Dementia caregiving doesn’t need to be this hard

After working with thousands of people with dementia and their families, I’ve seen just how challenging it can be for families coping with a dementia diagnosis. Your life changes when you find out someone you love has dementia, and suddenly you’re drowning. How to help the person you love? How to help yourself as their caregiver? Increasing responsibilities. Family drama. Stress. Ever-changing functional abilities. I’ve seen it and I understand it. The struggle is real.

But it’s not insurmountable. The reason you struggle with your caregiving isn’t because you aren’t good enough or willing enough or even capable enough. It’s not because you’re not enough. It’s simply because you haven’t been given practical solutions to your problems, the proven strategies to overcome each of your challenges and thrive as an extraordinary family caregiver.

It Doesn't Have to be This Hard

Every change I’ve experienced as a family caregiver felt bigger than what I could bear when I first started coping with it. From the day I first was thrown into the crisis to the day I finally had a diagnosis, I never anticipated how the constant change would make me feel and I always felt overwhelmed. Always a step behind.

Despite my professional experience as a dementia specialist, I quickly hit a wall. My breakthrough came when I took my professional skills and applied them to my personal life. Once I learned that I have to use my skills in a different way, my overwhelm decreased, my parents thrived and my life improved.

This story came full circle in 2022 when I took the plunge and began my dementia coaching and consulting business. I mixed the tools and frameworks from 30+ years of being an occupational therapist with the wisdom from the past 5 years of being a family caregiver and now I help other family caregivers have a less stressful caregiving journey. They don’t do it on their own, and neither should you.

Imagine for a Moment...

Lizette has a gift for working with and teaching people about dementia.

Lizette’s personal experiences, her heart and her dedication help people like me get through the dementia journey without falling apart. Both my parents have dementia and were diagnosed within 3 months of each other. The only thing I knew when we started was that my Dad’s brain was shrinking and my Mom’s body was becoming atrophied. They couldn’t live on their own anymore. I could not have taken my parents out of an institutional setting to care for them at home without Lizette. She helped prepare me for the emotional loss I am experiencing. Usually, her first question is: “How can I help you?”

The love and caring concern Lizette had for me as well as my mother was evident.

She asked me how I was handling the stress, the sadness, and the responsibilities. I had been a caretaker of both my first husband and my mother, and nobody had ever asked me how I was doing, until she did. God's grace is so evident in Lizette's life, she exudes love, kindness, concern, integrity, and also knowledge and wisdom of this illness. Lizette taught me not to ask questions that would confuse my mother. She helped me understand how to help her with her hallucinations and have kind, caring involvement in "her" world, to give her meals without asking (especially since I knew her likes and dislikes already), to let her dress herself instead of picking out her clothes for her, etc. It really helped me help Mom better.
