|Summary, etc.:|| "In this fifth revised and expanded edition, Brackey moves beyond the challenges of Alzheimer's, offering practical advice, and focusing on creating moments of joy--while the patient may forget what was said or done, their feelings will linger on. Beginning with the first section--defining moments--she discusses signs, early stages, and understanding the person. She also switches places and makes the patient the teacher. She aims to also create moments of joy for the reader by providing carefully selected stories, quotes, and humor"--Provided by publisher.
