A Manual For Staff

Last week's blog was about our latest book, A Caregiver's Guide to Lewy Body Dementia, 2nd Ed. This week, I want to tell you a little about another book we worked on last year, Lewy Body Dementia: A Manual for Staff. 

It has much of the same up-to-date information in it as the new Guide, but it is written for your helpers and for facility care staff. It makes a wonderful gift for anyone who is helping you care for your loved one. You can find in on Amazon in print or eBook.  You can also buy it as a part of a set on our website.

When you get the set, you also get a copy of our new Guide, and a copy of Responsive Dementia Care, which focuses on dealing with these frustrating behaviors. If you buy the Quad set, this includes the book that focuses more on early symptoms, Dealing with Cognitive Issues of Parkinson's & Lewy Body Dementia. While the information in these books overlap at times, each focuses on separate issues and all are helpful.

Of course, there are many other helpful books available besides those we've written. In January, we'll review several of them here.

For more information about Lewy body disorders, read our books:
