TRUTH, LIES & ALZHEIMER'S Its Secret Faces is a concise guide to navigating the heartbreaking challenges of having a loved one diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias.
Through a rich trove of stories culled from her years in the eldercare industry, author Lisa Skinner offers insight into the difficult questions families face, including:
- How do I respond to a loved one's false belief?
- Am I abandoning my parent if I place them in the care of professionals?
- How do we make the best of our time left together?
Skinner's original thinking and counter-intuitive solutions provide family members, spouses, children, caregivers, and others with the tools they need to effectively manage the symptoms of brain disease.
