advocacy. She was an early whistleblower on doping violations within the Oregon Project (her former team/training program) which led to the coach's ban from the sport and public conversations around clean sport within the running community. Kara is now one of the hosts and creators of the Clean Sport Collective Podcast.

Bible Reading: Hebrews 11:1-6Abel and Maggie were enjoying a weekend at their grandparents' cabin. While Grandma went to make hot chocolate, the twins sat with Grandpa in front of the fire and popped popcorn in an old-fashioned, long-handled basket."In our class at church today, Peter said his dad doesn't believe you need to have faith in Jesus to be saved and go to heaven. Peter told us his dad says there's no point in having faith in anything.""And what did your teacher say?" Grandpa asked."Miss Wilson said almost everything we do takes faith," Maggie replied. "She told us if we can have faith in people and things, we certainly can have faith in Jesus."Abel frowned. "I don't know what she means--I'm not even quite sure what faith is. But Miss Wilson didn't have time to explain before the class ended." Abel took the popcorn popper and shook it over the hot coals."Why are you holding that over the fire?" asked Grandpa. "And why shake it?"Abel looked at him in surprise. "It has to get good and hot to make the kernels pop," he said, sitting down on a stool. "I shake it to keep the kernels from staying in one spot and burning.""Why are you sitting on that stool?" asked Grandpa. "Aren't you afraid it will collapse?""Grandpa!" said Abel. "Of course not!""So, you have faith that the heat will change the kernels," said Grandpa. "You have faith that shaking them will keep them from burning. And you have faith that the stool will hold you. I'm sure you can think of other things you have faith in too."Maggie laughed at the astonished expression on her brother's face. "Yeah, Abel. I guess you agree with Miss Wilson after all."Abel laughed too. "I guess I do."Grandpa nodded. "Very simply, faith is just believing. Faith in Jesus is believing that what He says is true--even though we may not understand it. It's trusting Him to do what He says He'll do--forgive our sins and give us eternal life." Abel looked at the popped corn. "If we can have faith in heat and stools, we can definitely have faith in Jesus!" -Geri WalcottHow About You?Do you have faith? If you ride in a bus, a plane, or a car, it takes faith--a belief that those things will get you where you want to go. Riding in vehicles takes faith in people too--like pilots, drivers, and mechanics. Since you have faith in things and people, you surely can have faith in God. People can make errors, but not God. Believe what He says in the Bible--that you need Jesus to save you from sin. Then trust Him to do it. Today's Key Verse:Without faith it is impossible to please God, since the one who draws near to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. (CSB) (Hebrews 11:6)Today's Key Thought:Have faith in Jesus
