Gained valuable information almost immediatly. Currently still reading, but information so far is excellent. Have learned things I didn't know and some things I had never thought of. Good source for those like myself who lack any knowledge of Dementia and what is happening and what is likely to happen. Glad I bought it.

This is an easy to read and understand book for anyone caring for or living with someone with any form of memory loss. It gives many narratives of people with examples of their behavior, why the behavior, and how to deal with it. I wish I had known about this book when my husband had Alzheimer's, my father had dementia with Parkinson's and my live in friend, 75, has memory loss from many mini strokes. Ordering from Walmart was unbelievable. The book was to arrive "starting with Feb. 8th" but I received an email the night of the 5th that it was already in! The shipping was free to the store and the price was the lowest around...even beat the popular "Am----"!
