Research-based advice for people who care for someone with dementia Nearly half of U.S. citizens over the age of 85 are suffering from some kind of dementia and require care. Loving Someone Who Has Dementia is a new kind of caregiving book. It's not about the usual techniques, but about how to manage on-going stress and grief. The book is for caregivers, family members, friends, neighbors as well as educators and professionals—anyone touched by the epidemic of dementia. Dr. Boss helps caregivers find hope in "ambiguous loss"—having a loved one both here and not here, physically present but psychologically absent. Outlines seven guidelines to stay resilient while caring for someone who has dementia Discusses the meaning of relationships with individuals who are cognitively impaired and no longer as they used to be Offers approaches to understand and cope with the emotional strain of care-giving Boss's book builds on research and clinical experience, yet the material is presented as a conversation. She shows you a way to embrace rather than resist the ambiguity in your relationship with someone who has dementia.

I Care provides a sense of real hope that quality of life issues will not necessarily diminish when effective care management principles are adopted.” Marc Wortmann, Executive Director Alzheimer’s Disease International “I Care helps us bridge the gap between our medical understanding and the practical aspects facing caregivers of loved ones with dementia.

This book is designed to assist those caring for people with dementia, whether it is family members at home, people who meet others with dementia in the community or paid carers in any environment. It is not full of theory, rather based on more than 40 years collective experience of people who have cared for people with dementia and their families. It provides practical advice, sometimes referred to as "tricks of the trade" to provide insight in promoting the health and well being for the person with dementia and their carers. Tips include how to encourage someone to not only cooperate, but actually enjoy their showering routine. Strategies are included on encouraging conversation with a person with dementia and how the carer ensures their well-being. The tips and strategies are what make up this book and there are many. This book has been reviewed by both spouses and children of people with dementia who admit this book would have been of great benefit to them as they shared the progression of dementia with their loved one.
