Wisdom for caregivers.

I can’t even begin to count the number of acquaintances where someone is suddenly diagnosed with dementia. It seems to have taken on plague proportions as it sweeps through my peers, seemingly out of nowhere. This book is timely, for the afflicted and the care giver.
One thing that sticks out to me is the advice that care givers need to put on their own oxygen masks first!
A wise forewarning. If the caregiver crumbles, their loved one is unable to be supported.
So many sensible talking points to help the dementia sufferer continue to feel fulfilled and worthwhile
An excellent read that helps one to look for positive situations to channel responses to this disease.

Many thanks to the author and publisher.

This book was definitely insightful and I got something from reading. However, I found some of the technical language a little jarring and overwhelming - particularly as reading about a topic so very raw, personal, and close to my heart.
I found it a bit hard going.

A fantastic book that opens the door to senior education and the disease that is dementia. As a nurse that works side by side everyday with members of our community who suffer from dementia, I found this extremely educational and impressed that the author was able to touch on so many important aspects.

As some one who has dealt with a parent with dementia I could relate so much to this and the great resources and advice it provides to caregivers
