Alzheimer's Society Dementia Friends Bookshelf Analogy

Christopher volunteers as a Dementia Champion for the Alzheimer’s Society.

He leads the Dementia Friends session and recently delivered a session at City Hall in London as part of the London Mayor’s drive to make London the most dementia friendly city in the world.

Here I share the Alzheimer’s Society’s bookshelf analogy about dementia.

Marvellous mornings...

CareChooser’s private carers help your elderly parents have marvellous mornings.

Why focus on marvellous mornings?

Because marvellous mornings set up marvellous days & marvellous evenings...

... So a random home carer rushes in and gets ‘em out of bed & runs…

No, no…

Not the care agency thing.

Rushed mornings, set up chaotic and stressed days…

The same private carer will come each morning. (choose early, mid-morning or late morning)

The carer helps your parent get up, takes care to choose what to wear, helps them to wash and brush & style their hair.

They’ll settle them down for breakfast and clear away too. Get them ready and settled to start the day, perhaps a cup of tea together or one carer takes her client for a walk each day, photographing butterflies... & all sorts.

All the other bits & pieces are all taken care off; housekeeping, laundry etc.

No rushing, no stressing.

Same familiar face.

The above is tracked online, you’ll know from wherever you are that ALL is WELL.

We can’t help everyone (We won’t compromise on the quality of our home carers like others do).

We’ll check to see if you’re a good fit to work with us & our carers.

If you’re fed up of manic, chaotic mornings drop me a message.

Let's Defeat Elderly Loneliness

Hi, I'm Christopher the founder of CareChooser. We match carers to clients needing care in their home. I’m also a Dementia Friend and a Dementia Friends Champion. Recently I shared an article from Good Housekeeping magazine on research done by the University of California proving sadly that loneliness plays a large role in the decline of the elderly.

So I thought I'd spend a few minutes thinking about ideas about how to defeat loneliness.

1. Invite some one around for tea or go to theirs…

2. If you fancy volunteering there is a great organisation called Contact the Elderly. You can volunteer to have tea with the elderly. I think I'd be pretty good at that!

3. A smile always always goes a long way and helps to defeat loneliness.

4. Keep in touch via the telephone.

5. Get the person a diary and start to fill in some events or calls on different days.

6. Number 6 is interesting, how about signing up to Borrow My Doggy or in my case, Borrow My Chicken.

If anyone else has any ideas about how we can defeat loneliness, post some ideas below.

All the best, Christopher
