Lebanon, NJ (PRWEB) September 11, 2007
The Dementia Caregiver's Toolbox, a blog for family and professional caregivers of persons with dementia, was named one of the top five internet sites for "candid and informational dementia content" by HealthCentral.com. Susan E. Lanza, the blog's editor, is a dementia expert, author, international speaker, nursing home administrator and consultant.
"Bringing more positive attention to the special needs of dementia caregivers is a mission I completely support. There are many great blogs and websites out there which cater to the growing numbers of dementia caregivers, so I am proud to be named one of the best for 2007," states Lanza.
The Dementia Caregiver's Toolbox Blog was started as an offshoot of the highly successful mini gift book that Lanza wrote in 2006 called, "Nurturing Nuggets For Dementia Caregivers," which was published by her own publishing company, Buttonberry Books of Lebanon, NJ. "Writing a gift book just for dementia caregivers was a more effective way for me to donate to dementia causes like the Alzheimer's Association since I pledged to donate a portion of the profits of each book," states Lanza. The book was named a finalist in the USA 2007 Book Awards and the Eric Hoffer Awards.
As "Nurturing Nuggets For Dementia Caregivers" prepared for a second printing, Lanza created the blog, The Dementia Caregiver's Toolbox, as a way of providing "a great site for news snippets, caregiving tips and product reviews for professional and family caregivers who want to keep up with the world of dementia." "My next book will actually be called The Dementia Caregiver's Toolbox and will exclusively focus on techniques, ideas, anything that will help caregivers improve the quality of life for those with dementia," says Lanza. "My experiences as a nursing home administrator starting a dementia unit with my team as well as all the stories out in the field from my classes will provide some much needed info for caregivers," continues Lanza.
