This book contains information concerning everything from caring for your loved one with dementia to caring for yourself as the Caregiver. There Is also information about finances, long-term care, legal issues and more. One of the best things about this book Is that it explains how the person with dementia feels and the different ways they might respond to what they’re going through. I highly recommend this book for anyone that is caring for someone with dementia. I truly find this book very helpful And I go back to it over and over for reminders and helpful information as a caregiver for my husband. I’d also like to mention that my own doctor recommended this book knowing I was a Caregiver and my husband’s neurologist recommended this book.
