In this final volume, you'll learn how to make some difficult transitions. You'll learn how to adapt social activities to accommodate your loved one's increasing disability and isolation. You'll also learn how to recognize when the time has come to consider moving your loved one to a care facility (and how to evaluate these facilities). You'll learn how the disease affects a person's spirituality, and you'll gain insights from others who have gone through the process of grieving the loss of a loved one for whom they have provided years of care.
Volume 5 covers:
For many families, Alzheimer's means a gradually diminishing quality of life for both the sufferer and caregivers. All too often, the disease has led to isolation - and even a certain social stigma. It can impose psychological and emotional burdens just as heavy as the physical one.
- Social Activities
- Spiritual Issues
- Care Facilities
The Family Guide to Alzheimer's Disease(TM) was created to help families understand what to expect; deal effectively with the challenge of this disease; help their loved ones meet each day more successfully; and enhance the quality of life for all involved.
