“For every friend, relative, or caregiver to a person with Alzheimer’s, [Best Friends] offers practical advice, compassion and optimism in understanding and dealing with the challenges they face each day and how to bring out the best in the person with the disease, so that a life that seems at times hopeless can be a life of love and dignity.” (Jack Canfield, author of Chicken Soup for the Soul 2001-01-01)
