This easy-to-read book is NOT an attempt to educate you on all the medical aspects of dementia, although they are touched on gently. Instead, it speaks to you from the heart and a personal standpoint. It lets you know some of what to expect and the emotions and thoughts you might have in response to your loved one's deteriorating condition.
Most of all, this book was written to share a journey upon which I'm traveling with one of my loved ones, from the first recognition that something was awry to the hard decisions that needed to be made to ensure her safety and proper care.
A must read for the Baby Boomer who is now faced with caring for aging and increasingly frail parents.
Caregiving for an aging parent, especially one with Alzheimer's, may be seen as both a burden and a blessing. Read about how you can manage this difficult and heart-wrenching task with grace.
This is a follow-up book to my introductory one on this subject, Understanding Dementia and Caregiving From A to Z. It delves deeper into the subject matter and offers a fresh perspective on how to view the circumstances of your family. The words of comforting support offer concrete ways to best help you and your loved ones travel the roads of caregiving for a family member or friend with Alzheimer's.

Are you caregiving for a friend or family member, or are you the executor of an estate? If so, in order to complete various tasks and take care of business, you need access to and knowledge about the details of a person's life.

Since life is unpredictable, you don't want to hesitate on completing this important task. This book provides you with an easy-to-follow format that outlines all the information that would be necessary for another person to know in order to decipher your life. All you need to do is fill in the blanks!
Times are tough these days, so most everyone can use a little light in their life. Smiling, both to yourself and at the world, is a simple and inexpensive way to experience a change in perspective so that light can stream into your life once again. With an adjusted stance at how the world is viewed, pro-active thoughts and subsequent positive changes can be experienced.
52 Reasons To Smile is a more in-depth look at the power of smiling. A smile is a person's calling card, and it lets others know whether they should come (or remain) close or turn away. The reason for that is because a smile creates a welcoming aura and emanates warmth, while, conversely, a frown conveys a negative-Nelly attitude. Naturally, others like to be around those who emit feelings of positivity. It's certainly more fun and can also help them to feel better about their own situation. Readers are offered one idea for every week of the year. If the prescription is followed, at the end of the year, you will experience a change in perspective, be filled with good cheer and have spread this good cheer to others.
