I know it’s not going to be easy and what sticks in my mind is the importance of looking after myself. Your personal input touched a chord that no website could match and I will heed your advice.
An excellent training session and no problem with my back- I can’t believe it! Thank you.
You never asked my to do anything you did not believe I could accomplish.

Reg…. a wonderful series of useful information on memory loss. Jane has helped me understand what we need to be aware of, cope with and plan for as we enter old age. The best part of these books are that they fit in your pocket for easy reference, but, more importantly, the writing is big enough that I can see it.
For anyone going through the dramatic effect of dealing with not only the person who has this illness, but also the authorities, this series of books will be such a support for you.
