Product description

Originally published in 1981, The 36-Hour Day was the first book of its kind. Thirty years later, with dozens of other books on the market, it remains the definitive guide for people caring for someone with dementia. Now in a new and updated edition, this best-selling book features thoroughly revised chapters on the causes of dementia, managing the early stages of dementia, the prevention of dementia, and finding appropriate living arrangements for the person who has dementia when home care is no longer an option.

Review quote

"Both a guide and a legend." (Chicago Tribune) "The best guide of its kind." (Chicago Sun-Times) "An excellent book for families who are caring for persons with dementia... A book that physicians can confidently recommend to the families of their patients." (Journal of the American Medical Association) "Excellent guidance and clear information of a kind that the family needs... The authors offer the realistic advice that sometimes it is better to concede the patient's frailties than to try to do something about them, and that a compassionate sense of humor often helps." (New York Times) "An admirably realistic guide to caring for people with Alzheimer's." (New York Review of Books)"
