Alzheimer's Caregiving Five Days a Week

Wouldn't be nice if you woke up on Saturday morning and realized you have the next two days off. No worries, no Alzheimer's problems. Two consecutive days to do as you please.

Imaging the work week being shortened to 120 hours from 168 hours. 48 hours of rest.

Do you think you would be more effective Monday through Friday.

Imagine, two glorious days where you didn't have to worry about Alzheimer's patient - caregiver separation. No worries. You'll come back on Monday and everything will be just the way it was on Friday.

Imagine, your Alzheimer's sufferer so happy to see you that they are almost delirious with happiness. So happy to see you that they are more cooperative the next five days than you could have ever imagined. They actually start to say Yes once in a while, instead of No all the time.

They don't ask, WHERE WERE YOU?, they say, I am so happy to see that you are back. I missed you.
