Reviews of Thoughtful Dementia Care: Understanding the Dementia Experience by Jennifer Ghent-Fuller

Billie Daddario reviewed on March 29, 2022

This isn't the type of book that you enjoy reading. It is the type of book that one reads as a necessity because one's life has or is experiencing a tragedy as mine is. I have found this book helpful as my father struggles with Alzheimer's.

I like the thoughtful, caring explanations in this book. I am living with my 91 year old mother who has not been diagnosed with dementia but is slowly declining. This book has given me good insights and ideas to accommodate her better.
I recommend this book to anyone with elderly relatives.

This book has really clarified some very difficult situations for me and has definitely changed my interactions with my husband who has mid stage Alzheimer's. Thank you, thank you!

As a care giver, I find that I can better understand the changes that my wife has gone through on this journey of the little known and find it less stressful after reading this book. I also am observing some of the other residents and better understand their behavours when I am there visiting my wife every day.

As a carer for a person diagnosed with Alzheimers I found this book very helpfull and it made me feel less alone in our struggles with this terrible disease. I certainly would recommend it as a must read for carers, family, and friends.
