What About The Person With Dementia

What about the person with Dementia 

How do they feel after having a confirmed diagnosis of Dementia now. Some people write their Dementia personal stories,this is a small part of mine in regards to my mother and how she felt.

Have you read my other posts about my Mother living with the Insidious Disease Alzheimers Dementia 

Dementia tests diagnosisso much information is available for the Carer and Dementia but today I want to tell you how my mother reacted.

 

what about the person with dementia
what about the person with dementia have you given though to how they really feel

My mother was in hospital after a spinal operation and with the anesthetic this had badly affected her memory and mood. This caused wandering and anger the hospital contacted my dad,we brought mum home early.

The hospital were not coping with my mother at all well, For she had Dementia we were told!

  It was now up to dad and me to tell mum the truth that she did indeed have Alzheimers Dementia. It certainly was not pleasant first the shock and then anger, disbelief and the tears. Trying to explain how the fool of a gerontologist many months previous, had misled us all. Continued

In this blog post I explain this gerontologist in more detail

You can live beyond the diagnosis of Dementia

You can live beyond the diagnosis of Dementia Author Kate Swaffer has written this in an amazing book called “What The Hell Happened TO My Brain.”  If you have Dementia this book is for you. If you live with someone with Dementia this book is an amazing insight.

 

What the hell happened to my brain?: Living Beyond DementiaWhat the hell happened to my brain?: Living Beyond Dementia

In her book “What the hell happened to my brain” Author Kate Swaffer wrote. (page 74)  It is clear everyone responds to the diagnosis in their own way, and many find this diagnosis particularly difficult to come to terms with.

Do ask your Specialist as many questions as you can.

 Continued: It was now up to dad and me to tell mum the truth that she did indeed have Alzheimers DementiaI felt there was a way to soften the blow if that’s at all possible I was fortunate working in Aged Care. I had studied many in depth courses on all types of Dementia.

Rather than discuss the negative aspects we discussed the importance of keeping her brain active. Exercise and her daily walking of the family dog, to keep up attending the clubs she belonged too. 

I feel positivity helped ease mums fears.

insidious disease alzheimers dementia
 My Darling Mum

Depression Dementia Patients

At this time, at the beginning as with all Dementia sufferers mum had only early stage dementia symptoms of mild memory loss. Misplacing things and a little forgetfulness however as time progressed and Dementia symptoms increased my mother was increasingly angry. Who wouldn’t be having the Disease of Dementia.

Depression is often another symptom of Dementia, that is very understandable I knew my mother was going through this on top of everything else.

I suffer depression know the symptoms well, but I was never was  prepared for the day when my mother asked of me a request I just could not do for her.

Depression Dementia Patients

I worked in Aged Care and also with people with Dementia, my beloved mum asked me to get her some medication that in her words “so I can do away with myself”. Saddened at moms desperation I explained why I just could not do this.

Sadly at that time mum told me that she would no longer talk and that way when she forgot what she was saying or to who she was talking, no one would know. She would not have to be embarrassed, She did just that right until the day she died.

It was just heartbreaking and still is when I think back.

Continuing Blog Post Capgras Syndrome Dementia Part 2

Capgras Syndrome Dementia Part 2 follows from where I wrote about my mother and our journey with Alzheimers Dementia. Frontal Lobe Dementia then also Capgras Syndrome Dementia.

 You may like to read my previous post on Capgras Syndrome Dementia Capgras Syndrome Dementia 

Imagine believing your husband is not your husband but an Impostor and your home is not your home. You want to find your husband and your home,this happened to my mum who was already suffering Dementia. Could life be any more cruel, this is Capgras Syndrome Symptoms

 

Capgras Syndrome Dementia part 2

Capgras Syndrome Dementia Part 2

I clearly remember more of the issues we battled through with Capgras Delusion Syndrome. Than all the other Dementia behavioral problems throughout the 6 years of mums suffering.

We worked out our own ways to cope during times of dad being the impostor in mums eyes and mind. I can’t say they always worked.

During days at home when dad was not dad I knew we had to try and bring in familiar and long term habits. Habits of dads that had been a part of him throughout their marriage.

Dad was a great whistler always whistling a tune he would walk out the front door and walk around the block slowly. 

Returning home the closer he got he started whistling loudly and entered through their back door calling out to mum that he was home and where was she.

You know this subterfuge nearly always worked and mum would be so happy and ask him where on earth he had been.

CaregiverProducts.com

I can highly recommend anything similar that you can use yourself.Think of very familiar habits that have been a part of your relationship. Whether a daughter,son or partner,leave one way come back another.

Bedtimes could be a most awful time when again Dad was another man,the Impostor.

 I wrote in my last post ” Can you even imagine how a lady born in 1930 was going to cope with a strange man in her bed, not well. In fact sometimes mum said several different men appeared.

My darling Dad set up the spare room, made the bed up and he would wait until after mum was in her nightie and attempt to get in bed.

If he sensed all was not well he would just tell mum that he would go to his own room. If she needed him to yell out sometimes mum would agree and another she would just turn over and go to sleep..

Sad but true and it must have been hard for Dad but he coped admirably.

I have already written on one of the times on a cold blustery night when in mums mind she was not in her own home. I won’t repeat it all here as you can read it in my previous post.

Again we found it better to take mum out for a drive as if looking for her home than to try and reason with her. Return home and make a big thing about having found the right house.

What we see is what we believe and so it is for the sufferer of Capgras Syndrome Dementia

Capgras Syndrome Treatment

One day on a visit to her specialist it was suggested mum try a medication called Risperidone or Risperdal. Found to relieve behavioral symptoms in Dementia and Schizophrenia.

Risperidone was like a miracle for my mum she quickly became the wife and mother we had known.

Risperidone was not covered under our medical aid system at that time it was costing $100 per month, we didn’t care, we would pay any amount.

 18 months free of this horrible Capgras Delusion Syndrome before mum once again started to slip back. We will always give thanks for that wonderful time when mum and dad were even able to go on a holiday together.

You want to find your husband and your home,this happened to my mum who was already suffering Dementia. Could life be any more cruel, this is Capgras Syndrome Symptoms

Insidious Disease Alzheimers Dementia

As a daughter this part of the whole Alzheimers Dementia illness my mum suffered for 6 years was the worst.

The one area of this insidious disease I remember very clearly.

I have written previous blog posts about my Mother on the topic of Alzheimers Dementia.

 My Mother and the Insidious Disease of Alzheimers Dementia

Early Stage Alzheimers Dementia

Do Doctors diagnose Dementia

Capgras Syndrome Dementia

Capgras Syndrome Dementia Symptoms

Mum already diagnosed with Alzheimers Dementia and Frontal Lobe Dementia faced more frightening and upsetting days and nights.

Mum had Capgras Syndrome, Dad more so than me had to learn to cope better because he was the Imposter in my mums eyes. .

Thought to afflict people with Schizophrenia and some types of brain injury I guess the damage to mums brain with the Dementia is what caused this delusion syndrome.

Though that is only my assumption.

 

Capgras Syndrome Video

 

First Incidence of Capgras Delusion Syndrome

The first incidence of Capgras Delusion Syndrome happening for Dad that he became aware of was when coming home with mum after shopping.

 They had gone out shopping for a suit for Dad for my daughters wedding.

Arriving home imagine the shock when mum said to dad “I don’t know if you will get to wear that suit”. Because you aren’t invited to the wedding.

And when dad asked why, he was told because my husband Ron will be taking me.

I don’t have to tell you dads reaction,disbelief of course and trying to reason with mum.

Trying to reason with the person with Capgras Syndrome Dementia is the worst thing you can do because it causes anger and frustration.

CaregiverProducts.com

Seriously what you see is what you believe,the brain tells the person with Capgras Syndrome Symptoms that the person is not who they really are.

That the home they live in is not theirs.

Worse was when this happened in the evenings at bedtime,this person climbing into your bed is not your husband.

 He is a stranger more anger and yelling and tears.

Can you even imagine how a lady born in 1930 was going to cope with a strange man in her bed, not well.

In fact sometimes mum said several different men appeared.

Capgras Syndrome Dementia and Me

I spent many times chatting to mum during these episodes having a cuppa telling her I understood and telling her I would sort it. Our chats did help calm her,bless her.

One of the worst times for me,I remember clearly as if it was yesterday was poor dad phoning me. Physically and mentally exhausted asking me to please come and help.

Mum was adamant that she wanted to go home to her own house,it was a horrible stormy night with sleeting rain and freezing cold.

Capgras Syndrome Dementia and Me
Mum was adamant that she wanted to go home to her own house,it was a horrible stormy night with sleeting rain and freezing cold.

Not a long drive for me only around the corner, I walked in, mum ranting and raving she wanted to go home and dad just shaking his head.

There was no talking mum around so I took the bull by the horns dressed mum as warm as I could. And hustled her out to my car.

I drove around town in the pouring rain up and down streets and NO mum could not recognize her house.

I drove to my daughters with an idea in mind,we all had a cup of tea and then I told mum I was phoning dad. To see if he was home and that he would be worried about her.

I got dad to speak to mum asking her where she was and was she coming home. Oh yes “she was on her way” she said, and off we went.

Back to where it all started. Dad hugging and greeting mum and she was oh so happy to have found her home. Amen

Do Doctors Diagnose Dementia

Alzheimers Dementia

Do Doctors Diagnose Dementia of course yes they do,but sadly in my mothers case NO.

Click here to read My first post My Mother and the Insidious Disease Alzheimers Dementia

My mother knew she was getting very forgetful and finally went to see her Doctor after being unable to remember her address in the bank.

My dad is 86 now and still has a wonderful memory he was with mum at the time this doctors appointment occurred.  I rely often on my dads memory when writing these posts.  I was not with them, I lived and worked an hours drive away.

Generally on your doctors visit you will be asked relevant questions as to why you feel you have memory loss signs and what they are. In fact I suggest you take with you a written list of signs and symptoms.

do doctors diagnose dementia

Do Doctors Diagnose Dementia

Not if it was my mothers doctor who referred mum to a Gerontologist,who I believe was a relation of his. What Do Gerontologists Do a Gerontologist treats conditions in the elderly related to the ageing process.

Mum did have a CT Scan of her brain this scan will detect areas in the brain that have reduced or shrunk . It will also show evidence of mini strokes or bleeds to the brain and rule out Brain Tumours.

Returning to this Gerontologist for results mum was told she did not have Dementia and his main reason for ruling out Alzheimers Dementia “NOW Wait For it” was because he said my mum had been able to “ask if she had Alzheimers”!! 

I remember mum phoning me so happy she did not have Dementia, I remember being very surprised well shocked really.

So how did we find out my mother had early signs Alzheimers Dementia after a Spinal Decompression Operation

Read my post on Early Signs Alzheimers Dementia

Mums Spinal Decompression Operation

My mum needed and wanted a Spinal Decompression Operation I feared it and tried to talk her out of it. At this time I was working in Aged Care and had seen the results of increasing dementia symptoms in patients after operations.

I pleaded with my dad to try and stop this operation but of course because mum had been told that she did not have Dementia. Mum saw no reason to be worried. The operation went ahead and My worst fear was realised

Anaesthetic And Dementia

I must stress here Anaesthesia will not give you Dementia

However recent experiments by Scientists are proving that there is a link between anaesthesia and those who already have Dementia  “quote ScientificAmerican.com  Roni Jacobson October 23rd 2014 Can General Anaesthesia Trigger Dementia” 

  Recent experiments on animals and human cells show that anaesthesia can increase the buildup of the proteins thought to underlie Alzheimer’s disease, especially in high doses

Mothers Memory Loss after Anesthesia

One day after my mothers operation and anaesthesia confusion reigned, getting out of bed,wandering and mum not knowing where she was.

The hospitals answer! to tie my mum into a chair obviously no dementia training there, my  mum went ballistic,angry,shouting.

A phone call to my dad. Please come and calm your wife, it was late evening dad would have had to catch a bus and he was an hour away.

When dad asked what has caused this to happen he was told “well your wife has Dementia” dad was shocked, I was furious.

We took the car and removed mum from the hospital, took her home to receive some loving care.

I am sure and hope that this will never happen to anybody else,please seek a good doctor,if you have to, get a second opinion. Keep notes on questions to ask and DO contact the Alzheimers Association in your state

Early Signs Alzheimers Dementia What To Look For

Early signs Alzheimers Dementia and what to look for while a loved one remains independent and safe in the home.

When we love the person with Dementia and we want to provide quality care. 

early signs alzheimers dementia

This is where I found myself in 2002 when finally after a spinal operation it became very clear that my Darling mum had Dementia. Relieved in one way to finally have an answer, but angry because my mother had been misdiagnosed some years earlier.

Have you read my first post in this series My Mother and The Insidious Disease Alzheimers Dementia  This explains some of my mums early signs.

 

Early Signs Alzheimers Dementia to Look Out For

Keep in mind that at the first and Early Signs of Dementia the person may only be somewhat forgetful. Do not treat them like a child but support them by initially helping to keep the brain active.

The short term memory is that which is affected and this reflects on daily activities that until now have not caused any problems.

Going to work or social events,shopping,washing, cleaning have all been done automatically until the person forgets repeatedly how to do something associated with these tasks.

Can become lost while driving in familiar home territory

Forgets a loved ones name or Birthday an Important Occasion

Forgetting how to play a favourite Sport, perhaps Golf or familiar board games.

May ask you the same question repeatedly

This is not only daunting but very frightening and the person with early Alzheimers Dementia needs constant reassurance. Staying in the home they know and feel safe in is a good step initially.

Alzheimers Dementia

Medications today have been greatly improved and the sooner these medications are administered they will slow down the progression of the disease.  At this time there is no cure BUT Medical Science are working on a cure everyday.

My Mother And The Insidious Disease Alzheimers Dementia

The Insidious Disease Alzheimers Dementia,  It has taken me quite a time to be able to write this story. My story and is often typed through tears.

I found my memories of my journey as a carer of a parent with Dementia and everything that goes with it, has faded somewhat.

My memories of my mother have not nor those of residents I cared for while working in Aged Care.

Insidious disease Alzheimers Dementia
The Insidious Disease of Alzheimers Dementia

 

My mother passed away from a Heart Attack in 2008, 6 years after being diagnosed with Frontal Lobe Temporal Dementia or Picks Disease. Also Alzheimers Dementia, and at a later stage Capgras Delusion Syndrome. These are Mixed Dementia Symptoms.

 

The Insidious Disease Alzheimers Dementia  I wanted to write on what led to my first suspicions of my mothers memory loss.Though in reality the symptoms had been there long before anyone really notices.

There is much to read and many good sites on all the symptoms of every type of Dementia, memory loss is only a part of the Disease of Alzheimers Dementia 

But what kind of things do we look for when we become suspicious that something is not quite right.  

This is what I will write about today.

insidious disease alzheimers dementia
The Insidious Disease Alzheimers Dementia Mum when living in long term care on a special Activities Day

Dementia Mental Decline Deterioration

So Alzheimers Dementia in fact any type of Dementia has so many  and varying symptoms depending on the type and of which stage the person is at. Dementia is a brain disease.

What Does Cognitive Impairment mean

Dementia Disease is severe changes in the brain that change a persons cognitive functions, but what does Cognitive Impairment mean. The things we do every day thinking,working,making decisions, from learning new tasks to cooking a meal at night.

For the person with Dementia these everyday tasks that we take for granted start to decline. Remembering becomes a problem,tasks like shopping,working,perhaps playing golf may seem a struggle.

You may like to read What about the person with Dementia

Click here to read Early Signs Alzheimers Dementia

 Dementia first signs, one of which is the loss of memory that the sufferer is very aware of and frightened.They know something is wrong and do try to cover this up, you have or will also become aware too.

But what do we look for

Dementia Symptoms Early

Are you caring for elderly parents with Dementia

 I can remember clearly when I began noticing something odd during phone calls, when I asked mum certain questions. Mum would not reply but go quiet and then call my dad to answer for her of course dad could always give the answer.

Special dates forgotten such as Birthdays maybe even Wedding Anniversaries something that normally mum had been the one who reminded us all.

Forgetting recent events such as someone who had visited or having already been out shopping

Caring for elderly parents with Dementia
Caring for elderly parents with Dementia

 Forgetting recent events  please remember there is normal short term memory loss that comes about with ageing. Happens to us all. 

Mum was a fantastic cook many of her recipes were in her head,something we all do after using a recipe repeatedly. Suddenly she would ask what she had to do next or be standing looking lost not knowing what to do next.

You may notice at times a stumbling over the words trying to be used in a sentence or the forgetting of your name. Though mum was further into a later stage when this happened to me.

I don’t recall mum saying that she ever got lost while driving but it can happen most often though my dad drove.

I can remember clearly mums increasing frustration another symptom of this disease, anger is also another part 

Other Reasons Of Memory Loss

Again Please Remember Forgetting is normal that comes about with ageing and can come from other causes. The other causes can be medications,illness, even severe stress and Depression,heavy and continued alcohol abuse.

Do talk to your family Doctor

Alzheimer Disease Association

I highly recommend whether you think you may have Alzheimers or are a Caregiver for someone with Dementia do contact your closest Alzheimers Association. I found so much care and support from mine they are a invaluable resource.

Do I have Dementia

Though you may have Dementia like symptoms there is a big possibility that you do not as I wrote earlier. This is why it is important to visit your GP, take a list with your symptoms and what questions you want to ask.

You may like to read Do Doctors Diagnose Dementia

I am not a health care professional and all that is written here is from my own experience and thoughts.

I did work as a Nurse in Aged Care and studied and gained certificates for Alzheimers and other Dementia’s.

Considering Indoor Walking Aids for Stability

Considering Indoor Walking Aids       How safe and stable are you walking within and around your home, you don’t even have to be elderly. You may have an illness that makes you unsteady or a healing broken bone.

Considering indoor walking aids

Considering Indoor Walking Aids for Stability

Give thought to a indoor walking frame, sometimes called a Zimmer frame.

Space may be lacking and obstacles many when walking inside your home  are you considering a walking frame. You want an easy fold-able walking aid that is slim and lightweight and extremely versatile and can be placed out of the way when not in use.

Also if needed a walking frame that can be placed in a car for a medical visit, shopping or visiting friends. If preferred you can purchase a outdoor Rollator Walker, I have written a post on these in Walking Assistance Equipment
I have reviewed walking support aids and read the many reviews from purchasers and can add a few more walker choices with varying costs.
