  • Residents at a #Norwich care home are learning to combat stress with tai chi sessions. Home manager Julia Chapman-Wright said, ‘It's been quite extraordinary. Really notable improvements in not just our resident's physical health but also real benefits from those living with advanced #dementia – where we have observed them really relaxing and with their anxiety levels reducing.’ http://bit.ly/2X5skTg

  • Is your Mum / Dad / Nan / loved one in hospital? 
Know they’d rather be ANYWHERE else?! Feel powerless to help?
If you have little experience of hospital environments understanding how things are done around here can be daunting.

Even when my Nana was admitted for surgery, as a health professional I felt that I couldn’t do enough to help her, I lost my influence, I was a granddaughter and it’s really hard to know what to do.

So we have written a book, well a guide, to help you. It’s designed for all you wonderful visitors who have the potential to make your loved ones feel special, and so much better during their hospital stay.

Want to know how you can help?

  • I had the opportunity to go back to @sandwichtechnologyschool today and talk, along with one of the local universities, about my career as a nurse ❤️ .
I was lucky to have 11 lovely 6th formers all wanting careers either in nursing or within a health care setting. Best of all this year I had two pupils who said they wanted to either be a support worker or be a carer. Now that’s a big thing to me because I’m really lucky to work alongside some fantastic carers so I was able to inspire those two students as well by telling them about the opportunities that my work place offer for our carers and how well my team have been developing over the past 4 years of working with them.
.
The one thing I hope that everyone took away with them was that it doesn’t matter if you are a carer or a support worker a nurse or Dr. Whether you are an OT or physio or a speech and language therapist, as long as you all work together and value everyone’s input, your patients will be the ones who will benefit both mentally and physically 😊 and that’s the most important thing 💕 teamwork at its best 🌼

  • Smart Care Giving Tips For Your Loved Aged Ones
----
(1) Begin the care giving conversation early: Ideally, you should talk to your loved ones about their care long before they really need it. Find out what they would like to happen if they got sick. Would they want home health care? To move in with you?
----
(2) Look for caregivers guidance. When you become a caregiver, you suddenly have a million questions. How are you supposed to take care of another adult?
--
What should he be eating? Can she still drive? Get some answers. Check into local resources for caregivers.
----
(3) Consider the legal and financial implications. Start thinking about some of the difficult legal and financial issues you may face as a caregiver.
--
(4) Check out local senior care facilities and nursing homes: Even if your loved one is doing fine on her own, it's a good idea to visit local nursing homes and care giving facilities now.
----
CareVille has got you covered. We provide excellent premium  nursing and caregiving services.

  • I’m back! I was lucky enough to spend 3 nights with family in an amazing villa in Ibiza (which already feels like a distant memory), and got back home at 1am this morning. 
With Tommy already fast asleep by then (in my bed) he seemed surprised to see me when he woke up. Pleased, happy, and so excited he spent 10 minutes trying to bite my shoulder 😂

This afternoon it was Jude’s turn to spend some time with me. We took advantage of the sunshine with a long walk along the river, and lots of trampoline time.

It’s been a good day. The type I needed to ease me back in to the demands of parenting my two boys 😁

All parents need a break now and again. When you’re the parent of children with special needs a break can be all the more important, but often even harder to make possible.

This year has been one of the toughest so far when it comes to dealing with challenging behaviour, the isolation, the loneliness, and the range of emotions that all stirs up.

Which is why I’m so grateful to everyone who helped make those few days away possible. 
Sometimes you just need a break from everyday life to recharge your batteries, and approach it fresh once again. To give you the energy, the patience, and the belief that you can make life better.

Here’s hoping that time away has done just that ❤️

    Sometimes you just need a break from everyday life to recharge your batteries, and approach it fresh once again. To give you the energy, the patience, and the belief that you can make life better.

    Here’s hoping that time away has done just that ❤️

  • Another visit. Another year. Together once more but maybe the last, we fear. 
Laws knows it’s ‘mum’ she said her name. But she doesn’t act even a bit the same. 
She is confused but there is recognition. A smile or kiss still not a mission. 
The relationship strained but wasn’t really ever that loving. A mum of 9 I suppose is quite something. 
86 our gran, but still 100% there how strange it must be to see your daughter just stare.
I wrote a similar post summer last year, but this time it’s harder because neither can care. Not granny for mum, she is just too weak and not Laws for her mum she is now so meek.
It’s strange now these two. Because we act as Laws’ ‘mum’. She doesn’t know any different the same as she doesn’t know Flynn’s her grandson.
All relationships blurred and my explanations quite confusing. I suppose the important thing now is to prevent any illusion.
Yes there is love but memories fade. We cling tightly to those we want to take to the grave. We want Laws to return home as long as she can. We want to visit and chat and remember our gran.
It’s difficult and not fun to care for your mum but you do it with love and with all your heart because a mum and her daughter should never be ripped apart 💔💜 #dayinthelifeoflaws #pca #earlyonset #dementia #alzheimers #braindisease #raisingawareness #carers #memories

  • 2/7/19...Laws today. 
It began over 5 years ago. The scattiness and forgetting. The missing road signs and getting confused. The keys in the fridge and pants in the freezer. 
Now it is everything. It’s eating and drinking it’s asking and answering. 
It’s dressing and sitting and everything in between. 
Sometimes I wish I had filmed even MORE to remember how long ago she ‘lost’ this or that, to have more of a comparison to now. 
Alzheimer’s is more than one symptom. It is so different for everyone. 
But ultimately the result is the same. 
Loss. Slow and painful loss of the person you grew up loving and knowing and laughing with. 
The best explanation (& one I use frequently) is ‘stealing’. It steals them. You don’t have a say. You don’t get any offering of medication or treatment or help or care. 
You just wait. As it steals.
