Since we experience the world through our senses, managing altered abilities will be fundamental to successful, satisfactory aging. The Five Senses gives an overview of potential changes and offers practical guidance for maintaining quality of life in the face of actual changes in perception. As always, our goal is to give seniors and families the information they need to help loved ones stay independent and live comfortably in their own homes as they age.
Many people are caring for an older adult with dementia. This care giving can be rewarding and very challenging. The nature of a brain disease means each experience is unique. Mind Over Grey Matter offers enormously helpful and practical advice. People with dementia deserve the best quality of life possible; this book can help caregivers provide care which not only does this, but may slow the dementia’s progression. Equipped with actual techniques, families are better able to provide the support and resources loved ones need to continue to live in their own familiar surroundings.
So much of our bodies change as we age—our sleep patterns are no exception. Research tells us people of every age need to rest well to help rebuild immune systems after the damage of everyday living and allow busy minds a break. Sleep improves memory and performance and a prolonged lack of it not only impairs our ability to learn, it can actually cause our brains to shrink.The thoroughly researched strategies presented in The Senior Sleep Solution include specific steps for seniors with dementia and various sleep disorders. Our aim is to help seniors win the battle for a good night’s slumber.
