Alzheimer's Caregivers

Coach Broyles' Playbook for Alzheimer's Caregivers: A Practical Tips Guide is book organized much like a coach's playbook. The author approached Alzheimer's disease much like he would have approached an opponent on the field, with a solid game plan and a dedicated team. He promised himself that someday he would share all that he had learned from his research and his experience with Alzheimer's disease to other families and now he is doing just that in this creative approach. The Playbook talks about the three stages of Alzheimer's disease which are the early, middle, and late stage. There is also a resource guide at the end of the Playbook that lists various contact information for organizations.

I've only heard wonderful things about this book--and it's great for male caregivers who are caring for their spouses and others.
I'm so glad there are more resources than ever. I cared for my mother for close to 15 years and have seen such strides made in regard to info in the past 2-3 years.
