“ Great work! Carol has gone above and beyond in offering support, knowledge, and humor. Carol shares her experiences, adds her developed knowledge and skill, and then injects moments to pause and laugh. I hope those who find themselves struggling with caregiving will take a look at this short and helpful book.”
“Bless you Carol. I bought a copy the day you did the workshop at First Presbyterian. I then went back and got two more copies. Both folks I have gifted say it is the clearest most understandable help they have received. What makes me weep in frustration are the times I know this knowledge would have made such a difference in my response to care receivers. My momma used to say, ‘honey, you did the best you could with what you knew at the time. Let go. Let God, and get on with it.’ Anyway, thank you for Let’s Talk Dementia and for your weekly newsletter.”

“Carol, Let’s Talk Dementia helped me understand what was happening to my mom and how to become positive and helpful instead of angry and frustrated. Your book is written in a spirit of love and concern with humor that makes the journey better – sort of a roadmap. It’s a complicated chemistry and biology lesson explained so I could understand the course and process of dementia. A must read for all caregivers!”
— C. Kilpatrick
“Your book has touched and blessed my life so much. I used the skills today at the nursing home visiting my husband’s uncle. I made sure to touch his arm lightly, make gestures when explaining things, made sure he could see me head on. Talked soothing, and we talked about the birds in the feeder outside his window as if it was the most important thing in the world to him. Bless you, Carol!!!!”

“Spot on advice from someone who knows dementia. If someone you love has dementia, you need this book.”
— Dr. Steve Oehme, Rock Hill, SC
“Carol, thank you for my copy of your book. I started reading and had a difficult time putting it down. I cared for my husband for 20 months with the help of Dr. Bolouri. I kept him at home with the aid of sitters who loved and cared for him like family. Your book is the only one I read that even came close to having a real understanding of what one deals with while caring for a loved one with dementia. Wish it had been available 2 years ago. This is a great handbook for a caregiver. It is very easy reading with good explanations.” Thank you.
