Over the past 4+ years since my husband was diagnosed with dementia, probable Alzheimer's Disease, the Alzheimer's Reading Room newsletter and research reports that Bob puts out daily has been very helpful for me, as well as other caregivers. I appreciate his thoroughness, utilizing professionals in the field, and sharing his own experiences.  — Norma

The Alzhimiers Reading Room has been an excellent source of support and practical advice for me when my dad's alzhmiers became difficult. It's practical advice and honest reflection on this cruel disease made me understand what my dad was going through and I have learned so much through the blog. God bless you Bob DeMarco for your work.  — Vanessa

I refer patients to Mr. DeMarco's blog continually as a Social Worker in our practice as a Center of Excellence for Alzheimer's Disease at Upstate Medical University in Central New York. I also share personal similar caregiving experiences, and have found him to be a source of inspiration and encouragement for others as well as myself!  — Karen
