Both a guide and a legend.(Chicago Tribune)
The best guide of its kind.(Chicago Sun-Times)
An excellent book for families who are caring for persons with dementia... A book that physicians can confidently recommend to the families of their patients.(Journal of the American Medical Association)
Excellent guidance and clear information of a kind that the family needs... The authors offer the realistic advice that sometimes it is better to concede the patient's frailties than to try to do something about them, and that a compassionate sense of humor often helps.(New York Times)
An excellent, practical manual for families and professionals involved in the care of persons with progressive illnesses... The book is specific and thought-provoking, and it will be helpful to anyone even remotely involved with an 'impaired' person... Highly recommended, especially for public and nursing libraries.(Library Journal)
Continues to be the 'bible' of recommendation for any caregiver whose family member suffers from dementia.(Bookwatch)
Recommended to all caregivers and families of persons with dementia as an indispensable source of valuable information on a very wide range of topics.(Kathryn Oliphant Case Management Journals)
An excellent guide with general information for family caregivers of persons with dementia... The text is person focused and describes the complexity and depth of the care required not only for persons with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia but also for caregivers.(M. Jean Keller, EdD Activities, Adaptation and Aging)
An admirably realistic guide to caring for people with Alzheimer's.(Michael Greenberg New York Review of Books)
