"Alzheimer's Disease can beset any family. My father was a victim of Alzheimer's and I know that seeing a loved one change from an intelligent, vital, and productive family member to a confused, dependent, and childlike adult is devastating. It is a change that afflicts the entire family, but no one more than the immediate caregiver. "In this book, Nellie Kidd-Madison recounts vividly the daily struggle of living with an Alzheimer's patient. In a simple down-to earth and often humorous manner, Nellie shares what she has learned about the disease over the course of the past thirteen years, and how she has learned to cope with each new behavior pattern. It is a testimony of her courage, innovation, and above all, her love for John. "If you have picked this book to read, it is likely that you, too, have a loved one with Alzheimer's. I have no doubt that you will be able to identify with Nellie and John and am confident that you will find useful information within these pages." Mark Hatfield Former U. S. Senator

Journalist and author Mary K. Doyle has written a poignant but practical handbook for Alzheimer's caregivers that will enlighten anyone touched by this debilitating disease. She offers straightforward guidelines for caregivers and their families, important lessons she learned in the eleven years she has been caring for her beloved husband, Marshall. She writes frankly about: recognizing the warning signs of Alzheimer's; understanding the disease's typical progression; managing conflict with family and friends; the importance of caring for yourself; the emotional, physical, and financial costs of caregiving; and how, when, and where to find help-- including sound advice on making the critical choice among assisted-living facilities when that time comes.
