The Last Childhood:

A Family Story of Alzheimer's

The Last Childhood is a knowledgeable companion for anyone who has a relative with Alzheimer’s. The experience of the Knowles family through their mother’s lengthy decline yields much wisdom and insight about how to manage – financially, psychologically, and emotionally – and how to make the best decisions. This memoir is beautifully written, heart-felt, and generously informative.
