If you have a loved one in the middle or late stages of Alzheimer's disease, you know how frustrating and difficult it can be to communicate. This is especially the case when your loved one experiences dementia. But it's not impossible to maintain a real relationship with your friend or family member, even as his or her Alzheimer's advances.

In more than sixteen years of work with Alzheimer's patients and their families, author Judith London has learned how to 'connect the dots' of scattered information offered by people with Alzheimer's so that loved ones can understand the depth of feeling still present in them. Connecting the Dots reveals London's practical techniques for decoding the language of Alzheimer's to improve communication. With this book as your guide, you can better navigate your relationship with your loved one and keep a meaningful connection.

Although there is no cure for Alzheimer's,this book will help you improve your loved one's quality of life.
