Editorial Reviews

Review

"Both a guide and a legend." --Chicago Tribune

"The best guide of its kind." --
Chicago Sun-Times

"An excellent book for familias 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 realistic advice that sometimes it is better to concede the patient's frailties than try to do something about them, and that a compassionate sense of humor often helps." --
New York Times

"An admirably realistic guide to caring for people with Alzheimer's." --
New York Review of Books

"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
