Caring for a loved one with dementia: A mindfulness-based guide for reducing stress and making the best of your journey together is a 200-page guide to supporting those who support people with dementia. Written by a licensed clinical social worker who specializes in bringing new, innovative solutions to the field of dementia care, this book offers a mindfulness-based dementia care (MBDC) program to help caregivers meet their own needs and lower their own stress levels while caring for a loved one. The author offers strategies she used herself while caring for her own mother.
In the first part of the book, readers will learn more about dementia and which professionals to turn to for more help. The connection between dementia care challenges and stress are explored along with the way in which mindfulness can benefit the caregiver. Basic mindfulness practices are discussed along with the importance of acknowledging grief. Readers will also learn how to integrate mindfulness into communication and response to challenging situations. Self-care and the fruits that can be reaped from this program are discussed.
