Descripción editorial

In a world where family members are increasingly being asked to be caregivers to their family members with Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia, where do they go to find the training and information to take on this new and complex job? When Reasoning No Longer Works is the training manual these family caregivers have been searching for.


Written by a Gerontologist with more than twenty years of experience, this reference gives the reader an easy-to-understand view of what dementia does to the brain, how it is diagnosed, and most importantly, how to deal with its effects.


Bulleted lists clearly explain:


•  How to avoid a catastrophic reaction

•  Specific approaches for aggressive behavior

•  How to deal with disruptive behaviors

•  Ways to diminish wandering

•  What to do when a wanderer is missing

•  When to look for outside help

You’ll also follow the story of Lou and Rose, a couple who share their lives with Alzheimer’s disease. Together, they find the answers to questions caregivers and victims are sometimes afraid to ask.


Second Edition (with foreword by Dr. Randall J. Bjork)


“Sixteen years ago, my father, Charles, died as the result of AD. For many years to come, I knew that I had failed him. I wish I knew then what I read about now in When Reasoning No Longer Works. The stress of living with an Alzheimer’s patient in the family can be heart-wrenching, but this book provides hope and help.” — Jeanie M, daughter and caregiver
