Reviews - What do customers think about When Someone You Love Has Alzheimer's?

Insight Into The Caregiver's Journey  Oct 12, 2006
You see chapter headings like: Accepting the Diagnosis, Beginning to Cope, Finding Support, Achieving Compassion, and Questions and Answers about Alzheimer's. My expectations were then for a factual book dealing with the emotional issues of the disease. It was a shock to open the pages and see the poetry format.
These might make good discussion starters for an Alzheimer's support group. Topics like grief or anger make the reader think about their reaction to the changes going on.
Probably I'd have given this more stars if the cover had prepared me for what was inside.
