"Judy is a wonderful physical therapist, who has energy, enthusiasm and the best 'can do' attitude. She has accurately given a description of the major task of 'in-home care' that most people cannot understand. I applaud her efforts; both the monumental task of care for Dean (who was a super guy) and writing this helpful book. Job well done!" -Joyce Dunlevy Cready, RN, BSN, Rehabilitation "I want to commend Mrs. Jennings on the work done to put together this book. It will be a valuable resource for patients and caregivers, and provides an honest and thoughtful look at her experiences with LBD. It was an honor to care for Dean and I know that her work with him and in this book will help others who are going through the same difficult life journey." -Andrew P. Duker, MD, Neurology "This book is medically appropriate and concise. The information has breadth that is not available in other books. I will recommend it to all my patients with Lewy Body Dementia." -James P. Simcoe, MD, Family Practice "What an outstanding caregiver and loving wife to share this most personal knowledge, gained from her heartfelt experience with Lewy Body Dementia." - Peter A. Towne, PT, FAPTA Linda L. Towne, PT, MEd, Orthopedic and Neurological Physical Therapy
