Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0863157505, Paperback)This book is the result of Jenny Lewis’s research and experience as a caregiver for her mother, who has suffered from senile dementia for fifteen years. Despite her mother’s worsening condition, Jenny has continually fostered an attitude of hope and a determined effort to improve her mother’s quality of life. In Healthy Body, Healthy Brain, she shares her advice.
Jenny Lewis discusses the importance of valuing and caring for the elderly, encouraging mobility and independence for as long as possible. She emphasizes prevention of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia through nutrition, physical activity, and positivity and offers suggestions on how to improve the health and well-being of those already suffering from these conditions. Jenny goes on to discuss residential care and nursing homes and the importance of adopting a fresh approach toward caring for the elderly in our society.
This practical and encouraging guide also includes practical suggestions that can be introduced easily into daily routines, including recipes for nourishing soups and brain gym exercises.
