This book is unparalleled in its powerful insight into the mind of a person desending into the darkness of dementia. A wonderful tool to use if someone you love is facing the same journey. As you begin understanding the reasons for the bizarre behaviors your loved one may be exhibiting, your frustration turns into compassion and patience. This book may very well ignite a renewed desire to creatively incorporate new tools and methods of managing difficult behaviors and become the impetus to positively interact with the suffereer of this debilitating disease. I read this book when it was first written many years ago at the start of my career in the field of aging. I still refer to it today more than any other book as I help others deal with this confusing and heartbreaking issue.
I read this book as a college student. I am now a medical social worker and gave my copy to a family a few years ago to borrow; oh how I miss it! This is such a poignant and thought provoking book and helps to remind families, caregivers and healthcare professionals about the person behind the dreaded disease.
