In an article posted by BBC News on the 4th of May, 2012, it is estimated that one in three people over the age of 65 will die with dementia and that there is little information about caring for this type of degenerative condition. “Researchers say that there is a lack of evidence on how to provide the best care for patients with advanced dementia who are terminally ill”. In line with this, an author going by the pen name Frank’s Wife, shares her personal journey of how she cared for her husband diagnosed with such debilitating neurological illness. In her book CAREGIVING FOR BEGINNERS, readers will discover a myriad of comprehensive information that will help them deal with the pains of dementia.
Simple and easy-to-understand, the texts found in CAREGIVING FOR BEGINNERS are designed for common lay people. Hence, some medical jargon and complicated scientific terminologies are cut down into basic explanations. Also, etched within the heartwarming pages of this book are some enlightening messages, which help readers cope with the emotional anguish and fear that comes along with caring for a dementia-inflicted loved one.
A useful tool that can alleviate the pains of dementia patients, as well as resolve the physical, mental and emotional challenges of their caregivers, this book is comforting and uplifting. Readers will also be interested to know that Frank, the subject of this groundbreaking literary work, is one of the longest living Frontal Lobe Dementia patients according to the research facility that handles his case. This only goes to show the tremendous success of his wife in giving immense amounts of care for her husband, which is something that readers may want to learn from.
This book will be featured at the 2012 New York State Reading Association Book Exhibit in Syracuse, N.Y. on October 28 -30, 2012.
