Dementia and Alzheimer’s

  • Are you caring for someone with Dementia?
  • Are you frustrated with everyday challenges that you can’t understand?
  • Would you like to assist with this developing field of assistance for carers and those suffering with Dementia and Alzheimer’s?

I have always wanted to do something to help people who care for those with Dementia and Alzheimer’s. I have never been in this position personally and I am always in awe of those who do this work professionally or even just as relatives.

Many years ago I was talking to someone who trains professional carers and I was inspired to see how my knowledge of NLP and Energetic NLP could help these people. Since then I have been trained as a Dementia Champion, been fascinated by the work of Naomi Feil, shared a hospital room for 2 weeks with a delightful lady with Dementia, who taught me so much, and talked with many relatives.

I have produced some models to help carers better understand the process that patients are going through, which invariably triggers comments like “that makes perfect sense” and “I wish someone had told me this before, it would have saved a lot of heartache.”

I am currently distilling these insights into an e-book, How to reduce the impact of Dementia – insights for carers; living in different time-zones to help anyone in this situation. It is drawn from my personal experience and that of those I have interviewed. I am also drawing in information from other experts in the field, with a common goal to assist those who care for patients and family members. I offer it to you as a model and hope that it will help some of your confusion. I trust it will improve, in some small way, the quality of life for carers and those being cared for.

I know that carers have little time to read so the e-book will we delivered in several short sections:

Part 1: To help you better understand the patient’s experience and simple work around’s to assist your/their everyday life.

Part 2: Tools to help carers maintain their own health, whilst in very challenging situations

Part 3: How some of the tools you have learnt part 2 may be able to help the patients.

Olive Hickmott is a Dementia Champion and also instigated an on-line conference with experts providing practical strategies. The recordings are available here.
