Caregivers’ 10 Commandments

When communicating with older seniors and especially people with memory impairments due to Alzheimer’s or other dementia, it’s always good to keep these “Caregivers’ 10 Commandments.”

Always…
AGREE—Never Argue
REDIRECT—Never Reason
DISTRACT—Never Shame
REASSURE—Never Lecture
REMINISCE—Never say, “Remember”
REPEAT—Never say, “I already told you”
SAY, “DO WHAT YOU CAN”—Never say, “You can’t”
ASK—Never Command
ENCOURAGE AND PRAISE—Never Condescend
REINFORCE—Never Force

Spring Greetings from Visiting Angels in New Jersey!

March 20th, 2014 No Comments

Springtime arrives at our New Jersey Home Health Care Offices!

Our New Jersey winter has been brutal in the Lawrenceville and Marlton areas where our offices are located. But we are rejoicing—as is much of the rest of the country—that this is the first day of SPRING! We’re looking forward to flowers, sunshine, and warmer weather that comes with spring.

Do you know an older friend, neighbor, or loved one who has been essentially home-bound all winter? Take advantage of the warmer spring days to accompany them to a park, a stroll in the neighborhood, a farmers market, to an outdoor shopping center, or to another place they’ve been wanting to visit? Enjoy!
