"E"~ "A-Z CHALLENGE"


"E"
is for
about
ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE
{as with any issue, we need all the education we can get 
to be informed and aware as much as possible}


and

EARLY ONSET of ALZHEIMER'S
{but I'm saving this for a later letter}

but also

EARLY DETECTION of ALZHEIMER'S
is
very important and matters


I discovered
in English and Spanish
FREE
but it appears you need to register


is
a Certification Program 
(perhaps you have a call to 'mission' work with people
who need care with dementia or Alzheimer's)


"Being a caregiver doesn't come with an instruction manual, but there are resources available to help. Use the trainings, workshops, books and DVDs on this page to gain caregiving skills and practical advice.


here's another
"E"


really
EssentiAL

Alzheimer's Association have developed pdf documents of statements that represent their position around ethical, medical and care topics related to Alzheimer's disease and dementia based on relevant research, best practice and expert opinions.

after all this organization
is full of
EXPERTS
with
EXPERIENCE
and
EDUCATIONAL
information
and
support

Let's learn all we can from them and each other sharing
together


Some examples of these pdf's




and of course this

"E"

personally tops the list for me

EMOTIONS
with or without
facing
Alzheimer's

"Dealing with Alzheimer's can bring out many strong emotions. As the disease progresses, caregiving issues can often ignite or magnify family conflicts. The strategies given here can help families cope with the situation together."



so this page on


another very helpful page


to guide setting up a personalized action plan



LOTS of 
"E"s

too bad it's all 
not that easy or done with ease

Education about this dreaded disease is so necessary. For education is power. I have found it especially helpful to read material about how it manifests itself in the person with dementia, but also with how it affects the emotions of the caregivers. I have felt better equipped to handle the challenges when I understand them better.

Mission 4 Monday sadly ended last year as a meme, but I continue to share here and I know others also share various MISSIONS, especially the people above. Check them out!!! Encourage and perhaps join us.
Since my life is a MISSION, I share whenever I can. There are many of you, who do community involvement/church events, volunteer opportunities or know missionaries that you could share to motivate others. Motherhood and Homeschooling are MISSIONS and callings!!!
Each of these are MISSIONS and important to encourage others.
If you are doing something or share someone's MISSION on your blog, please leave your info in the comments anytime! Hopefully others will notice & come visit. THANKS!
