Communication Frustrations Between An Alzheimers Patient and A Caregiver

Famous quotes containing the words caregiver, patient and/or frustrations:

    By sharing the information and observations with the caregiver, you have a chance to see your child through another pair of eyes. Because she has some distance and objectivity, a caregiver often sees things that a parent’s total involvement with her child doesn’t allow.
    Amy Laura Dombro (20th century)

    While the doctors consult, the patient dies.
    English proverb.

    Gaining a better understanding of how children’s minds work at different ages will allow you to make more sense of their behaviors. With this understanding come decreased stress and increased pleasure from being a parent. It lessens the frustrations that come from expecting things that a child simply cannot do or from incorrectly interpreting a child’s behavior in adult terms.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)
