This book is the only fact-based, hands-on, caregiving guide written by an in-home Alzheimer's caregiver. This unique book helps you work through the personal issues surrounding caregiving, including: how to recognize and manage stress; how to deal with difficult behaviors; how to find outside help when necessary; and how to nurture your own well-being. Opening a gateway for the future of caregiving, it describes an approach in which support and care become an organic, constantly adapting process, not a series of actions, but an art and a science of relationship, which grows from needs and issues of the family gathering around its afflicted member. This book shows how caregiving itself brings growth, a process in which everyone can gain and in which disease is not a villain, but a simple fact to be accommodated and, in the end, transcended as the family pursues a better quality of life for all.
