Alzheimer's can have a devastating impact on a patient's close relationships and all too often, family members and friends feel so uncomfortable that they end up dreading visits, or simply give up trying to stay in contact with the patient.The author rescues these lost relationships by showing readers a wealth of practical things they can do to stay connected with the Alzheimer's patient in their lives. Strauss sums up her expertise in straightforward suggestions and invaluable do's and don'ts, with advice on everything from dealing effectively with the inevitable repetition that occurs in conversations with an Alzheimer's patient to helpful strategies for saying no to unrealistic demands. She also includes thoughtful tips to remind readers to take care of their own feelings and suggests ways to help children become comfortable about visiting.
