Product Description

Review

'My wife ... died of Alzheimer’s after a seven year illness, so I am familiar with the situation so masterfully set out in John Zeisel’s book. It is certainly the best book yet written about the predicament of Alzheimer’s patients and carers." --Professor John Bailey, CBE

"[T]o anyone living with a loved one who has Alzheimer’s, read this book, re-read i,; keep it for daily reference. It will change more lives than just yours." --John Suchet

"This book rages with an optimism and determination to champion the cause of sufferer and carer alike[.] .... This should be required reading for anyone with an ambition to create the future. It is both a clarion call and a cautionary tale from a gifted narrator blazing with humanity." --Tim Smit, CBE, chief executive and co-founder of The Eden Project --This text refers to the Perfect Paperback edition.

I am always looking for information on helping people Living With Alzheimer's. Up until now the best book was by Graham Stokes "and still the music plays" Johns book adds a new dimension of help and understanding the disease, full of understanding, optimism and hope. This is a must read book, for all those wishing to gain a paradime shift in viewing what appears a hopeless situation.
I could write much more but sincerely would be wasting you time that could be better spent ordering the book and reading it, don't delay buy it now.
I am now going to re read and still the music plays because I believe it will allow even greater appreciation of that work.
Good luck it will help you greatlyI'm Still Here: A Breakthrough Approach to Understanding Someone Living with Alzheimer'sAnd Still the Music Plays: Stories of People with Dementia

It made me feel inadequate in the way I am dealing with my husband's illness. It did not take into consideration any physical problems a person may have as well .

These books tend to expect carers to have a " core team" helping them, when in reality lots of carers are struggling through on their own.

I have not finished the book yet, I am determined to read right through and hopefully glean something from it apart from this sense that I am failing.

An interesting book, but the ideas put forward are not applicable to everybody. However it does encourage people to seek new ways of coping with loved ones with dementia, and making life more worthwhile for both patient and carer. Definitely worth reading,but don't be disappointed if a lot of it does not fit your situation.

quite a deep book - makes interesting reading for those who search a deeper understanding of the minds of those with dementia - the knowledge gained is helpful in coping and supporting someone who has been changed, but it 'still there'

well written, easy to follow, very useful and comforting for any carer. Many situations well illustrated, the author really knows how to share his experience. As a carer, I felt I was on familiar ground and reassured I was having the right attitude, but I learned so much too, which was the objective

I found the first 1/3rd and last 1/3rd really helpful. Middle part more suited to owners of care homes - still worth reading as some useful ideas in there.
