The author, an experienced medical and science writer known for her ability to clearly explain complex and emotionally sensitive topics, is also a former family caregiver herself. Using both personal narrative and well-researched, expert-verified content, she guides readers through the often-confusing and challenging world of dementia care. She carefully escorts caregivers through the basics of dementia as a brain disorder, its accompanying behaviors, the procedures used to diagnose and stage the disease, and the legal aspects of providing care for an adult who is no longer competent.

She also covers topics not usually included in other books on dementia: family dynamics, caregiver burnout, elder abuse, incontinence, finances and paying for care, the challenges same-sex families face, and coping with the eventuality of death and estate management. Each chapter begins with a real-life vignette taken from the author's personal experience and concludes with "Frequently Asked Questions" and "Worksheets" sections.
The FAQs tackle specific issues and situations that often make caregiving such a challenge. The worksheets are a tool to help readers organize, evaluate, and self-reflect.

Sep 11, D. I have now read three dementia caregiving books which I gave four stars to. This, by far, was the very best, warranting a full five stars. Practical, detailed, informative. I highly recommend it if you are a caregiver of someone with dementia.

Feb 23, Christina Dudley rated it it was amazing Shelves: nonfiction , brain-books. This was an excellent book which I would recommend to anyone facing dementia in the family. The author blends personal anecdote with comprehensive, soup-to-nuts discussion. What is the disease and how is it diagnosed? Extremely useful.

This book was so good on so many levels for me having been through this journey with my own mother the past couple years. I wish I had known about it at the beginning of her illness. It would have helped me to know what and when to what needed to be done. I think it should be a suggested resource to anyone who has a loved one who has been diagnosed with dementia. I'm going to ask my children to read it at the first sign of changing behavior on my part!

A lot of very good information for anyone trying to deal with dementia and its labyrinth of problems. This was written from the prospective of caring for a parent so it did not address several issues I had hoped to find but still, a very useful piece of work. Oct 10, Lynn rated it really liked it.
