I learned that being creative when careing for a loved one with ALZ was key
My mom had fallen out of bed. Bruised herself well. After the guilt passed, I tried to find a way to keep her in bed and safe. After a day of web searching and phone calls to ALZ. agencies. I became frustrated thinking the only option I had was to sleep with mom so I could keep her safe. God love my Home Instead caregiver. She first asked. Then while I was shopping she went into my moms room took her bed frame apart. My mom now sleeps on her box spring and her mattress. No frame no height. no worries. Now we both sleep.
