  •     Great book: I give away to each of my families that are struggling with moving a loved one. Great info!
  •     As an RN working with residents diagnosed with Dementia, this will be a great asset to my library of great books. I will use this again and again and recommend it to family members struggling with all the questions that surround this challenging diagnosis.Teresa RN
  •     If you have a loved one with memory loss, this is very helpful.
  •     This book is so simplistic and elemental. There was nothing that I read in it that is not good common sense.The only thing that was worthwhile were the case studies.
  •     This book is badly needed and detailed information that family members (and professionals in dementia care)will appreciate - information that usually gets only short discussion in most books about family caregiving. It takes the reader step by step through the emotional and practical considerations for making the decision and making the move. Helpful tips and supportive advice each step of the way. It helps the reader sort through their emotions, and figure out how to decide questions like "should we tell mom before we take her there?"I completely disagree with the reviewer who said it contains only common sense advice. Most books written for family caregivers of people with dementia are not nearly as detailed about the practical things to consider to actually make all the decisions involved in the move and the steps that lead up to it. Also there's advice about how and when to visit after move, common emotional reactions of family to the move, and common emotional reactions of person with dementia to the move. It was just the kind of information I was looking for and was not able to find in other books.It's clearly organized and to the point. I am really impressed. All 52 pages help light the way of the journey. Includes checksheet/worklist at end for assessing each LTC home you visit.Table of Contents:Making the Decision to MoveAdvantages and Disadvantages to MovingWhy Moving is HardLocating Residential Care HomesNext StepsPreparing Yourself for the VisitQuestions to Ask and Things to Look ForAfter your VisitVisiting with (or without?)

  •     Concise, practical advice. Just what I was needing.
