A provocative look at Alzheimer's disease. The book has helpful information on how to communicate with and engage the person diagnosed with AD to keep them vital. Some of the book gets bogged down with technical information that is not so helpful.
I thought that some of the ideas were worth trying.

there is a good chart on what kinds of memory remain and which ones go first....could be very helpful...not one that I would add to a personal alzheimer's library, but I would recommend reading it once. nothing earth-shattering, but some pages had good information
