    Hi Everyone,

    Thought you might like to read an article, Caring for the Caregiver, by Jane Brody of the N.Y. Times, Tuesday, February 18, 2014. She features my new book: Support for Alzheimer's and Dementia Caregivers: The Unsung Heroes. She also wrote the article on her blog on February 17th with the title, Caring for the Alzheimer's Caregivers. well.blogs.nytimes.com

    Let me know what you think,
    Judy

    Hi Dr. Judy!

    I just stumbled upon these forums, and saw this post. Is your book on the Kindle? I think I'm going to need to read it. I am becoming a caregiver, even though my partner has not been diagnosed, yet.

    Our primary care physician thinks my partner is in denial that she has "some memory issues", and when I go in for a checkup next week, she is going with me, and doc & I are going to gently bring up the subject, and the possibility of her going to see a neurologist for more comprehensive assessment.

    Thank you & God bless you!
