Synopsis

Of the estimated 5 million Americans who have Alzheimer's Disease, more than 7 in 10 live at home, primarily cared for by family and friends. Alzheimer's Disease: The Dignity Within: A Handbook for Caregivers, Family, and Friends was written in a workbook format aimed at increasing the caregiver's knowledge of the disease. As a result, these caregivers - whether family members, friends or health professionals - will be better equipped to nurture the dignity within people living with Alzheimer's and feel more confident doing so. The book is a tool for caregivers that will impact not only the way they relate to persons with Alzheimer's Disease, but other relationships as well.It contains information on how to take care of a person with Alzheimer's Disease by mapping out each stage of the disease and showing what can be done from a caregiving standpoint at these various stages. In addition, the book discusses how important it is for caregivers to take care of themselves. It educates readers with easy-to-understand charts and sketches on what physically happens to the brain during the progression of Alzheimer's. Its five sections focus on the nature of Alzheimer's Disease and on being a caregiver, covering topics such as tips for caregivers; challenges and solutions; changes in the brain that are responsible for the problems associated with the disease; and much, much more.However, the most important tenet of the book is that we can better care for people with Alzheimer's by recognising and nurturing the essence within a person living through the different stages of the disease. Both caregivers and people affected by Alzheimer's can live with a sense of dignity, importance, and self-esteem.
