✏Creating Moments of Joy Along the Alzheimer s Journey Book Summary : The beloved best seller has been revised and expanded for the fifth edition. Jolene Brackey has a vision: that we will soon look beyond the challenges of Alzheimer's disease to focus more of our energies on creating moments of joy. When people have short-term memory loss, their lives are made up of moments. We are not able to create perfectly wonderful days for people with dementia or Alzheimer's, but we can create perfectly wonderful moments, moments that put a smile on their faces and a twinkle in their eyes. Five minutes later, they will not remember what we did or said, but the feeling that we left them with will linger. The new edition of Creating Moments of Joy is filled with more practical advice sprinkled with hope, encouragement, new stories, and generous helpings of humor. In this volume, Brackey reveals that our greatest teacher is having cared for and loved someone with Alzheimer's and that often what we have most to learn about is ourselves.

✏Second Forgetting Book Summary : Charles is 78 years old and there is much he cannot remember. He cannot remember the names of his children, why he lives in a nursing home, or even whether he ate breakfast today. His forgetting causes confusion, and in his fear and uncertainty he sometimes lashes out at those who try to care for him. But when someone reads a favorite Psalm he quickly joins in, reciting each cherished word. When he hears an old hymn of faith, his hand slowly raises and he breathes out each word quietly, his face reflecting a peace that passes all understanding. Alzheimer’s disease has been described as the “defining disease” of the baby boomer generation. Millions of Americans will spend much of their retirement years either caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or experiencing its effects on their lives firsthand. When a person is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, they face great uncertainty, knowing that they can expect to live their remaining years with increasing confusion and progressively greater reliance upon other people to care for them. As the disease advances it seems to overwhelm a person, narrowing their focus and leading them to forget critical truths about the Lord, their life with him, and his promises. Through the personal stories of those affected and the loved ones who care for them, Dr. Benjamin Mast highlights the power of the gospel for those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Filled with helpful, up-to-date information, Dr. Mast answers common questions about the disease and its effect on personal identity and faith as he explores the biblical importance of remembering and God’s commitment to not forget his people. In addition, he gives practical suggestions for how the church can come alongside families and those struggling, offering help and hope to victims of this debilitating disease. If you are a Christian who knows or loves someone with Alzheimer’s disease, have recently been diagnosed with early Alzheimer’s disease, or are a pastor or ministry leader seeking to better understand and minister to people with Alzheimer’s disease this book will encourage you with the good news of God’s faithfulness and the future hope he calls us to.

✏Open a Window Book Summary : Review for Open A Window This book shares what is possible if we allow a person with Alzheimer's to "be" who they are right now. Thank you for "opening" a window, Fay. Jolene Brackey Alzheimer's speaker and author of "Creating Moments Of Joy" This caregiver handbook is designed to help care for people with Alzheimer's disease or other dementia illnesses in the home, hospital, nursing home or home health settings. As a Certified Nurse Aide for fifteen years, I learned with my on the job training how to work with the residents at the nursing home. My ten years of experience helping my mother take care of my father was valuable to my work at the nursing home, and what I learned at the nursing home helped me take care of my father. Until I retired from the nursing home, I was a volunteer on the local Alzheimer's Association Outreach program from 1999 to 2008. I spoke to many groups in my area to educate them about Alzheimer's, and I facilitated an Alzheimer's support group at the nursing home. Because of my efforts I was awarded in 2004 Nurse Aide of the year by the Iowa Health Care Association and in 2006 Excellence for Professional Caregiver Award from the Alzheimer's Association in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
