Suffice it to say that anyone who is caring for someone with Alzheimer's should have a copy of this book.

Dr. Pfeiffer has a wonderful way of explaining the care and understanding that is needed by not only Alzheimer's patients, but all Dementia patients.

Knowledge is power and in today's day and age there is an abundance of knowledge, such as this book, available.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Eric Pfeiffer who wrote The Art of Caregiving in Alzheimer's Disease is an extraordinary individual. Not only did he devote his life to finding a cure for Alzheimer's but when he retired he began writing books to help both people with Alzheimer's and their family members. I write about him from personal experience. I worked with Dr. Pfeiffer when he was a researcher at the University of South Florida. You could find no more compassionate doctor. He was good at what he did because he well understood the plight of Alzheimer's patients and their families. He lived their situation 24/7. It was not just an interest, it was a passion, the kind of passion that both consumes and gives breadth to one's life. It gives you purpose. Some people let their passions destroy their lives but for others, like Dr. Pfeiffer, the passion becomes a vehicle to do good in this world. It is only fitting that now, in his books, he is continuing this legacy of caring and caring for the caregivers.

No one grasps the importance of the role the caregiver plays better than Dr. Pfeiffer. When he urges a caregiver to first take care of oneself it is because he knows what happens when someone does not - he/she gets sick and is not able to care for the loved one who so desperately needs them. When he says to seek out a support group it is because he knows that support is the second most important thing a caregiver can do for oneself after health. And when he urges readers to share the burden of caregiving it is because he knows that it works.

Dr. Pfeiffer has a wonderful way of explaining the care and understanding that is needed by not only Alzheimer's patients, but all Dementia patients. My husband has Lewy Body Dementia related to his Parkinson's Disease and it has very similar symptoms. This book, The Art of Caregiving in Alzheimer's Disease, gives caregivers and family well thought out tips on understanding dementia. I feel it is well worth reading and the Amazon price less than published price.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Pfeiffer is an internationally recognized expert on successful aging, Alzheimer's, and caregiving. Now he shares his vast knowledge with easily understood and followed advice for caregivers at all stages of the caregiver experience. Includes everything from the first recognition of symptoms, through all phases of Alzheimer's disease, nursing home placement, to the resumption of life after caregiving ends. A life-line for those drowning in the caregiver experience. I enjoyed interviewing Dr. Pfeiffer on my radio show.

Did not reveal any new information that I already did not know. Good summary of all the factors to consider in caring for someone with Alzheimer's. An excellent reference. I would recommend it.
