              Many books have been written about dementia, usually dealing with the symptoms and the medical side of the condition. But here is a thoroughly practical book for carers and families, written by someone with first-hand experience of caring for a person with dementia over many year...s. Drawing on real-life situations, this book brings together a wealth of information not easily found elsewhere. It provides solutions to a vast range of situations the carer is likely to encounter -- from organising legal and financial affairs, to ways of coping with the symptoms of dementia, such as aggression, hallucinations, incontinence and decreasing mental powers. It also contains thousands of hints for dealing with dementia on a daily basis, including adapting the home environment; showering, dressing, eating and drinking; keeping the mind stimulated; and communicating well with family, friends and professionals, as well as with each other. The personal stories throughout the book are inspiring, sobering and at times amusing. This book is full of the wisdom and insights of experienced carers, and has much to offer anyone new to this role.
