"The value of this book is apparent from Chapter 1, and in particular the offering of scenarios and how difficult they are for both patient and family. You might know intellectually that your demented mother will one day forget who you are, but it's quite another to actually experience this - so much more difficult than you imagined. You must be prepared for it, and this book helps you do exactly that."—Jay Ingram
