For Caregivers

Caregivers can easily  become overwhelmed managing the needs of a loved one with Alzheimer’s while maintaining their own lives as well. 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. This book is an invaluable resource for families facing Alzheimer’s.
