The 36-Hour Day: A Family Guide for Caring for People Who Have Alzheimer Disease, Related Dementias, and Memory Loss is the classic go-go book on Alzheimer’s Disease, with many editions in print. It discusses the nature and progression of Alzheimer’s Disease, offers help for medical and behavioral issues, make decisions concerning care and living arrangements, and find support as a caregiver.
The 36-Hour Day is useful because it describes everything that may happen in the course of the disease. That strength, however, is what will break your heart as a caregiver. I urge you to use the book as a reference and not to read it cover to cover, because much of what is described may never happen to your parent and reading the parade of horribles is too much to bear.
