Kim Campbell had recommended a book, "The 36-Hour Day" by Dr. Peter Rabins and Nancy L. Mace, M.A., at a screening of "I'll Be Me". Written to assist caretakers, it is a New York Times best seller with more than 3.5 million copies sold in 18 languages. Since its original publication 30 years ago, it has been updated to include information regarding the causes of dementia, managing the early stages of dementia, the prevention of dementia, and finding appropriate living arrangements for the person who has dementia when home care is no longer an option.
Dr. Rabins is widely regarded as "one of the world’s foremost experts in the treatment of and research on Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, depression, anxiety and family care issues of aging persons and their care givers." He was recently appointed Professor of the Practice and Director of Research with the Erickson School, UMBC. (http://erickson.umbc.edu/rabins/
Nancy L. Mace, M.A. was a consultant to and member of the board of directors of the Alzheimer’s Association and an assistant in psychiatry and coordinator of the T. (Thomas) Rowe and Eleanor Price Teaching Service of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
"The 36-Hour Day" is available through Johns Hopkins University Press at: https://jhupbooks.press.jhu.edu/content/36-hour-day-0
as well as from other book sellers.
I am finding this publication to be a helpful resource for my own personal situation and hope it will help you, too. Some of the information is applicable to caring for seniors in general, helping to make their lives a little easier, less stressful.
