As Americans age, many will require senior living and, as they age in place, many will develop a dementia-causing illness like Alzheimer’s disease. Senior care at one point does become dementia care, so it is important to understand as much as you can about dementia, related behaviors, communication difficulties and how to successfully intervene.
Truth, Lies & Alzheimer’s – Its Secret Faces by authors Lisa Skinner and Douglas W.

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.
