Example text

One evening, I was there in her room with our two daughters, Micheline and Jacqueline. Anique’s eyes were closed and she hadn’t shown any evidence that she was aware of us until Jacqueline said to her, “I’m leaving now. ” With her eyes closed, Anique puckered up her lips. Then Micheline and I each asked for a kiss, but for us Anique kept her lips firmly shut. Micheline had helped me get her mother into the nursing home; Jacqueline had been busy at home and hadn’t been involved. — Jim This is a sad memory for Jim because Anique passed away that night and that was his last communication with her.

I built her a high planter that she can putter around in while standing or even sitting in her wheelchair. She can still enjoy growing things and when she can’t figure out how to use the smaller—safer—hand tools, she uses her hands to dig in the dirt. ” She comes back into the house dirty but much more content—and she even has fewer hallucinations. —Howard With a little work, Howard provided his wife with a safe and satisfying way to pursue a beloved activity. Such solutions are also often better than any medication for reducing anxiety; acting-out behaviors; or other LBD symptoms, such as hallucinations.

Give your loved one lots of kudos for making a difficult decision. • Do not leave temptation, such as your keys or tools, around in plain sight. • Offer an alternative activity to fill the vacuum left by the loss. COPING WITH COGNITIVE SYMPTOMS 43 Communication Communication usually involves coordination between several cognitive skills and motor skills. We use hand–eye coordination when we write. We use hearing, symbol recognition, and verbal skills when we talk. Other communication skills are connected to memory, so that as we talk or write we call up just the right word or phrase.
