Contented Dementia Excerpt :

Dementia is a little understood and currently incurable illness, but much can be done to maximise the quality of life for people with the condition. Contented Dementia - by clinical psychologist and bestselling author Oliver James - outlines a groundbreaking and practical method for managing dementia that will allow both sufferer and carer to maintain the highest possible quality of life, throughout every stage of the illness. A person with dementia will experience random and increasingly frequent memory blanks relating to recent events. Feelings, however, remain intact, as do memories of past events and both can be used in a special way to substitute for more recent information that has been lost. The SPECAL method (Specialized Early Care for Alzheimer's) outlined in this book works by creating links between past memories and the routine activities of daily life in the present. Drawing on real-life examples and user-friendly tried-and-tested methods, Contented Dementia provides essential information and guidance for carers, relatives and professionals.

When Someone You Know Has Dementia Excerpt :

Across the world, almost 50 million people have dementia. Hundreds of millions of people are affected by the dementia of parents, partners, siblings, or friends. And while many countries are learning to cope with aging populations, dementia is becoming ever more of a challenge for many societies and individuals. Huge numbers of people who are diagnosed, or who are dealing with the diagnosis of a loved one, feel alone. When Someone You Know Has Dementia aims to fill this gap, providing practical information and support for people living with, or caring for someone with, dementia. It also provides insight into what is happening when a person has dementia as well as describing what dementia is, how you can deal with it, and what you can do to keep dementia at bay.

Most important, the book takes an honest approach, emphasizing the needs of the person who has Alzheimer’s or dementia while also giving attention to the needs of caregivers and families. The book is packed with practical tips for providing what people with Alzheimer’s or dementia want and need and includes many quotes from people living with or affected by dementia. With clear and sensible information about recognizing symptoms, getting help, managing financially, staying at home, getting treatment, being a caregiver, and staying positive, this guide will help people with dementia and their families make sure that they can stay well and happy as long as possible.

Research-based advice for people who care for someone with dementia Nearly half of U.S. citizens over the age of 85 are suffering from some kind of dementia and require care.

The book is for caregivers, family members, friends, neighbors as well as educators and professionals—anyone touched by the epidemic of dementia. Dr. Boss helps caregivers find hope in "ambiguous loss"—having a loved one both here and not here, physically present but psychologically absent. Outlines seven guidelines to stay resilient while caring for someone who has dementia Discusses the meaning of relationships with individuals who are cognitively impaired and no longer as they used to be Offers approaches to understand and cope with the emotional strain of care-giving Boss's book builds on research and clinical experience, yet the material is presented as a conversation. She shows you a way to embrace rather than resist the ambiguity in your relationship with someone who has dementia.

Creating Moments of Joy Along the Alzheimer s Journey Excerpt :

The beloved best seller has been revised and expanded for the fifth edition. Jolene Brackey has a vision: that we will soon look beyond the challenges of Alzheimer's disease to focus more of our energies on creating moments of joy. When people have short-term memory loss, their lives are made up of moments. We are not able to create perfectly wonderful days for people with dementia or Alzheimer's, but we can create perfectly wonderful moments, moments that put a smile on their faces and a twinkle in their eyes. Five minutes later, they will not remember what we did or said, but the feeling that we left them with will linger. The new edition of Creating Moments of Joy is filled with more practical advice sprinkled with hope, encouragement, new stories, and generous helpings of humor. In this volume, Brackey reveals that our greatest teacher is having cared for and loved someone with Alzheimer's and that often what we have most to learn about is ourselves.
