Alzheimer’s changes almost everything about the way our loved ones perceive the world—and how they respond to it. One of the keys to helping our loved ones continue to live as successfully as possible is to understand this changed, strange world. In this volume you’ll learn more about how Alzheimer’s affects our loved ones—and how those effects typically change the person’s behavior. You’ll also learn successful strategies for “redirecting” that behavior in ways that help your loved one and your family enjoy a better quality of life. Volume two covers:
| • Overview
| • Incontinence
• Inappropriate Actions
Volume 2 | 67 minutes
