The official release of Lisa Skinner’s new book, “Truth, Lies and Alzheimer’s: Its Secret Faces” is here and is now available for purchase on Amazon!
Lisa Skinner, behavioral expert in the field of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, navigates the heartbreaking challenges of having a loved one diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias in her recently revised book, “Truth, Lies and Alzheimer’s: Its Secret Faces”.
Skinner’s book eloquently presents the tools and answers questions family members, spouses, children, caregivers, and others need to effectively manage the symptoms of a degenerative brain disease. Readers of her book feel empowered to work through the difficulties of the disease and return to what matters — enjoying their remaining time with their loved one.
Through a rich trove of stories culled from her years in the eldercare industry, Lisa Skinner offers insight into the difficult questions families face, including:
- How do I respond to a loved one’s false belief?
- Am I abandoning my parent if I place them in the care of professionals?
- How do we make the best of our time left together?
“Very helpful information for anyone going through this. If you’re dealing with a loved one who has Dementia or Alzheimer’s, I highly recommend this book. I particularly enjoyed how easy it was to understand. Because Ms. Skinner shares her years of experience as a behavioral expert in patient stories, she puts the reader directly into any given situation… I wish I had had a resource like this when I was going through the course of my mother-in-law’s Dementia. I wouldn’t have felt so “all-alone” on the battlefield. Bravo Lisa. Thank you for writing this,” says Karen D., a reviewer on Amazon.
