Many of us are unprepared an confused about how to proceed when our parent begins to suffer the effects of old age. This confusion is amplified when faced with a diagnosis of a cognitive illness such as Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia. What if the illness has already progressed considerably but your parent still refuses your help? Does your parent have trouble remembering when to take medications? How do you comfort your anxious parent during this emotional time? This book answers those questions.

In addition, there may be several people involved with your parent's care. Tanya Lee Howe created the Alzheimer's Planner for Caregivers to record every health-care and parent-related update so that all those involved in her mother's care could work together to help improve her mother's quality of life. It's a coordination tool that will become invaluable to you, your parent, and anyone involved in caregiving. Howe also encourages her mother to use a Memory Book as a form of short-term memory, helping her mother retain the little details of day-to-day living.

Access to the Alzheimer's Planner for Caregivers forms and worksheets is included with the book

Throughout the book, Howe uses her real-life experiences to guide readers through the sensitive topic of eldercare. From deciding when to step in and help, how to care for your parent's emotional well-being, how to make health-care decisions, and how to help his or her finances, Supporting Parents with Alzheimer’s explains it all.

The book covers topics such as:

  • Reducing triggers that cause mood swings
  • Finding activities to do with your parent
  • Making a transition as comfortable as possible
  • Preventing elder abuse and fraud
  • Avoiding caregiver burnout

If your parent has been diagnosed with a cognitive illness, Supporting Parents with Alzheimer’s will arm you with the knowledge to meet your parent's psychological and physical needs so that he or she can continue to live comfortably and safely, without feeling like a burden.
