wow - what great suggestions, I just started taking care of my dad, he is no longer able to do things for himself. These ideas help a lot - I am going to print them out for when I am frustrated, which is every day lately. I hate the idea of looking forward to what prob. will happen to me when I get old.

I reread this thread from the beginning. Cat's post from 6-30-08 reminded me of a training session from work to help us with older patients. There were different glasses for us to try that helped us experience vision problems commonly found in older adults. A movie showed us how they may have trouble seeing depths, such a step up, or how dimensions might look flat to them. It was an enlightening session.

Cat, I would love to hear other things here that they talk about in your caregiver group.

Oh, Cat, what a help you've been. Such wonderful simple solutions to problems I have all the time. I never thought of a door alarm, or just moving a new lock out of reach. I've been locking the screen doors, since Mom can't open those locks, but then hubby can't come in. Or I can't just pop in the other door when I'm outside, because it's locked.

Ah, the thunderstorms they've been warning us about are finally here, need to shut off the computer (after you've fried the first one, you learn to UNPLUG!)
