What does it take to be a friend to a person with Alzheimer's disease? All the same ingredients that go into any good friendship: mutual respect, affection, understanding, and support. It means sharing time, feelings, memories, and new experiences. It's not hard. It's our nature.

Amidst the many challenges and faces of this disease, The Best Friends Approach to Alzheimer's Care shows how easily you can make a difference in the life of a family member or client in your care.

Here's the help you've been looking for:
  • Families will gain a renewed sense of hope.
  • Nursing facility staff will find simple applications for resident care.

  • Individuals with emerging Alzheimer's disease will gain valuable insights.
In these pages, learn new ways to solve problems, encourage positive behaviour, and improve communications. Make every day consistently reassuring, enjoyable, and secure. Be a friend - a Best Friend - to someone with Alzheimer's disease. It will change that person's life...and yours!
