About the Author

Dr. Marie Marley is an expert grant writer who, over the years, acquired a keen understanding of many geriatric topics, including dementia, but none of that could have prepared her for the sometimes heartbreaking demands of loving and caring for a person with Alzheimer's disease. Come Back Early Today is Marie's first foray into creative nonfiction, where she describes her remarkable relationship with Dr. Edward Theodoru. Marie has been a grant writer at both the University of Cincinnati Department of Family Medicine and the American Academy of Family Physicians. She lives in Olathe, Kansas with her Shih Tzu, Peter, whom Ed loved dearly, and her younger pup, Joey, whom Ed would have been so delighted to meet.

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.
