- “I really enjoyed reading this book and I would absolutely recommend it to any family dealing with dementia. I felt like the writer was talking to me and making me feel at ease.”

- “I have always been uncomfortable caring for patients with dementia or being with someone who has dementia. I feel this course has taught me how to handle my feelings and emotions about the behavior of people with dementia. I am glad the textbook included a chapter about research in dementia. Families always want answers about what might have caused it and what the science community is doing to understand more about the disease and possible treatment.”

- “Good, down to earth textbook that works for everyone – families, care providers, healthcare workers, and individuals encountering dementia patients.”
