Sometimes, the medications ARE the problem, not the disease
Is it 'dementia' or is it medications? Some medications, even over-the-counter medications, can affect elders adversely, and sometimes create agitation, confusion and memory loss. What to watch out for?
One of the best caregiving techniques from Teepa Snow- how to help someone with dementia brush their teeth or feed themselves. So simple (once you know it!) and so effective. Teepa is coming to Davis and Santa Rosa in September if you would like to see her in person. www.teepasnow.comhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93ixNssks1c
