When Amos's mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, the chemical engineer immersed herself in education about the condition and became certified in essential ALZ@Plus dementia training. Here she puts forth her experiences, observations, and research to demonstrate the "Caregiving Principle," focusing on the needs not only of patients but also of caregivers. Checklists for cognitive abilities, esteem issues, and driving assessments, among others, further help to assist in developing support circles and recognizing stress levels in loved ones.
VERDICT A useful, step-by-step guide for anyone new to caring for those with Alzheimer's.
