DEMENTIA HELP CENTER w/ Kae Hammond re:
– HER ISSUE TODAY: What to do when you’ve gone thru all the tests and you’re going to the doctor for a diagnosis, the doctor says that there’s not much to do about it. NONSENSE.
– REPORT that you need a doctor who will “dig” into the underlying issues.  Over 100 types of dementia.  Alzheimer’s is the most prevalent.  YOU NEED TO KNOW WHAT TYPE OF DEMEMTIA your loved one has. i.e. SCANS of the brain.  You can be on the margin of something that is not diagnosed and then you need a neurologist.
– REPORT that EVERY form of dementia has different symptoms AND different life-spans.
– REPORT that is your doctor is hesitant, get a definitive doctor/answer.
– DISCUSSION that DHC WANTS to help and support you.  CALL THEM.
– DISCUSSION of how to handle a situation where people disagree about sending a loved one to a “care facility”. ELIMINATE THE FEAR.  There are usually many more good years there are ahead of someone in a “care facility”.
– REPORT on how DHC investigates all these facilities on a regular basis and narrows your search for you.  WHEN YOU FIND THE FIT, you get to return to being the patient’s “loved one” and now you have to be into “care management” SOYOU ARE STILL INVOLVED.
– REPORT on the bi-monthly “THRIVE” support group for ALL LEVELS.  Wednesdays 10 to 11:30 live in the conference room @ 75270 Hwy., 111, Indian Wells.  R.S.V.P. please. Open to clients, family, care-givers.  Also have a ZOOM meeting.  Call for the link. FREE CONSULTATIONS.
