When Alzheimer's disease begins to rob individuals of their memory and cognitive abilities, additional support in the form of an in-home caregiver can make life easier at home. Even as symptoms progress, a caregiver can help extend the quality of life of individuals living with Alzheimer's and other dementias while also providing valuable respite for the family. While being a caregiver for a loved one can be a very rewarding experience, providing the necessary care and support that he or she needs throughout the course of Alzheimer's can be extremely challenging.
The Handbook of Live-In Care, the first publication of its kind targeted at family caregivers, provides practical advice in these areas and offers the first definitive guide to maximizing the quality of life for homebound individuals.

For further education around the topic of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's, register today for a free webinar on Wednesday, September 12th at 11 AM Pacific, 2 PM Eastern, presented by Dr. Judith London, renowned dementia expert and author. The webinar, Support for Alzheimer's and Dementia Caregivers: The Unsung Heroes, will address the physical and mental impact of Alzheimer's and dementia, provide family and professional caregivers with best practices to promote quality of life, and share practical knowledge on adapting to behaviors common in individuals suffering from dementia. While caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s can be a physically and emotionally trying experience, following Dr. London’s “ABC Approach” can equip caregivers with the understanding and knowledge to provide the best possible environment for care recipients.
