This review is from: What They Don't Tell You About Alzheimer's (Kindle Edition)
I found this frank account of a son's experience of caring for his mother with dementia a very moving and informative story. The author has an engaging style of writing and it didn't take long to read the book. Each chapter is quite short and leaves you wondering what is going to happen next.
The first half of the book describes the slow decline experienced by the author's mother and the great efforts made by her son to help. The tendency for most families to deny that some form of dementia could be an explanation for forgetfulness or odd behaviour is explained well. A very useful and honest insight into the quality of care provided by the care/nursing homes features in the last sections of the book.
Set in the areas of New York and Maine, it is a story of an american family having to deal with a debilitating disease and, for most of the time, coping well with the challenges. A must read for anyone wanting to gain a better understanding of the illness without getting bogged down with medical terms or a series of case studies. Photos of members of the family are provided at the end of the book.
Glad to see that the book is also available as a paperback which I have recently purchased and was very pleased with the presentation.
If you have read and liked a similar book, Dementia and Mum-Who Really Cares? by Michael Fassio, then you will definitely appreciate this very useful and easy to read account by Robert Bernstein.
