About the Book

A guide to more successful communication for the millions of Americans caring for someone with dementia: “Offers a fresh approach and hope.”—NPR

Revolutionizing the way we perceive and live with Alzheimer’s, Joanne Koenig Coste offers a practical approach to the emotional well-being of both patients and caregivers that emphasizes relating to patients in their own reality.

-Cope with the diagnosis and adjust to the disease’s progression
-Help the patient talk about the illness
-Face the issue of driving
-Make meals and bath times as pleasant as possible
-Adjust room design for the patient’s comfort
-Deal with wandering, paranoia, and aggression
