From the backcover:
Caring for a relative or friend suffering from Alzheimer's disease can be profoundly distressing. This most common form of dementia, that destroys the mind and the memory, can affect any one of us, make and female, and it is not restricted to the elderly.

Caring for Maria is the extraordinary account of the reality of caring for one sufferer. Beautifully written by Maria's primary carer, it is based on diaries that were written to help alleviate the great pressure of caring. This intense, yet at times humorous, book presents a story of exceptional human courage, determination and compassion.
