Alzheimer's Life

Men sometimes find it more difficult to care for their mother once they take on the tasks of an Alzheimer's caregiver.

For example, there comes a time for most of us when you will be required to give your mother a shower or a bath.

Some men cringe at the idea of giving their mother a shower, father also I would suppose..

I did not because I had the new, wonderful perspective that comes when you first enter Alzheimer's World. I wrote this article,

Dotty As Clean As A Hounds Tooth -- New Milestone for Alzheimer's Caregiving

The article describes the first time I gave my mother a shower, my motivation, and the feeling of accomplishment once I completed my mission.

Men might be wondering if I found this in any way disconcerting. Hmm, maybe the women are also.

Another time when my mother had been sick and mostly bed written I discovered a new problem - my mother had a red sore in her butt from laying around so much.

This filled me with an enormous sense of dread. A bed sore can actually kill you.

At the minimum it can lead to a nasty infection. Infections can lead to loss of memory or worse - death.

Dotty Gets the All Clear Signal and I Surprise Myself by Moving Seamlessly into Alzheimer's World


I wrote light heartedly about our trip to the doctors office, the nurse, the doctor, and the inspection. And, what I learned.

And Now to my Point.

If you continue to operate in the old ways you will likely complain and find many of the tasks that are required of a person caring for a person living with dementia difficult.

On the other hand, if you are willing to change and operate in Alzheimer's World, you will find many of the tasks easier to perform; and eventually, you will find yourself laughing and smiling at the same exact things you use to complain about to anyone that would listen.

Once you make it to Alzheimer's World, you will be operating at a very high station in life.

You will start to experience feelings of accomplishment as you perform the necessary tasks at hand. These feelings will eventually lead to feelings of Joy.

In Alzheimer's World you will unleash your spirit.

Most importanty, you will be living your life.

You will come alive. Your life will have purpose and meaning.

Isn't this what you always wanted in your life?
