John du Preez has Alzheimer's Disease. He has written a Diary. You really need to read his book to understand how it is for a person who suffers with Alzheimers.
It is truly NO JOKE!
John du Preez has given the world a great gift. He has shared his private life with us. His frustrations, his joys, his ups and his downs. By reading his book Alzheimer's Disease My Diary, you will get a better understanding behind the unusual behaviour of your loved one suffering from Alzheimer's.
In the initial phases of Alzheimer's, small irritations can become huge. Something that will not bother the rest of us, can drive the Alzheimer's sufferer into a state of panic. When we then see our loved one acting irrationally, we can get angry, we can get nasty or we can get upset - BUT, if we understand that our loved one is actually sick, we can sympathise and try and help them to deal with the irritation.
When we read John's book we will have a better understanding of what our loved one is feeling and so we can better care for them. That is why Alzheimers Disease My Diary is an INVALUABLE BOOK for the person involved in caring for an Alzheimer's sufferer.
Get to know the frustrations of your Alzheimer's patient. Understand why the sufferer acts like they do. When they snap at you, or get angry about small things, you will better understand the internal frustrations the person is battling. And you will be able to better care for the Alzheimer Sufferer.
Alzheimer's Disease My Diary - Journey of Hope will help you understand the Alzheimer's sufferer's insecurities. In The Diary John shares the fears these sick people feel. The fear of embarrassment, the fear of rejection, the fear of improper care. Many sufferers will not be able to express themselves for many reasons, and that is why John's book is so WONDERFUL. It helps us understand our sufferer better, and so we are better able to care for them.
How to COPE when you have Alzheimers. How does the sufferer himself cope? John shares some strategies to help the sufferer deal with that. With the insight he has, as a sufferer himself, it is invaluable information for anyone dealing at all with Alzheimers.
Read his ebook and improve your own understanding of Alzheimers for the sake of the sufferer. And the Alzheimers sufferer himself will know what he will go through in his walk with the disease when he reads this book.
The progression of Alzheimers, and the obvious pattern the disease follows is a very frightening. Read John's book and as a sufferer you better be able to cope with what lies ahead. (also read his book Alzheimer's Disease My Story)
