Publisher's Summary

Through five editions, The 36-Hour Day has been an essential resource for families who love and care for people with Alzheimer disease. Whether a person has Alzheimer disease or another form of dementia, he or she will face a host of problems. The 36-Hour Day will help family members and caregivers address these challenges and simultaneously cope with their own emotions and needs.

Featuring useful takeaway messages and informed by recent research into the causes of and the search for therapies to prevent or cure dementia, this edition includes new information on:

  • Devices to make life simpler and safer for people who have dementia
  • Strategies for delaying behavioral and neuropsychiatric symptoms

The central idea underlying the book - that much can be done to improve the lives of people with dementia and of those caring for them - remains the same. The 36-Hour Day is the definitive dementia care guide.

Listen to narrator before buying!

Terrible narration; narrator sounds like she’s yelling much of the time. Can’t stand to listen to it for very long.

Great information

A wealth of information and a lot to digest if you have a loved one going through this disease. This audiobook need to come with a PDF workbook of all the prominent information you need. I am buying the kindle version as a refresher and reference guide. Blessings to everyone who goes through this and to the caretaker who had to endure this journey. One Love.

Awesome Book

I would recommend skipping the first chapter. It's like a fast forward from the beginning of the disease to the very end. It's quite overwhelming and frightening. It put me in a panic mode. In reality, AD (or probably any type of dementia) doesn't progress that rapidly.

a thorough guide for families

I really think It exhausted every aspect of Dementia from a family and friend point of view. to achieve a good understanding of Dementia, and the support they can ask for, guiding you step by step.
