Dementia with Dignity: Living Well with Alzheimer’s or Dementia Using the DAWN Method
Dementia with Dignity is the revolutionary how-to guidebook that details ways to make it easier to provide dementia home care for people experiencing Alzheimer’s or dementia and postpone the expense of long-term care.
Wouldn’t dementia care be easier if you could get on the same page as your loved one? When we understand what someone experiencing dementia is going through, we can truly help them enjoy more peace and security at home. This book will help you recognize the unmet emotional needs that are causing problems, giving you a better understanding and ability to address them.
Listen to Judy discuss why she wrote the book, Dementia with Dignity on Alzheimer’s Speaks with Lori La Bey [aired live on March 5, 2019].
“Even though people experiencing dementia become unable to recall or recount what is happening to them, they still have the experiences. The psychological present lasts about three seconds. Their moods and actions are expressions of their experiences in the present.”

Someone is diagnosed with dementia every 66 seconds. By 2030, the rate will be someone every 33 seconds.
Paying for home care is expensive, but the cost of institutional care is astronomical—over $92,000/year in 2016. We need to learn how to provide effective dementia care at home. This book equips families to do so.
