It is no doubt a shocker when you first find out your loved one has dementia. My siblings and I were dumbfounded when we found out our mother had it--and had for two years previously also! We eventually figured out what to do, how to do it and when to do it. Always keeping in mind her SAFETY. Would an assisted living facility be best or some other alternative? Look at finances, how far away your loved one would be from you, what others have to say about the various assisted living facilities. You will eventually make the necessary choice and move forward in your care of this person. I did. And, I documented what I saw, heard, and experienced. My book The Dementia Dance covers it all. My reviewers say The Dementia Dance is a 'must read'. It has helped countless folks who are struggling with that dreaded disease of dementia.

Do you know that there are 47 million people worldwide living with some type of dementia? That means that 47 million caregivers are needed. Caregivers without a clue as what to do and how to do it when relating to their loved one with dementia. As a daughter who has been there, done that (my mom had the disease for four years and I was the primary caregiver) I have written The Dementia Dance to help you maneuver through the process without losing your sanity. It can be done. Read my book and find out how I did it. You'll be glad you did.
