Post Creating a "meal clock" (Eric's idea)
One of the most brilliant people I've ever come across is EricSEA. He used to be a member here but the LBDA's policies towards the Forum were not to his liking. Perhaps he stopped posting here around the time he created a "meal clock" for his father-in-law.

On his blog, the "Pragmatic Caregiver," Eric discusses a behavioral modification approach to getting people to stay in bed when it's sleeptime -- create a "meal clock." See:

Thanks, Robin. I like the concept of the meal clock. Has there been any feedback as to whether or not it works? I guess you'd have to move it from room to room or make more than one. If the person is in a facility, I guess they only have the one room.

All I can tell you is that this worked for Eric and worked back in 2007 for at least two local support group members. (When Eric was actively blogging, I would send the blog entries with practical tips to the local support group.)

PS. In a nursing home, usually there is one room only. In an assisted living facility, there can be one room (a "studio") or multiple rooms. (I think Eric's father-in-law had a one BR apartment in the ALF.)

Just wondering does anyone know anything about Eric Sea and his loved one, how are they doing? I too have read all old posts from him and found everyone of them to be so honest, informative and have to say pleasant!

I saw EricSEA in SEA a few months ago. He is doing well. His LO died well over a year ago.

You know, Robin, that is so useful to know! Sometimes when I am reading someone's post I'm not even sure that person's LO is still alive. There should be some kind of directory whereby our LO's current status is listed. It would also be helpful information to all of us to know how long the deceased LO lived with LBD and what life was like toward the end. If there is such a directory, could you please direct me to it?

There is no directory.

Not everyone posts here when their loved ones die, and most do not stick around much after their LOs die.

I have no problem sharing that Eric's LO died because he shared that news here himself. Others who post about their loved ones' death on LBDcaregivers or send me a private email, I don't feel at liberty to share that news here. Same thing with neuropathology results. If the person doesn't share it here, I'm certainly not going to share it.
