Are you caring for someone who has dementia? If not, chances are you know someone who is. Caring for a loved one with dementia can be overwhelming, and many caregivers become frustrated when trying to communicate and connect with that person. In A Loving Approach to Dementia Care you will find tried and true methods for developing a care plan that fits your dementia care journey. Please watch this video to find out exactly why I wrote this book.
Few care providers are trained to meet the challenges of dementia. They need guidance to overcome caregiving obstacles and cultivate more meaningful relationships with loved ones who have dementia and memory loss. With respect, calmness, creativity, and love, I hope to help all caregivers do just that.
