I’d never heard of Teepa Snow until a fellow caregiver mentioned her videos. She’s the real deal. For sure check out her Positive Approach To Care videos on youtube.

Caregivers’ phone app

There’s a ton of info here, and it was one of my go-to’s when I took care of Mom and Dad. Didn’t realize at the time that it was put together by Home Instead Senior Care, a company I work for now. A little serendipity maybe? It’s available for Android and iOS.

Streaming music apps

There are several – Amazon Music, Pandora, Spotify, and others. Put one on your phone, dial in what you want to hear, and play. Pandora gives me better control of what genre of music I want to play, so it’s my go-to. Streaming music is a caregiver’s best tool.

Alzheimer’s Association

They’re nationwide, and they’re a good resource. Check with your local office to see what they offer; here’s a link to the Charleston SC office. If you can find one of their Savvy Caregiver class in your area, take it. It’s more geared to the dementia patient, and I learned tons from it.
