Abstract

Listen to Me, I Am Still Somebody introduces the Alzheimer's disease sufferer to their caregivers and the community at large.

Alzheimer's disease is a devastating disease process, yet the reader will laugh and perhaps cry a little, but begin to understand. Although this is an incurable disease, the reader will be given hope and begin to heal.

Family caregivers are not the only ones affected by Alzheimer's. The professional caregiver, medical personnel, police, emergency services, and our community at large will find themselves interacting with the Alzheimer's disease sufferer and their families. This book is meant for all of them.

Armed with a better understanding of the disease process, communication techniques, and behavior management skills the reader will be able to create the specialized environment needed by the Alzheimer's disease sufferer anywhere.

Strengthened by a better understanding of stress management and how to begin the grieving process, along with the community resources waiting to help, the reader will learn that caring for themselves will protect both the caregiver and the Alzheimer's sufferer.

Readers will find that this is not a clinical manuscript. The information is written in a conversational manner. Sandy Kehoe's method of delivery has helped so many people understand what is really happening to the disease sufferer and what interventions work. The reader will learn that the disease sufferer has so much of themselves still intact--perhaps a younger version of themselves, but still an important person worthy of respect and dignity and one who has the right to maintain their self worth.

About the Author

Sandy Kehoe has worked extensively in community education about Alzheimer's disease. She has served as the administrator of an assisted living facility for Alzheimer's disease sufferers and is presently an Alzheimer's Disease Care Consultant.
