I really enjoyed this book. It was a great and small book that was easy to read and not overly technical. I'd definitely recommend it to families and want a copy of my own. I'm glad that I was able to read it for my project on Alzheimer's that I'm doing for my practicum. Just a highly readable book. I think it took me, maybe, 5 hours over the course of a couple weeks to read.

Read for: Practicum for Foundation Year

I should have known that I would not glean much useful information with a book that is this thick. The lot of it is pretty much common sense. Accept the situation, ask for help, give yourself a break, reframe your thinking, etc. etc. Certain parts in chapter two and chapter five where the only things of real value to me. Oh and the appendix. The exercises seemed more like page fillers. Every time the author presented a case study, I felt like I was reading an elementary math word problem.

a very uplifting and encouraging book that gives solutions and helps a caregiver to understand what he/she is going through and what the person with dementia is going through

Not that I recommend anyone need read this, but should the subject be pertinent, this is a very good introduction.
