  • Hiding the Stranger in the Mirror: A Detective’s Manual for Solving Problems Associated with Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders, by Cameron J. Camp, Ph.D., Published by the Center for Applied Research in Dementia

    Writing with wit and compassion, Dr. Camp aims to help his audience better understand how the disease affects memory, and how memory loss may affect behavior. Going against conventional “wisdom,” the author stresses that the key to successfully caring for persons with dementia is to focus on their strengths rather than their weaknesses­­­­ – to see the person and not a disease. His entertaining and insightful book examines cases based on real individuals to illustrate common challenging behaviors and how to approach these challenges. Readers are given tools and resources to understand why persons with dementia do what they do, to help them solve their own “cases,” and, more importantly, they are given a more hopeful way of thinking about Alzheimer’s disease and those who live with it. “We are not helpless in the face of Alzheimer’s disease and associated illnesses. We can best care for ourselves and our loved ones with dementia by embracing the humanity that exists, and has always existed, within each other.” (Cameron J. Camp, Ph.D., from the Author’s Preface to Hiding the Stranger in the Mirror)   This publication is also available in French, German, and Italian.
