"Bob DeMarco knows what he's talking about. Not only was he the primary caregiver for his mother with Alzheimer's, but he put in the time and dedication it took to learn more about dementia. It's clear that this lit a fire in him, and it's a fire that you can't find elsewhere on the Web. 
Alzheimer's Reading Room is an online library on dementia care. If you need to know about it, you'll find it here."
-  Rachael Wonderlin, author of "When Someone You Know is Living in a Dementia Care Community" and founder of the blog, Dementia By Day.

"Alzheimer’s Reading Room is an invaluable resource for caregivers looking to gain advice from an expert caregiver. 
Bob was able to make the best of a terrible situation with his mother dealing with Alzheimer’s, and he is continuing to help out other caregivers to this day so that they can take real, effective advice and make their situation better for their loved ones. 
He is also a big advocate for finding effective medicine and solutions to help treatments for this devastating disease. He is very knowledgeable on both the appropriate treatments through medicine and the appropriate approach from an emotional standpoint. 
The number of people that he has helped deal with Alzheimer’s is exponential."
