Book to help families cope with Alzheimer's
Published by Home Instead Senior Care, Confidence to Care is a book packed full of practical advice and helpful techniques to bring much needed help to those caring for someone living with Alzheimer's disease or another dementia.
The book combines personal stories with practical techniques and is drawn from decades of caring experience from family carers, professional carers and internationally recognised experts in ageing and dementia.
It is an essential handbook to becoming more confident in understanding, managing and helping alleviate dementia-related behavioural symptoms.
Confidence to Care focuses on memory and behaviour symptoms that family carers often need help with, including a loved one's resistance to everyday personal care activities. Each chapter begins with a real life example and goes on to explain why the behaviour happens, suggestions for care approaches and prevention tips. The book even gives 'conversation starters' - giving help with what to say in different situations.
Confidence to Care (UK Edition) is available through Amazon. All profits from the book will be donated to the newly set up Home Instead Bring Joy Foundation and designated for donating to organisations and causes that support the elderly.
