"A Pocket Guide for the Alzheimer's Caregiver" is a concise, "how to" manual for those struggling to care for a loved one with Alzheimer's disease or any form of dementia. Dr. Potts is a neurologist whose own father had Alzheimer's disease, and co-author Ellen Potts also had family members with the disease. They speak from experience, both with family members and with Dr. Potts' patients, and use real-life situations to illustrate points. The first part of the book is a narrative description of the disease process in laymen's terms, plus a discussion of common issues caregivers face. The second part is a quick reference with the previously discussed behaviors and bullet-point responses. It's an excellent read and reference with a wealth of information for the Alzheimer's caregiver.
