Lisa Skinner conducts an interview with Marianne Sciucco and her experience as a Registered Nurse who has worked in memory care facilities. Marianne is also a co-founder of AlzAuthors.com. The topics covered in the interview include tips
for dealing with Alzheimer’s, the symptoms of Alzheimer’s, and whether Alzheimer’s is a terminal disease.
According to a recent report by Alzheimer’s Disease International, an estimated 50 million people are living with dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are progressive (which means it will get worse
over time) and life-shortening. There will be lots of changes in behavior to adjust to over time and this can be extremely difficult. These feelings can be very strong and can be even harder to cope with than the practical aspects of caring. Try to remember that you are not alone. It’s very important to ask for help if you need it. Support is available. Some people even feel positive emotions at the same time, such as relief. How you feel may change, and you might find yourself more able to deal with feelings from one hour, day or week to the next. For many people grief comes in stages: shock, longing for what has been lost, anger, guilt, and acceptance or finding ways to live with the loss. You might find you go back and forth between some or all of these stages. This is very common and there is no ‘normal’ length of time that grief will last.
