More than 5 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer's disease or a related form of dementia. By the year 2030, experts estimate that as many as 66 million people around the world will be faced with this life-altering disease. Unfortunately, these staggering statistics impact millions of caregivers, too. Compared with all types of caregivers, those who assist someone with dementia experience the highest levels of burnout, depression, poor health, and premature death. A Dignified Life, Revised and Expanded offers hope and help with a proven approach.

This book has some useful ideas, but be warned that it has a very preachy, self-righteous tone that is hard to take when you are already stretched to your limit and beyond taking care of someone who cannot take care of him or herself. There are better books out there. "A Loving Approach to Dementia Care" by Laura Wayman is one. Frankly, pet care books are more helpful than this one. "The Other End of the Leash" by Patricia McConnell comes to mind.
