Expand your resources for Dementia care

Learning to Live Well with Dementia

In their new book, "Better Living With Dementia," Laura Gitlin and Nancy Hodgson - two of the nation's leading experts on care for people with cognitive impairment - argue forcefully that it's time for this "cycle of despair" to be broken.

At a minimum, Gitlin and Hodgson
suggest pointing people newly diagnosed with dementia to the Alzheimer's Association, the Lewy Body Dementia Association, the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration and the government's website, - all valuable sources of information and potential assistance.
