This book was a wonderful resource! I am an Nurse Educator for nursing assistants. We focus on care for the elderly with dementia and Alzheimer's. My mother had me pick her up a copy as well. I shared excerpts with my students and have added She could have used this when she was taking care of Grandma. However, she has it now for her husband. The book was informative and supportive. It is not a book to sit and read in one sitting. I often kept in a private area so I could read small bites at time and then process that information. I recommend this book to anyone who is experiencing the loss that comes with dementia or Alzheimer's. It will not change the final outcome for your loved-one, but it might help you to help them go through this tragic loss with more dignity and peace. It will also help you to understand that this is not the person you know, they cannot help their behavior. It will also help you to know that this is not the person you once knew and they cannot help what they do or do not do!

My mom heard about this book and picked up a copy. It is a great book for those caring for an elderly person. It has taught my mom new techniques and well as helping her understand how my grandma feels inside. We highly recommend this to all families dealing with these diseases. Thank you for such a great book.
