“而且,让我们不要疲倦,因为在适当的季节,如果我们不晕倒,我们将收获。”-Galatians 6:9

Growing weary is the easiest thing in the world to do. It is especially easy for people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers. Weariness is arguably the emotion that leads to giving up in the midst of battle, but please don’t drop out. Yes, Alzheimer’s disease is a formidable foe that, at this point in history, always wins, but fighting through the daily skirmishes will help you to live your best life with dementia. One day, there will be a cure, but until then, please don’t give in to weariness.

诊断时不要晕倒

If you received a difficult diagnosis regarding yourcognitivehealth, don’t faint. Receiving bad news from a healthcare professional is never good, but remember, the only thing a diagnosis changes is awareness. Awareness is necessary for preparation.

Helpful Steps Following a Dementia Diagnosis

如果没有足够的准备和正确的武器来击败敌人,就不会参加身体战斗。诊断是对抗阿尔茨海默氏病和其他痴呆症的第一步。一旦被诊断出来,就可以做好事 - 也就是说,您可以为认知健康所做的好处。

  • Follow through with all healthcare appointments with primary physicians and specialists, and do what they recommend. Avoid denial.
  • 服药。如果您没有处方药,请找出原因。无法治愈阿尔茨海默氏病,但是medications可用于减慢进展并帮助伴随症状。
  • Investigate local memory clinics andclinical trials这可能有助于避免疾病。

不要晕,照顾者

Maybe there’s someone out there who loves caregiving. I am convinced there’s not, but I’ve been wrong before. However, a good caregiver isn’t necessarily someone who loves the job, but someone who loves the person for whom they provide care. That’s my story, and I am sticking with it.

与护理有关的工作很容易诱使我们晕倒,但是爱一个患有疾病的人刺激了我们。再说一次,有些人出于义务或兑现诺言提供照顾,这也是一个充分的理由。但是,作为一名护理人员,您降落在该位置:“不要晕倒。”

The everyday caregiving tasks are wearisome, and the days are long, but faint not.

  • 相信您的工作并不是徒劳的,因为您在黑暗的日子里帮助亲人。你们俩都踩着模糊的水域,但是“踩踏”是一个手术的词,而您将成为可能。
  • Feeling weary in well-doing? All of us do at some time or another. Don’t go it alone. Ask for help from a trusted friend or loved one, or enlist an agency.痴呆地图is a global resource directory to assist caregivers with locating help in their local communities. The Alzheimer’s Association is another great resource for caregivers.
  • Use technology to your advantage. Caregiving is isolating. Of course, if you can get out and about, you should, but in the meantime, caring for a loved one at home is a bit easier than it was for our mothers and grandmothers. Grocery shop from home and have items delivered to your front door, and order supplies for your loved one online. You can even go to church online these days. Digitally connecting isn’t the same as connecting face to face, but it helps.
  • 要求一个虔诚的朋友成为您的响声板,但也是他们的一个。很容易陷入“祸就是我”模式,但是相互关怀的关系是健康的。
  • 保持自己的健康状况。定期进行检查,包括牙科,并寻求专业的帮助,如果护理人战变得压倒性,您觉得自己无法继续前进。不要混淆从心理健康专业人士那里寻求帮助,因为“从良好的工作中晕倒”。照顾好自己是主要护理人员,这是您正在做的良好工作的一部分。

Finally, hold on to the second part of the Bible verse: “In due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”

您将从播种的好处中获得收获,但是在适当的季节,因此请继续播种。每个季节都为照料者和提供护理的人带来了试验和祝福。不晕!

我正处于轻度认知障碍的初期,并每天都专注于体育锻炼,希望最大程度地减少这种疾病对我的影响。我有美好的日子,我的日子很糟糕。我每周6-7天去健身房进行40分钟的锻炼,并骑自行车去我当地的咖啡店,以最大程度地减少MCI状况的影响。我有一个女儿,她担心我的病情,并在拜访治疗麦克风的专业人士时会陪伴我
