This book would be great for the family, friends caregivers, for professional caregivers and for persons who casually interact with our friends living with dementia. I am so happy that I stumbled across it.
I am a gerontologist and I love working with elders and meeting them in "their space." I so highly recommend this book for your library if you have a best friend to care for. I bought it used and it is in excellent condition.
