dementia caregiver affirmations

Last year, 15.9 million family and friends provided unpaid care to those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. The challenges of this caregiving role are palpable, as close to 60% of Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers rate the emotional stress of caregiving as high or very high.

Considering this is one of the most stressful kinds of caregiving, daily affirmations can be a powerful source of encouragement and provide reassurance.

10 Daily Affirmations For Alzheimer’s and Dementia Caregivers

  1. I am doing the best I can do. I should not fear what tomorrow holds, but take each day as a chance to learn something new and grow my confidence as a caregiver.
  2. When I am frustrated, I will take a few deep breaths and remind myself that patience is a virtue I can and will embrace.
  3. I need to take care of me to be here tomorrow. Is there something I am neglecting to do for my own health and well-being?
  4. Worry is my worst enemy. I am in control of my thoughts and should focus on what I can control, and accept things I can’t change.
  5. If it were me being cared for, I would want my caregiver to (fill in the blank).
  6. The energy I bring to each day has power. It is up to me to make it positive and joyful.
  7. I am thankful for this day and the chance to live, love and provide care to someone who needs me.
  8. Do I need a helping hand today from a friend or family member? Don’t hesitate to call someone.
  9. When it’s time to rest, rest! Sleep is an essential necessity I should never ignore.
  10. I need to give myself credit for what I do every day. It takes a very strong person to do what I do and I should be proud of myself.

Adult diapers and pull-ups at TotalHomeCareSupplies.com

When it comes to adult incontinence, the disposable brief or adult diaper is a common choice among caregivers for many reasons. Adult diapers feature refastenable tape tabs on each side of the waist, similar to an infant diaper that allow for easy removal in a lying down position and a convenient way to check for saturation.

Popular adult diaper brands include:

On the other hand, the adult pull-up or disposable brief is a closer match to the look and feeling of regular underwear and a practical choice for many adults who prefer a slimmer, discreet fit.

Posted by on June 6, 2012 under Caregiver Corner | Be the First to Comment

Family caregivers are a becoming a majority in our society, especially considering the boom in the aging population. Friends in Action of Boise, Idaho posted this  1-minute YouTube video to promote awareness and provide resources for family caregivers.

The Family Caregiving – The Universal Occupation You Tube video highlights these facts about family caregiving:

  • 10,000 people turn 65 every day. Their care will land on family, who as a whole provide 37 billion hours of unpaid care every year
  • This care is in addition to raising children of their own, working full time and running a home
  • Resources are available for family caregivers, who need support and a helping hand

TotalHomeCareSupplies.com knows first hand about the demands of family caregiving. Our customers who manage the home medical supply needs of aging parents tell us it’s very convenient to have home delivery and an online resource to buy home care medical supplies in bulk to save time and money.

That’s right, the lovely and talented Lisa Rinna is wearing the new Depend Silhouette For Women, a super soft underwear-like alternative to the traditional adult diaper. Lisa states, “I am a champion for positive self image for women.”  Her revelation of the fact that she was wearing Depend Silhouette For Women under her evening gown on the red carpet was a realistic looking advertisement, topped with a charitable donation.

Lisa Rinna on Depend Silhouette For Women: "They're so soft!"

Despite the wonderful endorsement for the incontinence community, Lisa Rinna isn’t Depend’s new spokeswoman. The actress told the Huffington Post that Depend products donated $225,000 on her behalf to the charity Dress for Success in exchange for her participation. Rinna stated, “I think it’s something that can help women. If they see me in this product and it somehow makes them feel better about themselves and less ashamed to go out into the world, I say why not.”
 
 
Depend Silhouettes are the perfect choice for those who want the look and feel of real underwear with the best protection from Depend products. Super soft, cloth-like fabric creates a sleek ultra-smooth fit under your clothes and is soft against the skin. The slim side profile provides maximum protection with a discreet fit while the all-around leg elastics protect you from leaks.
