Every seventy seconds in the United States, someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease, and millions of family members are caring for them. As a medical professional in healthcare for thirty years, caring for geriatric patients and patients with Alzheimer's Disease in both hospitals and Nursing homes, I used several books to gain additional insight on providing excellent caregiving services. Nataly Rubinstein has penned the most valuable, educational guide pertaining to Alzheimer's Disease and other Dementias that I have ever read. Through her personal and professional experience, Nataly created a comprehensive book including vital information that's extremely useful in the care and management of patients, diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease and other Dementias. I highly recommend this indispensable book to all caregivers, medical professionals, and families who have a loved one, diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease and other Dementias. The educational benefit of this book, including expert knowledge about the disease and how to care for these patients, makes all the difference in the world on that long surviving journey for both patient and caregiver, which makes this book priceless. This invaluable treasure that's written in simplicity provides excellence in caregiving with confidence, understanding the disease and what to expect, and most important, how to cope on a daily routine.

Finally, the complete survival guide for Alzheimer's Disease and other Dementias is now right at our finfertips! I also recommend this book to all those who choose Nursing and Healthcare as a new career. They will indeed be grateful to gain insightful knowledge on this subject matter, prior to clinical experience and state boards. The author provides encouragement, comfort, and hope, which are crucial factors in maintaining excellent service for the lives and dignity for anyone with memory loss.

The outcome will be rewarding for both patient and caregiver. The golden key to excellent service is understanding this disorder, and Nataly provides the essential tools and strategies to successfully guide them through the dementia maze, with one-hundred percent support.

The word is synonymous with terror, grief, and angst. The word is Alzheimer's Disease. For those facing the unthinkable and the caregivers who will gallantly stand in the gap for their loved ones there is a book that is a must read time and again throughout the life changing journey. Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias - The Caregiver's Complete Survival Guide authored by Nataly Rubinstein is honest, informative, concise, and most of all, filled with the hope of dignity via education of one of life's cruelest diseases. Rubinstein speaks dually with voices of professional wisdom and personal empathy; often inserting first hand experiences in caring for her Alzheimer's stricken mother. The handbook is a comprehensive work of all aspects of Alzheimer's and Dementia beginning with diagnosis through ultimate conclusion of death. As somber as that may sound, Rubinstein's work offers the best resource tools in the worst of life's conditions in an effort to enable all those involved with this insidious disease to be the best caregivers possible. Five out of five stars for the 'must have' on every family's bookshelf. Respectively submitted, Beckey Burgoyne Author, Perfectly Amanda: Gunsmoke's Miss Kitty
