We are excited to announce that Dr. Lande’s and Dr. Duff’s new book ‘Does My Mom Have Dementia: How to Recognize and Deal with Dementia in Your Loved Ones’ is now available. It can be found on Amazon as an ebook or as a paperback. It will also be available soon as an audiobook.
Dementia is a frightening word. But what does it actually mean? What is the difference between dementia and simply getting old? It can be easy to become overwhelmed by jargon the doctor throws at you, and sometimes it feels easier to pretend nothing is happening.
Wouldn't it be less stressful if you had a roadmap to take you through the process of telling the difference between normal aging and dementia, working with medical providers, and coping with the diagnosis?
In 'Does My Mom Have Dementia?' we provide this roadmap for you!
You will be able to answer:
What is Dementia?
How does it compare to normal aging?
What are the warning signs and what else could it be?
How do I talk to the doctor about it?
What doctors and procedures are involved?
What is the course of dementia?
How can I better help my loved one?
How do you prevent caregiver burnout?
This is not an academic book. We wrote this book in language that is clear and helpful. Anyone with an aging loved one in their lives can benefit from 'Does My Mom Have Dementia?'
"Does My Mom Have Dementia? is the compassionate, clear-headed and nuts-and-bolts guide that I wish I had before I began my caregiver journey."
