This short (108 page) book is a perfect book for the busy caregiver. It is easy to read and is written in layman's language. Each chapter shares a story of a real dementia patient and then Wayman offers advice on how to work with that patient to avoid conflict, anger, aggitation and to reduce confusion. But Wayman's overall message is the importance of the caregiver taking care of himself/herself and to not feel bad about feelings of anger and guilt.

We went to a worshop by this woman and bought her book. I wanted to get more information about what I might be facing with my mother. One of the comforting things was learning that she's not nearly as bad as I thought she was. But should her memory loss progress further, this is a wonderful guidebook for how best to deal with a loved one who is suffering from dementia or Alzheimers dementia.

An easy read but very informative and insightful. It helped me to understand where I have instinctively been doing things right, where I have to do some "tweaking," and where I was totally off base. I would highly recommend for those who have anyone in their lives with Dementia.
