  • - pårørendes liv med sygdommen frontotemporal demens
    af Ingrid Lauridsen & Charlotte Helsted
    287,95 kr.

    »Man mister Emma Gad!« Det er et af de første og mest synlige tegn på, at man lider af frontotemporal demens. Når hjernen visner er den første dansksprogede bog om pårørendes liv med ægtefæller eller forældre, der lider af frontotemporal demens.Denne demenstype (også kaldet frontallapsdemens) er især kendetegnet ved, at de ramte mister ’deres gode opdragelse’ og deres naturlige empati. De kan bl.a.:blive verbalt ubehagelige, hvor de kalder deres ægtefæller voldsomt grimme tingsmide tøjet i offentlighedenkomme med upassende, seksuelle tilbud til både fremmede, gamle venner eller egne børnbegynde at smårapse i butikkerne, når de er på indkøb.De første symptomer opstår som regel, når patienten er i 50’erne, men ofte tager det mange år, før diagnosen ligger klar. Det giver et yderligere pres på de pårørende, der kan mærke, at noget ikke er, som det plejer, mens læger og psykologer har svært ved at finde årsagen.Når hjernen visner indeholder historier fra 11 ægtefæller og seks børn om, hvad demensen har betydet for deres mand, kone, far eller mor og forholdet til dem. Bogen er en hjælp til andre pårørende, der har brug for at vide, at de ikke er alene, og den er en øjenåbner til læger, psykologer og andet sundhedspersonale, der her får en unik indsigt i, hvad man kæmper med som pårørende, og hvordan man bedst kan hjælpe som fagperson.Når hjernen visner er redigeret af Charlotte Helsted, enke efter en mand med frototemporal demens, og Ingrid Lauridsen, cand.psych. med speciale i gerontopsykologi.

  • - lær at forstå mennesker med demens
    af Dorthe Boss Kyhn & Anneke Dapper-Skaaning
    268,94 kr.

    Demenssprog sætter fokus på, hvordan vi, der er raske, bliver bedre til at 'oversætte' demenssprog og selv blive i stand til at 'tale' sproget, så vi kan skabe bedre rammer for mennesker, der har demens.Bogen giver både råd og værktøjer til, hvordan vi kan sætte os bedre ind i mennesker, der har demens. Bogen tager udgangspunkt i modellen 'isbjerget', der kan forklare den adfærd, som mennesker med demens viser os: Over vandet er adfærden, vi kan se med det blotte øje, men under vandet er de følelser og psykologiske behov, der ikke opfyldes.Vi er nødt til at blive bedre til at sætte os ind i de ønsker og behov, som mennesker med demens har, og bogen her giver endelig de redskaber, som vi så ofte mangler til dette.Demenssprog henvender sig til alt plejepersonale i hjemmeplejen og på plejecentre samt pårørende for og mennesker med demens.

    "Min bedstefar hedder Kaj og min bedstemor hedder Gerda. Jeg besøger dem tit. Min bedstefar har 123 forskellige blomster i sin udestue og han kan alle 123 navne udenad. På latin. Mig kalder han Stump."Stump har stribevis af gode stunder hos sin bedstefar og bedstemor, med blomster, puslespil, kryds-og-tværs og kærlighed. En dag opdager Stump, at bedstefar er begyndt at tabe ord; helt bogstaveligt drysser de efter ham og han kan ikke mere huske, hvad forskellige ting hedder. Bedstemor opdager det først den nat, han er gået ud i snevejr, og ordene ligger og lyser i sneen. Men hun kan sine tricks og sammen med Stump lykkes det hende at få tilrettelagt en stribe gode stunder for bedstefar. En smuk og ærlig billedbog, der vil hjælpe børn med at forstå, hvad der sker, når nogen bliver ramt af demens eller alzheimers. Bogen er blevet til i samarbejde med Erindringscenter Bornholm og indeholder et efterord til den voksne læser, skrevet af Ove Dahl, historiker og leder af Dansk Center for Reminiscens – om hvordan man bl.a. ved hjælp af genstande kan etablere et meningsfuldt samvær, selv i fremskredne stadier af sygdommen.”Lille, gribende, fortælling” Carsten G. Johansen, Helse ”Det er nogle år, siden jeg har læst H. C. Andersens Snedronningen, men jeg mindes, at jeg som barn syntes, det var uhyggeligt, hvordan Kaj kunne forandre sig så drastisk, og hvor modig og stærk Gerda var i sin vedholdende kærlighed. Symbolikken passer rigtigt fint i denne bog, der mest af alt handler om kærligheden og livets foranderlighed” Katrine Colmorn, Litteratursiden.dk ”Det kan ikke gøres smukkere” ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Steffen Larsen, Politiken

    As the butcher knife flew from Dad's hand through the air, I visualized it slicing into the back of the retreating social worker. Like a Banty rooster, my dad stood on the back stoop, preening with power.What happened to the kind, lighthearted gentleman whose strong faith had grounded him for eighty years? When I was growing up, Dad was a playful, happy man who enjoyed bringing pleasure to his loved ones. Constructing a skating rink in the barnyard, planning trailer trips to Disneyland or Montana, building a wakeboard to tow us behind his boat were gifts. Hard-working and ingenious, his whimsy disguised the changes taking place. Dad's mission to protect and care for others, while seeking his childhood dream of owning a farm, triggered a slow slide into the current of dementia.Our family survived an experience so outlandish that I hope sharing it will comfort those who have rafted the same tempestuous river or are now undergoing a similar voyage. A tapestry spun from a treasure trove of family stories, this memoir lovingly accompanies his last journey.The lesson of our odyssey? Mental illness affects billions of us and needs to be released from the darkness of disgrace into the light of love, care, and research.

    Det er ret overraskende, at der ikke findes særlig meget viden eller udgivet litteratur om mennesker med udviklingshæmning, ifølge forfatteren Anette Vinther Mortensen. Hun har udviklet en demensmodel, hvor hun præsenterer otte demenssymptomer, der kan opstå, når mennesker med udviklingshæmning rammes af demens. Den tager afsæt i mennesker med udviklingshæmning og demens - med særligt fokus på Downs syndrom. Demenssymptomerne er dog almengyldige, og bogens indhold er derfor også brugbart i den brede befolkning. Bogen klæder professionelle medarbejdere såvel som pårørende på til at være en aktiv del af den tidlige og essentielle opsporing af demens. En rettidig diagnose er central for, at mennesker med demens kan modtage den rette indsats, det rette sted. Bogen formidler viden og bidrager til kvalificeringen af såvel den aktuelle som den fremtidige pædagogiske faglige indsats. Bogens målgruppe er pædagoger, pårørende, medarbejdere inden for ældreområdet og diverse uddannelsesinstitutioner, der uddanner personale, der kommer i berøring med mennesker med demens – uanset deres kognitive funktionsniveau. Anette Vinther Mortensen er uddannet pædagog og har i de seneste ca 20 år arbejdet som socialpædagog indenfor specialområdet i forhold til borgere med udviklingshæmning og demens.
