|Long Description||Caregiver Survival 101: Strategies to Manage Problematic Behaviors Presented in Individuals with Dementia Dementia can be debilitating and life-altering – not only for the person with the disease, but also for family members and caregivers. This book was written to help these caregivers and family members better understand dementia and its effects, so they can proactively avert or lessen problematic behaviors while maintaining a climate of respect and compassion. The management approaches presented are based on research and best practices, as well as the author’s personal and professional experiences. She provides unique insights into the causes, presentations, diagnosis, and management strategies for the various dementias, including Alzheimer’s disease. Through the poignant and personal story about her mother, who was diagnosed with dementia and passed away in 2009, the author shares three very important lessons: * Dementia is a devastating physical, as well as psychological, disease which affects every person differently * Caregivers ultimately have no control; they can only strategically manage events in an attempt to lessen the problems brought on by dementia * Patience and understanding are the keys to caregiver survival|

Code39 also known as Code 3 of 9 allows you to encode text using characters A-Z and 0-9 and some punctuation. Using an extended encoding system, it is possible to encode the entire ASCII character set.
Each character is made up of 10 elements where 5 are bars and 5 are spaces. You may have seen this described as 9 elements on other sites where 5 are bars and 4 are spaces but there is always a narrow space stripe between characters which means we might as well consider that trailing narrow space part of each character making the total number of elements 10. The final trailing narrow space simply appears to be absorbed into the quiet zone to the right of the final barcode. There is no check digit in this symbology unlike others. The variation between the width of the bars is what define the value of each character.
In the image below you will notice the start and stop block are the same. In most Code39 fonts,this is encoded as the asterisk (*) character although may or may not be displayed under the barcode. The text under the barcode is optional and is for human use only. The start and stop asterisks are not decoded when scanned and may or maynot bedisplayed. Also how the text is displayed depends on the process used to create the barcodes. Often, the text is simply under the barcode without the indent displayed in our sample.
Normally, there are only 43 characters that can be encoded using Code39. But if you want to encode the full ASCII characterset, you can prefix letters with special characters to get the characters you need including lower case and special characters. Although it is possible to encode the full ASCII set, if you actually need to do this it is better to use Code128 because it will produce a smaller barcode.
