  1. I’m a caregiver and am as nice and sweet as a butterfly but sometimes I have to tell miss thing, “Don’t raise your voice at me or don’t be mean or let’s not talk until you feel better”. We used to get along so well. Now I’m on eggshells. Nothing I do is right and everything I do is not enough. I understand this is what happens, so I’m just putting my emotions aside and work around her until we part ways.
    Then I’m retiring…
    Crypto and Crafting business is really taking off.🙏🏾🦋⚡️💰🌈☀️

  2. There are times when my grandma will say lots of negative things or acuse me for letting her down. I don't care and never lost my temper and go on with her as usual until I get to trick her to restby giving her a chocolate bar. It is the same as taking care of a baby, but with a downgrading difference, that this baby won't learn anything new but only forget. The main issue for me is that after I'm done with everything and go out I have developed a grumpy atyitude at the others and skip most of the social interactions.

  3. How complicated is your Tinnitus condition, mine was very complicated, terrible and uncomfortable. I used so many meds but nothing happened but instead the pain increases. Just 2 weeks of using Doctor Madida Tinnitus herbal medicine all my disturbing noise and pain stopped, I went to hospital to be very sure that it is gone and my Medical doc confirm it that everything appear goods now and me I don’t longer feels the symptoms of Tinnitus for so many weeks now. Truthfully speaking I am so glad that all this are all gone and over because this tinnitus situation almost ruin my life. .

  4. Women are the superior gender when it comes to dealing with dementia. As a man I'm really jealous. After working a 14 hour day I'm so burnt out I simply can't cope with all the negativity. Truth is dementia doesn't get better 😥😥🤯😩😩

  5. I couldn't get through the first 10 seconds- this is so scripted and not true to reality. Please do not misrepresent such a hard issue.

  7. A previous care giver i had, with some frustration but NO agresion, changed my mom's diapers, for many days. Do you think she can recall thos events and probably be de reason that my mom nowadays goes totally mad when I try to help her or change her? Is that possible for a dementia patient recall those negative situations and not the good ones?

  8. For those of you taking care of your loved ones, hang in there, it’s not easy, I know, I’ve been there. It is stressful but in the end, you will know you did the right thing. You will have no regrets. But when it gets to the point where it’s no longer manageable, get professional help. The last 2 years of my mom’s life, we had to put her in a memory care facility. Very expensive, but worth every penny to be able to release some of that stress. I had no support from my brothers. I had to sell their house and all their belongings and we lived 11 hours away, so it wasn’t easy to say the least. But now she isn’t suffering any longer. God has come to take her. Stay strong!

  9. Best tip from this was the clothing.. simplify wardrobe choise and have easier to put on clothing ..helps so much!

  10. for my confused patients, I have to be simple and straightforward, and everything has to be logical in simple terms. For example, if I have to get a patient up for therapy one day, and if they give issues, being kind and reassuring makes them feel like they can push me around. I have to be kind and straightforward, not nice and willing to get ice cream. Sometimes, I have to be terse, and being a little terse while explaining is what works the best.

  11. My mom is permanently healed from this horrible disease called Alzheimer, and now she is living her best life. Contact Dr. Rohan via dr.rohanronjohn@gmail.com you will come back for your testimony.

  12. I can tell you from 21 yrs of experience that kindness goes a long ways never force anything, only encourage. Patience & passion is the key.

  13. 0:17 "my mom's become resistant to my help."
    Seems like "I'll never do it her way" to the mother.
    The daughter could use assertiveness training. To be assertive instead of aggressive or passive.

  14. I once believed Alzheimer's disease has no cure.. Well, it is true with western medication, but not with herbal medicine. My Dad's experience opened my eyes to the reality of a cure through herbs.. My Father was diagnosed with mild dementia in 2013 but now he's finally free with herbs from Dr. Rohan. You can reach out with the doctor via dr.rohanronjohn@gmail.com

  15. The Forwago personalized program helped me get rid of my anxiety and depression. Just wanted to share it with you guys, even if one person gets better I'm happy.

  16. Recently my father has been showing signs of dementia. I've tried asking him to remember some of his better moments, like specific stories of his life he used to tell me as a kid, and while it seems to help with his memory at the time, he seems depressed afterwards.

    Any idea what's going on?

  17. I have decided to make this post or testimony public. My husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s ten years ago but was healed with BRONGEE HERBAL SUPPLEMENTS. Contact Dr. Rohan today with dr.rohanronjohn@gmail.com, It may also help you too…
