The IOC is pleased to share books authored by our Fellows and Sponsors.

Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia can be devastating--not just for the patients themselves but for family and friends who watch a loved one deteriorate. Drawing on her deep compassion for caregivers 25 years of experience as a physician and her expertise in mindfulness and Positive Psychology Dr. Gail Gazelle provides healing and uplifting counsel and advice for those caring for a loved one with any form of dementia.

In this easy-to-read book of short weekly entries followed by simple mindfulness and Positive Psychology exercises you'll find practical tips for taking care of yourself--and making sure you have the support to meet your own basic needs as well as those of your loved one. You'll also find a wealth of positive affirmations and advice to help you keep a healthy sane and calm outlook during this difficult time. A former Alzheimer's caregiver herself Dr. Gazelle understands the unique challenges and stressors of caring for those with dementia first-hand--and her advice is crucial for caregivers at any stage of the illness.
