Author and Dementia Care expert, Tracey Maxfield, RN, called the show to answer the question MANY families have about an aging loved one:  Do They Have Dementia?

Struggling to Take Your Loved One With Dementia To Church?

February 18, 2018
00:0000:00

"I Still Want To Attend Church, But I'm Caring for Someone With Dementia!"

When caring for someone with dementia, isolation develops as an increasing challenge for family caregivers.  A number of frustrating and embarrassing mishaps can await most caregivers and their loved ones, so the seclusion increases.

Yet, pushing back against that isolation benefits not only the caregiver, but the loved one with dementia as well.  Churches and places of worship provide great comfort, strength, and community to a family living with a member suffering from dementia.  Attending those places for a long as possible helps both the caregiver and the loved one with dementia.

Dementia Care expert, Tracey Maxfield, RN, serves as a regular contributor to the our radio show for caregivers.  She recently provided several tips when taking a loved one with dementia out in public—and specifically to church.

Dementia, Caregivers, and Christmas

December 12, 2017
00:0000:00

Although many families feel stress during Christmas, caregivers of loved ones with dementia often feel increased heartache and tension. Due to that added anxiety many feel, dementia-care specialist Tracey Maxfield called the show to offer much needed help.

On Sunday's show (12/10/201),, Tracey provided a checklist of tips learned from her 35 years as dementia care nurse.

When you're with a person with dementia, everyone keeps thinking,"Oh well, let's do this Christmas—let's do this one the best ever.' But I think what caregivers need to do is really take a step back and look at what the significance of the holiday is for them and for their loved one.

Tracey shared that many caregivers tend to overdo it for Christmas because of fear it may be their last one with their loved ones.  Instead of accepting that undo pressure, Tracey recommended several ideas for a calmer, but more meaningful holiday season.
