Become a More Effective Dementia Caregiver

todayMarch 18, 2023

11 million caregivers are caring for a senior loved one who has dementia in America. Allyson Schrier joins Suzanne to talk about a typical day for a caregiver. While everyone is different, those living at home with a loved one in mid- or late stages of dementia face some consistent themes.

As a caregiver, you have a lot on your mind, and are often exhausted, on edge, not getting much sleep. There’s an unpredictability of what your loved one might want to do or might say. In Allyson’s case, it was a daily challenge to help her husband retain his dignity and accomplish the tasks he needed to do without making him feel like he was being treated as a child — not just being cared for, but being supported. She highly recommends learning how to be a more effective caregiver and provides a number of excellent resources for people to check out.

Allyson co-developed Zinnia TV, a positive, nurturing, inspiring app and a therapeutic caregiving tool for those in similar circumstances. Zinnia TV subscriptions are just $6.99/month, or $69.99/year, with a two-week free trial. Learn more at Zinnia TV.
