"Home is a Feeling" is a calming, reassuring, softly illustrated book for Alzheimer's patients, persons with dementia, and persons whose current place of residence lacks that feeling of being comfortably home. The all-too-familiar words expressing this uncomfortable feeling and frustration often come out as, "I want to go home." Why? Because Alzheimer's, dementia, or even feeling unsettled in a new (or old) home rob a person of "home." Home is where a person is not lost in time, or space, or a situation that feels out of control. Home is where we feel comfortable, safe, connected, a sense of time well spent, and a sense of purpose. Home is where we are warm, well-fed, loved and loving, and most of all, understood. Besides a calming reassurance, it provides the opportunity for meaningful, shared conversation between an individual and their family, friends, or caretakers. Additionally, this simple format allows the person with Alzheimer's, dementia, or unsettled feelings to continue a favorite pass time-- flipping pages and reading through a book's pages. No mention within the story of Alzheimer's or any other illness, no mention of cognitive decline, no mention of assisted living, and no mention of Memory care. Uncluttered pages Bold and easy-to-read with extra-large and large text Illustrations of familiar scenes Suitable for those with limited sight or attentiveness Purposeful layout designed to facilitate side-by-side reading with patient on left and reading partner on right Additional text, primarily as conversation starters for the reading partner to bring up, is printed on the right No page numbers or story sequence (skipping a page is not a problem) Includes a dedication to author's mother, a forward without mention of disease Last page shows an About the Author in small-sized text.
