Product Description

About the Author

Jolene Brackey began her career as an interior designer after graduating from Iowa State University. But she soon realized that she derived great joy from helping people improve the interiors of their lives, rather than their homes. When she left her interior design job, the first job available was in an Alzheimer' special care unit as an activity director. She didn't know what Alzheimer's was but she knew she liked older people. Before long, she realized that God had given her a gift. She found ways to create positive outcomes and moments of joy for the individuals with the disease, their loved ones, and professional caregivers. Eager to share her practical solutions and insights, Jolene began speaking at educational seminars. Her message of hope, encouragement-along with generous helpings of humor-was warmly embraced by family members and professional caregivers alike. So, she established a business, Enhanced Moments, to help guide people through the Alzheimer's journey. Jolene and her husband, Troy, live in Polson, Montana with their children Sidney, Taylor, and Keegan.

I bought this book for my wife, whose Mother, about to turn 90, who has always had a very bright, quick and extensive memory has suffered a fast deterioration in memory. She has relied very heavily on her memory because she has been "legally" blind from birth and over the years her signt has been failing at a slow rate, but significant at this point. She lives alone in a very pleasant apartment and intends to remain there. My wife has taken over much of her care on a daily basis and she has found this book invaluable for understanding the situation but also the support for her, dealing with this difficult situation. I have read through it as well and find it very well written, clear and supportive and recommend it without hesitation to anyone in a similar situation.

When most of us deal with a loved one in the throws of dementia, we try to re-educate, and in the course of that misguided effort we bring suffering to loved ones who are not ever going to get better. This book is not just for professional or family care-givers dealing with dementia patients, it's for everyone who has a loved one caught in this horrible final phase of life.
Putting her experience into play, Brackey teaches all of us the means by which we can bring joy, and simple happy moments, instead of inflicting pain through our misguided intentions. This book gives everyone involved with a dementia patient, the tools to bring happiness to loved ones with the disease. If you know someone struggling to deal with this horrific problem, and failing, then this is the book to buy them for Xmas. This book helps the patient, but even more important, it empowers the loved ones of the dementia patient with the tools to bring happiness to a mind that is fading to black, long before the body quits.

My mother has Alzheimer's Disease, and will soon be going into Care. Right now my 92 year old father is still trying to care for her at home. As hard as it is for the family, he deals with the day-to-day challenges. I did a quick read of the book, underlining what might be of help to him. He read the highlights, and then went back for more. If this can help a 92 year old, then I expect you can't go wrong.
