Large Print Reviews

In short, the fourth edition... is a comprehensive resource guide that will help you learn to care for family members.

— Auggie Moore

Midwest Book Review

The 36-Hour Day continues to be the 'bible' of recommendation for any caregiver whose family member suffers from dementia.

Case Management Journals - Kathryn Oliphant

Recommended to all caregivers and families of persons with dementia as an indispensable source of valuable information on a very wide range of topics.

Activities, Adaptation and Aging - M. Jean Keller

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.

New York Review of Books - Michael Greenberg

An admirably realistic guide to caring for people with Alzheimer's.

Chicago Tribune

Both a guide and a legend.

Chicago Sun-Times

The best guide of its kind.

Journal of the American Medical Association

An excellent book for families who are caring for persons with dementia... A book that physicians can confidently recommend to the families of their patients.

New York Times

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.
