I Care: A Handbook for Care Partners of People with Dementia

No book review in over a year ≠ no books read in over a year. However, none have truly moved me enough to write about them… until I Care: A Handbook for Care Partners of People with Dementia. Though well over 100 pages, I Care is a quick, easy, engaging read that I honestly couldn’t put down. Its co-authors are well known in the field and offer not only insight and guidance, but also real-life stories of caregivers navigating the world of dementia.

One of my favorite things about I Care is the way the authors explain dementia and exactly how it can affect various parts of the brain. They’ve written in a manner that is both informative and easily understood. An awesome analogy, for example:

“[the brain] is a communication network, with neurons being the computers and phones, and the axons and dendrites being the wires and radio signals that allow them to share information.”

Why didn’t our bio professors explain it this way?! Find I Care on Amazon here.
