$28.95 incl. GST

Nobody expects their parent to get dementia. Nobody is prepared for it. But for Merideth, her mother did get dementia and for the next three years she became her full time carer. Caring for Somebody with Dementia describes the experiences of life with dementia over those three years. For all that time Dementia sat himself between Merideth and her mother – or at least he tried to. Dementia was a spiteful fellow and had brought with it the more obvious symptoms – delusions, anxiety, depression, memory loss. Caring for Somebody with Dementia details the causes of dementia, mechanisms for dealing with symptoms and offers advice on personal care, frailty and the practicalities of caring.
