Marge, The Blamer, and Muriel, The Wanderer
Marge and Muriel are combined in a 19 minute superb teaching tool. This practical documentary offers caregivers methods for communicating with disoriented very old people (probable Alzheimer’s or related disorders). The video addresses how to deal with elderly people who begin making unfair or seemingly irrational accusations against those who care for them. By way of example, the video shows caregivers what to do when an 85 year old woman wanders from home, doesn’t recognize her family, and becomes abusive.
In clear “before” and “after” scenes, Muriel and Marge offer families and staff helping techniques that will reduce burnout for caregivers and stress for the very old person.
