According to recent estimates, more than five million Americans suffer from dementia or Alzheimer's disease, a number predicted to grow as Baby Boomers continue to age. Although staggering, these statistics only tell half of the story. As caregivers are thrust into situations they never could have predicted, the emotional, physical, and financial strains are enormous and cannot be overestimated. As the number of dementia patients continues to increase, so will the number of caregivers searching for answers and advice. This book offers a positive and innovative approach to dementia care that focuses on the caregiver's power to create an atmosphere of joy and peace for both the patient and themselves, breathing fresh air into the topic of dementia care.
