For anyone who has ever cared for a person with Alzheimer's, coping with the emotional, financial, and day-to-day issues can be grueling. While many people are aware of the physical effects of this disease, very few know how to handle the practical issues that can make dealing with a loved one or patient with Alzheimer's that much more difficult. In The Alzheimer's Advisor, Vaughn E. James offers an empathetic and straightforward guide to the legal and ethical dilemmas associated with this disorder. Using real-life situations, the author offers invaluable advice on such topics as: estate planning • the emotional issues of caring for a patient with Alzheimer's • how to cope with the cost of care • living wills, power of attorney, and guardian­­ship • treatment and diagnosis • finding the right lawyer and paying for the cost of legal help • legal issues for the mobile Alzheimer's patient From recognizing the early signs of the disease to understanding the legal implications, this is the one book that will enable caregivers, health-care practitioners, and family members to protect themselves and their loved ones.

An estimated 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease. That number continues to grow - by 2050 the number of individuals with Alzheimer's could range from 11.3 million to 16 million. Alzheimer's disease is not a normal part of aging. It is a devastating disorder of the brain's nerve cells that impairs memory, thinking, and behavior. Written for patients, their families, and caregivers, A Caregiver's Guide to Alzheimer's Disease: 300 Tips for Making Life Easier will help readers understand what is physically happening to the brain so they can empower their own special skills and talents throughout the disease process. The book is divided into three sections that correspond to the progression of Alzheimer's and the unique challenges encountered at each stage. Section A: The major part of the book divides the progression of the disease into Stages: the Pre-Clinical Stage; Early-To-Mild Stage, which marks the onset of the disease; Moderate Stage; and the Severe Stage. Hundreds of practical tips geared to coping and compensating at each level of the disease provide support for the affected individual and the caregiver. Section B: A bonus section of questions and answers addresses specific issues caregivers face and give them points to reflect on as they continue the process. Key topics covered include: Legal and financial issues Family Forums in the caregiving process The role of medication at various stages of the disease Helping children understand what is happening to a loved one Handling the holidays and celebrations Making the living environment more stimulating and enjoyable Section C: Lists resources and suggests websites to find additional information about the disease itself as well as related valuable networks. With an abundance of pointers and guidelines for affected individuals, their families, friends and caregivers, A Caregiver's Guide to Alzheimer's Disease: 300 Tips for Making Life Easier is essential for all readers who want to focus on the capabilities that remain instead of those that have been lost.

Punktem wyjścia prezentowanych w książce badań nad percepcją lęku przed śmiercią wśród 791 osób zarówno z tak zwanych zawodów pomocowych, jak i kierunków studiów przygotowujących do tych zawodów, realizowanych w Czechach, Polsce, Ukrainie i we Włoszech, były trzy kwestie. Pierwsza z nich to autorskie rozumienie samej tanatopedagogiki jako „nauki o wychowaniu ze świadomością śmiertelności, wpisaną w naturę bytu ludzkiego, opartą na fundamentalnej zasadzie poszanowania godności i wolności każdej istoty ludzkiej oraz nienaruszalności i apriorycznej wartości życia ludzkiego” (Binnebesel, 2013, s. 251). Druga kwestia to także autorskie ujęcie kwestii lęku tanatycznego, które zostało zaprezentowane w kontekście doświadczania Penthosu. Sama prezentowana tematyka lęku jest między innymi związana z rozważaniami Tillicha, Frankla, Kierkegaarda oraz Kępińskiego. Przytoczone w pracy argumenty zawsze mogą spotkać się z kontrargumentami, które z kolei napotkają kolejne. Naprzeciw rozważaniom Frankla można postawić analizy Sartre’a, na argumenty Tillicha można przytoczyć kontrargumenty Nietzschego, Wojtyle-Janowi Pawłowi II można przeciwstawić Marksa, w kontrze Chudemu można zaprezentować poglądy Spinozy, a Saint-Exupéry’emu Camusa. W wielu miejscach istota argumentów wynika właśnie bardziej z istoty spotkania i swoistej wiary, z konkretnych historii i przekazów, ze słów mówiących o lęku, bólu, o samotności i niepewności. Wydaje się, że istota owego przekazu to próba spotkania z tymi ludźmi w pryzmacie zrozumienia i pomocy. Kwestia trzecia to rozumienie Tanatopedagogicznej Relacyjnej Terapii Zastępczej (TRTZ) ujmującej swoje działania we wzajemnych relacjach pomiędzy trzema środowiskami wychowawczymi (pierwotnym, wtórnym i zintegrowanym) oraz generowanymi przez nie specyficznymi celami wychowawczymi (Binnebesel, 2002b, s. 366–367). Przyjmując powyższe podstawy szeroko prezentowane w tekście opracowania, podjęto badania na autorskim kwestionariuszu diagnostyczno-terapeutycznym CCJ. Geneza samego narzędzia badawczego jest związana z praktyką terapeutyczną autora w pracy z dziećmi terminalnie chorymi i ich rodzinami oraz dziećmi doświadczającymi żałoby. Wyniki badań zostały ujęte w trzech kategoriach pojęciowych związanych z dynamiką narzędzia badawczego. Tak więc zaprezentowano wskazania doświadczanych przez respondentów lęków, następnie zaprezentowano wskazywane przez badanych przyczyny i możliwości oraz sposoby radzenia sobie z nimi. Analiza statystyczna oparta na analizie procentowej, teście χ2 oraz analizie jakościowej zebranego materiału ukazała z jednej strony uniwersalność poszczególnych wskazań związanych z doświadczaniem lęku tanatycznego, jego przyczynami i sposobami radzenia sobie. Z drugiej zaś strony zostały ukazane różnice wynikające zarówno z przynależności państwowej (kulturowe), wyznania, religijności, jak i płci czy wieku. Wyniki badań potwierdziły przyjętą w założeniach teorię o swoistym rozumieniu lęku tanatycznego jako elementu związanego z percepcją rzeczywistości, kultury i wychowania.

Although the public most often associates dementia with Alzheimer’s disease, the medical profession now distinguishes various types of “other” dementias. This book is the first and only comprehensive guide dealing with frontotemporal degeneration (FTD), one of the largest groups of non-Alzheimer’s dementias. The contributors are either specialists in their fields or have exceptional hands-on experience with FTD sufferers. Beginning with a focus on the medical facts, the first part defines and explores FTD as an illness distinct from Alzheimer’s disease. Also considered are clinical and medical care issues and practices, as well as such topics as finding a medical team and rehabilitation interventions. The next section on managing care examines the daily care routine including exercise, socialization, adapting the home environment, and behavioral issues. In the following section on caregiver resources, the contributors identify professional and government assistance programs along with private resources and legal options. The final section focuses on the caregiver, in particular the need for respite and the challenge of managing emotions. This new, completely revised edition follows recent worldwide collaboration in research and provides the most current medical information available, a better understanding of the different classifications of FTD, and more clarity regarding the role of genetics. The wealth of information offered in these pages will help both healthcare professionals and caregivers of someone suffering from frontotemporal degeneration.

Since 2008, he has served as a professional companion/caregiver exclusively to AD patients, and a support to those struggling to cope with the diagnosis of Alzheimer's in a loved one.

Every year, millions of Americans transfer their finances to their children or other family members because they reach a point at which they can no longer manage them alone.

This book has been written to do just that, providing a comprehensive walkthrough of what you can expect and how to successfully handle your parents finances. To start, you must learn the basics of managing money that is not your own.

You will learn how to evaluate sources of income including how to receive and manage Social Security, 401(k), and other retirement plans as payments are made. Additionally, you will learn how to balance their expenses, including a budgeting sheet to help you maintain the same level of expense they expect. You will learn how to budget accordingly, depending on where your parents are living and what their medical expenses might be. A chapter on insurance and medical coverage is included to help you understand how much money you can expect to set aside for these expenses and how much should be covered by programs such as Medicaid. Learn how to maintain housing for your parents as well, whether they are in assisted living or staying with you. A guide on how to talk to your parents about fraud and keep them away from potentially dangerous opportunities will make it easier for you to keep a handle on their finances without taking away their freedom.
