Dealing Daily with Dementia

 

DEALING DAILY WITH DEMENTIA - 2000+ Practical Hints and Strategies for Carers
By Angela Caughey with a Foreword by Dr Chris Perkins FRANZCP

About the book

Many books have been written about dementia, usually dealing with the symptoms and the medical side of the condition. But here is a thoroughly practical book for carers and families, written by someone with first-hand experience of caring for someone with dementia over many years.

Drawing on real-life situations, this book brings together a wealth of information not easily found elsewhere. It provides solutions to a vast range of situations the carer is likely to encounter – from organising legal and financial affairs, to ways of coping with the symptoms of dementia, such as aggression, hallucinations, incontinence and decreasing mental powers. It also contains thousands of hints for dealing with dementia on a daily basis, including adapting the home environment; showering, dressing, eating and drinking; keeping the mind stimulated; and communicating well with family, friends and professionals, as well as with each other.

About the author

Angela Caughey has first-hand experience of dementia. She cared for her husband for more than 12 years, after he was diagnosed with Lewy body dementia (LBD), a type of dementia with Parkinson-like symptoms. Dealing Daily with Dementia shares this experience – and the experiences of many others caring for relatives with dementia – and offers a wealth of invaluable and practical information not readily found elsewhere.
