When the first edition of this book appeared in late 1999, it became the antidote for the scary books about Alzheimer's disease that have dominated the literature since the 1980s. By focusing on the early stages of the disease, Kuhn provides the right dose of help and hope to those struggling to come to terms with the myriad changes in roles and responsibilities of all concerned. The second edition provides updated information while leaving intact positive messages about living with Alzheimer's and not merely surviving through it. A new chapter gives voice to experienced family members who share valuable lessons. This book provides accurate information about the disease and useful tips that enable family members, friends and interested professionals to cope with someone's memory loss and other thinking problems. It's the one book that should be read by all starting down this difficult road. And doctors should be writing down this title on a prescription pad!

My 84 year-old mother has moderate level Alzheimer's and I am her sole caregiver. This is by far the best book (of seven) that I've read about how to care for aging parents. I read it through and reread many parts, underlining important things just like I used to do in a college textbook. It was very informative. The book tells about the progression of the disease, what's "normal" for a person with Alzheimer's, what to expect and what steps to take. I highly recommend the book for anyone caring for elderly people, whether the elders have Alzheimer's or another age-related dememtia.

My mother was diagnosed with early stage Alzheimer's ... I had no idea how to help. This book is an excellent source of information from the diagnostic stage to finding help within the community, making the house safe and easing her/our journey. Good referances and practicle information.

Very good book for someone with a loved one who has Alzheimer's. This book is packed with lots of useful information. It helped me to better understand what my mom's life is like with this disease and how I can help her. I'm thinking of buying another copy for my family, so I can keep mine to refer back to!

This book is a wonderful resource for anyone who is interested in learning more about Alzheimer's Disease. For those of us who have loved ones personally affected, it's even more meaningful. This book is a practical guidebook to help your loved ones or your friends as they navigate the slippery slopes of A.D. The completely updated third edition gives both the afflicted and the caregivers valuable information and hope.
