    I would recommend this book with reservations. The author had valuable insights and some bits of wisdom that I was able to put in to practice with my own mom who is living with Alzheimer's right now. The author's tone is very calming and she is very good at expressing the characteristics of patience and living in the "now," as well as forgiveness and reconciliation. The parts that I didn't like about the book were that the author told her story in a round-about way instead of a linear story; her I would recommend this book with reservations.

The parts that I didn't like about the book were that the author told her story in a round-about way instead of a linear story; her own background as well as her relationship with her mom was revealed gradually, so for me the book was a bit slow. She brought in lots of other authorities' voices which also slowed the book down for me. The spiritual journey was less Christian than I was hoping for, but that's not her fault, she was writing from her own spiritual perspective which is totally valid. What it comes down to for me is that Alzheimer's disease is complex and different for everyone, whether you have the disease or love someone who does. And for those of us who love someone with Alzheimer's, we take what we can use from whatever source we find in order to show that love as much as we can. This book helped.

    A different perspective on how to interact with loved ones or anyone really with dementia. Has helped me look at it more as a spiritual journey with my mom. Discovering many holy moments through this journey. All caregivers should read this book, whether professional or personal practice

    Jade Angelica provides great insight into Alzheimer's Disease. She motivates care partners to embrace the true value in life that we can find from those afflicted by Alzheimer's. My thinking and attitude about the disease has changed from reading this book. Jade Angelica provides great insight into Alzheimer's Disease.
