"Walking In Their Shoes," is a sociological perspective on communicating with people diagnosed with moderate-severe Alzheimer's disease and where/how negative behaviors originate. This book includes true stories and illustrates how to successfully understand behaviors, resolve conflict, and redirect persons diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

 

From his first experience with Alzheimer’s disease, he learned that through observation, non-verbal and verbal communication, he could effectively communicate with people who were diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and considered non-commutative, by observing their actions and locating “their reality.” Once this was accomplished, he used two simple techniques to communicate and “redirect” what some people call “behaviors,” meaning negative behaviors. Although these techniques were not successful all the time, with every success, Michael was rewarded. Now he would like to share these simple techniques, so you can have the same positive results and see that communication is possible with those you love.
