In our last blog, we discussed a few ways of coping with your Alzheimer’s once you’ve recognized early signs of the diagnosis. In this blog we are going to cover a few things that will make each day that you battle with oncoming Alzheimer’s just a little bit easier.
Develop a daily routine so that you know in advance what tasks you need to accomplish and if there are any circumstances that you need to set up to accomplish those tasks. Creating a routine can also cut down on the time it takes for you to figure out what needs to be done. This also aids in making it easier to remember the important tasks you need to get done.
Set realistic goals for your day, determine what you can, and can’t, accomplish from the get go, that way you don’t over-exert yourself. It is often these types of stress that can trigger your Alzheimer’s. Recognizing what stresses and worries you, and separating them so as not to over do it will keep your days efficient and effective.
