Abstract:

"Approximately six million people have some form of dementia in North America, and they each have an average of five care partners. This number is growing each year and will continue to grow until a cure is found. There are books that are very clinical and books that are fictional, but 'Dementia in the Family' provides clinical information in lay terms within a true story of how dementia affects not just the person with the disease, but everyone around them. The author's gentle humor offers the reader moments of lightness in what could be a very dark read. Anyone can read and learn from this warm, practical, and all-encompassing book on dementia."--
