Helping someone with Alzheimer's or another form of dementia is one of the most stressful challenges you can face.

It stinks.

I've been through the worry, frustration, resentment, and feelings of helplessness with five different close family members. I've also been privileged to worked with many of the leading experts in dementia care while building the Alzheimer's channel and educational resources for Caring.com and creating curriculum for Alzheimer's Universe, among other caregiver-education projects.

I can help you.

Contact me about speaking to your group about:

  • Navigating "the 7 deadly emotions of dementia care"

  • The breakthrough "Why-This, Try-This" problem-solving approach

  • How to bring comfort and compassion to every stage of dementia

  • ...or another topic you or your group have in mind.

"In this expanded second edition to include end-of-life care, Paula Spencer Scott covers the full gamut of insight and guidance on everyday care issues and those that surface only occasionally. Notable is the advice from experts in the field. "Why it happens," "Try this," and "To help you cope" sections repeat throughout the book to help caregivers focus on solutions quickly."

Lori La Bey, founder of Alzheimer's Speaks

"I've never seen such an overwhelming positive response from family members and professionals to any book. Both love the comforting, easy-to-understand language and rave about the well-roundedness of the information and how empowering it is to apply the techniques."

 

Gary Small, MD, director of the UCLA Longevity Center 

"Insightful and practical guidance for the millions of caregivers struggling to help their loved ones struggling with dementia."
