Review

Jolene Brackey offers caregivers and families one practical suggestion after another, including ways to use the important details of a persons history, passions, and interests to empower loved ones to overcome daily struggles.

(ANN KAISER STEARNS, PhD, best-selling author of Living Through Personal Crisis (2010))

Alzheimer’s disease wraps its tendrils around all those within the range of loveof the person living with the disease. Jolene Brackey’s Creating Moments of Joy shows us how dear healing moments can be experienced by all who are within the grasp of the disease. (PAUL RAIA, PhD, retired vice president of clinical services, Alzheimer’s)

I have been working with older adults with dementia for over twenty-five years. Jolene brings a perspective that crosses both years and bridges. Whether the caregivers are family or professional, young or ‘vintage,’ rookie or seasoned, she understands the struggles and creates a language to communicate with them all.

(DEBORAH RICHMAN, BS, ACC, vice president of education and outreach, Alzheimer’s Association Minnesota / North Dakota)

Jolene shows us how to lighten up and even find humor in the most highly charged situations.

(KAREN AND KIM, co-founders of In Care of Dad)

This book is key for anyone looking to transform a hardship into a life-affirming experience for both the care recipient and the caregiver, ultimately making you a more effective caregiver as well as a happy one!

(CARLYNE FOURNIER, producer of the short film Remember When) --This text refers to the paperback edition.
