Lisa Paglia-Skinner is a behavioral expert that specializes in the field of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias with over 2 decades of experience handling different cases and helping families find the best possible care. In line with her goal of helping people suffering from different kinds of dementias, Lisa Skinner has launched a book she co-authored with her son, Ken Paglia, an author and public relations professional.
Dementia is a common illness associated with a decline in memory or other thinking skills that could lead to a reduction in a person’s ability to perform everyday activities. Alzheimer’s disease is probably the most common form of dementia, accounting for over 60 percent of cases. Dementia is generally caused by damage to brain cells with some of the well-known conditions leading to changes in the brain including Depression, Medication side effects, Excess use of alcohol, Thyroid problems, and Vitamin deficiencies. While there are different ways of handling the condition, many caregivers and loved ones of patients are not adequately informed on how to effectively handle the condition. This is where Lisa Paglia-Skinner in collaboration with Ken Paglia is looking to make a huge difference.
Skinner aims to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and dementia and how a meaningful relationship can be maintained with the person affected. She plays the main character in the book, literally holding readers by the hand and using real-life stories to illustrate some of the common behaviors that are associated with dementia along with an explanation of the behavior at the end of each chapter.
Not All Who Wander Need Be Lost is a detailed, concise guide written to help readers navigate the heartbreaking challenges of having a loved one diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or any other form of dementia. Lisa teaches from her experience in the eldercare industry, offering simple yet effective tips for dealing with the difficult questions families face during this period. Some of the questions answered in the book include:
• How to respond to a loved one’s false belief
• How to deal with putting parents in the care of professionals
• How to make the best of the time left.
Skinner’s original thinking and counter-intuitive solutions provide family members, spouses, children, caregivers, and others with the tools they need to effectively manage the symptoms of brain disease.
The book has become popular with diverse readers receiving accolades from different quarters. “This is the most informative book I have read on Alzheimer’s and Dementia. I have a 93 yr old Mother and realized she is really doing well and her symptoms were not related to the disease. A feeling of relief came over me and I felt very grateful to Lisa for her hard work and putting that book together for the general public to be better informed and what to do for our loved ones. God Bless You Lisa!” says Peggy Meyers.
Not All Who Wander Need Be Lost is currently available on Amazon for readers across the globe.
