PRLog - Jun. 24, 2014 - Moving Mama: Taking Care of Mother During her Final Years with Alzheimer's, called a “must read” by reviewers, receives a rave review on World's Best Selling Books.

Santa Fe, New Mexico based health planning consultant, Anne Hays Egan’s book has been making waves. Moving Mama: Taking Care of Mother During her Final Years with Alzheimer's just received a rave review on World's Best Selling Books.

"World's Best Selling Books" reports that Moving Mama is a practical resource for people caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease. The book tells about the family's caring for their mother as she struggled with dementia. Each chapter includes stories focused on a theme, and ends with tips, tools and resources to help the reader deal with similar issues. Written with a light touch and a wry sense of humor, readers have called the book: “engaging, moving and informative;” “a compelling story that touched me deeply and personally;” and “wonderful, very insightful, honest and helpful.”

Chapters deal with issues including helping your parent or other loved one deal with finances, will and powers of attorney; managing changes in behavior; dealing with increased need for support; changing nutritional needs; handling “Sundowner’s Syndrome” and many other topics.

Egan, a well-known community and health planning consultant, explains that people providing care for an elderly loved one need information, resources, help and support to help them manage the complexities of caregiving.

Egan explains that research shows older adults are the fastest growing demographic group in the U.S. “Most states will see a dramatic increase in the numbers of people aged 60 and older, with the fastest growth in the old-old, age 85 and older. This has significant implications for state and community planning, policy and service budgets - - and for caregiving."

She further explained that many caregivers are adult children who are also still providing support for their own teens or young adult children. These are "the sandwich generation" and they need support.  “And," she says, "we need to develop stronger community resources to help families address these issues.”

Moving Mama is a practical resource for people caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's disease.  Topics covered include wills, powers of attorney, financial management, driving, handling safety and security needs, managing care, handling personal care, dealing with Sundowner’s Syndrome and many other topics. More resources can be found on Egan’s website, http://www.movingmama.net.

There are many other excellent reviews of the book on its Amazon website. Moving Mama has an excellent Amazon rating of 4.9 out of 5 stars.

Families that face similar caregiving situations can benefit from the book’s stories that include a wealth of information and tips gleaned from both personal and professional experience.
