Intouch : In Touch Autumn 2012
16 IN TOUCH AUTUMN 2012 AUDIO Mindfulness meditation Through research studies and Jon Kabat-Zinn’s work at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, where he is founder of the world- renowned Stress Reduction Clinic, mindfulness is being recognised as a highly effective tool for dealing with stress, chronic pain and other illnesses. This three-CD set includes Mindfulness for beginners, Guided mindfulness meditation and Meditation for optimum health. BOOKS I'm Still Here by John Zeisel Recognising the place for joy in living with Alzheimer’s disease, John Zeisel explores non-pharmacological approaches to treatment, concerned with how we can access the senses, structure the environment and adapt relationships to promote quality of life. The book leaves us enthusiastic for dementia care and helps us recognise that, despite disabling conditions, we have the capacity to experience pleasure, respect and empowerment. Reviewed by Marg Coutts, Dementia Advisor, Coffs Harbour. To Love What Is: A Marriage Transformed by Alix Kates Shulman In this elegant memoir, Shulman describes the ongoing anxieties and risks, as well as the surprising rewards, she experiences as she reorganises her world to care for her husband and discovers that what might have seemed a life sentence to some has evolved into something unexpectedly rich. This book has been highly recommended by one of our Greater Southern Health Area Dementia Advisors, who reports that members of the local support group found it moving and helpful. Letting Go Without Giving Up: Continuing to Care for the Person with Dementia by Jenny Henderson and Maureen Thom The idea for this book grew from concerns expressed by carers who felt they were no longer allowed to have a role in caring for a person who had entered long-stay care. This booklet is aimed at carers who want to continue their involvement in the lives of the people they have cared for, even if they are no longer responsible for their day-to-day physical care needs.
