Are you caring for a loved one with dementia and don’t know where to begin? Here are the answers you have been searching for.
Jane Hardy writes frankly about the experiences she and her Mum have shared over the past four years, the lessons she's learned, the things she wished she’d known before they started this journey together. Jane's Mum Beth was diagnosed with Vascular Dementia and Alzheimers with a score of 16 (moderate/severe dementia) at the age of 90. Four years later, she has a score of 20+, is enjoying life and her memory and humour are returning!
Her GP cannot believe her improvement. She is stronger and healthier, has a positive outlook on life and can read and write again.
If you are dealing with a loved one with Dementia, Jane's experiences and strategies will help you avoid the same mistakes that she made! This journey is not for the faint hearted. But focus on what we can be done, rather than what the others say can't be done. For Jane and her Mum, small steps have led to huge strides.
First and foremost, Jane Hardy is quite simply just a daughter who loves her Mum. For the last four years she has devoted herself to caring for a mother with moderate Dementia and Alzheimers. Four years ago her Mum, Beth, was sad, doubly incontinent, scared and very low. In Pink Slippers, Jane shares the laughter, tears and all the things she's learned as she's brought her back from the edge of disappearing altogether. Today Beth is happy, secure and loved. She enjoys her life and is having fun and her memory has vastly improved, as has her quality of life. Jane is also the founder and director of business networking company Fabulous Networking.
