Editorial Reviews

Review

A succinct, original tool for caregivers of people with Alzheimer disease and other dementias. Highly recommended.

(Peter V. Rabins, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, coauthor of The 36-Hour Day)

This is a good beginning book for the person who is learning to care for someone with dementia. It is sensitive to the feelings and needs of the caregiver.

(Nancy L. Mace, coauthor of The 36-Hour Day)

When caring for a loved one with dementia at home, there is little time for reading; this book was a quick read offering good insights to basic care.

Good resources were also offered.

Format: Paperback
Any who care for Alzheimer sufferers or those with other dementias know the challenges involved: eighty percent of people with dementia live at home, and family members often find themselves challenged by unfamiliar demands and new routines. When Your Loved One Has Dementia: A Simple Guide For Caregivers reviews all kinds of challenges, from safety in handling and caring for sufferers and communication challenges to understanding levels of impairment, daily life, and more. An excellent starting point for those with questions.

Even though this book may seem simple at first glance, it is loaded with advice that any caregiver can use. It covers the necessary basics that any caregiver must know about such as:communication, safety, and meaningful activities you can do together.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was suggested to me by a friend who is a psychiatric nurse when I asked if there was a book or two she could recommend that would give me more information about vascular dementia. It gives a lot of suggestions for things to do to assist people with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia; but, it didn't really answer the questions I have about what happens and why.

I am half way through this book and can already say that it is a great resource.
If you are starting down this road with a family member or friend get this book as soon as possible. It may take a few bumps out of the road for you.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By B. Guzman on March 3, 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great informational book for the person who is entering uncharted waters regarding the health and well-being of a family member or friend with mild cognitive impairment or mild dementia. It teaches the basics and is a great beginner book. You will need to pursue other avenues to obtain information regarding advanced impairment or dementia. This is a great door-opener but leaves questions unanswered regarding progression of dementia or Alzheimers and how to deal with issues regarding non-compliance of a patient.
