This is the finest book thus far written about the experience of Alzheimer's disease

This is the finest book thus far written about the experience of Alzheimer's disease. Readers will be deeply impressed by Sabat's many detailed observations and interpretations of the psychological needs of persons with dementia, and with his case examples of how responding to these needs can be beneficial. This book is an immediate classic not only because it qualitatively defines the experience of dementia better than all previous attempts, but also because is humanely releases the reader from the grip of invalid and ultimately harmful assumptions about the deeply forgetful.

Steven Sabat is Associate Professor of Psychology at Georgetown University. He is a member of the Board of Directors of the Washington area chapter of the Alzheimer's Disease Association, and has co-led support groups for Alzheimer's sufferers.

Written to appeal to general readers as well as professionals and students, it shows what sufferers can still do despite the loss of certain cognitive abilities, and offers constructive ways to improve the relationship between sufferers and healthy others.
