Approaching your loved one with Alzheimer’s should be done with a great deal of caution, caring and compassion.
There is a rule of thumb in caring for people with Alzheimer’s disease: you will never win an argument with someone who has dementia.
Denial is the first line of defense; they will project blame.
Its scary to think that they might be losing their ability to think, communicate and reason. It is embarrassing when they get lost driving to the same grocery store that they have shopped at for many years.
Here are a few suggestions when it comes to caring for a person with Alzheimer’s disease:

Maybe its for breakfast or a snack, blueberry muffins are melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Did you know they are honored each year on July 11th?
While enjoying a delicious blueberry muffin, consider the powerhouse the blueberry is. The only way to enjoy fresh blueberries was to seek them out where they grew naturally.
Today we can enjoy the abundant potassium, vitamin C and B6, and other health benefits of the blueberry much more readily than they did a 120 years ago. We bake them into muffins and eat them by the handfuls.
They’re so likable, blueberries celebrate a popsicle, cheesecake and a popover day, too!
Don’t forget, July is National Blueberry Month.
