LEARNING TO SPEAK ALZHEIMER'S A Groundbreaking Approach for Everyone Dealing with the Disease

by | Read by Pam Ward

Personal Growth • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

This audiobook is surprisingly upbeat, considering that the topic—dealing with relatives with Alzheimer’s—can be so depressing. Using a technique called “habilitation,” which is designed to improve communication between patients and those assisting them, the author offers practical advice about how to cope as the patient’s condition progressively worsens. Listeners will quickly appreciate narrator Pam Ward’s delivery, which remains optimistic regardless of the topic being discussed. Ward’s empathetic, loving tone is ideal and allows the listener to focus on Coste’s methods, which are designed to ease the pain and feelings of helplessness that overwhelm the families and friends of those with Alzheimer’s.
