Helping Families Cope: A guide for those caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's Disease or Other Dementias

Featured in this booklet is the Home Instead Senior Care approach to Alzheimer's or other dementias care.  The approach focuses on personalizing the care experience, keeping your loved one engaged in life, and reducing behavior that is a sign of unhappiness in your loved one.  There is also a section about you, the caregiver, which provides realistic ideas about how you can take good care of yourself.  Finally, additional information and resources will offer other avenues of support.
