Reading the stories prepared me for what I might expect to see my father go through, and also told of experiences to which I could relate: hey, that happened to me and my dad too! I felt so much less alone.
The chapters of medical information gave me the background necessary to understand this awful disease and the physical changes that my father was experiencing. I highly recommend this book to anyone dealing with Alzheimer's.
-Jacqueline Marcell, Author 'Elder Rage, or Take My Father... Please! How to Survive Caring for Aging Parents', International Speaker on Eldercare & Alzheimer's
I found it interesting, and not as dry and dull as I had expected. I had a hard time putting it down even though MANY situations describe my family's case very closely and it hit near to my heart.
I recommend this book, even over the 36 HOUR DAY, as very informative. I particularly appreciated the personal stories, but did not care for the technical aspects described. I did learn a lot, and if you are not sure of your "person's" diagnosis, I feel this book just might help you figure out what is wrong. It made me more sure of the dx Alzheimers and skeptical of the dementia diagnosis by some and the nothing wrong diagnosis by other family members.
Good Luck and Lots of Love from me to all who need this book.
