Many of us are unprepared and confused about how to proceed when our parent begins to suffer the effects of old age. If your parent has been diagnosed with a cognitive illness, 'Supporting Parents with Alzheimer's' will arm you with the knowledge to meet your parentís psychological and physical needs so that he or she can continue to live comfortably and safely, without feeling like a burden.
Already an experienced editor with Self-Counsel Press, Tanya Lee Howe also co-authored its successful 'Start and Run a Tattoo & Body Piercing Studio' title. Currently Tanya is sharing care of a mother with Alzheimer's with her sister-in-law. They learned to communicate their day shift/night shift mother care by keeping a detailed journal. Exclusive to 'Supporting Parents with Alzheimerís' is a technique that author Tanya Lee Howe developed called the ďmom book". Itís a coordination tool that will become invaluable to you, your elderly parent, and anyone else involved in care-giving. This method of documentation is a new angle on elder care.
