In addition to being a compelling love story, this award-winning memoir shows how one woman solved several specific problems that typically arise when caring for a person with dementia.
Alzheimer's caregivers who have read the book say it helped them very much. Former caregivers say they wish they'd read it when they were caregivers.
Come Back Early Today will make you laugh; it will make you cry. If you're caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's it will give you inspiration and advice. But mostly it will give you hope and it will help you see that there can be happiness - even joy - amid the darkness of dementia.

Having worked in a long term care facility for 30 yrs. I am familiar with assorted dementias. This book provided information about life experiences that happened before the need for nursing home placement. It provided a great deal of insight as to what a "family" member goes through with the journey of a demented loved one, as well as the emotion, appreciation and gratitude when "professionals" step in. I highly recommend this for health care professionals who work with those diagnosed with dementia.
