The more I understand how everyday situations can potentially affect my memory-impaired father, the better prepared I am to minimize his confusion and respond well to him in his confusion. "The Complete Guide To Alzheimer's Proofing Your Home" by Mark L. Warner prepared me for this unexpected season of my life.
This book is an excellent resource with practical suggestions and listing of helpful items and where they can be purchased. Many suggestions do not require a purchase; they are simple changes, such as adjusting the air vents to not blow on the curtains, which may cause one to think there is someone hiding behind them. Or, adhering colored tape (painters tape) to the floor to direct a path to the bathroom. In this book, you will discover small ways to consider your loved one as they journey this path within themselves.
