Editorial Reviews


I highly recommend Kathy Laurenhue's two new books on Alzheimer's disease. The price is very inexpensive, especially compared to the wealth of knowledge inisde these easy to read books. I personally trained under Kathy in the early 1990's; she impressed me then and she continues to shine in my eyes. --Kathy Whitfill, dementia specialist

Kathy's wonderfully warm, very personal voice comes through so well in these delightful books. They are most helpful and not so daunting as many of the volumes in our library. So charmed are we by these little companion books that we have stocked 15 sets. --Marian Wenzel, support group leader

Kathy Laurenhue is widely known throughout the US and Australia for her creative training techniques related to aging issues and for her ability to enhance serious topics with humor while always respecting individual humanity.

Excellent book---as a former Alzheimer care giver ; I think anyone facing this problem should use it as a bible. It is plain talk and answers so many questions that arise when taking care of someone with this horrible disease.
