The Caregiver’s Voice Review: 15 Minutes of Fame







Tryn Rose Seley’s 15 Minutes of Fame is wisdom delivered elegantly. 

The best ideas are often so simple we knock ourselves on the head and ask, “Why didn’t I think of that?”

Well, professional caregiver, photographer, and musician, Tryn Rose Seley did think of it in her attractive book, 15 Minutes of Fame (Empowering Caregivers of those with Alzheimer’s).

Seley has spent her life with people who need care, from her early childhood with her brother to caregiving in private homes and care communities. Seley has developed simple techniques that transform the cognitively impaired person’s anger and discomfort into peace and acceptance.

How does she do it?

In her introductory remarks, Seley writes:

As a caregiver, I share one photo, one song, or one story about that person’s life
every day, all day, whatever we’re doing.

That’s all? Just one photo?  One song? One story?

When you read her book, you realize how in 15 minutes she brings people back to terra firma or “solid ground.”

She explains why this technique works and why it’s important for  both the caregiver and care recipient.

Want a hint?

In the fast-flowing river of life–sometimes all it takes is one person who will take a few moments to connect with another, meaningfully.

This beautifully crafted book makes a delightful gift for the holidays or anytime of the year.
