Caring Moments is a book which will satisfy many of your questions on dementia and Alzheimer’s, while at the same time help you discover how other families have learned to cope with the ongoing demands.
Carers will benefit from the comprehensive information and the practical and helpful suggestions.
Written by people who have cared for their family and friends, this book is an extensive collection of information, hints, and true life stories and poems. It shares invaluable information and insights into the disease, but perhaps more importantly it also contains irony, humour, love and practical advice. All of which are keys to providing good caregiving for a loved one, while also maintaining a positive and healthy attitude, and a sense of worth.
The book includes a chapter on sensory gardens and their benefits.
Designed to be a companion through all stages of dementia, Caring Moment's easy to read style is as suitable for teenagers as it is for adults. While still offering the confidence of knowing that the entire contents comes with the complete endorsement of Alzheimer’s Australia.
“This is a book that not only educates and entertains but also offers instant answers and support from those who have been in the same situation. If you’re looking for one handbook to help you through every stage of this disease ‘Caring Moments’ could well be it.” Glenn Rees, former CEO Alzheimer’s Australia.
“It is essential that we make every effort to ensure that people with dementia have the best possible quality of life. ‘Caring Moments’ is a resource that can support the caring journey.” The Hon John Watkins, CEO Alzheimer’s Australia NSW.
