Short & Simple

Creating Moments...was recommended to me by Amy, a Nurse Practitioner of my Fathers. She would ask whenever she'd see me "Did you order the book yet?" & between being a master of procrastination & being the sole care taker of my Dad, even my best intentions never seems to come full circle. One night my phone rang & it was Amy asking again if I ordered the book, it just happened to be on her mind!!!! Well I immediately went on line and thought "this better be a great book" for all the bothering from her. Giving it 5 stars barely does it justice but thats the highest the scale goes. I love it because one minute you are learning something serious & the next you are laughing so hard at the stories Jolene has sprinkled through out the book. Order it (when you get a chance!) Care takers and family members alike will enjoy and be informed. Take Amy's word for it!! :-)

A must-read for everyone connected to the disease!

This book is absolutely the best I have read regarding the disease. I am a care-giver. The insights into the disease, how to make the best of it for you and for them is invaluable. You can create moments of joy for everyone. Tips and tricks are sensational. I will read it again and again as the disease progresses. I just can't recommend it enough.

A ray of sunshine and hope

Through tears of joy I read the first pages of "Creating Moments of Joy", a journal of hope and joy. This is a must read for families who have loved ones with Alzheimers. Jolene gives us such sensible answers about the mysteries of this disease and helps us to realize where our Alzheimer patients are coming from and how we can calm their fears and give them mements of joy. This is such a confusing illness to the patient and the caregivers, and the author provides concrete examples and illustrations of how to make precious memories and moments of joy for the entire family. Thank you so much for such a wonderful book.....the best I have read of this subject.

Wonderful book

By giving you an understanding of how the person with alzheimers views their world, this book helps the caregiver make life a little easier, happier, and more meaningful. It also reduces the stress and frustration of the caregiver because you gain knowledge of how to handle situations that before were a struggle.

Excellent for anyone touched by dementia

Jolene Brackey spoke at the nursing home where I work with patients with dementia. She is an incredible speaker and author. This book has so many wonderful ideas for nursing home workers and people who have loved ones with dementia. It is very reader-friendly and easy to understand. Jolene includes many real life examples to illustrate her ideas. She has a sense of humor and a sense of compassion that radiates with every chapter. I've used her ideas and had amazing success in my job. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn how to appreciate people with dementia.
