Angela Gentile's Book CoverA dementia diagnosis can frighten and devastate all who are affected. When a husband is diagnosed with dementia, his wife is at risk of becoming the “hidden patient.” Sometimes the responsibilities of caring for a husband with dementia causes stress leading to caregiver burnout. Caregiving wives may feel trapped, obligated or compelled to go it alone at the expense of their own well-being. Others find many rewards in caring and give of themselves to a fault – “until death do us part.” Asking for help can be difficult for caregivers, for many reasons.

Gaining knowledge about dementia and its emotional impacts can provide comfort and improve confidence. Practical tips and solutions can offer hope in challenging situations. This survival guide and workbook is a vital companion for caregivers. You will refer to “Caring for a Husband with Dementia” often on your caregiving journey.

Available on Amazon.com in print ($15.95 USD) and Kindle ($3.99 USD).
There is also a mobile app, “Dementia Caregiver Solutions”, available at the iTunes App Store ($4.99 USD). It contains the information found in Chapter 14 in the book, on “Coping with Difficult Behaviours.”
