Join us as we celebrate the release of Jane S. Foy’s book, The A to Z Guide for Primary Caregivers of Dementia Patients. A signing will follow. This event will be free and open to the public.
The A to Z Guide for Primary Caregivers of Dementia Patients is a collection of helpful hints based on real-life experiences. Living with and caring for a dementia patient is not easy, but this book will make the “road less bumpy.” The guide puts special emphasis on caring for the caregiver: from hairdresser appointments to finding your own “down” time. Ultimately, it’s a guide to help the caregiver get the most joy out of their time with their loved one.
