In short, the fourth edition... is a comprehensive resource guide that will help you learn to care for family members. -- Auggie Moore Large Print Reviews 2006 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 excellent, practical manual for families and professionals involved in the care of persons with progressive illnesses... The book is specific and thought-provoking, and it will be helpful to anyone even remotely involved with an 'impaired' person... Highly recommended, especially for public and nursing libraries. Library Journal The 36-Hour Day continues to be the 'bible' of recommendation for any caregiver whose family member suffers from dementia. Midwest Book Review 2007
