Connecting the Dots: Breakthroughs in Communication as Alzheimer's Advances
Judith L. London, Ph.D.
When you reach out to connect with your loved one, your loved one will connect back with you.
In this book, you will see how to reactivate a connection and communicate as Alzheimer's advances.
You will read compelling stories about the meaningful comments of people with advancing Alzheimer's and discover the tools you can use to connect and communicate, too, mind-to-mind, heart-to-heart.
BELIEVE THAT IT IS POSSIBLE !
Here are a few of the over 30 tools in the book that you can use:
Smile - Be Kind - Be Respectful - Reassure - Agree
Treat your loved one as a precious person with dementia, not a demented person.
Sounds simple but try it.
Message to Caregivers from Judy:
- You have lots of company: there are 15 million unpaid relatives who take care of their relative with Alzheimer's.
- You are the unsung heroes in this disease. Treat yourself kindly, too.
