Finding the Light in Dementia: A Guide for Families, Friends and Caregivers
Dr Jane M Mullins
From Dementia to Rementia
This innovative book sets out practical guidance for people with dementia, their families and carers on reducing the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Applying a ‘rementia’ based approach to dementia care, Jackie Pool shows how therapeutic cognitive rehabilitation techniques can be used to reduce symptoms of dementia and ultimately improve quality of life for people living with dementia.
Covering topics such as nutrition, stress, communication, memory and sleep, it provides all the tools and information necessary to build a personalised and flexible self-care plan which will improve and sustain quality of life. By clearing away the myths and stigma surrounding dementia, this book creates room for cooperation, creativity and hope.
