Hi
How can I obtain a copy of 'Extreme Caring' I cared for my Mum for four years. She got Vascular Dementia when she was 97 until she was 102 years of age. My Mum died in 2012. Now my husband has Mix/Alzheimer's & Dementia and I'm caring for him at home. I would like to know more about 'how to care' to KNOW that I'm doing OK for him.
Sincerely

Myrna CARR
