Untangling Dementia takes the mystery and fear out of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias by making a complex, often-overwhelming disease process understandable to all readers. Through the use of real-life examples, practical tips and explanations that make sense, Tam Cummings walks the reader through dementia – from diagnosis to death – in a caring and loving way. The result is that families and caregivers walk away with the information they need to better care for their loved ones every day. Readers will: — Discover what a dementia diagnosis means for a family — Learn about the seven stages of dementia and how to track the disease’s progression — Understand how damage in the brain causes behavior changes — Improve their ability to communicate with and care for loved ones — Recognize signs associated with the Four A’s of dementia — Know what to expect when death from dementia is imminent
