I just took my 88-year-old mother into my home. She has been diagnosed with dementia. When I was reading Alzheimer's 911, I kept running across behaviors my mother exhibits and getting "Ah-ha" moments. Then Frena Gray-Davidson had concrete suggestions regarding what to do. I especially like the advice on nutrition. And the book is full of so much love. You can tell she has really been in the trenches with elderly folks with dementia. She isn't just professorial or medical or "professional". That's not what you need when you are working with someone who is experiencing the world almost entirely on an emotional level. Medically oriented writers aren't going to tell you to say, "Let's go eat cookies," to your mom when she is upset, but I tried it and it worked. When "the towels are too thick" is a matter of major importance in your life because you mom with dementia hates them and you are running all over town looking for thin ones (thank you dollar stores), you need down to earth advice. Down to earth advice is all you will get in Alzheimer's 911. I would compare it to the book "What to Expect When You are Expecting" which was my pregnancy bible. Sometimes you just need someone to tell you what to do.

A rehash of Speaking Dementia. Get that instead.

I have run an Alzheimer's Support Group for Caregivers for over 13 years and I bought this book for my group. I think it is one of the best books I have passed out because it is geared towards helping and advising the caregiver on how to take care of themselves - not just their carepartner. That is a VERY important subject for caregivers!!!!!! I highly recommend it for any caregiver!! Jackie Baldwin

Very reassuring that some of our observations are now explained. Great balance between facts and observations. I will buy more for family members!

Helps having a personal view of circumstances and when they may occur in the realm of a caretaker and one being taken care of.

Frena Gray-Davidson sheds light on the plight of anyone dealing with dementia and the devastating frustration and hopelessness that accompany the victims and caregivers impacted by the disease. In her book Alzheimer’s 911; Help, Hope, and Healing for the Caregiver, Davidson describes the behaviors of dementia in an effort to help the reader understand and interpret their own observations of a loved one with Alzheimer’s.

Davidson sheds fresh perspectives on caregiving, the importance of flexibility, developing patience, nurturing compassion, and living in the present moment. She uses humorous personal anecdotes, spiritual insights, and practical pointers to encourage and empower the reader to successfully navigate the uncharted course in their journey through Dementia. Each chapter ends with a feature called A Life in Alzheimer’s Land which provides a unique glimpse into the mind of the person with Dementia.

I now have a better understanding of the components of a support system, the need for interdependence on others: family, friends, the church, and the community.
I found the chapter titled Forgiveness and Acceptance especially helpful as it enabled me to look within myself to establish a new kind of relationship with my spouse; by recognizing the reality that I have a choice of accepting our situation or being trapped in a toxic attitude of pity and regret.

Alzheimer’s 911 is a must read for Dementia caregivers, family members and medical professionals. I plan to apply the principles, personally, add the book to my permanent library, make it available to my family members, and to re-read it often.
