A glass-half-full look at Alzheimer's that reveals how to connect with someone through the fog of the disease
As many as five million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease, and people often live with it for more than a decade. During that time, caregivers can have a vibrant and meaningful relationship with the person who suffers from the disease.
I'm Still Here focuses on connecting with someone with Alzheimer's through their abilities that don't diminish with time, such as understanding music, art, facial expressions, and touch. John Zeisel, an innovator in non-pharmacologic approaches to treating Alzheimer's, shows that people with the disease are highly creative and emotionally intelligent. By harnessing these capacities, and by using other strategies, it's possible to offer the person a quality life with connection to others and to the world.
