This is open to debate, but here’s what I found:
Mon – and especially Dad – would get these dementia-based fixations about something. It could be anything, from going somewhere to doing something he won’t realistically be able to pull off or is even advisable. Like taking a walk downtown when he’s bedridden or investing in hairless chinchillas, for example.
So the powerful words?
Works (almost) every time.
What are some other “magic words” that help you in your caregiving experience? Please share.
