Moving a Relative & Other Transitions in Dementia Care is an expansion of our original book, Moving a Relative with Memory Loss (2000, 2006). This comprehensive guide is intended to support families from the beginning to the end of the caregiving journey. We are honored to have a panel of experts helping us address many other transitions that families face during the caregiving journey. These include decisions about safety, bringing in home care, preparing for hospitalization and end of life, talking with a relative about giving up driving, moving from out of state and more. A large section of the book is devoted to moving decisions and logistics, incorporating the content of the original book as well as new information. Case studies of real situations are sprinkled throughout the book, along with many practical suggestions. At the end is a comprehensive worksheet to take along with you when you visit residential care homes.
