Reviews

"It is good to have a guide that is as intuitive and humane as Laura Wayman. This book will help lighten the burden for caregiver and patient alike."

"It is a book I wanted to share with everybody. It made me laugh out loud, it made me cry (really!) but most of all it made me think. [A]s a resource I feel it is invaluable and I will be keeping it near to hand. It is not only a useful tool for use with dementia but it is also life-affirming."

"This book can be warmly recommended to caregivers as an upbeat and encouraging guide to developing those brief moments of successful communication... A Loving Approach to Dementia Care is exactly what it says on the label."

"Wayman's passion for her work shines through and her real-life examples are pertinent—such as how to respond to someone who has dementia who constantly forgets a loved one has died. Although written for caregivers, especially family members, the book contains insights that are salient for health professionals, especially those seeking to develop their interpersonal and communication skills and understand how dementia can impact on people's lives."

"Both A Loving Approach to Dementia Care and Aging Together are very kindly books giving warm guidance on coping with old people who are seriously confused."
