New Dimensions in Dementia Care
Common Myths About Dementia
There are many myths surrounding dementia that can obscure our understanding of the issues facing our loved ones who suffer from one or more of the 70+ causes of dementia, such as the leading cause - Alzheimer’s Disease. Tune in to discover just what is true and what is not!
And our guest will be talking about the importance of changing the dementia care culture of trying to traverse your dementia care journey and learning to the importance of "building a team of care champions" and the essential reality of reaching out for help, support and encouragement- all focused on the approximately 16 million caregivers-family members and professionals who are caring for a loved one, client or resident with any cause of dementia.
Denial About Dementia is a Common Occurance
From time to time, we're all in denial about various aspects of our life. It's how we cope — denial masks emotions of grief, loss, fear and uncertainty.
What causes denial? Many things: lack of communication, distance, self-preservation, fear of the unknown and uncertainty about the future. Denial, however, leads to the continuation of a downward spiral and makes the diagnosis of dementia even more traumatic and difficult to face.
At first, denial at it's best can be a healthy defense against admitting that your loved one has dementia.
Denial involves not acknowledging what you see or hear and/or unconsciously negating what you see or hear. Denial helps you block the more painful aspects of reality. However, if denial continues too long, then it can be life-threatening to you and your loved one.
Denial about dementia at it's worst can mean the withholding of essential treatment or development of a helpful care plan going forward.
When family caregivers are unrealistic about their loved one with dementia's level of functioning and care needs, they put their loved ones at risk.
"When my dad developed dementia, my mom tried to deny it and I tried to fix it. We both failed"
We see things changing and notice the person losing the ability to do what they once could. Often we're reluctant to step in and take over as it may feel like we're giving up on the person or crushing their independence.
Today we will be talking about how to maintain a realistic outlook on your loved one’s care, and thoughts on helping your other family members do the same. Tune in and listen to our guest this show, Theresa Haleen, Business Development Representative for Interim Healthcare and owner of Assisted Living Options for Seniors share her perspective on denial.
It has been said that life is a journey. If this is an apt metaphor, then dementia and Alzheimer’s comprise a divergent road with twists and turns that make navigation incredibly difficult. The signposts are unclear and the markers confusing. We may take a certain path and think it is the right one, only to find that the path has changed.
Laura Wayman, the Dementia Whisperer is a guide to help you navigate this divergent road. Based in California, Laura is a gerontologist, trainer, advocate for, and best-selling author on dementia disorders and care protocols. Her methods are unique, compelling, and highly successful.
Tune in to find out everything you wanted to know about dementia-but were afraid to ask.
Male Military Spouses. We know how we feel when we join in with the unit family readiness meetings - alone, odd, left-out. But are we the only ones? Is our "uniqueness" truly ours? Join host Dave Etter as we discuss this very perception. Call (516) 453-9167 live and join in!
MMSRS is a weekly 2-hour web-based call-in radio show (516-453-9167), hosted by Dave Etter, focusing on the needs of men married to serving military members, both men and women. Male Military Spouses are a small niche of military spouses, comprising of only 7%-8% of all military spouses. We feel left out, usually, at support functions - especially those designed with the spouses being identified as "wives"! We get cajoled at playgrounds where our kids play, from the mommies there who think we don't belong. We are proud SAHDs, who gave up our careers to follow our spouses as they dedicate thier lives to defend our country! Here, on this show, we come together and share beer recipes, diaper changing techniques, financial discoveries - manly things, for men! Typically airs Fridays at 9am CT, rated R for the cussing that can occur, and always available for download (podcast) immediately following each show.

Host Cyrus Webb welcomes author Toby Haberkorn to #ConversationsLIVE to discuss her new book dealing with Dementia called WHEN MY GRAMMY FORGETS, I REMEMBER.
"Wornell, a geriatric neuropsychiatrist who has treated over 20,000 elders in the past ten years, estimates that 75 percent of people with dementia and their care partners are affected by challenges related to sexual needs and behavior. Problems range from loss of intimacy and emotional connection to hyper-sexuality and inappropriate behaviors. Care partners often hesitate to share their concerns with their loved one’s doctor or with a caregiver support group. Family members caring for a person with dementia at home often put up with disturbing behavior for a long time because they don’t know that anything can be done about it. By sharing the personal stories of real families, Wornell shows how a wide range of challenging behaviors can be addressed successfully.
As Wornell points out, popular books about dementia usually “leap past” the sensitive subject of sexuality “as though it doesn’t exist.” Rarely is sex acknowledged as a natural part of a person’s sense of self, or is physical intimacy discussed as a way for a person with early-stage dementia to stay connected to a partner. As Wornell writes, “with all that these patients have lost, or will lose, isn’t it cruel to ignore their desire, as well as their partner’s needs, for connection and closeness?”
