Caring for a Loved One with Alzheimer's Disease: A Christian Perspective is the touching story of a woman's daily struggles as a caregiver to her mother who suffers from Alzheimer's disease. You'll learn how God's presence in her life has helped her. You will also find practical day-to-day tips for living with a loved one suffering from senile dementia and how your spirituality can make the journey easier for both of you. This important guide provides an honest description of the emotions you may be forced to come to terms with while dealing with a loved one or parishioner with Alzheimer's disease and how God's presence in your life can help lift that burden. Caring for a Loved One with Alzheimer's Disease gives you firsthand accounts of the stages of pain, despair, acceptance, and victory that you may experience while caring for someone with Alzheimer's to let you know that what you are feeling is normal and that God will help you overcome these challenges. Alzheimer's disease often goes undetected until its later stages.

Caring for a Loved One with Alzheimer's Disease is filled with tips and suggestions to make caring for your loved one easier for both of you, such as: learning to separate the person from the disease researching the disease and keeping informed about every aspect of this progressive and irreversible neurological disorder realizing that you need emotional support and should seek help from your pastor, church care group, or best friend discovering how having power of attorney and creating a living will can prevent many problems in the future understanding that to care for your loved one at home is challenging and that taking simple steps, such as "baby-proofing" your house, will prevent traumatic disasters turning your anger and guilt to positive energy and avoiding emotional drain and strain This unique book offers you solace amidst the turbulence of caring for someone stricken with this difficult condition. Caring for a Loved One with Alzheimer's Disease provides an open and honest description of how faith can comfort and support you and your family while you care for someone with dementia.
