As we prepare for the holidays, it’s a good time for carers to consider how your support system is functioning, how to deal with changes that may occur as dementia progresses, and most importantly, how you, as the carer, are coping.

For the December Pick of the Month, the Dementia Australia Librarians have chosen Caring for a Loved One with Dementia by Marguerite Manteau-Rao. This e-book offers a compassionate and effective mindfulness-based dementia care guide to help you reduce stress, stay balanced, and bring ease into your interactions with the person living with dementia so you can find strength and meaning in each moment you spend with your loved one.

For this and other resources to support you through the holidays, visit our Library Guide at
