What better day than Halloween to talk about a book that helps care partners deal with the frightening and bewildering behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) that start showing up far too early with LBD but eventually show up with most dementias?
We plan to have our upcoming book published in time you to use it as a Christmas gift. If you've been following daily October blogs, you already know what it is about. Each of these blogs is a tiny sample of the information in the book.
Of course, since these blogs were kept very short, they contained only a few of the items covered in the book under each subject and seldom included the many quotes that make the book so much more personal.
We plan to offer versions of the book: one for care partners and one for care staff. You can get one for yourself and one as a gift for your helper. We will list it on LBDtools.com and on Amazon so watch for a notice!
