Reviews

"Both of my parents suffered with Alzheimer's Disease. At times I felt overwhelmed and lost with the strain of it all and not knowing where to turn or who to turn to. If only I'd had Simon's book at my fingertips during those bleak years. It would have been a friendly, enlightening and informative guide through a very dark tunnel." -- Fiona Phillips
