Readers Respond to Dignity for the Deeply Forgetful

Book: Dignity for Deeply Forgetful People

"Dignity is a moving and uplifting book, and a really great contribution to the lives and hopes of thousands, perhaps millions, of people."
  -- Keith Ward, Professor Emeritus, Oxford University

"I see Dignity for the Deeply Forgetful as a deep and sensitive work that can serve society, the afflicted, as well as the challenged caregivers. I look forward to reading it in depth this summer. Personal experience with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias always benefits from reflection stimulated by just such a read. I thank you for the effort."
  -- Craig Malborn, Professor of Medical Humanities, Stony Brook University

"Dignity for Deeply Forgetful People is more than fabulous! So concretely helpful, and with anecdotes from living, genuinely compassionate people, and respectful guidance and reverence for persons - a holy work."
  -- Sister Helen Jean Novy, Magnificat High School, Cleveland Ohio

"What compassion! What clinical humility and acumen! It is a pleasure Stephen to know you and an honor. Thank you for this lovely book.
  -- Gayatri Devi, M.D., Director, New York Memory & Healthy Aging Services

"Dr. Post has a unique gift; he writes with heart-felt empathy and compassion while sharing important information and vital practical tips. He has a depth of under-standing regarding the challenges of the care partner and of the person who is deeply forgetful, as well as for complicated issues related to Alzheimer's Disease. I first read Post's dementia-related work years ago and his concept of "the deeply forgetful" helped me become more mindful as a caregiver."
  -- Deborah Shouse and Ron Zoglin, Co-Founders

"I found Dignity for Deeply Forgetful People to be a powerful read. I couldn't put the book down and read it over two days. You had me in the first chapter when you wrote, 'Caregivers know that deeply forgetful people should never be dismissed on the basis of a relative diminishment of intellect. ... Equality of consciousness is more fundamental to moral standing than equality of intellect and memory.' What a powerful statement. Even those who are not dealing with deeply forgetful people should read your book. It is so informative and well documented with references."
  -- John K Graham, MD, DMin, President, Institute for Spirituality and Health at Houston Medical

"I read Dignity for Deeply Forgetful People after coming home from seeing my sister with dementia. I was so impressed and moved by Post's knowledge of this condition. I am a care taker and it has been hard on me on a number of levels."
  -- Frank Sangermano, Reader and Care Taker

"I just finished reading Dignity for Deeply Forgetful People and was profoundly moved. What a gift you are to our community! Your wisdom, your sensitivity, your caring heart and your spirituality were evident on every page. I have often felt in working with my deeply forgetful clients that I was on 'holy ground,' and your words definitely supported that belief. I think this book should be required reading for every health care professional, every elder law attorney and every clergy. I am deeply grateful for this book and for your life. Thank you."
  -- Fay Bix, Alzheimer's Attorney and Advocate

"Enjoyed your book immensely. Every caregiver must read your book. You covered many aspects of caring that I have been talking about for the last eight years. You did it much more eloquently and in simple easily understandable language."
  -- Jean Makesh, CEO Lantern Group, and Founder of, educational platform for Seniors, Caregivers & Families
