Life changes dramatically for the entire family when the decision is made to move a person who has dementia from home to community care. Rachael Wonderlin, a gerontologist, dementia care expert, and popular dementia care blogger, helps caregivers cope with the difficult behaviors, emotions, and anxieties that both they and their loved one may experience. Writing from her own practice and drawing on the latest research in gerontology and dementia, Wonderlin explains the different kinds of dementia, details the wide range of care communities available for people who have dementia, and speaks empathetically to the worry and guilt many families feel. "Do not let anyone make you feel like you have taken the ‘easy way out’ by choosing a dementia care community," she writes. "You are still going to deal with a lot of challenging behaviors, concerns, and questions regarding your loved one’s care." When Someone You Know Is Living in a Dementia Care Community is an accessible guide offering answers to such questions as: · How do I choose a place for my loved one to live?· What can I find out by visiting a candidate memory-care community twice?· What do I do if my loved one asks about going home?· How can I improve the quality of my visits?· What is the best way to handle conflict between residents, or between the resident and staff?· How can I cope with my loved one’s sundowning?· What do I do if my loved one starts a romantic relationship with another resident? An indispensable book for family members and friends of people with dementia, When Someone You Know is Living in a Dementia Care Community touches the heart while explaining how to make a difficult situation better.

"The speaker in these by turns surreal, hagiographic, oneiric, fabular, elegiac poems keeps what Emily Dickinson called 'Esoteric Time.' 'Within' time. In the title poem, a dark berceuse, the hour is 'black bear o'clock,' a spell beyond tell-able time for which not even the 26 letters of the alphabet, evoked by the title, are a guaranteed talisman. 'Cryonics' admonishes a depressed friend, 'caught / in an hourglass neck / of cells not dividing,' to 'revive: / child the father / of the sand.' References to seconds, minutes, hourglasses, sands, clocks, gnomon, dials, and all manner of measuring, counting, and 'telling' time abound, as the speaker, with widdershins pluck, provocatively reverses, transgresses, and teases such limitations to fashion worlds that exempt themselves from any static or linear notion of past, present, future, or place. We shuttle among multitudinous realms: myth, pre-Raphaelite painting, fairy tale, classical music, Europe, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, Jerusalem's Western Wall, and even an imagined future in which a mother might meet an unconceived child and dead wives return and return again. 'If no one asks me [what Time is],' wrote St. Augustine, 'I know; if I wish to explain it to one that asketh, I know not.' By attempting to word that ineffable and manifold 'within time,' Clare conjures a cosmological wunderkammer of a first book, '[k]indred, in a flickering place.'"Lisa Russ Spaar

Is it really Alzheimer's? How to find out and intervene early to maintain the highest quality of life "Most of us will either get Alzheimer's or care for a loved one who has. This action plan can empower you to make a difference."---Mehmet C. Oz, M.D. What would you do if your mother was having memory problems? Alzheimer's is a disease affecting more than five million Americans, with a new diagnosis being made every seventy-two seconds. Millions more are worried or at risk due to mild memory loss or family history. Although experts agree that early diagnosis and treatment are essential, many people with memory loss and their families---and even their doctors---don't know where to turn for authoritative, state-of-the-art advice and answers to all of their questions. Now, combining the insights of a world-class physician and an award-winning social worker, this groundbreaking book tells you everything you need to know, including: · The best tests to determine if this is---or is not---Alzheimer's disease · The most (and least) effective medical treatments · Coping with behavioral and emotional changes through the early and middle stages · Gaining access to the latest clinical trials · Understanding the future of Alzheimer's Clear, compassionate, and empowering, The Alzheimer's Action Plan is the first book that anyone dealing with mild memory loss or early Alzheimer's must-read in order to preserve the highest possible quality of life for as long as possible.
