Alzheimer’s, Dementia, & Memory Loss: A Helpful Guide for Caregivers
by Angela G. Gentile with Brent Hoag (2022, 210 pages)
Does someone you know and care about have Alzheimer’s or memory issues?
Do you feel overwhelmed and alone in your experience – in your role as a caregiver for someone with dementia?
Alzheimer’s, Dementia, & Memory Loss: A Helpful Guide for Caregivers (2022) will provide you with the tools and support you need to successfully cope with and navigate this difficult journey. This “first aid kit” will help you address many concerns and questions you may have. Topics include getting a diagnosis, asking for help, humour as a coping strategy, caregiver stress, self-care, coping with difficult behaviour, legal and financial issues, delirium, drinking, driving, and much more! Dubbed the “quintessential survival guide for caregivers,” this book is a revised and expanded version of Gentile’s book, Caring for a Husband with Dementia: The Ultimate Survival Guide (2015).
