Must Read for family of Dementia Patient Mar 15, 2008
If you have a loved one that is showing early dementia signs, this is a must read! If you do not know and understand what you will be facing, it will be unbelievably difficult. But this book can help you understand what is happening so you do not take personally what is being said and done by your loved one.
Excellent caregivers' guide Jan 1, 2008
This was written by a professional (clinical social worker), but can be easily understood by laypeople. It gives stages of Alzheimer's--what one can look for in the early, middle and later stages. And is also helpful about how to seek help.
OK--but not so great for older onset alzheimers Apr 20, 2007
My mother is nearly 90. She's just beginning to develop Alzheimer's. This book would be good for those whose loved ones develop Alzheimer's at an earlier age, but I didn't find it very helpful.

Have not finidhed thid publication but have covered approz 125 pages. The info conveyed is excellent and has caused me to modify my approach to my wifs's condition. Unfortunately she has several other probems that complicate the situation. Rgardless this bookis vey helpful so far and I expect the balance to be the same.
Excellent Resource Dec 1, 2006
Many books have been written about Alzheimer's disease. However this book gives the reader an easy to understand yet thorough explanation of what a family or caregiver should do when someone (s)he loves or works for has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.
