Written by a registered nurse with forty-five years experience and fifteen years running a care home, it contains advice, suggestions on managing at home and if the patient is in care, and resources on how to cope. As well as the stages of Alzheimer’s, there is also practical advice on how to keep an Alzheimer’s patient occupied and feeling useful, as well as managing many common daily symptoms.
