Bird watching?

Last week we looked at some Ideals magazines & that sparked a conversation on killing chickens & milking cows. There are several farm people in the memory unit.

I was able to find noise makers at Good Will. I took them to the memory unit yesterday. I'm not sure what the real name is maybe tamborines? Several of the ladies enjoyed shaking them & we sang some of the older songs. I will take them back on another day since they liked them.

I am really glad I took Margaret her favorite pie a few weeks ago. She liked raisin pie so I took it for her birthday. Yesterday, her room was empty. Margaret passed away on Saturday night. She was in her 90's.

For those of you caring for a loved one, I know the holidays may be especially difficult. Do the best you can. If possible ask someone to help you so you can enjoy the festivities & don't feel guilty.

I plan to get to the candy store for some chocolate & hope to find some good tangerines. Will take those things to the nursing home & sing with the residents.

My Dad likes it when I trim his fingernails. It takes awhile because his nails are brittle, so I have to cut and file them down slowly. Conversation comes more easily because I'm focused on not accidentally cutting him instead of whether he's really following what I'm saying. He just likes me holding his hands, I think.

I went to visit the residents on Tuesday. Some are not as responsive as they were on my last visit. I know that can change quickly.

I think a visit from a pet sometimes helps to reconnect.

Taking care of a loved one with dementia is a hard job. I wonder how some of our team members are doing. If you are struggling please don't feel guilty for taking care of yourself.

We went to 5 thrift stores today. I got a beautiful book called Sunday in America. It has some beautiful pictures I am hoping the residents will enjoy. I also got 4 puzzles. They were buy one get one free. I found a cookbook called Best of the Bake Off. It has several easy recipes that I may be able to share with the residents. They use crescent rolls or biscuits. Easy but they make the room smell so good.

The last time I visited the STNA said they are not doing many activities with the residents in memory care. I hate to hear that because they need some mental stimulation.

Just having someone to sit with them. Maybe rub their hands. Sing an old song or mention something from the past.

My friends in memory care unit really like the old songs, especially gospel songs. I had a songbook put out by Readers Digest called Inspiration songs. I lost or misplaced it & was really sad to loose it. I went to a book sale at the library & can you believe, I found that book! I was so happy to fill my bag with many books for the residents to enjoy!
