Originally published in 1981, The 36-Hour Day was the first book of its kind. Thirty years later, with dozens of other books on the market, it remains the definitive guide for people caring for someone with dementia. Now in a new and updated edition, this best-selling book features thoroughly revised chapters on the causes of dementia, managing the early stages of dementia, the prevention of dementia, and finding appropriate living arrangements for the person who has dementia when home care is no longer an option.

The first book to provide a comprehensive look at what it's like to have dementia and the subjective experience of living with progressive memory loss. Few families are untouched by Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia. Moving accounts of what it is like to care for someone with this disease have already been published, as well as how-to books that offer caregivers advice and information on coping. But this book is the first to provide a comprehensive report of what it is like to have dementia oneself—the subjective experience of living with progressive memory loss. Each chapter discusses a different aspect of having dementia, from the initial assessment and diagnosis through placement in a nursing home. The discussions are grounded in qualitative research and case studies, which convey the variable and personal nature of the experience. They seek to help clinicians, researchers, students, and caregivers (both professionals and family members) understand the experience of dementia, and thereby to promote better caregiving through a person-centered approach.

This essential book's guiding principle-that there is much that can be done to enhance the lives of persons who have dementia and those who care for them-remains unchanged. The authoritative dementia care manual is The 36-Hour Day. One of the main causes of impairment and reliance among the aged worldwide, dementia is currently the seventh largest cause of mortality among all diseases. For dementia sufferers, their carers, families, and society as a whole, dementia has physical, psychological, social, and financial repercussions. Lack of knowledge and comprehension about dementia causes stigma and obstructions to diagnosis and care.

Could the Fog Ladies, too, end up "in the soup"?
