Book Description:

HOW TO COMMUNICATE WITH A LOVED ONE WITH COGNITIVE DECLINE

New book teaches skills and practical tips on how to connect and communicate with a person with Alzheimer’s or Dementia

PHOENIX, Ariz. – Despite the excitement of a new Alzheimer’s drug coming to the market, family members and caregivers living with someone with cognitive decline face the downward slide in engagement and comprehension every day.

There are several books on Alzheimer’s written by doctors, nurses, and even caregivers. However, there are very few books written by a family member who has lived through years of Alzheimer’s decisions, emotions, frustrations, and sadness and wants to share their story. Pam Ostrowski is the author of It’s Not That Simple: Helping Families Navigate the Alzheimer’s Journey, a guidebook for family members with a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia.

Ostrowski started her journey with her parents in 2001, with little knowledge of the impact Alzheimer’s would have on their lives over the next 14 years. This guidebook provides practical tips, coping tools for caring for those with Alzheimer’s, and conversation starters for those difficult talks you’ll have with your loved one and siblings. This knowledge allows you to anticipate and prepare for the future and reduces frustration, burnout, and compassion fatigue.

“Your support role and responsibilities over these years are critical to all concerned. This book will help you make the best personal, logistical, medical, and emotional decisions for you and your loved one. You will learn how to communicate with the person suffering through this disease, handle disagreements so they result in positive outcomes, and understand the stages and behaviors of Alzheimer’s disease. The more knowledge you have, the easier it will be to care for your loved one and offer support to everyone involved,” states Pam Ostrowski.

“This knowledge allows you to anticipate and prepare for the future and reduces frustration, burnout, and compassion fatigue. Being a caregiver can be a transformational experience. This book provides a way to look at this journey a bit differently, not as a list of challenges, but as a way to expand your heart and transform the way you treat others. It provides examples on how to embrace the best mindset for dealing with this long-term disease, “states Pam Ostrowski, who is a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA)®, Certified Dementia Practitioner® (CDP ®), and Dementia Care Certified® (CDC ®).

Pam kicks off her book tour and shares her personal story with a presentation on, “How to communicate with a loved one with cognitive decline”, at The Summit at Sunland Springs on Saturday, July 10, 2021, 3370 10am-11:30am. Registration in advance and book signing to follow.
