For all whose lives are touched by the devastation of Alzheimer's disease, "When Someone You Love Has Alzheimer's" offers guidance, comfort, and hope. This clear, compassionate guide explains: how Alzheimer's is diagnosed and what course it takes; how Alzheimer's affects memory, emotions, and behavior; which symptoms of Alzheimer's can be treated; the spiritual and emotional challenges that caregivers face; how to handle an Alzheimer patient's bizarre behavior; how to explain Alzheimer's to children; how to balance the patient's needs with your own; and when and where to seek help.

A unique combination of sensitive spiritual support and up-to-date factual knowledge. --Dennis J. Selkoe, M.D., Harvard Medical School "As one of millions who has suffered with a family member struck by Alzheimer's, I welcome this book's solace and advice for others on this difficult journey. While we hope and fight for a cure that lies in the future, it is also important to deal with the present-and this fine book is here to help." --Senator John D. Rockefeller IV (Democrat, West Virginia)

"Simple, realistic, reassuring. . . . This is excellent counsel." --Ray Olson, Booklist
