Product Description
Customer Reviews
I was a full time carer to my Dad, who had Lewy Body Dementia. He also had Parkinsons Disease. I have written my true story, from a carers view. Hence the first chapter A week with Mr Lewy Body, followed by an update on Mr Lewy Body, and finally the Final Chapter of Mr Lewy Body.<br /> My aim is to bring awareness to Lewy Body Dementia, and how it effects the sufferer and the carer. This true story was written in the beginning over a week at silly o’ clock , then it followed on over a period of 2 years. Highlighting the high and lows. <br /> This goes out to all the thousands of dementia suffers, regardless of their type of dementia. To all the thousands of carers, many of whom have to cope with this on their own.<br /> More help and understanding is needed for people with dementia. It is not all about money, although there is not enough funding. It’s understanding their needs and how it affects their lives.<br /> We must make sure that when the time comes that they can no longer be cared for at home, and end up in a hospital or a care home, they receive the care and dignity, which should come naturally instead of being ignored, like they don’t exist, or don’t understand. They do.<br /> They are somebody’s parents, they have fought wars, brought up families, have been carers. They should not be let down by our society, and this should not be happening in this day and age.<br />

Autism is a childhood condition ... right? Not right. Children with autism grow into adults with autism. The great strides we have made in understanding childhood autistic behaviors and interventions have lagged dramatically behind the needs of aging autistics. What of the young adult trying to build relationships? What of the middle aged autistic adult who has been misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder and lacks an effective treatment plan? What of the aging adult who is showing increasingly rigid autistic behaviors and is misdiagnosed as having frontotemporal dementia? Understanding Autism in Adults and Aging Adults is a one-of-a-kind resource designed to improve the correct diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder in adults. Filled with clinical stories that bring to life the concepts discussed, the book provides strategy-based interventions to address issues of personal and household management, medical care, communication, sensory processing symptoms, and emotional and behavioral regulation.

Dr. Christiane Northrup’s #1 New York Times bestseller The Wisdom of Menopause has inspired more than a million women with a dramatically new vision of midlife—and will continue to do so for generations to come. As Dr. Northrup has championed, the “change” is not simply a collection of physical symptoms to be “fixed,” but a mind-body revolution that brings the greatest opportunity for growth since adolescence. The choices a woman makes now—from the quality of her relationships to the quality of her diet—have the power to secure vibrant health and well-being for the rest of her life. Now completely revised, this groundbreaking classic draws on the current research and medical advances in women’s health, and includes: a new section on sex after 50—and how, if need be, you can rejuvenate your sex life; updated mammogram guidelines—and how thermography improves breast health; the latest on the glycemic index, optimal blood sugar levels, and ways to prevent diabetes; dietary guidelines revealing that hidden sugar—not dietary fat—is the main culprit in heart disease, cancer, and obesity; all you need to know about perimenopause and why it’s critical to your well-being; a vital program for ensuring pelvic health during and after menopause; and strategies to combat osteoporosis and strengthen bones for life. With this trusted resource, Dr. Christiane Northrup shows that women can make menopause a time of personal empowerment—emerging wiser, healthier, and stronger in both mind and body than ever before.
