Francine Falk-Allen from San Mateo, CA USA The small type notwithstanding, this book has been so helpful to us in understanding how to deal with our family member and her spouse. Each experience we have had seems to be covered; I wish we had bought this when we first noticed symptoms, long before she was diagnosed, and long before her spouse would admit there was a problem. However, we did find that when we gave it to the (elderly) spouse, he did not read it and found the large amount of material daunting.

A meticulous, practical, and sympathetic guide for families caring for a relative affected by what is commonly called senility. The authors estimate that five percent of the older population suffers from severe intellectual impairments, and an equal number from the milder impairments of thinking, memory, and reasoning which fall in the category of ""dementia

This book changed my life. When Dad was diagnosed with Alzheimers, my 4 sisters and I were faced with the daunting task of trying to understand and prepare for what was ahead. What is so amazing is how many "pre-conceived notions" there are about this disease that influence our decisions and behaviors. The media, friends who have been in this situation and just our own distorted perceptions all play a roll.

What a difference it has made to get a grasp on my dad's "reality". We have been able to avoid so many of the troublesome behaviors that are sometimes exhibited by Alzheimers sufferers, just be behaving properly, ourselves.

Who knew that the way we speak to and approach someone with this disease could make such a difference in the way they behave and react.

If you are facing this mind-boggling life situation, do yourself a favor...get this book, read it cover to cover, read it again and then insist that everyone who is a caregiver or has contact with your Alzheimers patient read it too. It will make a huge difference!

You use as a reference guide. Having a problem with patient? Go to the index, look up your problem and turn to the correct page and do what the book says. Simple, EZ and wonderful book
Thank you to the authors and all of their research and tips for the caregivers.!!
Buy this book for your friends who are going through this problem, even though your friends can't see it themselves.
If you have a family member or friend that is showing signs of dimentia, you owe it to yourself to read this book. It's not easy to read, because the subject is a hard one if you are exposed to someone with diminishing mental functions, but that's not the books fault. I have read about 40% of it, and have already learned more than I have in all of my other research on the Internet and in reading a couple of other books and talking to many people. It's well written, the language is easy to read (even if the subject matter is difficult to face), and it provides factual information that is entirely relevant. There is a chapter that explains many of the behavior changes you may face, with excellent suggestions on how to deal with each of them. Most sound like common sense once you read them, some are counterintuitive, but I believe all are more effective than what I had been doing. Knowing the most loving responses to a situation doesn't always give you the ability to implement them in the moment, but knowing is better than ignorance. Parts of this book are worth reading a few times, as you learn and try things and come back and review what's working and what isn't in re-reading the key parts of the book. I highly recommend the book.
If you are living with or caring for anyone with memory loss, you owe it to them and to yourself to be aware of how to communicate, live with and be kind to them and yourself. I personally have had three people in my life with whom I either lived or cared for them in their homes. I only had this book for two of those three people and, I believe with all my heart, it helped me to be a better care taker for them. Patience is critical for the patient and well being is critical for the care giver. I'm not a professional care giver, just a daughter and a daughter-in-law who found myself in a position of caring for loved ones who needed help. Care givers also need help and this book tells it like it is.

This book helped me to identify when my mother started having problems with her memory; things that I thought were mood swings or behavior issues but were actually the onset of memory loss. This book taught me how to care for my loved ones and myself. It showed me what I needed to do to make changes in living arrangements and gave me guidelines to financial issues.

We all need help sometime and this book is a great one for just that reason. This book taught me that I could not do it alone and to seek out and ask for help for my loved one(s) and myself.
This is a MUST for anyone going through this with their spouse, mother, father, or grandparents. You think you understand the problem until you read this manual. It will become your best guide through a difficult time.
For anyone even remotely connected with a person or persons who have dementia or Alzheimer's, this book is a must-read. The first couple of chapters provide much insight into what these diseases are and how to help those suffering with them. Being a caregiver is a huge burden on a person, and understanding the person for whom you are caring is not an intuitive task. When a person's memory begins to fade, their actions no longer follow a normal path. This book provides the caregiver with the ability to understand what they are dealing with and what the diseased person is living with. If you are a caregiver, and even if your loved one is in a memory care facility, this book will help you to understand what that person is experiencing.
I buy these books to give to friends and customers that have a loved one with ALZ. My Mom and Grandparents had ALZ and I can promise you, it will make you feel better and help you understand what your loved ones are going through. It explains things in an easy to understand fashion and will give you some peace of mind. I urge anyone out there with any interest in ALZ at all to purchase this book first.
