    Dementia: Frank and Linda's Story

    New Understanding, New Approaches, New Hope

    Practical, day-to-day advice on dementia, based on a true story

    Dementia affects 35 million people worldwide. Until recently, dementia sufferers were considered lost people in a living body. But thanks to a better understanding of how the brain works and how it is affected by dementia, experts and caregivers have developed a new method of caring that can help maintain the individual's personhood.



    Frank and Linda's story powerfully depicts this new approach to caregiving. Through a narrative that starts with the first, early signs, it focuses on the three important aspects of dementia--living, helping, and spiritual support. Built on the foundational Christian belief in the sanctity of all life, the book is filled with pointers and information, including an appendix that lists major support and research organizations.
