The Moral Challenge of Alzheimer Disease by Stephen Post
This is one of the best books I’ve ever read on the topic of Alzheimer’s. It’s short, but packs a punch.
From Amazon: “In the second edition of The Moral Challenge of Alzheimer Disease, Post updates his highly praised account of the major ethical issues relating to dementia care. With chapters organized to follow the progression from mild to severe and then terminal stages of dementia, Post discusses topics including the experience of dementia, family caregiving, genetic testing for Alzheimer disease, quality of life, and assisted suicide and euthanasia. New to this edition are sections dealing with end-of-life issues (especially artificial nutrition and hydration), the emerging cognitive-enhancing drugs, distributive justice, spirituality, and hospice, as well as a critique of rationalistic definitions of personhood.”
Option B by Sheryl Sandberg & Adam Grant
Not a book specific to dementia, but required reading for anyone dealing with grief. I mean it, this book is so insightful and filled with practical advice on living life in the midst of and after some of the toughest blows life has to offer.
