Book Description

Sept. 9 2013
Confidence to Care is the essential handbook for the family caregiver offering practical insights to understanding, managing and preventing the behavioural symptoms associated with dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Touching, personal stories come together with practical and easy-to-access tips and techniques drawn from decades of caregiving experience by internationally-recognized experts. This cutting-edge resource will help the family caregiver confidently deal with the most common issues associated with dementia. In addition, advice about how to care for yourself while caring for others is essential.
The number of people worldwide living with dementia illnesses such as Alzheimer's disease is set to nearly double every 20 years, reaching 65.7 million in 2030 and 115.4 million in 2050, according to Alzheimer's Disease International (ADI). Though research continues, there is currently no cure for Alzheimer's disease. But until there is a cure, there is care. Confidence to Care includes chapters offering caregiving strategies and recommends other resources for the family caregiver. This book is the most practical dementia care tool available and unique in its content and presentation.

About the Author

Author, speaker, trainer and family caregiver. Molly Carpenter, M.A., brings years of personal and professional senior care experience and training to families dealing with dementia care. Her passionate interest in older adults started early - as a high school student working in an adult day care program - and continues as an adult and a professional. The reality of caregiving is never far from her experience due to her work in skilled nursing facilities, adult day care centers and continuum of care communities.
In her current role, Carpenter works with a team responsible for ensuring that the Home Instead Senior Care® network's 60,000 caregivers worldwide have the resources necessary to effectively provide quality care in the home and understand the importance of their work enhancing the lives of those they serve. This combined background makes her uniquely qualified to author a book designed specifically to help family caregivers provide care to those with dementia in the home.
Carpenter's work as part of the team that developed a person-centered approach to Alzheimer's care has been adopted and adapted globally and is critical to the success of the Home Instead care approach for people with Alzheimer's and dementia. This work has been endorsed by leading experts in the Alzheimer's industry and adapted for family caregivers throughout the world.
Carpenter holds a Bachelor of Science degree in family science with a gerontology specialization from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and a master's degree in education with a gerontology specialization from the University of Nebraska-Omaha. She is currently enrolled in the Human Sciences/Gerontology & Ph.D. program at the University of Nebraska-Omaha. Her personal experiences helping to care for her grandmothers have further inspired her career.
