Navigating the Alzheimer's Journey by Carol Bowlby Sifton

Book Description

This practical, easy-to-read book is a guide for caregivers of people with Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD). The author describes common examples of challenges in day-to-day care, provides guidelines for ways to respond to these challenges, and emphasizes making use of the continuing abilities of people with ADRD. The author explains a problem solving approach to enable caregivers to address unique situations. The suggested care techniques are activity-focused, making them both practical and applicable. The book also suggests ways in which the caregivers can take care of themselves and reduce caregiver stress. The last chapter provides guidance for the difficult process of planning future care, supporting the transition to long-term care, and suggestions for maintaining the caregiver relationship (e.g., guidelines for visiting in long-term care). Each chapter includes a summary of the key points. Large type makes the book pages easier to read and case examples add a personal tone. A busy caregiver can quickly find explanations and solutions to the issue of the moment.
