Informative & Practical

Walking through this journey of dementia with my parents I have struggled to know how to help my mom be a care partner & how to communicate with my dad since they live 4 hours away. I stumbled across this book a few days ago & am familiar with The 5 Love Languages so thought this might be helpful. Once I got started I couldn't read it fast enough! That's why I decided to try to listen to it. I like to take notes & was able to with this app but had to go back to the hard copy to highlight passages. I know there is a bookmark function but I'm still unsure exactly how to use it.
As far as the book goes, our doctors have provided little to no information or resources for support they just want to say "wait & see" or write prescriptions. This book not only gave me a thorough but not too clinical explanation of what the different types of dementia are & what is going on physiologically but then gave practical & emotional advice on how to support both of my parents! The authors did this in a concise manor with many wonderful, hopeful real examples.
The voice & speed of narration were perfect for me.
