Home Instead Wetherby & North Leeds has donated copies of Home Instead Press’s popular “Confidence to Care” publication to several libraries in the local area including Chapel Allerton, Chapeltown, Oakwood, Wetherby, Boston Spa and Scholes.


The book which is a resource for Family Carers providing Alzheimer’s Disease or Other Dementias Care at Home 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.


Copies are also available to loan through the Wetherby & North Leeds office, contact: 01937 220510.
