Medication

People with Alzheimer's disease usually need to take medication. Grandma took Aricept and Namenda, and some other medication as well.

Before grandma went to live in a memory care facility we used to call her 3 times a day to remind her to take her medication.

Even AFTER moving into a memory care facility with aides to help, it was STILL a struggle. Sometimes the aides had to call us and ask us to talk to her, to convince her to take her medication.

I found a very helpful article called "How to give medications to someone with dementia" by Lauren Mahakian.  It gives very good advice!
