Great for looking up what to expect from my MIL's dementia
Learning to Speak Alzheimer's: A Groundbreaking Approach for Everyone Dealing with the Disease
Kimberly Griffith @ 2009-09-15
I bought this book 8 months ago when my MIL set her kitchen on fire and we knew then that she could no longer live at home alone safely. Since my husband works and her daughter works that left me to care for her day to day. I have always been one to learn as much about a subject or disease as possible to better understand the problem and learn how to deal with it head on. This book is a wonderful manual for those like me that need to know a lot quickly about a difficult to understand subject. This book provides a lot of information about many topics that affect the person with AD such as behavior of all kinds, judgement problems, loss of time and memories, dressing and hygiene. It addresses problems you may have in how your home is set up and how to make it easier and safer for the person with AD with some adjustments. It glosses over things such as language problems, repeating things, time orientation and other daily problems an AD person faces. It shows charts about what symptoms to look for at which stages of the disease they are in. It is a great beginning book for someone trying to learn about the disease.
I purchased this book along with 2 other books that I also found extremely helpful in trying to know what to expect and what it would look or sound like. "The 36 Hour Day " and "Learning to Speak Alzheimers" A wonderful trio for the caregiver and the family.
