About the Author:

Frena Gray-Davidson is a bestselling health writer and educator.

From Library Journal:

This book aims to help families coping with a member who suffers from a dementing illness to understand healthy caregiving, discover meaning and purpose in their undertaking, and find ways to handle difficult situations and to identify solutions. Its particular strength lies in its discussion of the emotional aspects of caregiving, i.e., family crisis, acceptance, letting go, and moving on. It is less useful as a resource for explaining the symptoms, traits, and progression of the disease or discussing important issues, such as ongoing medical care and financial and legal planning. In addition, information in the appendix is dated and inadequate. Libraries wanting to establish caregiving collections should start with such titles as Nancy Mace's The 36-Hour Day (see Karen McNally Bensing's "Rejuvenating Your Books on Aging," LJ 10/1/93, p. 55-58) and David L. Carroll's When Your Loved One Has Alzheimer's Disease (see Susan Hagloch's "Best Lay Medical Books for Public Libraries 1988-89," LJ 11/1/89, p. 55-57). Recommended only for larger libraries with extensive aging/consumer health collections.-- Vicki Bloom, Benjamin B. Green-Field National Alzheimer's Lib. & Resource Ctr., Alz heimer's Assn., Chicago
