  1. You can write all the books you want about caregiving. No book will teach common sense or compassion. My wife of 68 years has had Dementia and Alzheimer's since 2002. I have interviewed over 200 caregivers during the 14 years. My head caregiver has 27 years experience and she trains those who help her care for my wife 24/7. My wife is in stage seven under hospice care also. During her earlier years we gave her the MMSE exam every moring after breakfast. We watched it go from 29 to 0 during the 14 years. She understands what is going on but she is unable to speak what is on her mind. Some nights she sings songs that her grandparents sang to her. We have kept her from going into the embronic stage by giving her acupunture along with a physical trainer. Also message therapy. If that is in any books please post it so I can share. Thanks

  2. I wish you would also publish transcripts. You cover many topics I am interested in, but I don't enjoy watching videos, and there are many situations where it is not possible to watch a video where I could easily read an article.
