Help for Caregivers May 31, 2001
Cuando el Día tiene 36 horas (The 36 Hour Day) by Nancy L. Mace and Peter V. Rabins is an excellent resouce for those trying to cope with tasks of caregiving to people suffering from Alzheimer's Disease. Alzheimer's Disease robs hundreds of thousands of people of their ability to remember and process new information. While this disease directly affects individuals, it indirectly affects family members, caregivers, friends, co-workers who are left with the seemingly impossible task of providing support, care, and help to these individuals. Worse still, is the countless hours of waiting and vigilance. Currently, there is no cure for Alzheimer's Disease. Family members and caregivers suffer knowing that fact and that they are unable to stop its progression. This book provides very useful, practical helps to cope with this type of impotence as well as strategies for dealing with the other numerous aspects of this disease, such as all the financial, legal, medical, psychological and emotional matters that are sure to affect the caregivers much more than the person suffering from this disese. No one knows better than the person who has experienced the affects of Alzheimer's that it is more important to care for oneself if one is going to be an effective caregiver. This wonderful book is the perfect guide to understand how to be effective doing both.
