About this book

This text approaches the care of dementia patients via the experience of a psychiatrist as well as a caregiver, offering a holistic approach to care that is unlike any other book in the market. Laced with her experiences from both her professional and personal life, Huffington Post columnist and psychiatrist Dr. Carol W. Berman aims to educate mental health professionals on topics that they continue to grapple with, including diagnosis and treatment, behavioral challenges among patients, working with non-professional and professional caregivers, hospice care, and many other difficulties professionals face when caring for dementia patients.  With the same easy-to-read yet informative tone Dr. Carol W. Berman is known for among her various clinical and lay resources, professionals find that this tool is an excellent resource for structuring care plans with the non-professional caregiver struggling with care management.
Surviving Dementia: A Clinical and Personal Perspective is an outstanding resource for psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, social workers, and other physicians interested in models of dementia care.

Reviews

“Surviving Dementia is clearly a book for caregivers of persons of dementia told from the perspective of a single caregiver in a singular situation. … This book provides a direct, poignant, and somber description of the feelings and thoughts of Carol Berman as she works through the process of identifying a disease, and then caregiving, and eventually coming to terms with dementia and loss of her loving husband of so many years.” (L. Stephen Miller, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 62 (11), March, 2017)

“The author is a psychiatrist whose husband died from dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). Her book is a description of her personal experience of losing her husband to this disease, interspersed with patient vignettes. … This book is intended to be of use for patients, physicians, and families of persons with dementia. … This is a unique book. It is written from the perspective of a physician with first-hand knowledge of treating a loved one with dementia.” (Danielle L. Anderson, Doody's Book Reviews, January, 2017)
