Comforting the Confused provides background information, specific interventions, and teaching aids about communication, dementia, and dementia management issues. Numerous approaches are described for a variety of problem behaviors commonly encountered in working with persons with dementia. The teaching aids include pretests/posttests, learning objectives, case studies, and interactive exercises, all of which could easily be incorporated into classroom or inservice settings. References are provided at the end of each chapter to facilitate further study of particular issues. This book belongs in every caregiver's library.

This was very, VERY helpful in dealing with my aging stepmother. She is often living in the past, and this book has provided good ideas and strategies for managing the situation as well as possible. Also, I feel much better knowing that my actions are appropriate.

This book is great for the information it contains and suggestions given on caring for the elderly with dememtia or alzheimers. I would definitely recomment this to any family member or caregiver who cares for someone with these issues. Very insightful.
