"As a caregiver for my husband for 11 years and a caregiver-support-group facilitator; I worry about caregivers taking on too much in an effort to maintain life as it was, prior to the dementia diagnosis.
Therefore, I cautiously approached the reading of “Travel Well with Dementia”. My concerns were immediately diminished. Jan Doughtery used the desire to continue to travel after the dreaded diagnosis, as the venue to teach about the progression of dementia. Jan’s professional grasp as well as her extensive experience with this hideous disease, contributed to the artful integration of the manifestations of dementia with key strategies to address these manifestations. Her key steps and plans are great for travel but applicable to a much broader set of situations that challenge people with dementia and their caregivers. On behalf of caregivers, I appreciate the upbeat theme, travel, seamlessly connected to her instruction of stages of dementia and sensible interventions."

"I was thrilled to receive your new book in the mail today, a magnificent job! It is a work for which you should be very proud. In fact, it should become the acclaimed "travel Bible" for those faced with dementia. You have set a high standard to beat. It is a wonderful way to share your unique professional background in a meaningful way with those who find themselves coping with dementia in its various presentations."
