In this Lee Memorial Health video shared in 2011, host Amy Oshier talks about ways in which caregivers can help make the day-to-day life of Alzheimer’s patients easier.
Amy talks about how planning a routine which doesn’t require the patient to make many choices can help with frustrations, how the caregiver needs to be flexible and work out compromises with the patient, ensure the patient has a safe living environment, and to ensure that caregivers themselves have a good support network so they don’t burn out.
