Annual state of confusion

I don’t know why some weeks provide seniors with an utter state of confusion while other weeks they are perfectly lucid. It seems strange, yet changing conditions of many types can alter even the best of moods in any of us.
Let’s face it, too, when holidays arrive, each of us takes these “leaps and bounds” changes in ways that are personal to each of us. If young people’s moods change, it should only be common sense that a senior’s mood could also become altered.
Sometimes the mood changes are subtle while other times they may present caregivers with the challenge of a lifetime. That is why the sheer act of caregiving seems so exciting to me ~ because you can never quite imagine just what to expect! It is best to just go with the flow and do your utter best to show your elderly clients that your philosophy is With Age Comes Respect.
Holidays can be difficult for people of any age, but they can be a real bear for the aging. Some may feel as if they will be entirely alone and forgotten, while others may feel quite overwhelmed by masses of people visiting; confusing their everyday routine, making a lot of noise and getting things out of order! All of this can lead to mood changes, confusion and day-to-day upsets that may alter their lucidity.
