This would have been a good book for me to read as a youth when my great grandmother went down hill and eventually died from complications to Alzheimer's. When she went after my great grandfather with a knife because she did not recognize him, my family knew she had to be sent to a nursing home.

Because it's too hard to stretch them over the exterior.

@shrdlu thanks for this. I don't mean the book (though it looks wonderful, and i'll be grabbing a copy) - but the blog link. I have a parent with MCI, and have received answers ranging from "it's just old age" to "Could progress to Alzheimer's. Could remain exactly as it is. We'll see" and the frustration in dealing with... well with who knows what, has created more than a little stress for everyone involved. Dad sat down with this blog for hours, reading through, clicking through to referenced articles, and he felt very helped by it all. Sorry for straying from the deal at hand, but i wanted to say thank you.

@goatcrapp: I love his blog, and admire him greatly for doing it. I also suggest "Still Alice" by Lisa Genova.

"Still Alice is a compelling debut novel about a 50-year-old woman's sudden descent into early onset Alzheimer's disease, written by first-time author Lisa Genova, who holds a Ph. D in neuroscience from Harvard University. "

Lisa Genova is a remarkable writer, and the book is surprisingly upbeat. I really recommend it. Give your dad a hug from me. Nothing is ever easy.
