Insight Into The Caregiver's Journey


You see chapter headings like: Accepting the Diagnosis, Beginning to Cope, Finding Support, Achieving Compassion, and Questions and Answers about Alzheimer's. My expectations were then for a factual book dealing with the emotional issues of the disease. It was a shock to open the pages and see the poetry format. These might make good discussion starters for an Alzheimer's support group. Topics like grief or anger make the reader think about their reaction to the changes going on. Probably I'd have given this more stars if the cover had prepared me for what was inside.

What it feels like for family & friends


Sympathetic and wise counsel for dealing with the many frustrations for the patients and their loved ones as they cope with the losses of memory and understanding, as well as physical problems.



If a love one has Alzheimer, this is the book to read. It was consoling and helped me to understand the disease. I highly recommend. Thank you

Sensitive and informative


I had read another book by Rabbi Grollman and found such wisdom in its simplicity. This book presents a sensitive topic in a similar way.
