Alzheimer’s patients can’t make decisions easily, so you must guide them
Alzheimer’s patients can’t make decisions easily, so you must guide them.
It is very common for Alzheimer’s dementia patients to say No. There is a simple solution to this problem – become a guide, and if necessary, lend them your brain.
When a person living with dementia says No, it is not unusual for a caregiver to try to convince them to agree, or say yes. It is not unusual for this to lead to challenging behavior, or a negative episode with the patient. This can lead to a deterioration in the Alzheimer’s caregiver – Alzheimer’s patient relationship.
