This book really covers a lot of ground. I began this book knowing nothing about Alzheimers other than it is an awful and cruel disease. It covers warning signs, what you should look for in a doctor, nurse, etc... it really gives helpful info to set up a team and a game plan as you enter this 'journey' with your loved one. It also covers alternatives to test for. I was surprised by all the things that can cause the same symptoms as Alzheimers and dementia, some of which are easily treatable. I would strongly recommend this book. I checked this out at my local library but quicly knew I needed my own copy. My copy is filled with highlights and notes in the margins. Great reference to have! Prayers to all those who are in need of this book, may God bless you in this 'journey'.
I would definitely recommend anyone who is dealing with a loved one to read this book. It is so difficult to understand what a person with dimentia is going through especially when physically they are so strong. This book has helped me to have more patience and be more understanding.
Over twenty years ago, I first encountered this book when someone recommended it to me when dealing with my husband's grandmother who was failing in her memory. Now, I have purchased a new copy for myself as my 83-yr. old mother struggles with memory loss. This resource is the one book that gives me confidence to love her and care for her in the days ahead. Knowing she would not wish to go to a nursing home, we choose to be prepared for the home care that may lie ahead. This is the book to help guide through this season of life.
This book was recommended to a family member by the Alzheimer specialist she consulted about her mother. After reading it, she said it was extremely helpful. I have since given it to two friends who were or are dealing with a similar situation. Both have also said it was very beneficial in knowing what to expect and how to cope with specific situations.
