How do you keep up with your loved one’s new set of needs? How do you help them through this most difficult time in their lives? How can you balance your caregiving responsibilities with your own needs?
 
Dementia is tough on the person suffering from it… and tough on their caregivers. But rest assured that there are ways to make life easier for everyone, you included.
 
With the help of this easy-to-follow guide, you will be able to put the necessary systems in place to care for your loved one, without sacrificing your well-being.

In this helpful and supportive book, you will discover:
 
How to deal with the initial shock when you all discover that dementia is on the cards
 
An overview of what is going on in the brain of someone with dementia and how this affects their daily mental and emotional functioning
 
Practical tips for task management, from basic hygiene to creating workable schedules for your loved one
 
How to handle the most common challenging behaviors – what to do when your loved one goes missing, acts up, gets paranoid, or refuses to cooperate

How to look after your own needs so that you have the strength and energy to look after everyone else
 
And much more.
 
It’s heartbreaking to watch your loved ones slip away to a mental place that you cannot follow. And it’s even harder when you’re barely able to take care of yourself as a result of caring for them.

    Last Post Over the River Kwai is the carefully researched account of the experiences of the officers and men of 2nd Battalion The East Surreys during the Second World War.Stationed in Shanghai in the early 1940s, the Battalion was deployed to Malaya and fought gallantly to slow the Japanese advance. After heavy losses the survivors found themselves POWs in Singapore in February 1942 after the humiliating surrender which Churchill described as Britains worst ever military disaster.The next three and a half years saw members of the Battalion suffering appalling hardship at the hands of their brutal Japanese captors, whether in Singapore, on the Death Railway, Malaya or Japan itself, as wells as on hellships. Many died but remarkably the majority survived to tell their story. Their prolonged captivity with unbelievable hardship, deprivation and cruelty makes for distressing but inspiring reading.

    Why we need to think more like economists to successfully combat terrorism 
    If we are to correctly assess the root causes of terrorism and successfully address the threat, we must think more like economists do. This is the argument of Alan Krueger's What Makes a Terrorist, a book that explains why our tactics in the fight against terrorism must be based on more than anecdote, intuition, and speculation. 
    Many popular ideas about terrorists and why they seek to harm us are fueled by falsehoods, misinformation, and fearmongering. Many believe that poverty and lack of education breed terrorism, despite the wealth of evidence showing that most terrorists come from middle-class, and often college-educated, backgrounds. Krueger closely examines the factors that motivate individuals to participate in terrorism, drawing inferences from terrorists' own backgrounds and the economic, social, religious, and political environments in the societies from which they come. 
    He describes which countries are the most likely breeding grounds for terrorists, and which ones are most likely to be their targets. Krueger addresses the economic and psychological consequences of terrorism and puts the threat squarely into perspective, revealing how our nation's sizable economy is diverse and resilient enough to withstand the comparatively limited effects of most terrorist strikes. He also calls on the media to be more responsible in reporting on terrorism. 
    Bringing needed clarity to one of the greatest challenges of our generation, this 10th anniversary edition of What Makes a Terrorist features a new introduction by the author that discusses the lessons learned in the past decade from the rise of ISIS and events like the 2016 Pulse nightclub attack in Orlando, Florida.

    After writing four summary books about aliens, I decided to compile their most relevant content, with physicists’ recent insight concerning how they achieve their aerial and submerged acrobatics and high speeds, and other tricks, into a single full-length book. 
    Based on my four previous books, we can add this to the other top alien secrets to have our final list to explore in this book: 
    01 Life on Earth arose from alien genetically engineered DNA. 
    02 In addition to their spacecraft's astounding and mind-boggling motion, aliens have other surprising skillsets as the ultimate scientists. Aliens are experts at cloning. They can erase selected memories in Humans, install material implants, communicate telepathically, shut down or manipulate electronic systems like missiles, temporarily paralyze, beam people or objects into their ships, and control spacetime through the mastery of physics at the quantum level. They likely apply quantum AI and quantum computers to achieve their technological prowess. 
    03 Based on ancient history and myths, aliens influenced our first civilizations and ours now, as well as everything in between. They were perceived as gods, which led to the Abrahamic religions that replaced ruling councils of aliens with the concept of a monotheistic god. 
    04 Some aliens have expanding hybridization programs with Humans stemming from abductions. 
    05 Some aliens have shown hostility regarding our proliferation of nuclear weapons and space exploration, particularly the moon. 
    06 Some aliens continue to plot to infiltrate our populations and control Earth. 
    Takeaway: Studying current alien technology and skillsets and funding relevant research leads modern Humans to mastery of the same and will help guarantee our survival as a species.
