What health professionals are saying about I Care:

I Care is a comprehensive book that offers a greater understanding of how to manage the difficulties of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. I only wish this book was available when I was caring for my mother, Rita Hayworth, who suffered from Alzheimer's disease.”
Princess Yasmin Aga Khan
President, Alzheimer's Disease International

I Care is just what the health care community has been waiting for to fill the void for people caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's or a related dementia.”
Dr. Stephen Jones, Specialty Geriatric Medicine
Greenwich Hospital

“With a world-wide, mounting population of persons diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, it's exciting that a book is now available specifically to help caregivers navigate the difficulties encountered in caring for someone suffering with cognitive impairments. I Care offers essential and fundamental advice for best-care practices, but it also provides a sense of real hope that quality of life issues will not necessarily diminish when effective care management principles are adopted.”
Marc Wortmann
Executive Director, Alzheimer's Disease International

“By shifting the perspective from caregiving to care partnering, this book offers an important reminder that there remain many capabilities that need to be recognized, maximised, and respected in persons with dementias. Rather than being limited to doing to, the care focus is expanded to enabling and empowering these individuals to function at their remaining best. This enlightened view not only benefits persons with dementias, but has the potential to offer a more meaningful and less stressful experience for their care partners.”
