DECATUR, GA, September 24, 2021: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new article on the law firm’s website entitled “How To Prepare For Visits With A Loved One Who Has Alzheimer’s.” Ms. Pawley has a depth of experience with dementia patients, caregivers and family members and shares her experience and expertise.
Pawley states, “September is World Alzheimer’s Month in which efforts are made to raise awareness and end the stigma that persists around dementia.” She continues, “It’s a perfect time to increase your understanding and awareness particularly if you have a loved one that you will be visiting during the upcoming holiday season. Also, if you are a caregiver for someone with Alzheimer’s who will be receiving guests during the holidays, it’s important to provide guidance and greater awareness to visitors prior to their visit.”
As Pawley points out, “This holidays season may be the first time in more than a year that family and friends will be visiting a loved one with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.” She continues, elaborating, “Many people are vaccinated, and it is becoming safer to travel since the onset of COVID-19 brought travel to a halt. It may have been a year or more since your loved one has had in person visitors. Maybe you’ve been having regular video visits, but soon your loved one will be having in person visits. As the caregiver,” she emphasizes, “it’s important to prepare visitors who will be showing up at your home. As the visitor, you can also take pre-emptive measures to help prepare yourself for your visit.”
On a personal note, Pawley shares, “My mother has vascular dementia which is one important reason why our law firm proudly promotes World Alzheimer’s Month.” She goes on to add, “Visiting someone with dementia of any kind requires a degree of consideration that visiting with anyone else doesn’t require. I am providing a list of tips for caregivers to help prepare your loved one for visitors. And I’m providing a list of do’s and don’ts for visitors from dailycaring.com, a website devoted to providing information for caregivers as well as anyone involved in the life of someone with dementias.”
