A book by Nancy L. Mace & Peter V. Rabins

We add this book to our list of invaluable resources.

Excellent guidance and clear information of a kind that the family needs… The authors offer the realistic advice that sometimes it is better to concede the patient’s frailties than to try to do something about them, and that a compassionate sense of humor often helps.
— New York Times

An excellent guide with general information for family caregivers of persons with dementia… The text is person focused and describes the complexity and depth of the care required not only for persons with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia but also for caregivers.
— Activities, Adaptation and Aging
