Connecting the Dots: Communicating with Your Loved One with Advance Alzheimer's (Pub Dec 2009)
Connecting the Dots shows readers how to reach the minds and hearts of people with middle to late stage Alzheimer's who may no longer initiate conversation. Compelling and inspiring anecdotes from the author's work reveal the depth of feeling and insight still present in advanced Alzheimer's patients. After each anecdote, the author explains the technique she used to draw meaning from the Alzheimer's patient's communication, then shows readers how to use it with their loved ones. The book also includes chapters of pertinent, accessible information on Alzheimer's that will help readers understand how the brain is affected by the disease.
