Memory Loss: Take Your Oxygen First
I think that one of the first signs of aging we notice in ourselves and our parents/grandparents is memory loss. Little fleeting moments when information escapes us. For some, this memory loss evolves into something more serious. Caring for such an individual can cause depression, anxiety, anger, physical exhaustion, etc.
Take Your Oxygen First: Protecting Your Health and Happiness While Caring for a Loved One with Memory Loss by Leeza Gibbons reminds caregivers to take care of themselves:
Designed for those giving care to individuals with Alzheimer's disease and other memory loss disorders, this informative and inspiring guide explores how to take care of oneself in order to meet the challenges of giving care to another. Heartfelt, candid accounts by television host Leeza Gibbons and the members of her family--who cared for Leeza's mother, Jean, for more than a decade after her Alzheimer's diagnosis--are combined with current medical, nutritional, psychological, and spiritual information and advice for caregivers. A comprehensive resources section and photo scrapbook of Leeza and her family are also included.
I can't imagine the difficulties caregivers face. I've seen how it has affected friends, and this book could help focus some of the energy back on taking care of yourself.
