Dementia Management Alternatives

Caring for a loved one with dementia is extremely hard work.  We were pleased to talk with Ellie about alternatives to medications in the management of dementia symptoms. Ellie is a registered nurse and herbalist who worked for 20 years as a hospice nurse.  In the 1990s, she worked with many patients as an herbalist, helping them to discover ways to find comfort. Though she could not offer cures for their life-threatening diseases, she was able to help them extend their lives with a focus on enjoying their time at the end of life.

The Death of a Parent

Advertisements

We met Noelle a few weeks ago when I interviewed her about caring for her mother with hospice support.  Since we last talked to her, her mother died last month after five and a half months in hospice.  Nicole describes those five months as a “slow free fall” and her current state of grief as feeling numb.

The death of a parent is a profound loss; both because of the relationship that came before and despite the relationship that came before. Parental loss in midlife may result in lingering feelings of loneliness, raise memories of former losses, remind us of unresolved conflicts, and make us wonder about life’s purpose. In the death of our parents, we start to realize our mortality and lose our perceived buffer from death.
