  • When Someone You Love Has Dementia

    Susan Elliot-Wright

    Product Code: AYNGH
    Paperback
    Dementia affects more than 700,000 people in the UK; Alzheimer's is the most common cause of dementia, affecting around 417,000 people in the UK and some four million in the USA. While dementia affects mostly older people, some 17,000 young people also have dementia in the UK. There are treatments, but no cure. Caring for people with dementia is a well-recognized burden, but recently there have been moves to represent this in a more positive light, emphasising people with dementia as individuals who deserve respect, rather than as the challenge as which they have traditionally been viewed. Nevertheless, for individual carers without enough support, having a loved one with dementia often remains challenging. This book looks at practicalities and relationships, including: Defining Alzheimer's and other dementias; Diagnosis; After diagnosis; planning for the future; Medications to help with symptoms such as memory problems, wandering, and aggressive behavior; Other therapies such as music therapy; Practicalities: coping with strange behaviour, confusion, memory problems. Outside help and services and how to access them; Later stages of dementia; issues to consider such as residential care, financial arrangements, wills and living wills and coping with being a carer.

  • Overcoming Emotional Abuse

    Susan Elliot-Wright

    Product Code: AYMHW
    Paperback
    Many women assume that abuse is always physical. But this is not always the case. Psychological, verbal and emotional abuse may not cause broken bones or black eyes, but when one person persistently inflicts sever mental pain on another by the use of fear, intimidation, humiliation and manipulation, the damage can be just as serious. The resulting deep emotional scars may take years to recover from. Susan Elliot-Wright explores the nature of this often subtle manipulative behaviour and what can be done to break the cycle. As well as offering emotional support, the author looks at the practicalities that may be involved, such as consulting a solicitor or gaining access to benefits. Subjects covered include: types of emotional abuse; who may be a victim, and why; how to protect yourself and any children; sources of help such as women's refuges; can an abusive relationship survive?; helping the abuser; forming a new life.
