What the Critics Say

"This is a clearly written and comprehensive book that addresses the common and uncommon issues that arise in caring for someone with Alzheimer disease. It is practical and never condescends. I highly recommend it ot anyone who has loved one suffering from dementia.” (Peter V. Rabins, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and author of The 36-Hour Day)

"Talking to Alzheimer’s is quite remarkable: sensitive and tender in its tone, but also shrewd and useful. The whole book has this tenacious emphasis on genuine respectfulness; it all rings true and is written with so much informed respect for the loved person. I think it’s a wise and lovely little book and I’m grateful to Claudia for writing it." (Jonathan Kozol, Alzheimer’s family member and author of Savage Inequalities)

"I was so taken with this practical and warm approach to visiting and crating enjoyable and meaningful times with loved ones. Visiting is clearly recognized as an issue…and some families become so disappointed and disheartened that they stop coming. This targeted, doable book helps people come to terms with what they can really do." (Betty Ransom, Director of Education and Training for the National Capital Area Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association)
