Description
 

Providing dementia care is profoundly stressful for families and caregivers. People with dementia or Alzheimers experience emotional distress, which leads to behavioral complications and the need for institutional care. However, if families and caregivers are able to identify the emotional needs caused by dementia and understand which skills are lost and which remain, they can lower the behavioral complications and their own stress.

As the founder of the Dementia & Alzheimers Wellbeing Network(R) (DAWN), Judy Cornish approaches dementia care with clear and empathetic methods that not only improve the lives of the individuals with dementia but also of those caring for them.

Dementia and Alzheimers are very personal and individual experiences-they vary from person to person. However, Cornish has identified a pattern in the abilities and disabilities of people living with dementia. Based on her findings, Cornish was able to develop methods for caregivers to ease emotional distress, which can quickly and safely resolve behavioral complications.

Though people with dementia lose a sense of self, they are still the same person you always loved. Judy Cornish understands this. The Dementia Handbook: How to Provide Dementia Care at Home is the supportive guide youve been looking for as you walk alongside your loved one on this difficult-but potentially rewarding-new path.
