Do you suspect that a loved one may have dementia? Then this book will give you and your family the information you need to begin to understand what is happening. It will give you a brief review of the kinds of dementia and a quick explanation and example of each stage of dementia so you will know what to expect as dementia progresses.
It also helps you understand that the person with dementia cannot control or prevent behaviors caused by damage to the brain. People with dementia do not want to act inappropriately, they are dismayed by their losses of ability, and they are truly doing the best they can.
I wasn't prepared when my mother first began her mental decline. A simple introduction like this would have been helpful, so I have written it hoping that it may be of help to others.
If you want a concise and simple guide to this devastating type of brain damage, this book will provide it. If you need detailed and comprehensive information, you will do well to select another resource.
