For the next few weeks, I've invited Pat Snyder, author of Treasures in the Darkness, to talk to us via Youtube. Her first video is about a subject that most dementia care partners have to deal with eventually and one that can be very stressful. In fact it was several stressful entries in an online support group that prompted Pat to make this video. Right now is a fairly stressful time already and we don't need more stress. I hope that her suggestions help you to limit the stress in your life--and your loved one's!
And so set aside 20 minutes to sit back and relax while you watch Pat's video on The Nightmare of Poop.
Next week, Pat will be back with another video.
