Publisher's Summary

Caring for someone with dementia means devotedly and patiently doing a hundred little things each day. Few care providers are trained to meet the challenges of dementia, however - and that is where A Loving Approach to Dementia Care can help. The book offers practical, compassionate advice on overcoming caregiving obstacles and maintaining meaningful relationships with loved ones who have dementia and memory loss. 

Laura Wayman's program of care emphasizes communication, affirmative response, and empowerment - transforming the caregiving process from a burden into a fulfilling journey. Her true stories of caregiving illustrate the principles of this loving approach, giving listeners essential tools for connecting with people who have dementia. A practitioner whose strategies have seen great success in thousands of individual homes and facilities across the country, Wayman shows how understanding the limits and possibilities of the person who has dementia can make all the difference in the world. 

In this thoroughly revised edition, Wayman adds fresh caregiving insights, two completely new chapters that explore the dangers of denial by both caregivers and people with memory loss, and the "Dementia-Aware Guide to Caregiving" - a quick reference tool for advice on how to respond to specific difficult behaviors.

Sharing is caring!

I am so grateful for the sharing that Laura provided in this book. It is an example of caring beyond self and helping so many caregivers. I have shared this book already with my own mom and many family members so that we can prepare and help those in our own care. The examples provided are helpful too and although every situation is different, she has given so many ideas through others experiences that can be useful to not only care for someone with dementia but also encourage someone who is which creates a level of empathy that is lacking in many families today due to a lack of education and willingness to learn from others. Thank you for sharing your deep care for people and I hope I can provide this same care to those around me!
