In the past I have mentioned two books that are must reads. The first is the classic Still Alice. This book is from the standpoint of the Loved One who is developing the disease. It has been made into an excellent movie. The second was from the viewpoint of the Caregiver called "Come back Early Today" by Dr Marie Marley. Both of these books are readily available with the latter being available on Amazon or I believe direct from the author. It used to be but I am not sure if it still is.
The third book I am now adding to my list of books to read is readily available at Wal Mart and had a 40% off sticker on it reducing the price to $10 and that is Chicken Soup for the Soul - Living with Alzheimer's and Other Dementias. All three of these books are excellent reads. What I like about the Chicken Soup for the Soul books is they have short chapters dealing with just one topic making it an easy read.
