I am a huge fan of using Montessori Methods to help the carer best help the person living with dementia. I am reading a new book about just that. It’s a pretty easy read and you might want to read it as well. It’s called You Say Goodbye and We Say Hello: The Montessori Method for Positive Dementia Care. It’s written by Tom and Karen Brenner. If not, you might want to check out the following internet support groups recommended by the Brenners. I’ve checked them out and they can be very helpful. http://www.alzinfo.org/ and http://www.alzheimersreadingroom.com/
They are reputable sources of information. Check them out.
