What others are saying about “Caring for a Husband with Dementia”:

“Good work. A much needed book.”  – Merrilee, Caregiver

“This small outstanding book is thoughtful, well-written and comprehensive. It contains a wealth of helpful information for caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s. It includes discussions of dealing with one’s feelings as well as an abundance of practical, down-to-earth helpful tips”.
– Marie Marley, PhD (Come Back Early Today)

“I have read this book, and find it to be well written, yet easy to follow, while containing a wealth of information for those wives caring for spouses with dementia. I found especially helpful, the author’s careful descriptions of difficult behaviours encountered in Dementia, how to effectively deal with those behaviours, and how to access resources and assistance.The book’s detailed content reflects the expertise, and experience of the author, and I would therefore highly recommend it, not only to wives of spouses with Dementia, but to all who have an interest in Dementia.”  
– Lynda Greaves, Retired Nurse

“This should be a mandatory read for anyone about to start the Dementia journey with their spouse. And their family! Angela tells you where to turn for help and how to ask for it. As I was reading this book I couldn’t help but think that this a one self help book that should be read by every member of the family. Caring for a man you love and who is becoming a stranger is a daunting commitment. And this book explains so many of the things you worry about . And how to deal with it! Everything you wanted to know but didn’t know where to find the answers.”

    Angela;
    As a fellow social worker and friend, just wanted you to know that I am very proud of you. What an accomplishment!
    Brooke and I are looking forward to coming to McNally Robinson on April 16th to be part of your book launch. Perhaps the author will sign my copy of her book?
    Congratulations! Looking forward to reading (and using) this important family resource.
