Insightful Handbook for Alzheimer's Caregivers
Date:7/10/2009

HARKER HEIGHTS, Texas, July 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Growing in the number of those afflicted, Alzheimer's takes more loved ones every year. In the new guidebook for caregivers, "Alzheimer's Days Gone By: For Those Caring For Their Loved Ones" (published by AuthorHouse), Deanna Lueckenotte weaves a heartfelt mix of personal experience and sound advice on a myriad of topics related to the care of loved ones during the descent into dementia.

Concise, insightful and effortlessly readable, Lueckenotte purposefully leaves out the clinical underpinnings of Alzheimer's and instead focuses on creating a "compass to help the caregiver find what 'tool' they are looking for at that very moment." Covering a variety of issues and concerns that can arise at any moment on any day along an Alzheimer's caregiver's journey, "Alzheimer's Days Gone By" includes topics on how to take care of yourself, common behaviors, communicating, research, an overview of dementia, home safety, a holiday survival guide, external resources, daily activities and much more.

Overflowing with valuable information, "Alzheimer's Days Gone By" also offers advice on the overlooked aspects of caregiving, included in chapters like "Forget me Knots," discussing topics of driving, sexual issues, funeral home arrangements and lifestyle enhancement. The area of lifestyle enhancement is neglected by other books within the genre because of the assumption that the caregiver is unable to assess the patient's quality of life or improve it. Lueckenotte dispels this notion and elaborates upon different areas in which readers can improve their loved ones' quality of life in a failure-free environment. Lastly, chapters like "Light in the Tunnel" feature a compilation of touching stories that any reader will relate to and benefit from reading.

Ideal for caregivers, nursing students, paramedics and pastors, "Alzheimer's Days Gone By" arms readers with the tools they need to survive their caregiving journey and not lose sight of the light at the end of the tunnel. Motivated to learn more about the disease when her grandmother developed dementia during the '90s, when relatively little was known about Alzheimer's, Lueckenotte gives readers the information they need to face the disease with strength and courage.

Deanna Lueckenotte received her bachelor's degree in psychology from University of North Texas in Denton and plans to continue her education and pursue opportunities in the geriatric field. She has spent nine years working with patients in long term care, receiving her social work license, assisted living certification and license for work as a nursing facility administrator. She works closely with Alzheimer's patients and caregivers and currently works as an executive director of an Alzheimer's assisted living center in central Texas. She and her husband, Bryan, have a 10-year-old son, Taylor, and two Labrador Retrievers.
