From the Author:

Home is where most people prefer to remain.
The decision to care for a loved one with Alzheimer's disease at home is both a rewarding and difficult challenge.

Few caregivers realize the behavioral and cognitive issues that accompanies Alzheimer's disease. While writing this book it became profoundly apparent how important it was for caregivers to learn all that they could about the disease, in order to anticipate, plan for, and deal with issues they are likely to encounter. This self-taught education safe and supportive home environment, responsive to the unique needs of someone with Alzheimer's disease.

The Complete Guide to Alzheimer's-Proofing Your Home leads the reader through each behavioral, cognitive and activity of daily living issue that might be encountered. This book is full of ideas and products for hiding and rummaging, wandering, incontinence and much more. It offers simple answers to difficult problems, where modifications, environmental strategies or products can contribute to the caregiving process - and it tells you where to get them. The book also includes a glossary to help anyone, from the medical professional to the home caregiver, understand terms that they may encounter.

Years were dedicated to researching Alzheimer's disease, the problems caregivers face and developing solutions those caring for a family member at home need to know. Suggestions come from my own experience, caregivers, healthcare professionals and Alzheimer's experts, all of whom generously provided crucial information on the most important issues.

Most of all, The Complete Guide to Alzheimer's-Proofing Your Home provides insight and a helping hand to those embarking on a loving and unselfish journey. I regard caregivers as "modern-day heroes" and this book is for you. It is intended to provide you with a wealth of information, never offered before, to make your job easier and enhance the quality of life for you and your loved one.

My best wishes to all of you.

Mark Warner
