Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This advice-filled book is a helpful, service-oriented addition to the growing number of books about caring for loved ones with dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease. As freelance medical and science writer Shagam notes, as many as five million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s, which causes “a slow and progressive decline in memory, thinking and reasoning skills.” Baby boomers who worry about their parents’, or their own, memory lapses will find the tables and charts in the book especially useful. One lists the 10 signs of Alzheimer’s, which include confusion regarding time or place and difficulty in completing familiar tasks such as driving to a familiar location. Another lists 10 signs that death will happen soon, which include swelling in the feet and ankles, and mottled skin. Though Alzheimer’s in America: The Shriver Report on Women and Alzheimer’s (2011) is a better book, this does provide practical, sensible advice for people who need it. --Karen Springen --This text refers to the paperback edition.
