What Our Readers Say
Patterns in Time gave me great direction for my family’s journey with Alzheimer’s. It’s the caregiver-to-caregiver information I was looking for.

I found it very informative and will share the info with children of my friends with Parkinson’s. Lots of helpful information and well presented!! The progression of tasks transferred from the patient to the caregiver was so well illustrated. Because they happen over time, it’s easy for those of us who are friends or family at a distance to forget the huge burden the caregiver has on them. This had given me a deeper understanding and will definitely assist me in helping out friends and family who are caregivers.
