Did you know that there are 5 million people in the US living with Alzheimer's and by 2050, there are projected to be 14 million? Spreading awareness of Alzheimer's and other types of dementia is desperately needed. There are many more people with these diseases than other diseases that get much more money approved for research from the government or from donations.

This book was written to bring better awareness that people with dementia matter. Plus, the self-sacrificing hardworking caregivers who take care of spouses also matter.

Having a spouse that you have loved for years begin to change because of dementia can be distressing. This book will help you by informing you of 50 or more things that will help reduce many of those scary and stressful feelings, as well as help you be more calm in situations you may be facing such as anger, delusions or misbeliefs, depression, unusual behavior, and more.

Some of the 50 or more things will be lessons learned from the author while she was caring for her husband and the rest will be from different resources. The author, Jessica Dumas, does not claim to be in the medical field but rather has an abundance of knowledge due to the experience of caring for her husband who had vascular dementia for almost five years.
