Surviving Alzheimer’s: Practical tips and soul-saving wisdom for caregivers by Paula Spencer Scott

What every family member of a loved one with dementia needs to know: How to help without sacrificing YOU. In Surviving Alzheimer’s you’ll find: * The best, most current thinking on how to enhance quality of life and safety while minimizing stress on everyone involved. * The “Why This, Try This” approach to understanding what’s behind odd, frustrating behaviors — and what you can do about them. * How to defuse resentment, guilt, anger, and family friction. * Lifesaving insights from a team of top dementia-care experts from geriatrics, psychiatry, social work, law, dementia therapy, and caregiver advocacy. * Stories and ideas from real families. * A fast, scannable format, unlike any other Alzheimer’s guide, perfect for the short-on-time caregiver.
