Overview
We have long underestimated the person who has dementia. Each one's ability to reach out in familiar ways certainly diminishes yet he or she is always able to experience the deep benefits that come from being in vital relationship with others.

Inside Alzheimer's tells how dozens of persons with dementia and their sharing of wisdom, humor and life's teachings led Ms. Pearce to the six basic principles of connection--how one person connects with another: Intend a connection, Free yourself of judgment, Love, Open to receive love, Silence and Thankfulness. Internalizing these principles has empowered hundreds of family, friends, and professionals to create moments of connection with persons, regardless of how advanced the dementia. This revised edition expands to specifically address the importance of simultaneously bringing our attention to hearing and honoring connections with the 24/7 care person in creating a compassionate community of care.

It includes a forward written by Dr. Allen Powers, author of Dementia Beyond Drugs, expanded resources including new sections such as “Excellent Free Resources” and “Building of a Supportive Community of Care” and many new exercises to enhance reader understanding and energize the spirit. Also included are two appendices based on information collected from over 100 once-overwhelmed 24/7 care persons who wanted to give concrete, helpful messages to overwhelmed (or soon-to-be) 24/7 care persons and to persons in the community who are concerned about them.
