Massage and caregiving services for bay area seniors

Motherhealth caregivers provide comfort and health monitoring to home bound bay area seniors. As we massage the aching bodies of seniors who are mostly bed-bound , we also give a hug and loving words. Most seniors are alone and need hugs and loving touch.

Even a trumpist who is bed ridden became soft and warm hearted upon receiving massage from Motherhealth caregivers who are from all walks of life (older, Filipina, African Americans, Ethiopians, retired, health care pros, CNAs, healers, massage therapists).

Poor bowel control, dementia, low potassium levels and the brain

What to do with lose bowel with someone who has dementia and diabetes?  Low potassium levels can cause diarrhea. Email motherhealth@gmail.com if you have an answer as one of our clients have this case.

I remembered caring for a male client with pancreatic cancer and on dextrose (salt, sugar, water) in the hospital 3 days before he died. His liquid poop is similar to that of a newborn , towards the end it is so dark in color.

While some are constipated , our brain controls our movement and during the last stage of a our disease, we have poor bowel function.

What will the effect be when using activated charcoal and or potassium and magnesium rich diet of veggies in this scenario?

Some have good appetite while others cannot swallow. A client becomes eligible for hospice care when he/she cannot swallow.

Some clients in care homes are still able to swallow but immobile during the last stage of their Alzheimer that their family then decides to expire them with sublingual morphine.

Many times, even with sublingual morphine it takes more than a week for some. We trained our caregivers to be at their side, massaging them or just praying with them.

Remember that during the last stage of our lives, the last sense to go is the sense of hearing.

Scientists find clue to age-related memory loss

WASHINGTON – Scientists have found a compelling clue in the quest to learn what causes age-related memory problems, and to one day be able to tell if those misplaced car keys are just a senior moment or an early warning of something worse.

Wednesday’s report offers evidence that age-related memory loss really is a distinct condition from pre-Alzheimer’s – and offers a hint that what we now consider the normal forgetfulness of old age might eventually be treatable.

Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center examined brains, young and old ones, donated from people who died without signs of neurologic disease. They discovered that a certain gene in a specific part of the hippocampus, the brain’s memory center, quits working properly in older people. It produces less of a key protein.

That section of the brain, called the dentate gyrus, has long been suspected of being especially vulnerable to aging. Importantly, it’s a different neural neighborhood than where Alzheimer’s begins to form.

But it’s circumstantial evidence that having less of that protein, named RbAp48, affects memory loss in older adults. So the researchers took a closer look at mice, which become forgetful as they age in much the same way that people do.

Sure enough, cutting levels of the protein made healthy young rodents lose their way in mazes and perform worse on other memory tasks just like old mice naturally do.

More intriguing, the memory loss was reversible: Boosting the protein made forgetful old mice as sharp as the youngsters again, the researchers reported in the journal Science Translational Medicine.

“It’s the best evidence so far” that age-related memory loss isn’t the same as early Alzheimer’s, said Nobel laureate Dr. Eric Kandel, who led the Columbia University team.

And since some people make it to 100 without showing much of a cognitive slowdown, the work begs another question: “Is that normal aging, or is it a deterioration that we’re allowing to occur?” Kandel said.

“As we want to live longer and stay engaged in a cognitively complex world, I think even mild age-related memory decline is meaningful,” added Columbia neurologist Dr. Scott Small, a senior author of the study. “It opens up a whole avenue of investigation to now try to identify interventions.”

This is early-stage research that will require years of additional work to confirm, cautioned Dr. Molly Wagster of the National Institute on Aging, who wasn’t involved with the report.

But Wagster said the findings add to a growing body of evidence suggesting “that we’re not all on the road to Alzheimer’s disease” after we pass a certain age.

For example, other researchers have found that connections between neurons in other parts of the brain weaken with normal aging, making it harder but not impossible to retrieve memories. In contrast, Alzheimer’s kills neurons.

How does Wednesday’s research fit? Many pathways make up a smoothly functioning memory, and that protein plays a role in turning a short-term memory – like where you left those car keys – into a longer-term one, Kandel explained.

Some good news: Scientists already know that exercise makes the dentate gyrus – that age-targeted spot in the hippocampus – function better, Small said. He’s also studying if nutrition might make a difference.
