The Longest Loss: Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia

The Longest Loss: Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia (DVD) includes candid, compelling interviews and an unscripted in-studio discussion by experts who identify ways medical and social service professionals can best improve care for patients, families and themselves while coping with loss and grief associated with these progressive illnesses.
 
The book (ISBN 978-1-893349-18-6) by the same title focuses on patient, caregiver, and health provider grief experienced in dementia illnesses.  Written and edited by experts, caregivers and clinicians, The Longest Loss: Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia examines how grief associated with the illness can begin even before a diagnosis.
When the diagnosis is Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia, grief doesn’t wait for death.  The Longest Loss: Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia (DVD, 2015, 2 hrs., 35 mins.) features an expert panel of advanced degree social workers, a physician and internationally recognized grief experts discussing the many grief aspects that accompany the experience of Alzhieimer’s disease and dementia.  Interviews with caregivers, patients, and clinicians are included. Moderated by Frank Sesno.

The book,  The Longest Loss: Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia, explores the ways that individuals with dementia respond not only to their own loss of cognition but other losses that might be experienced as they struggle with dementia. The Longest Loss: Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia not only delineates these losses, but also offers evidenced-based interventions. In his foreword to the book, Dr. Peter Rabins, author of The 36-Hour Day writes, “… grief, that most universal of human experiences, is at the core of dementia care…” Authors include academicians, clinicians, and individuals whose lives have been affected by dementia illnesses. Authors include: Charles and Donna Corr; Kenneth Doka; Jennifer Elison & Chris McGonigle; Nancy Pearce; Katherine Supiano; Elizabeth Uppman. Doka, K.J. and Tucci, A. S. (Eds) (2015) Washington, DC, Hospice Foundation of America, 98 pp. This book is indexed.
