We were on a call last week with Alzheimer’s caregivers and people with Alzheimer’s talking about ways to make the holidays easier for everybody involved. Here are some of the main points of this conversation:
A couple of us from Best Alzheimer’s Products attended the The 2013 National Adult Day Services Conference in Louisville, KY. I attended Person-Centered Approaches to Challenging Behaviors, given by Beth Meyer-Arnold and Lyn Geboy. Person centered care is something we have always advocated, but I was still able to learn a lot about creating an environment that is truly person centered.
It’s important to share your stories with others because there is something to learn in every story. This story from Holly shows how with just a few words, she was able to calm down her friend and get her back to a happy state of mind.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
- Wow! This is all so new to us. My mother in law came to live with us 3 months ago with stage 3 alzheimers. I am the major caregiver, bathing, feeding, meals, laundry, meds, activities but my husband is getting better at helping. I found your site when a friend suggested “toys for Alzheimer’s” and will definitely be coming back for more. Thank you for all the links and great products too. Paula
