If you are a caregiver for someone with dementia of any kind, Alzheimers, or other brain disease, this is the book for you. It brings so much comfort through addressing a multitude of issues. Can (and usually is) used as a daily reference by caregivers all over. Can't recommend it enough.

This is a "must have" book for caregivers. I am the Facilitator for the Conway Alzheimer's Support Group, and this is the book I recommend to everyone who attends my group. It gives lots of information in a very readable way, and it a wonderful reference to have for all caregivers.
This is an absolute MUST for anyone who is caring for or living with an Alzheimers patient.This is book will take you through every stage letting you know what to expect an how to handle the things you will face. It is a great reference book and will become invaluable to you as you travel through the ups and downs of this disease.
