The King and The Pawn – A Poem a Families Dementia Journey

Another Beautiful Poem

Submitted By A Community Member

 

The King and The Pawn

  by Carol Brown

The King and The Pawn
The roles have now reversed as you
became the parent and I
became the child.

When you entered my space then
It became the games that people
play, or the games that
you and I played from
day to day.

My mindset became your mindset
for we were now one. My thoughts became your thoughts,
we thought like one.

My footsteps became your footsteps
as you followed me.

My world became your world
however difficult it might be.

When I roamed the house, you roamed
the house walking besides me,
watching my every footstep while protecting me.

When I crawled under the Baby Grand
Piano you followed me, removing me
from a dangerous place where I thought
we could play the game of hide and seek.

 

At night time, sleep was only a fallacy,

for this was the best time to roam the house
while you were asleep.

Climbing 13 stairs to get to
my “palace” on the second
floor, and locking myself
In the bedroom closet where I could
call for help through the closet door.

Returning down stairs, to a house
that was pitch black,
I would continue my mission to
steal popsicles from the refrigerator for my delight.

When I attempted to flee the house
against your advice, you changed the
locks on the doors and hid my
shoes to stop my flight.

When I was hospitalized and placed in
restraint, you advised medical staff
Of what I would do, but they
failed to listen and found me
down the hall, in a patient’s
room, hiding in the bathroom shower stall.

From 1994 until 2008 and
for fourteen years, with our brains
boggled and lives modified
to an arduous way of life,
My footsteps became
your footsteps as we roamed the
house together and played games my way .

Yes, I did it my way and you did
what I’d say.

” Doggone your time” is what I would say, for
having Alzhemier’s is a game,
a Chess Game that you,
(The Pawn)
and I
(The King)
played from day to day.

Study of Deaths Pertaining to Dementia Resident to Resident Offers Insights to Inform Policy and Prevention

We at Alzheimer’s Speaks and Dementia Chats are so proud of Eilon Caspi’s work to improve the quality of life for those living with dementia.  This is one of his latest articles.  It is such a privilege to work with a man who is so dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of others. Thank you Eilon.

Study of Deaths – Resident – to – Resident Incidents in Dementia

Offers Insights to Inform Policy and Prevention

Analyzing the incidents between residents in dementia in long-term care homes may hold the key to reducing future fatalities among this vulnerable population, according to new research from the University of Minnesota School of Nursing. Gathered from media accounts and death review records, the exploratory study by Eilon Caspi, PhD, is the first to examine the circumstances surrounding the death of elders as a result of resident-to-resident incidents in dementia in the United States and Canada.

Despite growing concerns about the projected growth in the number of people with dementia and the expected rise in resident-to-resident incidents, the phenomenon is not currently being tracked by the two largest federally mandated clinical and oversight systems in nursing homes in the U.S.

“The fact that we are not capturing and tracking this phenomenon represents a major missed opportunity for learning and prevention of these incidents,” says Caspi, the study’s author and a research associate at the School of Nursing. “We need to develop a data-driven national action plan to reduce these incidents and ensure that frail and vulnerable residents will remain safe in the last years of their lives. Delivery of evidence-based staff training programs to improve understanding, prevention and de-escalation of these episodes is urgently needed.”

Nearly half (44 percent) of all fatalities were the results of physical contact classified as push-fall.

While men and women equally died as a result of these incidents, three-quarters of exhibitors were men.

More than half (59 percent) of all incidents took place inside bedrooms and 43 percent involved roommates.

Evenings (44 percent) were the most common time for incidents to occur, with 38 percent of all incidents occurring on weekends. 62 percent were reportedly not witnessed by staff.
