Harvard Health and RosettaBooks Release Mindfulness Support for Alzheimer's Caregivers
Providing care to patients with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia can be emotionally taxing and physically exhausting. In Mindfulness Support for Alzheimer's Caregivers, Dr. Gail Gazelle offers her experience as a former caregiver in addition to more than 25 years of experience as a physician. Affirmations, advice, and comforting counsel will aid the "wounded healers" in meeting their own needs while taking care of their loved ones.
"This is a compassionate and informative guide for every caregiver," said Dr. Julie Silver, Chief Editor of Books for Harvard Health Publications.
"Each Harvard Health Publications original eBook is an important contribution to its field," said Arthur Klebanoff, CEO of leading independent digital publisher RosettaBooks.
An Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and a coach for fellow physicians, Dr. Gazelle's specialty is "healing the healers." With experience treating thousands of patients with Alzheimer's and dementia, she has an intimate understanding of the challenges faced by caregivers of family members and loved ones with this devastating disease.
