The pathways in the brain that control the memories of music are the last to deteriorate in individuals with Alzheimers. Because of this, music is a powerful tool. See how a group in Minnesota has utilized music to create a chorus of individuals with Alzheimers and their family members. Music is held in parts of the brain that don’t seem to be damaged by Alzheimer’s,” Lenard said. Music stimulates activity in both sides of the brain, sharpens the ability to focus, makes symptoms more manageable and improves cognitive function. It also brings joy. http://www.startribune.com/minnesota-s-trailblazing-alzheimer-s-choir-reminds-us-love-never-forgets/484898111/

Thank goodness winter has ended, but we are now faced with the heat. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE watch your elderly family members for signs/symptoms of dehydration. Check their skin for extreme dryness, is it hot and red? Do they complain of dizziness, headaches or muscle cramping? Encourage them to drink water and juices at every meal, to use air conditioning on extremely hot days, to rest and take a cool sponge bath during the day. Our elderly are high risk for dehydration due to they don't usually drink enough water on a normal day. These changes can happen within a few hours, so check in with them 1-2 times a day. Have a great summer, talk to you soon.

There is always something fun and new going on each time I am at one of my branches. In Burlington today, resident Mary Aringdale enjoys a chair massage after a yoga session with yoga instructor Angel Beck of Burlington. 10 residents came down to stretch and relax with the yoga session, then ended with a nice back massage. What a great way to relieve some stress and gear up for the day! Show me the zen!

Is it Spring yet? Not only has Mother Nature overslept, I think she is in a coma! We are all anticipating the arrival of warmer weather despite the calendar saying spring has been here almost a month. The branches are anxiously anticipating the opportunity to get outside to start planting flowers. Even though our pots and baskets are yet to make an appearance, we do have our front porches cleaned up and we invite you to enjoy the porch in the hopes spring will actually spring here soon!

Hello everyone, I am hoping Spring is around the corner and that the worst is over. If you have a loved one near or far away.. talk with them are they lonely, are they able to get out and about? Do they feel safe? The golden years should be enjoyed not feared or produce feelings of isolation. Here at Bickford Assisted Living we encourage our residents to continually participate in all daily routines and activities. We want them to make their decisions, their own choices, and to have a social network available for them with others in our community. Talk with your family member, find out what they do with their day, what hobbies did they enjoy... get them involved.

Hello everyone, I hope you are staying warm!!! Are you prepared to take care of your elderly family member? Do you know where their medical information is if they can't tell you? Now is a good time to sit down with your loved one to ask about their health condition, allergies, and medications they are taking. Find out what pharmacy they use and are they taking the medications as written on the bottle. Make sure all legal documents are in order and up to date including Power of attorney for health care, financial and health insurance. It is never to late to get things in order.....

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all. While this can be a joyous time for most of us,it can also be a stressful and lonely time for others. Here are some tips for creating a positive Holiday experience for our seniors. 1. Remind them how important they are to you and family. 2. Include them in Holiday meal preparation and decorating. 3. Encourage them to talk about their favorite holiday memories and help them to create new ones. 4. Take them to their favorite church and any holiday programs. 5. If they have any old friends close, contact them and arrange a small gathering. We all love our senior family members, so make sure to let them know frequently, and to all the Bickford family friends thank you for allowing us to care for your loved ones.
