Summary As a Memory Care Director, Keith Galas has spent close to 20 years helping families work through the often heart-wrenching questions generated by a loved one's diagnosis with dementia. What do I do now? Who will take care of Mom? How much will it cost for her care? How can I keep her safe? In Parental Dementia: A Guide Through All the Difficult Questions, he guides your family through the uncertainty and anguish that accompanies a dementia or Alzheimer's diagnosis. Dementia cases are on the rise. Roughly 10 percent of those over the age of 65 in the United States have Alzheimer's, and it is the sixth leading cause of death, according to the Alzheimer's Association. There are more than 5 million Americans currently living with dementia. Unless a cure is found, as many as 16 million Americans could have dementia by 2050. Globally there are 50 million estimated dementia cases and, to that number, 10 million are added annually. If you are about to embark on the road of caring for a loved one with dementia, you can be assured that you are not alone. Millions of family members have faced the same questions you may now be asking, and Parental Dementia: A Guide Through All the Difficult Questions will help you answer them. Including anecdotes both from a daughter's journey with parental dementia and Keith's own experience helping dementia families, it aims to help you understand that there is a way through this difficult time. No matter your life situation, it will serve as a roadmap through the arduous journey upon which you are about to embark and leave you with the tools-and the hope-to provide your loved ones with the care they need.
