Editorial Reviews

Review

This text provides specific information on a wide range of behaviors. The detailed information on environmental, physical, and emotional influences is very beneficial to both family and professional caregivers striving to make improvements that may avoid difficult behaviors. These practical strategies for making changes based on possible causes and guidance to proglem-solve helps to avoid the behavior and address it when it occurs. I would highly recommend this book to any one caring for an individual with memory loss. --Kim Walsh, formerly with the Michigan Great Lakes Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association.

My stepfather used the suggestions in this book to help with the care of my mother, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. He said it was the best resource he had seen. It was easy to use, providing lots of practical help in her care. --Jo Campbell, family caregiver.

Format: Paperback
As a professional in the field of dementia health care, I feel this book should be "required reading" for all health care providers. It is an incredible, practical book written by the well known expert in the field of gerentology, Anne Robison-Kalter. Ms. Robinson-Kalter offers compassionate strategies for caretakers and families. It is easy to read and difficult to put down.
