Research-based advice for people who care for someone with dementia Nearly half of U.S. citizens over the age of eighty-five are suffering from some kind of dementia and require care. Loving Someone Who Has Dementia is a new kind of caregiving book. It's not about the usual techniques, but about how to manage on-going stress and grief. The book is for caregivers, family members, friends, and neighbors, as well as educators and professionals-anyone touched by the epidemic of dementia. Dr. Boss helps caregivers find hope in "ambiguous loss"-having a loved one both here and not here, physically present but psychologically absent. - Outlines seven guidelines to stay resilient while caring for someone who has dementia - Discusses the meaning of relationships with individuals who are cognitively impaired and no longer as they used to be - Offers approaches to understand and cope with the emotional strain of care-giving Boss's book builds on research and clinical experience, yet the material is presented as a conversation. She shows you a way to embrace rather than resist the ambiguity in your relationship with someone who has dementia.
