Updated 11/8/2021: I realized after I thought I picked up on the list where I left off, that I actually covered more words than I thought.
Before I get to this week’s word, I was contacted by someone who wanted to know what it means to give medical advice, and why I would not do it. So, here is a definition for giving medical advice, medical advice is the provision of a formal professional opinion regarding what a specific individual should or should not do to restore or preserve health. Typically, medical advice involves giving a diagnosis and/or prescribing treatment for a medical condition. Further into this topic discussing facts, or information is not giving medical advice. I do not diagnose, nor do I treat. I will work within a diet, or exercise regime if you already have one, except for walking. Walking is generally safe for everyone, and I do have a Walking Buddly Plan. That is part of the reason for the meet and greet, to see if you have underlying health diagnoses that need to be taken into account. Helping you set realistic, attainable goals, and learning ways to meet those health goals, is what a Health Coach does. You have to know your goal, or at least have some idea of your goal, and then a Health Coach helps you create realistic ways to meet those goals. Health Coaches are not meant to replace a doctor.
OK, on to our Memory Care word for this week: circumlocution. Watch the very short video below and you will get a general idea of this word, then look up the word, then in your journal write the word, and the definition 10 times. Then use it in a sentence, try to come up with synonyms for the word, draw it in a picture, or write a short paragraph using the word as many times as you can. Go back over all the previous words, saying them out loud with the definition, at least ten times. You should be starting to remember the ones at the beginning of the list, especially if you have been repeating them each week. All the previous words can be found in the archives. How are you doing so far? Are you testing yourself each week? I hope to have time this week, 11/8/2021, to create a free printable for my newsletter followers to learn and quiz themselves. If you would like to purchase a journal with my artwork on it, see the image below.
