More about this item

 An Emotional Journey - DVD

This dynamic video offers insight, hope, and understanding for anyone who cares for a loved one with Alzheimer's. This disease without
cure currently afflicts more than 30 million people, and there are no treatments to halt its progression, making caregiving both
essential-and difficult.

 Topics discussed include:
• Caring for one who doesn't remember your name
• Grieving the losses of their life, and yours
• When an unexpected side of your loved one comes out
• When it feels like your love no longer helps
• Struggling with denial
• Hungering for simple recognition
• Feelings of failure and guilt
• How to handle frustration and anger
• How to care for you physically, emotionally, spiritually-while you care for someone else
• Feeling exhausted - and what to do when that happens
• Finding support - on the Web, through the telephone, or in-person
• Allowing someone else to care for your loved one
• Times when laughter, singing, and foolishness are entirely appropriate!
• When you worry about making other people comfortable
• Learning to accept the person that s/he is now - there is no going back
• The courage and sacrifice of an Alzheimer's caregiver

Caring for a Loved One with Alzheimer's is divided into 12 segments and features lengthy interviews with these experts:

Mary Ellen Geist,
 former CBS Radio anchor, author of Measure of the Heart: A Father's Alzheimer's, a Daughter's Return
Dr. Kenneth Doka,
 Senior Consultant, Hospice Foundation of America
Joanne Koenig Coste,
 family therapist, author of Learning to Speak Alzheimer's: A Groundbreaking Approach for Everyone Dealing with the Disease
Plus, the insights of a real Alzheimer's Support Group.
