I really liked that it takes a holistic approach to the treatment of a person with Alzheimer's. A great emphasis is placed on treating the patient with dignity and respect.
There are many ideas of ways to communicate with loved one with AD. Wonderful ideas on activities that keeps them engaged in life instead of abandoning them to the intimidating world in which they live.
I have read many books and tried many concepts to help my loved one. I've tried some of the ideas in the book and they work marvelously.
My loved one is on only two medications...one for thyroid and one for blood pressure. I hope that with the help of this book and patience, I can be a better caregiver to my loved one.
I learned from a neurologist that Ronald Reagan had alzheimers the whole time he served as the President of the United States. How did HE communicate and run our country? With a lot of help and perserverence, that's how!
It's not impossible to live ones life if you have alzheimers and your loved ones DO KNOW who you are(even if they may call you the wrong name or say that you're their brother instead of son). There are ways to help people with dementia remember and also ways to help new brain cells grow........these are done through EMOTIONS & these have been researched and this is taught in this book.
This takes understanding and work to help a loved one with dementia, but, aren't they worth it?!!! The glass is always 1/2 full with me and I will never give up!!!
the confusion encountered when placing the order. The book I requested was listed as "I'm Still Here: A New Philosophy of Alzheimer's Care", but when I got to checkout the title was represented as "I'm Still Here: Creating a Better Life for a Loved One Living with Alzheimer's", both authored by John Zeisel. I chose to assume it was a newer edition of the same book
and continued with my purchase, since I had heard John speak of his work in the past and found his presentation
worth passing on to others dealing with an Alzheimer situation.
