THE OVERVIEW My husband, Bob, and I cared for the well-minded elderly, terminally ill and people with dementia, such as Alzheimer's patients, in our own home from 1989 through August of 2006. We have written our books out of our own personal experiences while performing that care and comforting their families. “Caregiving Tips A-Z, Alzheimer's & Other Dementias” takes the family caregiver through every hands-on procedure necessary to care for their loved one at home. This complete caregiving manual helps the family effectively communicate with all medical professionals to obtain maximum results for their loved one. It addresses every perplexing situation the family caregiver might find herself in and presents numerous ideas for which to solve them easily. If you have an elderly loved one who can no longer reside safely in his own home and you want to bring him home to live with you, this book will teach you how to provide quality care, regardless of your education level. You will find that you are not alone in dealing with seemingly overwhelming emotions and fear of the unknown such as guilt, fear, denial and anger. “Caregiving Tips A-Z, Alzheimer's & Other Dementias” gives you clever tips (653 in all) and realistic suggestions (638) on managing challenging behavioral problems, grooming, food issues, how to get the keys away from your loved one peacefully and much more. This book will also help medical professionals, hospice and home health agencies by giving them a thorough and fresh resource to refer to their patients and families. “Baby boomers”, “the sandwich generation”- the media and American public labels this group in many ways, but the facts speaks for themselves concerning the increasing population of adult children of the elderly. Many of them are now electing to provide care in their own homes in lieu of a more institutional setting for their loved ones' final days due to the growing cost of health care. If we take into consideration the fact that people are living longer (according to the Census Bureau, the average age at death in the year 2000 was 85), we can see that there are millions of Americans between the ages of 38 and 67 who out of necessity make decisions about arranging care for their elderly parents or grandparents. One of the main reasons that families do not care for their ailing loved ones at home is because they are under the misconception that they must have a doctor or nurses degree in order to give care to someone who is dying. They do not feel qualified. In writing “Caregiving Tips A-Z, Alzheimer's & Other Dementias” we hope to give the everyday caregiver the confidence she lacks, dispel these myths and return to the days, not so long ago, when all people cared for their own elderly loved ones in their home.
