Feeling Like a bad caregiver,son

In your teenage years, you don’t always see eye to eye with your parents about your friends. A lot of the time you end up in a big argument with your parents over your friends, because your parents can see things down the road that you can’t. These arguments are especially harsh, when argument is over a boyfriend, girlfriend relationship.

The Dementia Wall

The dementia wall is a wall that was built by the person who has dementia to help make that person feel safe. Much like the border wall will make the country safer. Dementia isolates the one who has it, so it’s almost like you’re reaching through, over, under, or around what I’m calling a dementia wall when you’re dealing with someone who has dementia. From time to time, it’s hard to get the one who has dementia to cooperate with you. When it’s time for their medication at times, they...


Dementia No Talk

This week’s episode of care giving for dementia is really not about dementia. However, I call it Dementia No Talk because of a couple different reasons. The 1st reason is because the more or the longer this dementia goes, the less talk, we get out of mom. The more jibber her speech becomes. But also because we’ve had a another school shooting here last week and now 17 people no longer have a voice to talk with. This episode is a lot to do with the shooting in schools my opinion on the...

This week’s episode is about being bored even though you’re busy taking care of the one with mental disease. You do get bored even though there are things to do.

Dementia Violence

I named this episode dementia violence because I wanted to put my feelings out about the violence that you may or may not experience with your caregiving of someone with a mental disease. I've heard a couple other caregiving podcasts and one of those podcast was on dementia violence and locking up knives in getting rid of guns and taking things to the extreme. So I thought I would put my opinion out there because what books smarts people tell you is not always what happens in the field....

Proudly Terrorized Part # 3
