|Summary, etc.:||"When Dr. David Kirkpatrick's wife was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2007, their lives--and marriage--changed forever. In this clear and honest guide for those loving a partner with dementia, Dr. Kirkpatrick shares his double perspective as both a loving and grief-stricken husband coping with a profound change in his marriage, and as a geriatric psychiatrist pushing to learn and do as much as he can for his wife. Dr. Kirkpatrick tackles the tough questions about caretaking, grief, loss, love and sex for those whose partners have the disease. Whether your partner has been recently diagnosed or has been living with the disease for many years, Neither Married Nor Single will provide you with effective strategies and coping mechanisms for living and loving in an Alzheimer's marriage."-- Provided by publisher.|
