Restored Poetry #archives #elderly #poetry #hospice

Hold me… I am a broken, colorful fragrant remnant of yesterday * Remember me… when I was alive, thriving extracted from a beautiful whole * Understand me… for who I am today a relic, don’t pull me to pieces * Cherish me… for what I was and what will be of a memory Caring forContinue reading “Restored Poetry #archives #elderly #poetry #hospice”

The Pawn #poetry #chess #selfimportance

Low man on the totem pole you only move one space you live in anonymity without even a face * strive against the elements success is but a plan each, every tiny move one square against the man * a lonely and exhausting job this game against the odds work it’s cut out for youContinue reading “The Pawn #poetry #chess #selfimportance”

Zest For Life #elderlyissues #atozchallenge

  A ha so this is the last day of the April A to Z challenge. How was it for you?

eXplanation #elderlyissues #atozchallenge

“Can you tell me?” “What would you like to know?” With Dementia we often will be asked the same questions every shift or 10 times every shift. I find the more confused a client is the more they can loop around a similarity. “When is my friend Felicia coming?” “We called. She’s on her way?”Continue reading “eXplanation #elderlyissues #atozchallenge”

Butterfly Fever #covid19 #children

Bethany has been sick with butterfly fever. No one knows how to take care of this. She does not want me to get it though I don’t think a lion can get a butterfly sickness. She is in a butterfly tree -all alone. At first I was afraid and reminded of how lonely I wasContinue reading “Butterfly Fever #covid19 #children”

Our View #elderlyissues #atozchallenge

As a caregivers we may have clear ideas of what our family member needs. After all in many cases we have known them our entire lives. “My father only likes tuna fish for lunch. It’s all he ever eats.” My client eyes my salad so I give him some tomatoes and carrots. Our view intoContinue reading “Our View #elderlyissues #atozchallenge”

Uncovering Needs #elderlyissues #atozchallenge

I have found that working with the elderly is like digging for treasure – I am never disappointed with what I find. There are times (especially with dementia) that we must uncover their needs or what makes them happy. Every person has things that have meaning. It could be an activity like going to theContinue reading “Uncovering Needs #elderlyissues #atozchallenge”
