The 36-Hour Day, seventh edition

A Family Guide to Caring for People Who Have Alzheimer Disease and Other Dementias

For 40 years, The 36-Hour Day has been the leading work in the field for caregivers of those with dementia. Written by experts with decades of experience caring for individuals with memory loss, Alzheimer's, and other dementias, the book is widely known for its authoritativeness and compassionate approach to care. Featuring everything from the causes of dementia to managing its early stages to advice on caring for those in the later stages of the disease, it is widely considered to be the most detailed and trusted book available.

Highlighting useful takeaway messages and informed by recent research into the causes of dementia, this new edition has been completely updated. It features

•brand-new content on everything from home care aides to useful apps to promising preventative techniques and therapies
•practical advice for avoiding caregiver burnout—plus tips for when and how to get additional help
•a completely new two-column design that allows readers to quickly access what they need

The central idea underlying this indispensable book—that much can be done to improve the lives of people with dementia and of those caring for them—remains the same. The 36-Hour Day is the definitive dementia care guide.

Reviews

"Thorough and compassionate, offering accessible information and practical advice, The 36-Hour Day is a necessary resource for families living with dementia. Still the gold standard, this book is the trusted reference that families turn to first—and over and over—for guidance and support in caring for someone with Alzheimer's disease."—Lisa Genova, author of Still Alice, reviewing a previous edition or volume

"Both a guide and a legend."—Chicago Tribune, reviewing a previous edition or volume

"Excellent guidance and clear information of a kind that the family needs . . . The authors offer the realistic advice that sometimes it is better to concede the patient's frailties than to try to do something about them, and that a compassionate sense of humor often helps.The New York Times"—The New York Times, reviewing a previous edition

"An admirably realistic guide to caring for people with Alzheimer's."—New York Review of Books, reviewing a previous edition or volume

"The best guide of its kind.Chicago Sun-Times"—Chicago Sun-Times, reviewing a previous edition or volume

"An excellent, practical manual for families and professionals involved in the care of persons with progressive illnesses. The book is specific and thought-provoking, and it will be helpful to anyone even remotely involved with an 'impaired' person. Highly recommended, especially for public and nursing libraries."—Library Journal, reviewing a previous edition or volume

"For a reader who wants a book about Alzheimer's and caregiving, this is still the one to buy. Recommended."—Choice, reviewing a previous edition

"This is for carers and families, but equally should be on the reading list for nursing and medical students. Every ward should have a copy as nursing and clinicians can learn so much from this and ensure a high standard of care for these patients."—Nursing Times, reviewing a previous edition

"An excellent book for families who are caring for persons with dementia. A book that physicians can confidently recommend to the families of their patients."—Journal of the American Medical Association, reviewing a previous edition or volume

"Continues to be the 'bible' of recommendation for any caregiver whose family member suffers from dementia."—Bookwatch, reviewing a previous edition or volume

"Recommended to all caregivers and families of persons with dementia as an indispensable source of valuable information on a very wide range of topics."—Case Management Journals, reviewing a previous edition or volume

"An essential guidebook full of detailed, practical, and compassionate advice for those caring for a PWD. The 36-Hour Day continues to serve as the gold-standard care guide for millions of dementia caregivers."—The Gerontologist, reviewing a previous edition

"We yearn for the day when there is no Alzheimer's, no Alzheimer patients, and no Alzheimer caregivers. Until then, there is The 36-Hour Day."—Jeffrey Cummings, MD, ScD, Director, Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, reviewing a previous edition or volume

"Having lived the chapter and verse of The 36-Hour Day for twenty years, I know how this book empowers families with constructive and compassionate advice. This new edition offers definitive testament to the slow destructive force of Alzheimer's disease and how it challenges families caring for loved ones with dementia. It is a must read by all those who serve our aging generation."—Meryl Comer, author of Slow Dancing with a Stranger: Lost and Found in the Age of Alzheimer's, reviewing a previous edition or volume

"From its knowing title to its knows-everything contents, The 36-Hour Day 'gets' what you're going through. This encyclopedia of dementia care misses no aspect of life affected, from tough behaviors to challenged relationships to medication decisions—describing each with both the honesty and compassion we caregivers deeply need."—Paula Spencer Scott, author of Surviving Alzheimer's: Practical Tips and Soul-Saving Wisdom for Caregivers, reviewing a previous edition or volume
