The Dementia Caregiver's Little Book of Hope [Kindle Edition


"Be prepared to be challenged and inspired! Dr. Power's book is transformational in regarding dementia as a shift in the way the person with dementia experiences the world, and then focusing on how to enhance the well-being of those in your care. Once you have read this book, you will indeed 'change [your] minds about those whose minds have changed -- Christine Bryden, Author and Dementia Advocate Dr. Power shows he is one of a mere handful of thinkers that are creating a new enlightened age of Alzheimer's, one that sets personhood, humanity and well-being above the perpetuation of a medicalized disease model. This work helps set the stage for a more humane standard of care that supports living well in our communities for all people. --Peter Reed, PhD, MPH, Director "Sanford Center for Aging"

Al Power continues his provocative and pioneering work in dementia by taking us not only further beyond drugs, but beyond disease itself to wellbeing. We are led to place where people with dementia are returned to being part of humanity." --Peter Whitehouse, Professor of Neurology "Case Western Reserve University"

"Al Power has done it again. His newest book challenges us to partner with the person with dementia to create the best possible life. Dementia Beyond Disease is a thought provoking and practical guide that will help all of us develop winning programs that are life-affirming for the person with dementia and for care partners. Highly recommended!" --David Troxel, Author "The Best Friends Approach to Alzheimer's Care"
