Great overview of all the stages of care

This book was very helpful in its presentations of scenarios and descriptions of how the caregivers handled their situations with loved ones who had Alz. I think this technique was very effective in helping the reader understand what tactics can be used when caring for their loved one, as well as relate to the emotions felt while going through this experience.

This book did a good job walking the reader through each stage of Alz and knowing what to expect and in describing what strategies can be used to care for the loved one, the importance of self-care, how to handle difficult or problematic situations, what to ask medical staff at each stage, etc. It spoke to the reader gently, while also keeping it real.

You'll Be Equipped

There was a love-hate going on as I read. I didn't know much about Alzheimers and she explained what I'm facing as a Caregiver in such detail. I feel so educated and equipped now. But the story of Alz is so heartbreaking. I appreciate how she ends each chapter with encouragement.
