Editorial Reviews

Review

  • "I've never seen such an overwhelming positive response from family members and professionals to any book. They love the simple, comforting language and rave about the well-roundedness of the information--and how empowering it is to apply the techniques. Truly a gift." --Lori La Bey, founder of Alzheimer's Speaks
  • "Insightful and practical guidance for the millions of caregivers struggling to help their loved ones suffering from dementia." --Gary Small, MD, director of the UCLA Longevity Center
  • "Regular doses of Paula Spencer Scott's supportive and instructive wisdom should be prescribed to every family member dealing with Alzheimer's. Her Why-This, Try-This approach is a winner." --Lisa P. Gwyther, MSW, LCSW, director of the Duke Family Support Program
  • "A treasure trove of practical information, addressing so many of the real-world questions and problems I see dementia caregivers struggle with every day. This is a well-researched book that synthesizes the knowledge and experiences of a diverse group of experts (not least of which is Paula herself) into clear explanations and actionable advice. A great choice to recommend to patients and families." --Leslie Kernisan, MD, MPH, geriatrician and caregiver educator at BetterHealthWhileAging.net
  • "Fantastic!" --Leeza Gibbons, TV-radio host and founder of Leeza's Care Connection

From the Author

Alzheimer's and other dementias can be rough waters. I know. Five times now, I've experienced a family member's personality changes, memory loss, and other symptoms and stressors -- and the churning that these challenges can create for everyone involved. I wrote Surviving Alzheimer's after developing the Alzheimer's channel for a pioneering eldercare site, which led to my speaking and writing as a caregiving educator and dementia-care advocate. Through all this, I've been privileged to work with remarkable MDs, PhDs, MSWs, and an alphabet soup of other experts, as well as countless un-credentialed but equally wise hands-on caregivers. In Surviving Alzheimer's, I've summarized their life-changing insights and practical solutions in a way that's fast and accessible--because few of us have a lot of time and energy, even as we have tons of questions, worry, and stress.Alzheimer's and other dementias don't just strike a person's brain; they strike his or her whole support network. If you're like me and my family, you'll often feel at sea. Surviving Alzheimer's is the lifeline resource I'd have wanted to help me get safely to the other shore.
