Every day the world reminds us that our population is getting older, and with age comes a variety of issues. For many of us, age also brings the fear of developing Alzheimer's or some other form of dementia. Tougher Love: A Dementia Journey, by Roberta R. Barr, offers a guide through the maze that accompanies dementia. Barr and her family braved that maze through illnesses of her mother- and father-in-law. Readers faced with the issue of dementia in their family will find references, sensible information, and support. Barr also provides information on the nuts and bolts of home care and long-term nursing care. She covers the legal and financial obligations of those who take on the responsibility of caring for someone with dementia. Tougher Love: A Dementia Journey is a story of encouragement. Yes, the experience of having a family member with dementia can be challenging, but with God in your life and prayer as your best friend, it can be one filled with love and deep meaning.
