    Recommended for new caregivers; a must

    Mace and Rabins have put together a detailed primer for first time caregivers and family members of those with dementias. It provides information for every aspect of how to cope with this devestating illness. It is written at a basic level with little of the medical jargon that would confuse. Experienced caregivers who have dealt with their loved one's dementia probably will find this material lacking in sufficient detail, however it provides nuggets that you may have overlooked.

    Highly Recommended

    A must read for every family facing the task of caring for a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer. There are many books on this subject, but this by far was the best I have read in dealing with the day to stress of caregiving, explaining the disease and where to go for help in preparing your loved one and your self for the long road ahead.
