Unter einer Demenz leiden oder mit Demenz leben? Eine Demenzerkrankung stellt für Angehörige und Freunde des Erkrankten eine enorme Herausforderung dar. Ein Mensch, den man so gut kannte, verändert sich auf unbegreifliche Weise – mit Konsequenzen auch für das eigene Leben. Dave Pulsford und Rachel Thompson erläutern Schritt für Schritt, wie eine Demenzerkrankung verläuft. Sie nehmen Angehörige und Pflegende mit auf eine Reise in die Welt der Demenz und erklären, was mit dem erkrankten Menschen passiert und auch, welche Auswirkungen die Erkrankung auf das Umfeld hat. Wo kann man sich informieren? Wo findet man Unterstützung? Eine Demenz schreitet ständig fort, und so müssen auch Angehörige sich dem weiteren Verlauf der Erkrankung immer wieder anpassen. Auch hier bietet das Buch Unterstützung, mit dem Ziel einer möglichst hohen Lebensqualität für Erkrankte und Angehörige.

Dementia affects more than 700,000 people in the UK; Alzheimer's is the most common cause of dementia, affecting around 417,000 people in the UK and some four million in the USA. While dementia affects mostly older people, some 17,000 young people also have dementia in the UK. There are treatments, but no cure. Caring for people with dementia is a well-recognized burden, but recently there have been moves to represent this in a more positive light, emphasising people with dementia as individuals who deserve respect, rather than as the challenge as which they have traditionally been viewed. Nevertheless, for individual carers without enough support, having a loved one with dementia often remains challenging. This book looks at practicalities and relationships, including: Defining Alzheimer's and other dementias; Diagnosis; After diagnosis; planning for the future; Medications to help with symptoms such as memory problems, wandering, and aggressive behavior; Other therapies such as music therapy; Practicalities: coping with strange behaviour, confusion, memory problems. Outside help and services and how to access them; Later stages of dementia; issues to consider such as residential care, financial arrangements, wills and living wills and coping with being a carer.

"Die meisten Menschen lieben mit einem vorsichtigen Herzen - nur, wenn bestimmte Dinge passieren oder nicht passieren, nur bis zu einem gewissen Grad. Wenn der Mensch, den wir lieben, uns verletzt, uns im Stich lässt, uns enttäuscht, wenn dieser Mensch schwer zu lieben wird, dann hören wir oft auf zu lieben. Wir schützen unser empfindliches Herz." In DER LIEBE EINE STIMME GEBEN erzählt Bestsellerautorin Lisa Genova die berührende Geschichte einer Freundschaft zweier Frauen, in der ein außergewöhnlicher kleiner Junge eine ganz besondere Rolle spielt.
