it was amazing

Dr. Powell's experience with dementia goes beyond what she has seen in her office as a psychiatrist and into the personal since her mother and grandmother both had dementia. This gives her a unique perspective on treating the disease. As she points out, dementia is fatal and cannot be cured. Slowed down a bit perhaps but not cured. So, how to we take care of people with the disease? By enabling them to live as full and joy filled life as we can help them to do. Her thoughts follow along with Dr. Atul Gawande's as he expresses them in Being Mortal. Both of these authors point toward the value of palliative care in caring for fatal diseases. And toward the value of the love and support of members of the patient's families and friends.
This is a must read for those caring for people with dementia. Another excellent read is The 36 Hour Day.
