This book was so basic; a waste for anyone who has had any experience in communicating with people. The sample dialogues given were condescending. This material was in all the "self-help" books that came out in the 80's and 90's.
There was also nothing in there that applied to a caregiver who is dealing with Alzheimer's.
OK if you have read nothing else about how to communicate with people in general.

This book should be in eBook version. Then a caregiver will always have it with her! This book is excellent because because the author gets into the nitty gritty of how to speak and exchange views with the care receiver. I found the conversational dialogues very useful. Also the reasons behind the conversational suggestions. The author is a trained professional and she also had the experience of caregiving herself. This book is well worth reading if you are the primary caregiver.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book is a Godsend. It is absolutely the best book of it's kind that i've found, and i've read quite a few. It felt like someone looked into my soul and wrote down what i was thinking and feeling.
Thank you to Diana Denholm for the thousands of people she must have helped by writing this insightful and thoughtful book.
