Chris B5 Stars Out Of 5Extremely helpful resourceMay 25, 2017Chris BQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This Quick Reference Guide is just that - basic information that you need when you have a very limited time to learn as much as you can about memory loss. I appreciated the detailed examples of some possible signs of Alzheimer's and the encouraging Scriptures for both patients and caregivers. It's very frightening and frustrating when a loved one begins forgetting things. Personally, I thought that my spouse was just being lazy because he suddenly couldn't remember how to use a computer (something he's done for years) and wanted me to type everything for him. He constantly asks, "who is that?" for people he's known for years. Our children get tired of answering the same questions over and over. Reading through this guide, I was able to gain a better understanding of some of what he's experiencing and some insight into what changes we may be facing in the future. The guide also gives suggestions for ways to create joyful memories with someone suffering from memory loss. And I always like the "What Not to Do" advice because frankly, I just don't know enough to know what not to do! Overall, I recommend this helpful guide to anyone who may be experiencing memory loss in themselves or a loved one and for those who want to develop a ministry to helping patients and caregivers. I was provided a copy of this pamphlet in pdf format and all opinions are 100% my own.
Ann5 Stars Out Of 5Very helpful, good valueMarch 31, 2017AnnQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Since my parents have died, I have developed a widows ministry of sorts. With my online grocery pick-up, it is not trouble to shop for the ladies at the local assisted living facility. One dear friend of mine cannot remember my visits, so I bought a large calendar and ask visitors to sign in when they come. This pamphlet is very useful in knowing how to react to memory loss and dementia patients. Information on the stages of Alzheimers disease can be helpful in detecting symptoms early on. The statistics on the disease and the average life span were new facts to me. There were some very good suggestions on how to create precious memories. The What not to do list has educated me on the things I was doing that were not helpful. I loved the bible verses of hope and promise. This is a nicely done reference guide with stories of real people and their care givers. This pdf was given to me by Rose Publising for an honest review.
RT23 Stars Out Of 5Basic information and helpDecember 19, 2016RT2Quality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I was given this pamphlet for the purpose of reviewing. It is a good resource for someone just becoming introduced to the hurts and anguish of those experiencing or walking alongside someone dealing with memory loss. It is not a comprehensive in-depth guide for walking or helping friends and loved ones. There are good resources listed at the end of the pamphlet which will guide those needing additional help in understanding and helping others. This specific pamphlet is part of a new series by Joni Eareckson Tada designed to work alongside the Beyond Suffering Bible recently released.
The description of the stages of memory loss and what to expect is well laid out, easy to understand and helpful in knowing what to expect and how to react. Scripture verses are given throughout for use in comforting the hurting.
Too many times, when we dont know what to say or what can be done we avoid the situations and those hurting. This pamphlet does an excellent job of helping alleviate these concerns so we can engage, walk along and converse with those who are hurting so deeply.
