Caregiving is an Art 

Caregiving for a person with Alzheimer's is a long haul proposition with many ups and downs. The Alzheimer's Workbook provides a roadmap for caregivers from first diagnosis to the last stages of the disease. 

The Alzheimer's Workbook is the result of nearly ten years study and research on Alzheimer's disease and caregiver stress. It is intended to be an easily accessible, one stop tool for caregivers. Alzheimer's is characterized by varying degrees of dementia and the workbook takes a problem solving approach recognizing that the least invasive approach is usually the best and that what works today may not work tomorrow.

Behavior Based Solutions

There are over 1500 behavioral strategies listed in the Alzheimer's Workbook arranged from the least invasive to most invasive that can aid in the problem solving process needed in everyday care.

The Alzheimer's Workbook uses standard ADLs (Activities of Daily Living) and IADLs  (Instrumental Activities of Daily Living) and expands them into the 5 domains of Holistic Health: Mental, Physical, Emotional, Social and Spiritual The workbook is a systematic care management tool intended to help caregivers bring order and sense to what is too often a chaotic "through the looking glass" experience.
