Publisher's Summary

A diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease or dementia is devastating. Not only is it devastating for the person who has the disease, it is also devastating for the caregiver. Caregivers carry emotional, financial, and legal burdens.

The Alzheimer's Roadmap series was designed by a caregiver for caregivers. Each book provides checklists on a given topic to help caregivers know what they need to do as they travel through their difficult journey.

Checklists include:

  • How to to talk to your loved one about legal documents
  • Responsibilities of a power of attorney
  • Responsibilities of a health care agent
  • Possible stipulations of living wills
  • List of considerations when writing a will and creating a trust

Very Impressive

I found it helped me understand my mom and why she said certain things or acted in certain ways using the index in the back. My mom is gone now, but this book helped. I highly recommend it.

A Lifesaver

This book has been a lifesaver to my internal battle between the clinician in me and the role of daughter/caregiver. This is truly a MUST READ!

I highly recommend it to anyone who is a caregiver

I highly recommend it to anyone who is a caregiver or a family member of anyone who has this terrible disease. It educates you enough about what's going on to take some of the fear out of dealing with the symptoms and interactions with a person with dementia. It addresses, legal as well as medical and caregiving considerations

Helped immensely. Someone in a similar situation recommended it to me. I finally got around to reading it and wish I had read it earlier as it was very helpful.
