When should mom stop driving? Having mild dementia is no longer a reason to take away an elderly person's car keys, according to newly revised guidelines from the #American #Academy of #Neurology.

Citing new #evidence that 76 percent of drivers with dementia could still pass on-road skills tests, the AAN changed guidelines that previously #discouraged any #driving once someone was diagnosed with mild #dementia or #Alzheimer's. The updated guidelines were unveiled an the AAN's annual meeting in Toronto.#healingtouchcompanion #grandmadaisyisms #dmv #driver #glamma #fun #healmyGrandmaDaisy  @black_eagle_investment_

#Caring For #Complaining or #Bossy Family Member? Always make direct eye contact, unless it is forbidden by cultural boundaries or religions.
Reduce distractions during the conversation. Distractions could be music, people talking, or the TV.
#Listen to them carefully and verify that you understand them. Repeat what they said in the form of a #question or ask them to repeat themselves.  You probably will find it more effective to repeat their exact words than to paraphrase.
Notice non-verbal communication. Watch for clues that may indicate that they are becoming aggressive or upset.
Acknowledge their #feelings. If you are weary of caring for them, they are probably just as weary of needing the care. Just like you need to use good listening skills, it is also beneficial to use good speaking skills when communicating. Here are tips to be more effective when communicating:

Make direct eye contact, unless forbidden by cultural boundaries or religions. This is a valuable tip if you are listening or talking. It shows the senior that you care about the conversation.
Before beginning a conversation get to their eye level. For example, if they are sitting in a chair, sit beside them.
Encourage them to use #glasses, hearing aids, and #communication boards when needed.
Ensure that your non-verbal signals are saying that you are paying attention and are interested in the conversation. Always, maintain an open body posture, and avoid placing your hands on your hips or crossing your arms.
Use words they will understand.
Be honest.
Never make promises that you cannot keep. This will frustrate the senior even more.
Prepare them in advance if you have something else to do on that day and if your time is limited.
Do not argue with them.
Give encouraging feedback when the elder is not complaining or demanding. Care blog team #grandmadaisyisms #healmyGrandmaDaisy #healingtouchcompanion @black_eagle_investment_

How TO DEAL WITH #FALSE DEMENTIA ACCUSATIONS  Why #seniors with dementia make false dementia accusations

Their accusations may sound #crazy, but the situation is very real to your older adult. Their minds are trying to make sense of the world while their #cognitive abilities are declining.

People with dementia often feel #anxiety, frustration, and a sense of loss. Those feelings, plus memory loss and #confusion, can easily lead to paranoia. That’s why many seniors with dementia feel like people are stealing from them or #mistreating them.

When they can’t find something they’ve misplaced, their #brain leads them to believe that someone #stole from them. When you prevent them from wandering and getting lost, they think they’re being kept #prisoner.

These dementia accusations can be extremely #hurtful to hear, but it’s important to remember that they’re not personal attacks against you. Their brain can’t make sense of what’s happening and has created an alternate version of reality to #compensate. #healingtouchcompanion #grandmadaisyisms #healmyGrandmaDaisy

DIS-ease..... Most #diseases that cause dementia are progressive, which means that persons with the disease get worse over time. Unfortunately, no #curative treatment for dementia is currently available. #healingtouchcompanion #grandmadaisyisms #healmyGrandmaDaisy @black_eagle_investment_
