Learning a family member or friend has Alzheimer’s disease can be devastating, but it is becoming more prevalent in our society. How do you treat someone with this depilating disease? What will happen to your loved one?

Taylor has answered these and many other questions in this informative book about Alzheimer’s. Diagnosed with the disease at age 61, this former psychologist shows us his slow transformation through a series of essays.

There are really no definite answers for Alzheimer’s, but Taylor asks all the right questions from a first-hand point of view. Not just for health care professionals, lay-people will find this book easy to read and comforting. He buts the focus back on the patient instead of only seeing the disease.
