Caregiving Over the Holiday Season

Caregiving during the holidaysThe holiday season can be stressful. Add it to the busy schedule of a family caregiver and it can become overwhelming. It may be unrealistic to try to celebrate traditionally, while at the same time ensure your family member is cared for as needed.

Take time to re-evaluate your expectations for the holiday season and create a more realistic view of how it might unfold. Figure out what you truly have the time and energy to do and what you can delegate. In the Full article are some great ideas to help reduce the stress of the holiday season:

Maturity Matters, Asks The Experts:

Is Delirium Reversible?

Is Delirium  reversableAnswer: This month, for the final segment in this three-part series, I would like to highlight Delirium because it is an illness of particularly high occurrence in the senior population.

As a body ages, its ability to maintain ‘equilibrium’ when under physical or psychological stress can become compromised. Even minor changes that once were easily tolerated, (taking a medication for pain for example, or minor dehydration) may no longer be. A toxicity or an infection develops in the body that may rapidly result a medical emergency. Delirium is so serious because of its rapid onset. Within hours, a senior who is living independently at home with no evidence of illness can become debilitated and disoriented in the extreme. A person experiencing a Delirium may even appear as if they have dementia to those who do not know them.
