Rabins One-on-One: Tips for Alzheimer’s Family Caregivers
Not every family is fortunate enough to have the opportunity to receive direct care from Dr. Peter Rabins. Now they do as this DVD brings to each family, the suggestions and guidelines which Dr. Rabins has developed working with caregivers over many years. While each family has a unique set of circumstances, some areas seem to always present challenges. Divided into 5 chapters, this DVD responds to these nearly universal challenges. Speaking with family caregivers, Dr. Rabins discusses: how to respond to caregiver guilt; learning not to argue; issues with dressing and bathing; strategies for discontinuing driving; and knowing when to consider the option of assisted living or a nursing home.
The positive suggestions will be of value to all family members. For the primary caregiver, the strategies discussed will minimize frustration and caregiver stress. Caregiver comments also provide emotional support communicating a shared sense of understanding possible only by living the experience of Alzheimer’s disease. Finally caregivers share their personal reward of providing care.
