"This book, which I can thoroughly recommend, is certainly revealing and contains much that is critical for caregivers to know. I believe every professional working with those in dementia and their caregivers would do well to have a copy. The book lends itself to reading straight through and then to being used as and when it is necessary as a reference. It is easy to find specific information as the framework is helpful and logical. The sections on the spiritual needs of those with dementia were welcome topics... I wish I had had this book when I set out on the caregiving journey." --International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry (International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry 20100503)

It's very important for the caregiver of an Alzheimer's patient to have this type of information.
There is another book I found even more helpful. It's called 'Learning How to Speak Alzheimer's'.
The companion volume, "Alzheimer's Disease: The Dignity Within: A Handbook for Caregivers, Family and Friends" is also excellent.
