Présentation de l'éditeur
A Positive Approach For Coping With The Early Stages Of Dementia, Alzheimer’s And Vascular Dementia
Dementia is diagnosed. Has life as we know it now gone forever?
In this quick easy read, Jane Hanson will help you realise that the onset of dementia is a new beginning rather than the final curtain. You will learn how to adapt family life to integrate rather than alienate the sufferer.
Her approach is personal, positive and heart warming - this is not a medical book, nor is a directory on where to find help and grants for dementia – this is a book where you will be given SIMPLE tactics, tips and activities to help navigate the dementia journey. As well as help in learning how to communicate anew with the sufferer, while understanding that the journey itself can be frightening, frustrating and tiring at times for all.
Jane Hanson, a carer of a dementia sufferer for 13 years, now runs a local dementia support group, wrote this book ultimately to show you that life does continue after diagnosis but just on a new course.
Written for anyone whose life is touched by dementia and has to make sense of it.
