The 36-Hour Day:A Family Guide to Caring for People Who have Alzheimer’s Disease, Related Dementia, and Memory Loss

Caregiving for a person with dementia is a daunting task. It requires the acquisition of new skills and knowledge, the mobilization of resources and family members, and it can leave the primary caregiver feeling burnt out or overwhelmed. On the other hand, caregiving can also produce moments of joy and happiness, a sense of pride, and meaningful connections with loved ones. This is the key message conveyed in The 36-Hour Day: A Family Guide to Caring for People Who have Alzheimer’s Disease, Related Dementia, and Memory Loss by Dr. Nancy Mace and Dr. Peter Rabins.  The book discusses the undeniable challenges associated with caregiving, while deftly outlining numerous tactics for addressing day-to-day and long range caregiving concerns.  It shows that dementia can be managed effectively with moments of delight along the way.


Each family’s story is unique, and that is reflected in the style of The 36-Hour Day.  The guide includes short vignettes and personal stories, which are derived from actual family members that have called or written in to share their experiences. The chapters can be read sequentially, or the reader can skip to sections that are most pertinent to their situation, a useful option for those caregivers and professionals who may have difficulty finding time to read a detailed book.
