The demands of caregiving can leave us feeling depleted and sad. A new book from Tryn Rose Seley, 15 Minutes of Fame: One Photo Does Wonders to Bring You Both Back to Solid Ground provides some ideas on how to raise your effectiveness and lower your frustration if you are caring for a relative or others who have dementia.

In the book, Tryn says: “As a caregiver, I share one photo, one song, one story about that person’s life every day, all day, whatever we’re doing. I wrote this book because I want to empower you to do the same.” The book has stories about people she has worked with and what she’s learned, along with photos and illustrations to give you ideas on how to deal with the frustrations of working with someone who might not remember a conversation that you had five minutes ago, but remembers people, stories, and talents from the past. Read more…

Take care, and stay in touch,
