Editorial Reviews

Review

Ed Shoemaker - husband, father, family caregiver (eight years and not counting)
"Caregiving was not what I thought I'd do with the last years of my life, but God had other plans. And although life didn't give me the skills or understanding to respond to my wife's new needs, warehousing her in a nursing home was not an option. If you have family members experiencing dementia or providing care, the most loving thing you can do is send them this book."
--This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Those with dementia or Alzheimer's interact with the environment and perceive reality differently. Wouldn't caregiving be easier if you could get on the same page as your loved one? Judy Cornish, founder of the Dementia & Alzheimer's Wellbeing Network® (DAWN), can help. Dementia with Dignity outlines the DAWN method, which provides the tools you need to keep your loved one with dementia at home for longer and with less stress. These techniques will help you put off the heartache, stress, and financial devastation that come with long-term care facilities and cost-prohibitive medications.
Instead of focusing on dementia-related behaviors, the DAWN method equips families and caregivers with tools for responding to the emotional needs that cause them. Its simple techniques enable caretakers to support the skills their loved ones retain so they can regain a sense of security and wellbeing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A road map for joyful care-giving at home
By John Hacker on March 2, 2019
“This shift in focus changes the caregiving model, from treating symptoms to helping the person—the whole person. We move from understanding dementia as a disease requiring medical and pharmacological treatment…to concentrating our attention on the very individual needs and experiences of the people who have dementia.” The DAWN Method, as summarized in this quote from Dementia with Dignity, p.49, has rocked my world. It has caused me to do a total ‘about face’ in my approach to my mother’s diagnosis. This book changed my own sense of loss and subsequent sadness to a sense of empowerment and agency. Dementia with Dignity provides a road map for how to care for loved ones at home. It has given me hope and joy in caring for my mother as we endeavor to make every day beautiful for her and to help her end well. Thank you, Judy Cornish!
