Caring for someone with dementia means devotedly and patiently doing a hundred little things each day. Many care providers have little or no training in meeting the challenges of dementia, however. They need the guidance in this book, which shows them not only how to overcome the obstacles they face but also how to cultivate more meaningful relationships with loved ones who have dementia and memory loss. Laura Wayman's program of care emphasizes communication, affirmative response, and empowerment--transforming the caregiving process from a burden into a fulfilling journey. Real stories illustrate the principles of this loving approach, giving readers the tools they need to connect with people who have dementia. In addition to offering valuable lessons on how to provide the best possible care, Wayman urges caregivers not to neglect themselves: If you take care of yourself, you will have more physical and mental energy to care for your loved one. The practical tips in this book will help you balance your own needs with those of your loved one so both of you have a more positive experience. Wayman's innovative approach nurtures relationships between persons who have dementia and family members, friends, and professionals who are caring for or working or living with them. A Loving Approach to Dementia Care is a special guide, filled with respect, calmness, creativity--and love.
