My city, Louisville KY, recently had a spike in COVID19 infections. It came from a handful of nursing homes. That nursing home and long-term care facilities account for large percentages of COVID19 cases has been well documented. In some cities, the majority of cases come from these facilities. These facts have sprouted platitudes about “protecting our elderly.” What makes this a platitude is that it belies the challenges faced by nursing facilities. Two recent papers shed light on these challenges. First is an article by Chris Pope in the City Journal. Second is an academic-like defense of Stoc...

Photo credit Daniel Von Appen Dear Carol: My mom's had dementia for a decade and has been living in the memory care unit of a nursing home for three years. The staff there are like family and they’ve been well trained in person-centered care. Now, though, the family is restricted from visiting because the staff is understandably consumed with not allowing the virus into the home  Hard as it is, I agree with what they’re doing, only I’m afraid that there’s little time for the hands-on, individual care that’s been so valuable. I’m not expecting things to be “normal,” ...

Dear Readers: This is a time of uncertainty for everyone, but for people who care for older adults and other vulnerable people, it’s terrifying. Older adults are especially at risk for COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the coronavirus, and you want to take care of them, but… Residents in facilities are being cared for, but you are likely not allowed to visit, and facilities, too, are short-staffed because of exposed or ill caregivers. Those at home alone will be more at risk with no one to care for them as even professionals are challenged to find creative ways of providing help. Family careg...

Photo credit Caleb George Dear Candid Caregiver: My parents were always open about their long-term plans for retirement, saying that they’ve worked hard and retirement was going to be the payoff. Travel was huge on the horizon. Now, my dad has been diagnosed with mixed dementia, which, in his case, means Alzheimer’s and possibly Lewy body dementia, so their dreams are pretty much canceled. Mom is, for the most part, a good caregiver, but she’s resentful about what happened, and why wouldn’t she be? She has a right to these feelings except that her resentment shows through to Dad through her bod...
