Getting REAL About Alzheimer's proposes a shift away from the negative beliefs that contribute to a downward spiral of dementia. A shift is possible, and you can see when it happens. The difference is huge! "Getting REAL" is a reference to Rementia through Engagement, Assistance, and Love. As a guide for family and friends of persons with Alzheimer's as well as for professional caregivers, these pages contain practical solutions in eldercare anyone can apply everyday. Eighteen months after the start of the garden project, a care resident previously consumed by his loss of personhood is found watering and working in the beautiful garden he created. His story of transformation starts this book. From there, Getting REAL About Alzheimer's explains the shift to rementia and the glory of caregiving from the heart.

------------ "I am literally blown away. This book has a wonderful, gentle but clear explanatory tone of sound and experienced reasoning. Empathy, in the truest sense, is glowing from the pages. It is very lucid. It is very well written. I might also have an elevated understanding of the issues, since I worked many years in Swedish hospitals and with the elderly population. I always had a great connection with them. I am reminded of many similar, great and insightful experiences, while I am reading. The anecdotes have brought tears of joy to my eyes. Something big and altruistic is documented with this book." Peter Nilsson, Caregiver
