30 Essential Tips to Start Managing Your Parent, Their Alzheimer’s or Other Dementia & Yourself, An Elder Care Survival Guide by Charlotte Keys is for those readers who wish to:

Tip 2. Learn About Alzheimer's and Other Dementia. It’s scary. These days Alzheimer’s is in the news, but I’m here to ask you NOT TO ASSUME that everything you see, every memory slip or glitch is Alzheimer’s or Dementia. See a doctor.

Tip 5. Make Sure Your Parent Has The Technology to Help Himself. . Whether gardening in the back yard, out with friends or with you, he or she should always have a phone available.

Tip 15. When It’s Time, Don’t Be Afraid to Take Your Parent’s Car Keys.. This tip is about caution, about protection, about making sure your parent, your loved one, has the skills and ability needed to operate a vehicle. So don't work to take away your parent's independence, work to insure his or her safety while continuing to drive and protect him or her when it's time to stop driving.

Tip 14. Setup a Power of Attorney to Ensure Your Parent's Future Medical (Health care) and Financial Well-Being . and Tip 24. Make Sure Your Parent Has a Will.. No matter how much or how little money your parent has, make sure he or she has these documents. When he or she can't, someone else needs to make the important decisions about money and medical care. h2>

Tip 13. Get Insurance for Your Parent to Help Him Protect His Family and to Provide Funds to Help Him Pay Off Final Expenses.. If your parent does not have life insurance, buy some or start socking away the equivalent of an insurance premium each month. Either way, make a plan to cover final expenses, including money to pay for funeral services, etc., upfront.

Tip 28. Take Care of Yourself and Your Life. . Remember, you need to take care of the person who takes care of your parent. That’s you. You’re the bottom of the pyramid. If you go, so does everything and everyone else. You must maintain your own life and health.

Right in the middle of my full-time job, my work to take home, my siblings needing support, my car needing to be replaced, my mother’s life changed. She began having symptoms of multi-infarct dementia and I began having symptoms of stress, overwork, and frustration. The question was always, How do I do this and not drive my mother or myself crazy? Both of our roles ended with her passing, but my frustration over the lack of guidance and support continued.This is a daughter’s eye view. I hope you find this book useful.  Read More
