New Books/Old Books

Hello! Happy Holidays. Just a quick bit of news: I’ve updated the list of books we have read previously. I have also put in the entire list of books we are going to read in 2018 (with links to the catalog). February’s book The Johnstown Flood should be available by February 1st at the Circulation Desk.

Sundowning

Since Roz brings up a lot of different difficult topics up in this book, I’ve decided to focus on a few topics to highlight resources and interesting articles. The first topic I want to touch on is Sundowning.

Mayo Clinic – Sundowning: Late-Day Confusion

Alzheimer’s Association – Sleep Issues and Sundowning 

CBC – Sundowners and Their Exhausted Caregivers

The Atlantic – An Overnight Nursing Home for Dementia Patients

New York Times – Behind the Scenes: Capturing Mental Twilight

Intentional Caregiver – My Experiences with “Sundowning”

The Reason I Jump

For February 2016 we are reading The Reason I Jump: The Inner Voice of a Thirteen-Year Old Boy with Autism by Naoki Higashida for our February 29th discussion.

As always if you didn’t pick up your copy of this month’s book at the last discussion, you can pick it up at at the Circulation Desk on the 1st floor.
