Reviews - What do customers think about Navigating the Alzheimer's Journey: A Compass for Care-Giving?

A complete, definitive, and thoroughly "user friendly" guide  Mar 9, 2005
Carol Bowlby Sifton is the founder and editor of the journal "Alzheimer's Care Quarterly". In Navigating The Alzheimer's Journey: A Compass For Caregiving, she draws upon her many years of personal experience and professional expertise to provide caregivers for Alzheimer victims a complete, definitive, and thoroughly "user friendly" guide to caring for men and women in all degrees of Alzheimer's progressive deterioration. Readers will be expertly provided with information on how Alzheimer's disease and similar dementias affect a loved one; how to best communicate and interact with an Alzheimer's sufferer; how to manage activities of daily care; why challenging behaviors occur and how to respond to them; how to arrange the physical environment to best support everyday functioning; how to capitalize on remaining abilities; when and how to get help; and what plans to make for future care needs. If you have someone you love that is suffering from Alzheimer's, or caring for someone who is, and are carrying a personal responsibility for your own family member's struggle with Alzheimer, then give a careful reading to Carol Sifton's Navigating The Alzheimer's Journey -- it can improve the quality of the care you provide, while saving you from unnecessary physical and mental stress, and avoiding emotional burnout.
Excellent Resource!  Dec 17, 2004
Wow-Carol has written a fantastic resource, very comprehensive, on caregiving and Alzheimer's Disease! I wish it had been available for me when I was navigating the complicated maze of eldercare for my parents-both with the beginning of Alzheimer's, but I didn't know it yet. Knowledge is power-don't get caught unprepared. This book can save you a lot of time, money and a fortune in Kleenex. If you have aging loved ones who are having memory problems, or any odd behaviors that you find yourself questioning--here's your roadmap and compass!

Jacqueline Marcell, Author, `Elder Rage' and Host of the `Coping with Caregiving' radio program.
