Caring for Maria 

An experience of successfully coping with Alzheimer's Disease

Publisher's Description:

Caring for a relative or friend suffering from Alzheimer's Disease can be profoundly distressing. This most common form of dementia, that destroys the mind and the memory, can affect any one of us, male or female, and is not restricted to the elderly.

Caring for Maria is the extraordinary account of the reality of caring for one sufferer. Beautifully written by Maria's primary carer, it is based on diaries that were written to help alliviate the great pressure of caring. This intense, yet at times humorous, book presents a story of exceptional human courage, determination and compassion.

Caring for Maria will inspire and help those who are directly or indirectly involved with sufferers of Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia, as well as inform professional workers in the field. Along with the other, rarer, forms of dementia, Alzheimer's affects about three quarters of a million people in the United Kingdom alone. This new book is a timely and much needed source of guidance and suport.

"People concerned with Alzheimer's will find this book inspiring." Mavis Nicholson, TV Journalist & Writer
