Editorial Reviews

Review

The 36-Hour Day, 6th edition, serves as an essential guidebook full of detailed, practical, and compassionate advice for those caring for a PWD. This edition, released 36 years after the original, continues to provide relevant, practical, and up-to-date advice to those providing care to an individual with memory loss. The 36-Hour Day continues to serve as the gold-standard care guide for millions of dementia caregivers.

-- Kara B. Dassel, PhD, University of Utah, College of Nursing ― The Gerontologist

We yearn for the day when there is no Alzheimer’s, no Alzheimer patients, and no Alzheimer caregivers. Until then, there is The 36-Hour Day.

-- Jeffrey Cummings, MD, ScD, Director, Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health

Having lived the chapter and verse of The 36-Hour Day for twenty years, I know how this book empowers families with constructive and compassionate advice. This new edition offers definitive testament to the slow destructive force of Alzheimer’s disease and how it challenges families caring for loved ones with dementia. It is a must read by all those who serve our aging generation.

-- Meryl Comer, author of Slow Dancing with a Stranger: Lost and Found in the Age of Alzheimer’s

Thorough and compassionate, offering accessible information and practical advice, The 36-Hour Day is a necessary resource for families living with dementia. Still the gold standard, this book is the trusted reference that families turn to first―and over and over―for guidance and support in caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease.

-- Lisa Genova, author of Still Alice

From its knowing title to its knows-everything contents, The 36-Hour Day "gets" what you're going through. This encyclopedia of dementia care misses no aspect of life affected, from tough behaviors to challenged relationships to medication decisions  ― describing each with both the honesty and compassion we caregivers deeply need.

-- Paula Spencer Scott, author of Surviving Alzheimer's: Practical Tips and Soul-Saving Wisdom for Caregivers

Review

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

Both a guide and a legend.

Chicago Tribune

An admirably realistic guide to caring for people with Alzheimer's.

New York Review of Books

The best guide of its kind.

Chicago Sun-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.

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.
