This book is different from most books about dementia because it approaches the journey the family is on from the caregiver’s point of view.

In this book, you’ll learn:

  • What dementia is and what to expect next
  • Things to think about soon after a family member is diagnosed with dementia, such as how to make a house safe
  • Ways to interact successfully with a family member with dementia so life is calmer
  • How to manage some of the challenging behaviors of later dementia, such as refusing to bathe
  • When you should ask for help for yourself, the family caregiver

Written in a conversational style with pictures and stories based on events that actually happened to other family caregivers, this book offers caregivers tips that make caring for their family member with dementia easier for them and for their family member with dementia.

Listen to Dr. Hodges talk about “Help is Here” and how caregivers can cope:
