Caring for Your Friend with Dementia
By: Jo Ann Rosenfeld, M.D.
About the Book
It can be very difficult to see the beginning signs of dementia in one of our loved ones. We may not know just if and when they require assistance beyond our control.
Caring for Your Friend with Dementia is direct advice for a person caring for a person with dementia. It also includes medical thoughts that Dr. Rosenfeld gives to her patients, is readable in a few hours, and is medical, but few have any ideas about what they are getting into.
