This book helped me to identify when my mother started having problems with her memory; things that I thought were mood swings or behavior issues but were actually the onset of memory loss. This book taught me how to care for my loved ones and myself. It showed me what I needed to do to make changes in living arrangements and gave me guidelines to financial issues.
We all need help sometime and this book is a great one for just that reason. This book taught me that I could not do it alone and to seek out and ask for help for my loved one(s) and myself.
What a difference it has made to get a grasp on my dad's "reality". We have been able to avoid so many of the troublesome behaviors that are sometimes exhibited by Alzheimers sufferers, just be behaving properly, ourselves.
Who knew that the way we speak to and approach someone with this disease could make such a difference in the way they behave and react.
If you are facing this mind-boggling life situation, do yourself a favor...get this book, read it cover to cover, read it again and then insist that everyone who is a caregiver or has contact with your Alzheimers patient read it too. It will make a huge difference!
Thank hyou to the authors and all of their research and tips for thr caregivers. God bless them !!
Buy this book for your friends who you see going through this problem, even though the friends can't see it.
