Dementia and Alzheimer's Caregiving: Through the Looking Glass

The caregivers/CNA's in Long Term Care facilities do not understand the process of Alzheimer's. This video is very good at explaining the stages. It also explains the behaviors that come with Alzheimer's. Most staff in Long Term Care facilities have told me that they think that the resident with Dementia/Alzheimer's makes up part of what they exhibiting. This video explains so much what I have tried to tell them, but sometime when it comes from others. The quality of this video is very good. Not only is this good for staff, but ALL family member's should also see this video. Family member's still see their mom or dad as an 83 (or whatever age) that they are suppose to be. They do not understand that their loved-one is not the same person that they once knew. They have a problem with altering their approach to meet the current needs and mental age. Political figures / school officials / business communities / and social communities would also
benefit from this video. Police officers NEED to see this. My son is a police officer and they do not know how to respond when they find a person wandering & confused. God Bless the writers of this video.

I just watched the whole preview of the Dementia and Alzheimer's Caregiving: Through the Looking Glass; and was very impressed. The preview was educational and made me look back on people whom I knew suffered from the disease and the lack of understanding on how their care should be administered. I liked the fact that the presenter discussed the topic in stages, showing the normal brain and a brain affected by Alzheimer's (no difference on the outside) but the turmoil on the inside was horrific with a process of reversal taking place).
As a result of watching this preview, we have decided to purchase this CD to include in our training program as an element of our Caring for the Elderly category. This preview has allowed me to realize that it takes a specially trained Caregiver to care for these lovely people whose complete world is in reverse of its norm. That is indeed frightening and we are committed to using our training facility to provide training for the faithful Caregivers of these fragile, frightened and sweet individuals.
Thank you very much indeed for producing such an informative and easy to understand video.
