Having cared for my husband with Young Onset Alzheimer's Disease, I appreciate how difficult it is at this time for families feeling trapped right now with a loved one who may have raised anxiety and confusion along with possibly extra aggressive moments as their brain neurons are trying to wire signals for day to day living.
As a carer you may well be feeling your own frustration and anxiety as you try to cope each day. - Juggling essential tasks and getting food supplies, loss of the respite times you had with Day Care or Care Home breaks.
We at Carers Coaching Academy want to offer you some help and are offering extra emotional support during "lock down".
*** I have a "hot off the press" Newsletter from a Dr Gemma M.M. Jones, founder of the Alzheimer's Cafe with ideas for daily structure and activities while you are going through the enforced "stay at home". It will help you find creatives ways to structure your days and lessen the agitation and anxiety of your loved one. If you can make their day more calm then hopefully you will be more at peace.
