I Care, A Handbook for Care Partners of People with Dementia by Jennifer Brush and Kerry Mills
This award winning book will both inspire and educate care partners of people with Alzheimer’s disease to make the most of each day! The book covers minimizing the care partner’s fears, frustrations, and stress; managing changes in communication, memory loss and behavior using best care techniques; making the home safe and supportive; understanding changes in brain function; addressing financial and legal issues and much more. Shifting the perspective from caregiving to care partnering, it offers an important reminder that there remain many capabilities that need to be recognized, maximized, and respected in persons with dementias. Rather than being limited, the care focus is expanded to enabling and empowering these individuals to function at their remaining best. It is a very accessible, understandable combination of scientific background, personal stories and practical strategies that simplify the daunting task of managing life while being the best caregiver possible.
