Are the Keys in the Freezer? is an artful blend of practical advice and the compelling story of a family's search for the right care for their mother with dementia.

This well-researched book is a must-read for families in the US looking for resources and ideas about care facilities, hospices, finances and costs of care, advance directives and other topics related to managing the affairs of the elderly with dementia. A story of conflict and of light-hearted moments, Are the Keys in the Freezer? is the rich personal testimony of a family's struggle to navigate the confusing world of dementia care choices for their mother. The book is an insider's guide to unravelling medical, legal, and regulatory issues that affect the quality of care for loved ones who cannot make care decisions for themselves.

The book's easy, conversational tone turns complex issues into everyday language, making it an easy read for newcomers to the world of caring for people with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Frank and poignant, with the optimum balance of personal storytelling and actionable guidance. This highly readable guide for dementia caregivers blends a medical memoir with useful advice...With considerable skill, the authors interweave their story with the issues they faced, drawing upon their own situations to illustrate what they didn't know at the time...It is these tools the authors share in a tightly organized, well-written work. -- Kirkus Reviews--March 2014
The personal, medical, and legal experiences gained and lessons learned by the sisters over the preceding six years of care form the backbone of this work that will be priceless to families facing a similar road...The combination of the detailed information with the insights gained from caring for a loved one with the condition makes this essential for affected families. ..This excellent work will, unfortunately, find a wide audience. -- Library Journal, September 2014, Starred Review
