Alzheimer's Patients Can Help You Study For A Test!

I had a very difficult test to take on Friday.  I needed to learn all of the spanish speaking countries, their capitals, classification and location on a map.  I created flash cards to study.  Grandma came to visit me. She found my flash cards, and kept reading them to me over and over and over again. People with Alzheimer's disease repeat things a lot, because they do not remember that they already made their comment.  It can be sometimes be annoying, and it is hard to not lose your patience. In this case, grandma's repetitive behavior was so helpful for me. It was like listening to a recording with all of the facts, needed for my test. 


1. Put notes from school on index cards.
2. Keep it simple.
3. Give it to your loved one to read out loud 
4. Listen carefully, and learn the stuff you need for your exam!
