DEMENTIA experience - I cared for my mother Sara for much of her later life but especially her last 14 years - 7 years as her live in caregiver. She passed May 2018 at age 95. Her 7yr dementia improved 90% under my care through nutritional - I always took her to her doctor Appt's discussing medical issues and such with them - keeping my mothers doctors up to date on her health issues, various medicines being taken along with host of various vitamins which where included in her medical records - plus with dementia diagnosis in 2013 I learned about caring for dementia symptoms with vitamins - got family involved to help and be involved as much as possible as my mom became bedridden - mom and I did everything together - we watched tv - went for walks/ outings - got her to keep reading - play music - sing to her - got her to sing along - went to movies - the malls - get my moms hair & nails done every 6 wks - learned diaper changing products and procedures and proper cleaning to avoid rashes with the appropriate lotions plus feeding and bathing - it was very important to keep my mother vibrant at all times - I feel I provided comparable level of care compared to typical "professional" care maybe even higher because of 1 to 1 care vs 1 to 12 - While in a SNF Nursing facility she developed bad bed sores. Once at home her bedsores went away. Had no sores during last 3 years. I'm Currently not available Sat or Sun. Thank You. - Frank B.
