The Busy Caregiver's Guide to Advanced Alzheimer Disease

The only guide to caring for those with advanced Alzheimer disease.

Caring for someone living with advanced Alzheimer disease is a challenge. It can make you feel like you're on a hamster wheel—running in circles, trying the same things over and over with no effect on your loved one. You may also find it difficult to connect with your loved one and to understand what those living with Alzheimer disease are going through. In The Busy Caregiver's Guide to Advanced Alzheimer Disease, Dr. Jennifer Stelter, a psychologist working in memory care, shares a new model designed to help caregivers understand, cope with, and handle some of the most challenging behaviors associated with the disease while encouraging and reinforcing independence and quality of life for their loved ones. Her Dementia Connection Model, which is based on current scientific research, will aid you in forging a positive bond with your loved one with less frustration. Win-win!

Follow along, step by step, as Dr. Stelter outlines the three main elements of the Dementia Connection Model and learn how to put these elements into practice to help with

• communication problems
• eating difficulties
• mobility concerns
• memory deficits
• behavioral issues
• toileting trouble
• and other common complications of Alzheimer disease.

The evidenced-based, practical interventions and strategies in The Busy Caregiver's Guide will help you stay emotionally, mentally, and physically involved in your loved one's life. Special dedicated worksheets help you practice the skills and keep track of what is working. You'll also read stories about other caregivers who face the same struggles.

"Bringing together three theories of dementia connection, Dr. Stelter creates a unique care model for persons with dementia."

- Andrea Nelson, RN, MSN, Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center

"A great, easy-to-read book. By providing practical anecdotes, Dr. Stelter makes what can be very academic theories available to the layperson. I absolutely love the idea of laying the content out as a workbook, allowing families to apply the exercises to real-life situations."
