Publisher Comments:

A glass-half-full look at Alzheimeras that reveals how to connect with someone through the fog of the disease.

As many as five million Americans are living with Alzheimeras. The popular perception of the disease is that people who receive an Alzheimeras diagnosis are lost to themselves and to those who love themaand that they have no future.

The disease often lasts ten to fifteen yearsaa time span that definitely constitutes a future. In Iam Still Here, Zeisel shows that during the course of Alzheimeras, caregivers can have a vibrant and meaningful relationship with people who have the disease.

Iam Still Here focuses on connecting with individuals with Alzheimeras through their abilities that donat diminish with time, such as understanding music, art, facial expressions, and touch. Zeisel demonstrates that people who have the disease are highly creative and emotionally intelligent. By harnessing these capacities, and by using other approaches to treatmentasuch as building memory cues into their living environment, which encourages independent movement and helps eliminate sources of frustrationaitas possible to offer them a quality life with connection to others and to the world.
