Overview

Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia can be devastating--not just for the patients themselves, but for family and friends who must watch a loved one deteriorate. Drawing on her deep compassion for caregivers and more than 25 years of experience as a physician, Dr. Gail Gazelle provides healing and uplifting counsel and advice for those caring for a loved one with dementia.

In this book, you'll find practical tips for taking care of yourself--and making sure you have the support to meet your own basic needs as well as those of your loved one. You'll also find a wealth of positive affirmations and advice to help you keep a healthy, sane, and positive outlook during this difficult time. A former Alzheimer's caregiver herself, Dr. Gazelle understands the unique challenges of caring for those with dementia first-hand--and her advice is crucial for caregivers of all levels of experience.
