Contented Dementia PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Contented Dementia free pdf In the UK alone, over 700,000 people are afflicted with Dementia or Alzheimer's Disease, and that is a conservative estimate. Across Europe the figure rises to five million, and eighteen million worldwide. Considering that, for every person who suffers from some form of the illness, there are usually at least three family members - mainly spouses and offspring - and five professionals, shouldering the burden of care, that leaves a lot of people desperate for effective help with managing what remains a little understood illness. At present, there is no cure, nor is there one in sight, and most people's experiences are difficult, confusing and, with many families becoming hugely disrupted, distressing, as, historically, there has been no reliable method of care widely employed. What Remind Me, Again offers are solutions - methods, approved by the Royal College of Nursing and the Alzheimer's Society and pioneered by SPECAL (Specialized Early Care for Alzheimer's) , that are the result of hands-on experience and which are, above all, practical and positive.So much of the information out there is weighed down with medical jargon that intimidates and is often deliberately obstructive and patronizingly dismissive, but this is an authentic self-help book, in the tuest sense of the term, that can be used by anyone. It is approachable, user-friendly and tried and tested.
