A must for someone getting the news that a loved one has dementia.
I have given about 15 of these books as gifts. This book is a terrific guide, from beginning to end, on how to handle the difficult situation of having a loved one with dementia.
I recommend this book for anyone who loves someone over the…
I wish I’d had this book three years ago when my mother first showed the slightest differences in personality, little fears and confusion totally unlike her. Once the hallucinations and hysteria started, my family and I scrambled to find doctors, to organize finances, and to change living arrangements so she would be safe. We were lucky, and Mom is secure and relatively content in a memory care/assisted living facility close to us.
I recommend this book for anyone who loves someone over the age of 50. Mr. Watts has succeeded in writing a book loaded with good information on Alzheimer’s Disease for the layman, as well as planning advice and anecdotes from his personal experiences with his mother, an AD patient.
Written with compassion and experience, “This Ice Cream is Delicious” will offer hope when it is most needed!
This book has been the perfect resource guide time and time again over the last year while dealing first with my mother whom had Alzheimer’s disease, then when faced with my brother’s diagnosis of Frontotemporal Dementia. Henry Watts really touches upon every aspect of Dementia care; from diagnosis to living situations, society stigmas, difficult family circumstances, diet and so much more. What I like most about the book is the constant reminder that people with mental disabilities should not be so severely limited. We all have the human right to be out in the world and LIVE…..socially, emotionally, and spiritually. Although Alzheimer’s disease can be a serious topic, this book is written with a happy, caring and humorous heart. The reader needs this when faced with a difficult challenge such as this horrific disease. I have a library of Dementia books on my shelf, however “This Ice Cream is Delicious” is my favorite!

This book is a very special self-help book for family caregivers of loved ones with Alzheimer’s. Through his own experiences, first with his mother, and later on as a professional private caregiver, the author tells the very authentic story of having a family member battle the disease. If you can read only one book about helping those with Alzheimer’s, this should be the one.
