Having a family member with dementia is extremely stressful and presents unique caregiving challenges. Coping with Dementia is designed to help families of individuals with dementia understand what is happening and transition from primary caregivers to advocates.
Written by Rosemary De Cuir, who spent years working in senior services and as a family advocate, the book provides practical information to help families manage. Coping with Dementia begins with an explanation of dementia and a description of the warning signs. Subsequent chapters include tips for effectively communicating with a loved suffering from dementia, dealing with siblings and spouses, making your house safe, and finding support groups and community resources.
The book also provides information on services available for individuals with dementia, including mental health programs, home-based services, and respite and adult-day care services. Finally, several chapters are devoted to choosing the right facility for your loved one and how to move your family member into it.
Written in an easy-to-understand style, Coping with Dementia will be a valuable resource for anyone with a family member suffering from dementia.
