About this title:

Synopsis: CAREGIVER FOLLOW ME is a unique book for chief caregivers of Alzheimer's patients living at home. Patti has heard the caregivers' pleas for help and has done something about it. "Caregivers need help and that help can come in the form of a specially trained dog; an Alzheimer's dog that the caregiver can train themselves." Patti knows her subject from twenty-five years of hands-on-experience and generously gives her knowledge in language a lay person can understand. For clarification she uses photographs, illustrations, stories, and diagrams. The dog's explicit job is "wander control" and Patti's humane training methods have been proven to work. All of the training techniques that Patti developed for the Alzheimer's dogs are available to you. She knows that caregivers will experience pure joy as they journey with her in creating an Alzheimer's dog that becomes their partner in the confrontation against dementia. Together they can keep their loved one at home where they can provide maximum care with less stress. Using Patti's personal knowledge of her subject matter you will craft a working partnership with your dog that gives you peace of mind and offers a myriad of therapeutic benefits for your patient, yourself, and your entire family. Wouldn't it be nice to get a good night's sleep knowing that your dog is affectionately watching over your loved one listening for, hearing, and recognizing a potential wandering situation? There would be no more, "What did I hear? Is she up? Should I get up again and check?" Your dog will handle this for you and be absolutely delighted to perform its job. The only wage that your dog asks for is your acknowledgement that it has done its job, has pleased you, and will get oodles of your love. Primary to your success is establishing the idea that each training session, from the dog's viewpoint, is a game it can play with you for its entire life. You will be teaching your dog nine steps that, once put together, will be known as the pattern, which the dog will execute in order to successfully complete its work task. These nine steps are taught from within five different environments; each one getting progressively more challenging for the dog. This way you can efficiently teach the dog what it must learn to become an Alzheimer's dog. Learn its language and listen to its voice--your dog is already reading you. Take pride in yourself and your dog. Teach your dog to hear for you.

About the Author: Patti Putnam has her BS degree in sociology with past employment as a psychiatric social worker and judicial probation officer. She has subsequent degrees in basic/advanced dog obedience training as well as specialized hearing dog training. She started a non-profit assistance dog provider program, was head trainer and executive director for 25 years, where she was personally involved in all facets of the program from selection, training, placement and follow through, of hearing, seizure, and Alzheimer's assistance dogs. Her program was seen in numerous news media including Prime Time Live and Newsweek magazine and won Delta Society's 1991 hearing dog of the year award. She was elected to Assistance Dogs International's Board of Directors. She personally created the prototype Alzheimer's assistance dog as well as those working Alzheimer's dog teams that followed. Due to lack of funds the program was terminated in 2011 but inquiries for her dogs keep coming. The need for Alzheimer's dogs continues to grow. No other provider program is training Alzheimer's dogs to complete the exact job that Patti's dogs do, therefore, there is no place to refer people to. Additionally, she realizes that once she is no longer available, without written record of how she taught the dogs, this pertinent data will vanish. Because of these factors Patti's solution-to write a how to train an Alzheimer's dog book, CAREGIVER FOLLOW ME, -simultaneously, preserves her training methods and keeps the Alzheimer's dog viable. Chief caregivers can successfully train their own Alzheimer's dogs in their own homes while safeguarding Patti's methods for future generations to capitalize upon.
