    1. This seems like a great approach to communicating with people with dementia. There are obviously a lot more ways to mess up these communications than to do them right. I hope we can make this work in our family's situation. For me, the book was difficult to read for a couple of reasons. First, the goal of validation seems to be to make things less bad as a person approaches the end of life. So a happy ending means that someone dies in a relative state of peace. I suppose that I mostly don't look [...]


    2. There are some good tips on how to communicate with someone who is extremely agitated due to dementia. I am not sure I quite agree to the reasons provided for this agitation. The book suggests that there is some deep unresolved life stages that the person is working through. A part of me believes that changes in the brain probably cause some of that agitation, regardless of whatever psychiatric issues there might be. In any case, I am going to try the techniques and I can see why they would be u [...]


    3. This approach to dealing with agitation in persons with dementia may have some merit, but I am not convinced by the underlying theory. Further, for the most part, the book is a series of anecdotes written in a somewhat self-congratulatory way that I did not find particularly scholarly. Nevertheless, the anecdotes are interesting.


    4. This book has been indispensable to me as a music therapist. I incorporate a lot of the principles detailed in this book into my practice, with amazing results.


    5. I think the great merit of this book is the shift from looking from a nurse's perspective towards the patient's perspectivce. The underlying theory is - as many people noted - kind unscientific (cynics would call it psychobabble), arguing that actions and comments by a person affected with Alzheimer's disease are attempts to deal with emotions that come from unresolved conflicts. I think this is perfectly possible for some actions, but others simply don't make sense and have no meaning - to vali [...]


    6. I think this approach sounds fantastic-- but I also think learning to use it could be very challenging. I like the author's mindset that old and "old-old" people have wisdom and deserve respect. Our culture in general has way too little respect for the old, and this is a step in the right direction.


    7. Great book by a woman who has been a pioneer in the best care for people with Alzheimer's. Applies more to very elderly people who develop dementia (ex 80's and older) than for those who develop it at a younger age. My mother was diagnosed with AD at 70 and so much of this book doesn't apply to her situation. That said, I learned so much about AD by reading this book - I'll find it useful.


    8. I actually have not read this book. I skimmed it. Important information for those working with or caring for people with Dementia. I kept it for a few months. It was a borrowed book.d I just did not get to it. May read it some day. I did read some of it.


    9. Good book for those who have limited experience with dementia patients. Good those who have experience, I believe this is a tactic one naturally gravitates to when working with these patients.
