Let's Talk: How to Bring Confidence, Compassion and Joy Into Your Role as a Caregiver
GAIN CONFIDENCE, GIVE COMPASSION, & FIND JOY AS A DEMENTIA CAREGIVER
If someone you love has Dementia or Alzheimer’s, and you’re their caregiver, what do you do? Where can you get help and what should you do first? Can you provide care at home, or will you need to choose a care facility? What if you make mistakes and hurt them instead of help? What about the cost – do they have the resources to pay for care? And your family, friends, or employer – will they understand the new demands on your time and support you, or will everything fall apart? CAN YOU REALLY DO THIS?
If questions like these fill your head, this book is for you!
