Good Explanation

This book was a lot smaller than I expected, but gave me several good ideas and good information when dealing with someone with Dementia. The writer has much care and compassion working with Dementia patients, so it’s a good audiobook.

Highly Recommended!

Institutional care is just as tiring if I am wanting to make sure my mom is getting the right care in there.

Good and Important Information

This book does a most effective job of addressing the person most affected, from a practical, experience based and respectful perspective. The book provides so much of value and useful ways of bringing the most to the life that remains and ways to compensate for what does not.

A Must-Have Book For All

Although this is written for a care taker, it gave me loads of information about what I should be doing to prepare myself for my decline while I have some brain cells left.

Very Handy Guide

Absolutely imperative audiobook for anyone caring at any level for someone with dementia. Whether you are a primary or secondary caregiver, the insight in this book will change your perspective of someone suffering from dementia.

Extremely Helpful

The book was very comforting in that it focused on what a person with a brain that no longer functions as well as it did when younger can still do and think and feel, not on what time has stolen from him or her. It did wonders for my stress level. I calmed down and got more optimistic about the future.

Great Examples

I liked the examples and the process for providing care with kindness and detail into planning each individual's program for care. This is a great book for families starting the process of caring for an elderly relative with dementia issues.

Very Good Guide

Very enlightening, thorough explanation of each phase and what to expect. Full of ways to approach each phase with real examples. I am finding they do work. It is all about accepting the person as they are now and how to help both the caregiver and the individual with dementia embrace life.
