Continuation on Combating Short Term Memory Loss.

Write down your observation of the present situation:

Your loved one's ability to function independently, both physically and mentally.

The availability of family and/or friends to form a support network to share the care.
Hold a family conference. At least everyone in the immediate family should be told what's going on.

Keep good records of emergency numbers doctors daily medication, special diets, back-up people and other pertinent information relating to your loved one's care. Update as necessary.

Establish a family regimen. When things are difficult to begin with,keeping a straightforward daily routine can be a stabilizer, especially for people who find change upsetting and confusing.

Personally, I believe in the power of prayer. But, I also believe one cannot let their loved one suffer with out care. I have truly gotten better through daily prayers, bible reading, following a good diet, exercising, helping others, writing, growing plants, cooking, and sharing my pain with others. God is a very present help in times of trouble. We do not have to deny our pain.

Always keep a shoulder to cry on. It is not a sign of weakness. God bless you.
