When words have lost their meaning by Ruth Abraham

Adam S., Tamilnadu, India By praveen.Trichy, Thirchy, India

First, I want to say I have some interest in Medicine.I was roaming the library with a stack of books under my arm, when this book caught my attention. To be honest, at first I expected this book would be some romantic story. However, I later found it was about the disease Alzheimer.

Ruth Abraham wrote this book by her own experience. Alzheimer disease is the most common form of Dementia. Alzheimer disease mostly affects the people who are above the age of 65.When the disease advances, it may lead patient to confusion, irritability and mood swings. When it get worsened, eventually it may lead to death.

The Author of this book, by her vast clinical experience as a therapist shaped this book as a wonderful, insightful touching text.

Thank you so much for your kind words. I only found this by chance and was delighted to know you had enjoyed the book. I wonder how people relate to Alzheimer's patients in different parts of the world. In India, for instance? Would love to hear.
