A Family Guide to Caring for People Who Have Alzheimer Disease, Related Dementias, and Memory Loss

fifth edition, audio edition

Read by Dr. Peter Rabins, this unabridged audio version of the definitive guide for people caring for someone who has dementia features chapters on the causes of dementia, managing the early stages, prevention, and finding appropriate living arrangements for the person who has dementia when home care is no longer an option.

Schapiro Family-Centered Dementia Care Program.

"The best guide of its kind."

"Both a guide and a legend."

"Excellent guidance and clear information of a kind that the family needs... The authors offer the realistic advice that sometimes it is better to concede the patient's frailties than to try to do something about them, and that a compassionate sense of humor often helps."

"Bursting with suggestions, options, caveats, and advice, this work, now in its fifth edition, remains the definitive guide to living with dementia... Professionally produced with consistent volume, the audiobook has calming background music leading into each chapter without overwhelming either reader."
