Overview

Managing Alzheimer’s and Dementia Behaviors

The primary purpose of this book titled, “Managing Alzheimer’s and Dementia Behavior” is to assist both “Healthcare Professionals” and “Family Caregivers” alike in providing the best care possible to those afflicted with Alzheimer’s Disease or dementia of any kind.

No less important, however, is another objective; for the information contained within these pages to be a catalyst in creating a better understanding between professional caregivers and the family members of the patients who they are caring for. Communication between these two factions is paramount.

It is our hope that this booklet will be read individually or in groups, discussed openly and, after putting some of the tips now learned into practice, discussed again. Always remember, each patient is unique, but at the same time, the disease can often be manageable with the use of common sense, diligence and, most importantly, with love.

This book is an absolute MUST READ if you care for anyone with Alzheimer's or Dementia! It is easily written and very easy to read. There is information in here that, although I am the sole caretaker of my in-laws and thought I knew it all, is invaluable to me! I am very glad that I had the opportunity to come across this book and read it. Do yourself a favor if you are a caretaker and get this book, you will not be disappointed!
