One point that really hit home was when she said to interact without expecting a response. Just because someone doesn't respond doesn't mean they haven't heard you.
Wonderfully positive perspective on navigating the journey. Highly recommend.
Aside from being a rich resource for caregivers, "15 Minutes" is just as valuable to those of us who are not currently in that role (I believe another reviewer noted the same thing). My grandmother passed away two years ago at age 95 after a long battle with dementia, and my aunt was her sole caregiver for the last six years of her life. I wish so much that I'd had this book to share with my aunt...particularly this quote: "The wrong promise to make to your loved one is 'I will be the only one who cares for you, and I'll keep you at home.' The right promise to make is 'We will walk this path together, and I'll make sure you have what you need.' This is an expanding promise you can keep." My aunt is an incredibly loving woman, and she had the best of intentions when she promised Grandma that she would always keep her at home. But unfortunately, this promise almost killed her mentally, physically and spiritually.
All in all, this is a book for anyone who has been personally touched by dementia, or simply wants to learn how to more deeply connect with themselves and others. The idea of a mere 15 minutes a day making such a huge impact in the life of one with dementia can easily be applied to the rest of us in our daily lives. Tell a story. Share a photo. Do whatever you can to help someone (or yourself) feel loved, appreciated and at peace with who they really are.
