It is also informative for staff in facilities who care for patients with Alzheimer's and their families. We can all learn. This is what the man or lady you are caring for today are thinking but maybe can't get it out.
Oddly I had never read his book, although I was aware of it. My present pastor's wife was amazed to hear that Bob was my pastor and mentioned the book to me. I ordered it from Amazon and read it in two days. It was doubly meaningful to me. Betty did a great job finishing the book; however, more is known about the disease now than when she wrote about it.
I gave this book to a person who had had multiple little strokes, and after reading it, she agreed about the 'black hole' described by the author. So, in dementia memory loss, there are some similarities between the types, though from different causes.
I can't recommend this book too highly. I recently purchased this copy to give to a woman who's in the frustrations of early Alzheimer's in her husband. I began and led an Alzheimer's support group for 14 years when Alzheimer's was just emerging into the foreground back in the 80's, and when this book came out, it was a real God-send and tool for families. When you can get into someone else's skin, it gives a whole new meaning to why they do and behave, and makes caregiving expectations more reasonable. Not necessarily easier, but more reasonable.
