Praise For New Hope for People with Alzheimer's and Their Caregivers

"This book provides thoughtful, thorough coverage of every aspect of Alzheimer's in language that is always accesible but never oversimplified. Porter Shimer's discussion of the rewards and challenges of caregiving deserves special recognition, as does his exploration of the crucial importance of 'care for the caregiver' strategies. Throughout, Shimer's coverage of divergent approaches to care and treatment remains balanced, responsible, and clearly focused on the personal impact of the disease."
