Dementia: A Caregiver's Guide

Dementia: A Caregiver’s Guide, updated third edition*, provides caregivers
with practical tips and coping strategies in such areas as: activities of daily
living, communication, sex and intimacy, managing challenging behaviours,
driving, falls prevention and home safety. It discusses new treatments,
medication and legislation that have emerged since the previous printing.
In addition, based on the feedback of persons with dementia and their
caregivers, new sections were added on such topics as sleep, travelling
with someone with dementia and what to expect in the later stages.


Dementia: A Caregiver’s Guide teaches caregivers how to help the person
with dementia remain active and participate in meaningful activities for as
long as possible. It also highlights the need for caregivers to take time to
care for themselves.
