Aging and education experts Tom and Karen Brenner have just published the book You Say Goodbye and We Say Hello: The Montessori Method for Positive Dementia Care. The book offers strategies for families and caregivers to engage and connect with those suffering from dementia. Photo: Flickr/bestcare22192
