5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 starsHelp for Caregivers
Posted by Anonymous on 5/30/2001
Cuando el Día tiene 36 horas (The 36 Hour Day) by Nancy L. Mace and Peter V. Rabins is an excellent resouce for those trying to cope with tasks of caregiving to people suffering from Alzheimer's Disease. Alzheimer's Disease robs hundreds of thousands of people of their ability to remember and process new information. While this disease directly affects individuals, it indirectly affects family members, caregivers, friends, co-workers who are left with the seemingly impossible task of providing support, care, and help to these individuals. Worse still, is the countless hours of waiting and vigilance. Currently, there is no cure for Alzheimer's Disease. Family members and caregivers suffer knowing that fact and that they are unable to stop its progression. This book provides very useful, practical helps to cope with this type of impotence as well as strategies for dealing with the other numerous aspects of this disease, such as all the financial, legal, medical, psychological and emotional matters that are sure to affect the caregivers much more than the person suffering from this disese. No one knows better than the person who has experienced the affects of Alzheimer's that it is more important to care for oneself if one is going to be an effective caregiver. This wonderful book is the perfect guide to understand how to be effective doing both.
5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 starsexcellent resource!!!
Posted by Robert W. Smith on 5/27/2006
this book was published about 5 years ago. at that time, it was up to date. while much of the neuroimagining and neuroscience has changed during that time, frankly, little has changed in how we protect, communicate with, comfort, love our loved ones or how we take care of ourselves. this book is longer than most. i like that. it gives background information, discusses alternatives with pros and cons, whereas some of the shorter alzheimer books are written more like a physician's pocket resource guide. this is an excellent book. it is one that i have recommended and loaned out to patients' families dozens of times. i always hear the same thing - the book is an invaluable resource. my hope is that nancy mace updates it again soon! this book is well worth the price, new, and perhaps more (did i really say that?)

I got an excellent condition book in a reasonable time frame. Plus, the seller used to live in my country and wrote a note on her experience that made me feel proud of my country.

Posted by Andy's daughter on 6/7/2007
I am sorry if you need this book because your loved one has Alzheimer's Disease or a related dementia but this book will be a valuable resource from the early stages through end of life care. I was given a copy at an Alzheimer's Association meeting and read it cover to cover and was so glad I did. Best of luck to you and know you are not alone.

Posted by Arthur Jones on 4/10/2007
This is a excellent book and reference for those learning to deal with Alzheimer. Plenty of resources and ideas of what to look for when caring for someone with this disease. You can get a good idea of what to expect and how to help those suffering with this devastating disease. Easy to understand and read. Can't recommend this book enough.
