Joining Joanie: Staying Connected to Your Loved One Through Dementia and Beyond

Do you have a loved one who has been diagnosed with dementia, Alzheimer's disease, or a memory disorder? Are you challenged to find meaningful ways to converse and connect as the memory disorder progresses? Would you like to learn how to cultivate closeness, anticipate changing needs, keep a sense of humor, and live life to its fullest while caring for and loving someone with this disease? If so, then I wrote this book with you in mind. Join me on the journey with Joanie through the twists and turns of her lesser-known dementia. Frontotemporal dementia can develop in individuals as young as their 20s and is often initially misdiagnosed. Using my 20 years of clinical experience working with individuals with cognitive and memory disorders, as well as my personal experience supporting my mother Joanie, I offer nuggets of wisdom and entertaining anecdotes. This book is full of practical advice that can be immediately applied. It also offers a refreshing perspective regarding the importance of self-care and humor to keep you thriving on your journey.
