Steps To Take When Your Parents Memory Begins To Fade
You may have found your loved one’s memory slipping in regards to their self-care needs. Seeing them forget their daily task can be heartbreaking to watch. But what can you do?
Memory loss is not always a sign of Alzheimer’s. It could be due to anxiety, depression, medication side effects or an unknown medical condition. Make sure to let their doctor know about their memory loss
At The cloudnine Agency, our compassionate caregivers can help your aging parent with their daily self-care task by using some of our memory improving tips.
Today, we would like to share a few of them with you:
- Encourage sleep & exercise
- Sleeping gives the brain a chance to rest and recover
- Exercise helps improve blood flow and increase oxygen levels
- Check with your loved one’s doctor before starting any exercise program
- Eating healthy
- A healthy diet that consist of fruits, vegetables, fats, meats and protein give the body much needed nutrients that improve brain function
