I found Calmer Waters to be a refreshing read, in line with current thinking that there must be more to life with dementia than is currently depicted in the story of dementia we tell. In a time where physicians, while well-meaning and well-intentioned, tend to provide little in the way of informing people on how to live with dementia, Barbra Cohns book goes a long way in helping caregivers and people with dementia to fill the gap in support after diagnosis. ~Laura Bowley, Director, Mindset Centre for Living with Dementia This heartfelt love story not only shares the inspiring journey of care and commitment for a loved ones struggle with Alzheimers but also provides invaluable information and proven practices that any caregiver can easily and immediately adopt to bring calm, hope and balance into the often turbulent waters of caregiving. ~Shanti Medina, CYT CPT CNSF, Founder Body Current(R) www.EnergizeShanti.com
