New Help For Alzheimer’s Patients and Their Caregivers

Alzheimer’s disease is one of society’s most devastating diseases, not only because of what it does to the Alzheimer’s sufferer but as much because of the toll it takes on the caregiver. For this reason Alzheimer’s care has become a growing priority in America.

While medical science searches for a cure and a preventative, the search is underway to develop therapeutic strategies for Alzheimer’s care that can slow the progress of the dementia or can bring relief to patients and Alzheimer’s caregivers alike. In recent years, memory stimulation has been discovered to slow the progress of dementia in Alzheimer’s patients as well as other forms of progressive dementia. Studies have found that by exercising the memory of the Alzheimer’s patient, one can successfully slow the progress of the dementia. This has led to the suggestion that family members create what is termed a “memory repository” which can be used to help stimulate and exercise the portions of the brain that deal with memory. Memory repositories, simply put, are external artifacts which can trigger the memory of a patient. These can be in the form of photo journals, scrapbooks or DVDs or any practical method for displaying these memory triggers.

In commenting on this area of study, the Mayo Clinic said, “Your life is like a tapestry, woven from your memories of people and events. Some threads are dark, while others are bright. Your individual tapestry shines vividly in your mind, reminding you of who you are, where you’ve been and what you’ve done.

“Alzheimer’s disease gradually robs people of the memories that make up their tapestries. You can help mend these holes by creating a tangible repository of memories – in a scrapbook, videotape or audiotape.

“Caregivers become the memory for their loved one with Alzheimer’s disease,” says Glenn Smith, Ph.D., a neuropsychologist at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn. “By gathering memories, you can bring important events and experiences from your loved one’s past into the present. You’re the link to his or her life history.”*

The need to create more practical and supportive way to provide mental stimulation has resulted in a new market and the development of new products to fill that need. New table top and hand held puzzles and other toys have been created and existing toys that once entertained young children, like clear plastic containers filled with water and colored oil that flows through a partition like an hourglass have been updated to be more appropriate for this new market. Each one either provides stimulation for the mind or the hands.

Another new line of innovate products are found in therapeutic quilts. One such product, the “touch quilt” is created out of a variety of various cloths, each with a highly distinct texture. Textures such as like corduroy, flannel or terrycloth can engage the nervous hands of an Alzheimer’s sufferer and calm him/her. At the same time the quilt itself can provide warmth and comfort to the patient. Cold extremities are common among even the healthiest of seniors, the result of a natural reduction in circulation.

A recent development in therapeutic quilts is the “fidget quilt.” A fidget quilt is smaller than a “touch quilt”, usually around 20″ square, and is particularly useful for Alzheimer’s patients who exhibit greater nervous tension in their hands. The fidget quilt is adorned with a variety of buttons, zippers and other items designed to hold the attention of the Alzheimer’s patient and can provide hours of tactile entertainment while adding the natural comfort that comes from a good quality of flannel or other soft cloth. Many experienced Alzheimer’s caregivers swear by the effectiveness of the fidget quilt.

The therapeutic photo memory quilt is yet another recent development which is receiving raves reviews throughout the industry. Although there are no universal templates for a therapeutic photo memory quilt, the most effective therapeutically designed photo memory quilts have large photos for easy viewing and the photos are labeled to not only further trigger the memories in early stage Alzheimer’s patients, but also to facilitate interaction with professional caregivers who aren’t familiar with the patients family. It’s this conversation that significantly enhances the effectiveness of the photos which have been printed into the fabric.

The natural advantage of the therapeutic photo memory quilt over a scrapbook is that it can provide the opportunity of continuous stimulation while resting on the patients lap or on their bed and caregivers can utilize the quilt during casual contact with the patient whereas the scrapbook has to be brought to the patient and requires the active participation of the caregiver during its use. Nor does the scrapbook doesn’t offer the opportunity for casual use by caregivers during routine interactions.

The therapeutic photo memory quilt can be particularly helpful outside the home in an assisted care facility where the Alzheimer’s care givers don’t usually have the time to bring out a scrapbook, lack knowledge of the history of the patients but interact with the patient many times a day in the normal course of their duties. Each encounter becomes an opportunity to stimulate the memory by directing the patient’s attention to a photo, identifying the picture and asking the patient a question about it.

While the new toys and puzzles can be substituted with recycled children’s varieties, the adult versions are usually more ergonomically suited and can be purchased at various websites on the internet. Touch quilts and fidget quilts can be crafted at home and in some limited cases, volunteer groups might be found stitching them as a charity project. Some skilled quilt makers also make different forms of memory quilts for their loved ones which can be adapted for Alzheimer’s patients as well.

Why Playing Online Games Is Beneficial

The appeal of online games has never been more popular today than it was a few decades ago. Thanks to an ever increase in access to the internet and constant development in visuals and graphics with realistic features, online gaming is here to stay. In fact, research shows that one in every five internet user visits gaming sites and this number will steadily increase in the next few years as game developers use more advanced technological equipment to make games even more realistic. Although some people may claim that playing online games can be harmful, there are some health benefits with playing games online.

Boosting Memory and Cognitive Development

Games available in the internet are not exclusive, meaning that, players have access to a variety of games. One type of game is that can actually help boost your memory and develop your cognitive skills. We all know that humans normally do not use 100% of their brain function and if one does, often only one side is often used. Puzzles, trivia, logics and other problem solving games help improve brain function and this is not only in one part of the brain but in all areas of it. As the internet grows day by day, one has limitless sources of games, making it easier to challenge oneself with new and exciting activities to work on.

Gateway to Health and Recovery

People with health issues or those who are recovering from illness may find using online game tools helpful to speed up their recovery. Adults who have kids that are sick may also find games that will help kids understand their illness and make it easier for them to deal with such illness. Some games are not only entertaining but also educational making these ideal tools to not only foster creativity but also understanding. Some not-for-profit organizations also make use of online games to help educate kids and adults.

Improve Social Interaction

People that have social interaction problems or are too shy may find it hard to develop friendships in the real world. This dilemma is eliminated through playing online games especially the role-playing ones. Most of the games have an online community so one would not feel alone and can even foster friendships that can extend outside the virtual world. Another thing that is great about this is that one can be oneself and does not need to fake themselves just to be accepted as the virtual gaming community accepts and does not discriminate against age, race and gender.

Having Fun With Your New Marshmallow Gun

Marshmallows are confectionaries made from sugar, starch, gelatin, and corn syrup. They are a big hit with children and adults alike. Originally from Egypt and considered a delicacy, marshmallows were made from the sap of the mallow plant, and since these plants grow in marshes, it has since been called marshmallows. From being handmade, the process turned mechanical using a starch mogul, where the molds were made from corn starch. This method was later replaced by the extrusion process where the marshmallows came out of an extruder machine. This is the current method of manufacture. Mallow sap was eventually replaced by gelatin, which was combined with sugar, corn starch and syrup to give the fluffy texture.

This yummy, fluffy candy was introduced in America in the 1900s and grew very popular in the 1950s. Today USA is the largest consumer of marshmallows, buying more than 90 million pounds per year!! Toasted marshmallows are very popular during Christmas time. In fact, the sales of marshmallows are maximum between October and December. During that time and the rest of the year too, they make their way into children’s parties and holiday fun.

The kids are bored during school holidays and parents at their wits’ end, get creative in keeping their children occupied! Who has not played with a marshmallow gun?! As children, we made use of a plastic cup whose bottom was sawed off. A large balloon’s rim was tied into a knot, which was your gun’s trigger. The other end of the balloon was snipped off, and the edge of the small hole stretched over the bottom end of the cup to cover it. The cup with a marshmallow in it and a few in our pocket, we would head out for battle! Spying the first victim, I would aim the mouth of the cup at her, and pull back the balloon for a good stretch and let go! Wham! Hit! Delighted peals of laughter would follow…

One can get creative with these sorts of marshmallow shooters. The cups can be conveniently fashioned into snowmen, elves or other happy (or fierce) faces with colorful balloon caps! The striped and spotted balloons make better caps too.

The Marshmallow shooter kit

Now you get a DIY marshmallow shooter kit. This kit has a few pipes, elbows and end cap required to assemble a marshmallow shooter in a moment. It is so easy that a child can do it and use it to shoot marshmallows. The satisfaction of using something made by the child herself will add to the excitement of the game.

These are wonderful ideas for gifting or even an activity session for children. PVC ½ inch pipes can be cut to the different lengths. A minimum of two PVC elbows, one T (all ½ inch) and an end cap for each marshmallow gun, a blast of spray paint to jazz it up and the kids are all set to have their wars with marshmallow ammo!

Risks of Not Keeping Your Kids At a Healthy Weight

Child Obesity is becoming a national concern for the last few decades and is getting worse every year. Many doctors are very troubled by this trend and are working on ways to fix this issue.

Child obesity affects children and youth in so many ways. Obesity in childhood is connected to many different health related problems. Some of the health problems are asthma, high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea, high cholesterol and even social discrimination.

One of the main issues is that if a child has obesity issues, these can carry on into adulthood.

Obesity in children has one side affect besides health affects. The Psychological affects of being over weight makes kids easy targets of social discrimination. This stress of social discrimination can cause low self esteem, which is very hard in young kids, and will carry on into adulthood.

Cardiovascular Disease risks in very high is children. In a recent study it was found that almost 60% of obese children age 5 to 17 year olds had at least one risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol or abnormal glucose tolerance. At least 25% of the children had at least two or more of these rick factors.

There are other health risks associated with obesity in children. Sleep apnea is not that common in kids, but can still be an issue with about 7% of kids. Hepatic Steatosis in another health issue associated with obesity. It is an fatty degeneration of the liver.

Type 2 diabetes in being diagnosed by doctors in children who are overweight. Asthma is also being diagnosed by doctors as more studies are showing that there is a connection between children being overweight and asthma.

So we all need to work with our Kids eating healthy food and keep they active. Start eating healthy at home and help them stay active. Tip: I know kids can end up loving playing video games on their computer, but keep track of their computer usage and make them get outside to play and run around.

7 Steps to High Paying Clients

Many entrepreneurs dream of doing what they love and getting highly paid for it. Not me. I was so off-my-rocker excited about the process of coaching that I left my first coaches training session ready to coach the world.

The money part came later for me. I soon had more clients than I could keep straight, and I knew something needed to shift about my business model.

Attracting your ideal clients at the fees you truly desire is totally possible. You don’t even have to be good at selling.

It truly comes down to attraction, which is more focused on the being rather than the doing. When how you’re being is aligned with a business full of rock star clients, you will end up marketing in your most ideal way.

Here’s my new-school golden rules for attracting high-paying clients:

1. Know your desired outcome and how you want to feel before you exchange a single word (spoken or written) with your potential clients.

2. Be unattached to IMMEDIATE results. If the client says YES tomorrow or next year, it will still be exciting.

3. Connect to your Inner Business Expert; it trumps ANY sales strategy.

4. Realize you don’t NEED anyone or any client. When you need them, you begin to move into disconnection and lack. You say and do things that feel wimpy and desperate.

5. KNOW who your ideal client is. I mean really know who would make you say, “HELL YES, I want to play with you!” Be strong enough to say no to anyone who doesn’t fit the criteria.

6. Be aligned with your pricing. Forget what the market will bear and what your competitors charge. The only thing that matters is that you are happy with your pricing.

7. Focus on end results and how it will be when your pipeline is full of those clients who pay you what you desire. We put so much energy on HOW we will attract them that we go into our mental mind… not attractive. Leave the how to the universe, please.

Creating a buzz around what you do is pretty simple in essence. Buzz is created by how excited you are about what you offer.

If you stay in the power of the passion, you will be connected to your Inner Business Expert, which will lead you to the perfect people, ideas, promotional copy, and the perfect words to say to your ideal peeps!

Never, ever get caught up in the how and what to say. When you are connecting to your potential client’s heart and your ears are wide open, clients will be waiting in line for you. No matter how high your prices. Really.

How to Boost Self Esteem Through Play

Children boost self esteem through play. While they play, children are developing an understanding of themselves and others, increasing their mastery and knowledge of their physical world, and learning to communicate with others. Play is essential to children’s development by contributing to their physical, social, cognitive and emotional well being.

Unfortunately, time and opportunities for free play have noticeably reduced for many children.

Learning to have the ability to focus and concentrate for long periods is markedly reduced, as well as the opportunity to boost self esteem through play.

Why are children being deprived of play opportunities by parents?

In the ever increasing marketing of hi-technology games for children, educational DVD’s, television programmes and other structured activities, children are losing their natural ability for creativity.

Parents often follow media and marketing trends in the hope that they will boost their children’s self esteem and intelligence. Many forget how important it is for a child to lose himself in concentrated, imaginative play.

Another reason is that in many places, children’s free time playing out of doors has been greatly reduced, if not curtailed completely, because of fear of strangers, media publicity of child attacks, and an increasing sense that neighborhoods are no longer safe.

Self Esteem Activities

Play creates constant opportunities for inner growth and mastery, as adults respond to their child’s innate imaginative play.

For example, in games such as hide and seek, peek a boo, and playing pretend house, children learn to interact with other children and adults, learn about taking turns, sharing, communicating, achieving mastery, and playing with others.

As toddlers develop, pretend play often takes centre stage in their playing time and many a first time parent is simply awed at their toddler’s ability to initiate and understand the concept of pretending.

Children learn and express what they feel and understand about their world through complex action during play and take on intricate role playing.

Many parents are shocked to see themselves as examples of expert mimicry, and often recognise with dismay as well as mirth, some of their own actions being copied and practiced by their toddlers.

Here are some suggestions for supporting childrens’ imaginative play

Schedule large amounts of free time so your child learns that he can relax and concentrate.

Let your child know that he doesn’t have to hurry, doesn’t have to clean up right away, can make a big mess, will have all morning, or all day, or until next Friday, or whatever.

Create special play times when you can tell your child clearly:

“You don’t have to hurry”. “You can have all the time you need.”

* Talk with your children about their play.

* Play with them fully so they see and know how much you value play.

* Get involved in providing suggestions, activities, ingredients, props, play clothes and ideas.

* Child proof areas so that safety is not too problematic.

How to promote play to boost self esteem for your toddler

Your toddler:

* Needs a safe environment in which to play and explore

* Enjoys sandpits, swings, slides, playgrounds, swimming pools and walking

* Likes to imitate by pretending to perform adult tasks

* Benefits from play in water, dirt, sand and with leaves, sticks and stones.

* Enjoys large cardboard boxes and other non-toy play things.

As a parent:

* Do provide the time and space for concentrated play activities.

* Childproof and create safe play areas.

* Do allow your child to help with chores, work at the kitchen bench, do cleaning.

* Do read to your child at least daily

* Provide your child with housekeeping toys such as a toy vacuum, pots and pans, brooms and mops, cleaning clothes.

* Control television watching and technological toys

* Walk outside often, play in nature, explore, ramble and swim together.

* Never underestimate the power of music to relax, enliven and teach your child.

Choosing and Fitting the Right Shoe For Your Child

As parents, we always want the best for our children. Did you know that most of our kids are wearing shoes that are too small? Don’t feel too bad, it happens to us all (yes, even your friendly neighborhood Houston podiatrist).

We are conditioned to our own adult feet, which are no longer growing. We wear our shoes until they die, and often well past their demise. We buy shoes out of desire, but not necessity. Kids are different.

The feet of children are rapidly growing and developing and need room to do so. But don’t give them too much room. The old days of buying shoes with “room to grow” were just our parents trying to stretch the usage of the shoes. Don’t do that! Kids need shoes that fit them properly, just like you do.

What do you look for when you are buying shoes for children? First of all – keep shoes off of your infant! Babies who are not yet walking should be barefoot or wearing socks or soft booties…nothing more. Oh, and I don’t care if they are so cute or match the outfit. Keep them off! Babies need to explore their feet for proper development and feel what it is like to stand and balance barefoot. They need that natural feedback, so let them have it.

I’ll relent a bit once the kid starts walking. The shoe, however, needs to be flexible. If you push up under the toe area while holding the shoe, the shoe should flex upwards with minimal resistance. Toddlers’ feet also do not need any arch support, so don’t look for shoes that have it.

This changes between ages 3 and 4 when you may notice some in-toeing, out-toeing, toe walking, or excessive stumbling. Children this age don’t have the ability to compensate for biomechanical forces and issues like adults do. Their pediatrician may tell you that the child will grow out of it. Even so, what most commonly happens is that kids just develop the ability to compensate for those biomechanical forces and the mechanics lead to problems down the road. Identifying issues early and putting a child into a custom foot support, called an orthotic, when needed will allow the kid to develop around a more mechanically correct position. Because of this, the correction that an orthotic device provides to a child may become permanent.

Also at this age, kids start wearing shoes that are more familiar in appearance you your adult shoes. Many athletic shoe companies will make sizes for children. You should also buy a shoe according to the activity, just like you do for adults. For instance a running shoe for kids who enjoy running (not playing, I’m talking about running). The rule of thumb is to have about a half-inch between the longest toe and the end of the shoe.

Your child’s feet are crucial to their happiness. Kids are built to go nonstop – bundles of energy to run, jump, play, and climb. If you see your kid sitting out during a game, or refusing to walk when you are out shopping, don’t chalk it up to laziness. First check to see if the shoes are too small. If they’re not, consider taking the child to a podiatrist to see if there is anything more you can do to get your child active once again.

Truth About Online Games

One thing which never seems to die down will be the hype created by online games. Many might think that the fever of online games has died down but they couldn’t have been more wrong. In fact, online games are most popular today in comparison to what they were a few decades ago. The undying appeal for the virtual world of gaming is at a constant up rise. Due to the advancements in technology, the graphics, quality of visuals and sounds, have drastically increased in every capacity, simply pulling more fans into its area of influence. The access to the internet has also increased the number of people who can access these games in the very first place. The realistic sense of the virtual world, which we refer to as the world of gaming, simply plunges every person into its orbit. This in turns them into obsessive fans to this illusionary, yet very surreal world which is under their control and power.

When coming down to online games, over the years, they have seemed to have gained unparalleled followers unlike any other. As mentioned before due to the increased access of the internet, the advanced technological graphics used simply make games very addictive. Due to the mere fact that these games are to be accessed online, time is rather saved from downloading these very games at the very start. Few games also allow a user to save their progress after a very short sign in process which can be logged in through social media websites as well such as Facebook, Google+, Yahoo etc. A recent study has also shown that almost one in every five users on the internet access gaming websites and this number is predicted to increase with the due passage of time as game developers are very keen on producing innovative time effective and fan-following online games which keeps a user busy for days. Even though a handful of people would go against the very essence of online games, there are not only multiple, but several benefits of online gaming which many are unaware of. Luckily for you, who stumbled upon this article, be aware of all the benefits which online games have to offer.

Enhance Memory

Online gaming provides a platform which is indeed very re-collective in terms of making a user plunge into the world of gaming. The biggest perk of online games is that the user has a variety of games to choose from which are away at a click of a second, at equal lapses. Everyone is aware of the fact that humans normally do not utilise 100% of their brain function. Games like puzzles, logic based games, trivia and problem solving games help brain function. Normally humans use one part of the brain but by playing these specific ones, the brain of the user does not only one part of the brain but almost all areas are active and functional. With new games added to the list every day, the user has countless options to choose from alongside new activities to indulge into in the online world of gaming.

Recovery & Health

There are many people out there who are suffering from all kinds of illnesses. Online tools used in games can be very helpful in this regard to help speed up recovery. Parents whose child is sick may find refuge in these games to understand how their child is suffering and can make them understand their child better. Most of the tools which are used in gaming help to increase sharpness and awareness amongst kids which is a great way to booth and improve the mental health of many children suffering from illnesses such as dyslexia. Not all games on the internet are for entertainment; rather most revolve around an educational background which is indeed a motivational area of comfort for children. Many non profit organisations formulate games in order to help aid those children and adults which are suffering for specific kinds of illnesses.

Social Interaction

Many people are shy when it comes to mingling along with others and finding comfort amongst their fellows. During this dilemma, many find solace through interacting with fellow players in the gaming world. This is something which has over the years taken a turn for the best in order to increase social interaction. There are communities formed within these games which indeed form a bond between all prayers and rather forms a community. The virtual world indeed is sometimes very promising when it comes to providing people a platform to voice out without their identity being given out. Such examples of games include Club Penguin which has become very popular. The game simply allows people to entire a world which is full of penguins and for them to interact with other players who too are penguins. These people are from places across the globe. Users also have the option to chat with fellow players and parents have the option to keep a close eye on their children as the site asks for parental consent before indulging in the game.

All in all, there are many more benefits which the virtual world of online games has to offer which not many people are aware of. Only a few are stated in this article but do try out this as an experience for yourself by trying out an online game and then sharing your experiences in terms of benefits.

The Four Stages of Female Arousal – The Signs

There are four stages to female arousal. Each stage has importance in the process of female orgasm. When a man knows these stages lie the back of his hand, he will be able to use them to his advantage when helping a woman to have a female orgasm. There are actually many internal changes, but this article is about the signs, so you can learn about other changes elsewhere.

Stage 1: Arousal

When a woman is becoming aroused, the blood vessels in their genital area will dilate, increasing the blood-flow to their genitals. The fluid that passes through their vaginal walls (that acts as lubrication) is actually caused by the increased flow of blood to their vaginal walls.

The outer parts of her genitals will swell (this includes her clitoris, vaginal opening and labia). This is why it almost seems as if the vagina is opening itself, and the clitoral hood moves back revealing more of the clitoral glans. The labia will look flushed, so this is an obvious sign of arousal. Blood vessels all over her body will dilate too, so her face and other body parts may look flushed, especially on her chest and neck. And most women will get erect nipples. This is a very useful indicator of arousal… not so useful later on.

Note – Arousal makes finding the g-spot much easier, as it will swell and become more obvious.

Stage 2: Plateau

The lower part of the vagina will become quite firm, as the blood flow to this part of the vagina is at its limit. This is the “orgasmic platform” (scientifically introitus). This the part of the vagina that undergoes the rhythmic contractions during the female orgasm.

Her breasts look flushed and begin to swell during arousal, but it is during the plateau that they become more symmetrical and can swell up to 25 per cent. The nipples can seem less erect due to increased blood flow to the areola. So do not think that she has lost arousal because of this. As she approaches orgasm, the clitoris seems to retract to the pubic bone, so it can be more difficult to stimulate. Don’t lose it.

Stage 3: Orgasm

Orgasm is the release of all the sexual tension that is built up during the first two stages of female arousal. The giveaway signs of orgasm are the rhythmic contractions. Each contraction is approx 0.8 seconds apart. And the difference between clitoral and g-spot orgasms is that clitoral orgasms are more localized to the genital area. But g-spot orgasms tend to be full-body orgasms, and can last much longer. Also, g-spot orgasms are more likely to lead to multiple orgasms, as the clitoris is often too sensitive after orgasm.

Foreplay is of vital importance when it comes to female arousal and orgasms. As it is the force that keeps up the momentum for arousal in plateau, which must me achieved before orgasm.

Note: Please don’t be fooled by fake orgasmic screaming. Strong contractions in the vagina and anus are the best way to tell if a woman has had an orgasm. (Do not use the anus method unless you know it won’t bother the woman). Web surveys have revealed that 37-50% of women fake orgasms. And here’s a fun little fact… up to 48% of men have faked them too! But I digress…

Stage 4: Resolution

Her body goes back to its normal state. Not instantly… it takes time. This is where continued stimulation can lead to another orgasm. Anyway, the breathing and heart rates will return to normal and tho woman will feel very relaxed, and even sometimes sleepy.

So that’s it for this article… Get out (or stay in!) and start using this information.
