Critic Reviews

"The best guide of its kind." ( Chicago Sun-Times) "Both a guide and a legend." ( Chicago Tribune) "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." ( The New York Times)

A MUST-read for everyone dealing with Alzheimer's

36-hour Day is absolutely required reading if your friends or family members are having severe memory problems. It took me months to finish it the first time because the content was depressing. I read the most pertinent chapters first, then others when I was ready to absorb the information. I've since heard or read the book twice more, absorbing more as my mother's disease advanced and as I wasn't as shell shocked by our situation. I recommend it to everyone - everyone. And I've given away numerous copies. Read it, then reread it.

good info

Really good information for people dealing with dementia in a loved one. The male reader is not great though, many words are slurred and his cadence is off. The female reader is great, but she only reads snippets.
